Dip-Dip In Rat Island

Back to the hotel around 5pm and waited for Andy to finish his classes... by the time we got ready for dinner, it was almost 6pm and it was time for Dinner! Andy suggested Rat Island for food .. does it sound appetizing?  LOL... Well,  we three ladies readily agreed... anything goes as long as the food is good!
Pasar Pulau Tikus... Rat Island Market! 
LOL...
So what is special here.... Andy?
Lok-Lok... or should I say.. Dip-Dip?
Yes, Lok-Lok as we used to call them during the yester-years...
These were served on the table and all you got to do is to choose 
and dip them into the hot boiling water in the middle...
That is why I called it Dip-Dip....
What shall I eat..... hmmmm.....
 Different type of sauces to choose from....
At the same time, we ordered Fried Koay Teow...
and ... my favourite drink...
All-In-One....
 Kind of messy, right?
Our dinner was quite cheap...
Only RM28 for the Lok-Lok...
And we were filled to the brim....
 
Looks like Andy enjoyed his dinner... 
We surely did.. but .....
Something is still missing after dinner...
Can you guess what it is? 
First Correct answer will get one small souvenir.. 
hahahaa...
The answer will be in tomorrow's post!!

  1. I like this type...with clear boiling water and not the satay gravy type that they have in Malacca. The gravy coiling like the mud pools in Rotorua, New Zealand...or worse...ummm..never mind! Hehehehe!!!! Then people eat the stick halfway, dip in again to get more gravy...all the saliva inside. Eyewwwwwww!!!!!

  8. Dessert or coffee is missing? We have this here! It is called Fondue. You dip the protein in the hot oil. Then for desserts there are cubes of cake or fruit and you dip in the hot sauces, cheese or chocolate.

  9. Agree with Arthur. At least this dip dip is far better than the satay celup in Malacca. RM 28 for all those is dirt cheap and best part is all are full and satisfied. Hmm...I saw a 20/50 cents coin on the table. Drinks is missing.

  20. Pulau Tikus is one of the expensive spot in Penang even kopi 'o' is dearer by 10sen compared to downtown. Probably of the rich tycoons living there. Not sure about the trend now as Penang has developed so much already.

  28. I love Penang food but I won't try the Lok Lok so that I can fill my tummy with Mee Goreng, Pasembor and Char Koay Teow.

    ReplyDelete
  29. RM28 for all the sticks of lok lok at your table? That's a lot. Did you manage to finish eating all of them?

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
