Homecooked Dishes At Kampong Simee "House cum Shop"

We left Rawang around 5.30pm and by the time we reached Ipoh, it was almost 8pm... and before going home, we took our dinner in Kampung Simee. This time we tried out the food in a corner house cum food stall, just opposite the Chung Tak Primary School in Kampung Simee. I have been there several times but have not tried the following dishes before. Love the home-cooked dishes that come with a reasonable price. Well, back to Ipoh, the prices cannot be too sky-high.. hahahaa...
 Their special for the day is "homecooked" Steamed Pork Ribs...
For greens, I ordered this "dragon vege..... "
And to furnish all the whole package, a simple "Mixed Omelette"
For three dishes and three plates of rice plus drinks, 
the bill came to around RM34.00 ($11usd?)
I think it is pretty reasonable for the dishes such as these...
After the meal, it was time to go home and rest...
A wonderful getaway and looking forward to another one next month! :)

  15. Very affordable dishes and looks quite tasty too.

    The vege is known as "青龍菜" (green dragon vege - ching loong choy) and it is actually chives "韭菜" grown using a special technique by farmer Lau Kuan in Cameron Highlands.

  16. This green dragon vegetable is actually chives (kao choy) grown in a special way.

    Taken from the star dated 16 may 2005:

    "He lets his chives grow for six weeks before chopping off the top half of the leaves to be used as mulch and fertiliser.

    He then covers the remaining chives with a thick nylon netting for 10 days in a process known as blanching before harvesting them.

    Limiting sunlight made the chives more tender and delicious as they contained less fibre, Lau said."

    The title of the above news article is "Farmer rejects pesticide use in growing chives".

  17. mecoy: omelette is nice everywhere..


    mun: yeah, it looks like kau choy and also taste almost the same.. only that it is broader and looks kind of "higher class." Maybe because of the name? :)

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
