Tuck Kee In Theatre Street, Ipoh

Mention Tuck Kee and many will know that it is famous for its fried noodles and some side dishes... The original shop is along the same row as Loe Wong, selling chicken and koay teow soup... I do not like to go to that street nowadays already, especially during the weekends. The whole road will be swarmed with cars and most of them just double parked and at times, one need to be very patient along the road. I am not, unfortunately so I rather not go there...too crowded and commercialized already.

But all is not lost, I can still taste their noodles now at another shop nearby... at least this one is not so crowded... maybe due to the reason that not many know about it (yet)... It bears the same name Tuck Kee in English, not so sure whether it belongs to the same owner or not as mentioned earlier. Same owner or not, I don't really mind as long as the food tastes GOOD!

"Menu" pinned on the wall...
It was around 7pm when we came by... 
There were still some empty tables... thank goodness....
There were 4 of us and we ordered the below....
 
Fat Noodles... (Tai Lok Mi)
Mixed noodles....
Short noodles... (Loe Shu Fun)
Flat noodles with egg gravey (Wat Tan Hor)
Very tasty!!
Love this very much... 
We ordered 5 "Water Dumplings" (Sui Kau)
Steamed octopus...
Just nicely cooked.. not tough...
I conveniently forgot about my cholesterol here...
It blends well with this chillie sauce...
For the above dishes plus drinks, the total cost is RM36
The noodles are tasty.. because of the "lard"
I think I would like to go again...
(but not before I do my cholesterol test!)
LOL...

  1. Arghhh.... i can go crazy over octopus, i know its unhealthy but i just couldn't resist the temptation.... T.T The Tai Lok Mee looks equally good either, we hardly get some decent Tai Lok Mee here in Penang

  5. I think eat octopus once in a while should be ok. But some people do not believe in this cholesterol thing - I am referring to the book the cholesterol myth.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
