Taiping Cendol And Restoran Kakak

It was nearly noon when we reached and the first place we wanted to try out was the cendol which has been recommended by a blog friend and we came by here... Bismillah Cendol Taiping... It is along Chung Thye Phin Road, in fact there are three cendol stalls around that vicinity...
But we chose this cos I saw people standing and sitting here...
Where there is a crowd, the food must be ........... (fill in the blanks.. hahahaa)
 Besides the cendol stall, there is also Pasembor and a laksa stall nearby as well... 
 Jameema Cendol...
 We ordered a plate of Pasembor to share....
How's the taste?
Well, all I can say is I like it...
The gravy is not so thick so it is not that "filling"...
 How about the cendol?
 Compared to Penang Road one, this one is less creamier and not so sweet...
Kind of suitable for the more health conscious ones like me.... hahahaa....
I finished up the whole bowl without feeling "worried"....
 Next we "jumped on the wagon"...
and we found this Kakak Restaurant in Jalan Pasar....
Looking at the crowd on a Sunday afternoon means the food must be good here...
Instead of koay teow (flat noodles), I opted for the "loe shu fun"  (rat noodles)
 A very "size-zy" bowl but I managed to finish it all the same! 
We added a few fish balls as extras and....
oh dear, I forgot to take the picture of the sambal!
The sambal belacan (chilie paste) is the "Ummph" and the "Kick"....
The cost is RM3.80 per bowl..
And my stomach was super full by then....
Time to rest.... ZZZzzzzz.....

  10. Kakak is the only well known keow teow soup for outstation people and visitors... There are many other places which are much nicer to makan in the morning.

    Next time, show you the way to Bee Loon Yong Tau Foo keow teow soup. Slightly pricey because of so many "liew" you can order from. Their curry noodle is nice too.

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 …
