Authentic Shop Hoong Toh In Old Town

My mom told me that she has not been to Hoong Toh restaurant for more than 30 years or more now! Oh dear, I must take her here one day, I told myself... Hoong Toh is not a high class restaurant but it was one many years ago. Weddings were held in this shop and the last time I attended the wedding, yes, it was more than 30 years ago. I guess all the old chefs have retired by now and needless to say, the authenticity of the food has also gone with them. With one consolation in mind, perhaps the cooks have passed on their "secret recipe" to the ones who have taken over....

One fine evening I took my mom and "company" here for dinner.... Now she doesn't have to say she has not come by for more than 30 years already!   hahahaaa....
The place has been "refurbished" ... those days, it was not as "bright" as it is today...
What do these painting depict?

When it comes to ordering, we allow the "lady boss" to suggest...
She told us this is their signature dish... "Hoong Toh Meen"
It goes well with the vinegar ... according to individual...
This is a "Must"... 
Yee Wat Hor Fun
(Fish paste with flat noodles)
Good try for the first timers...
Singapore mihun...
I think my handphone camera is not doing some credit here... (lighting problem)
For side orders, this is nice... crispy fried wanton...
And their signature "popiah/lobak"
I cannot remember the name...
It is crispy on the outside and a combination of minced meat and vegetables on the inside...
And now the bill... 
I was a bit taken aback to be splashed with ;RM55 +-
What do you say?

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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

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...
