We Went For Vietnamese

My "cook" is on strike this evening... kitchen is closed for today... leaving no choice, we ventured out to town for food. My girl suggested going for Vietnamese food, it was a first time for her coming by here.
The shop is called VNAM Kitchen Restaurant along Seenivasagam Street, Ipoh
 Quite a nice and comfortable place to dine...
Most of the staff are Vietnamese.... and they are friendly as well...
After our orders were taken, these were laid on our table in no time... 
I should have asked for lemon instead of lime...
Lemon has a stronger fragrance and the soup would be tastier... (for me!)
My order.... Vietnamese noodles with meatballs..
Definitely different from our local noodles....
I soaked in my share of basil leaves... love the smell of them...
My girl ordered Tomato Vietnamese Soup Noodles...
Something like laksa with added tomatoes to enhance the sweetness...
It comes with a plate of three types of meat.... BBQ beef, pork and chicken.... 
(Blurry picture due to my shaky hands!)
Friendly staff doing the mixing for my mom...
Our expressions before food...
After food, expression-less... 
LOL...

  2. Is the Tomato Vietnamese Soup Noodles expensive? Since it comes with three types of BBQ meat. I notice that you did not put the raw beansprout into your noodle soup. Good to eat a different cuisine now and then.

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...
