Our Brunch In Pak Khong Restaurant, Kepong

Good food does not necessary come from expensive restaurants and beautiful decor on the outside.  Before we left for Ipoh, we were taken to this place here in Kepong, it is just next to the market style of place called Pak Thong.  We reached here around 11.30am and were the first customers for the day. 
We parked our car here and walked to the back... or is it the front??
I think the front is an open concept and we walked to the back which has an air con room....
Despite a few holes on the table cloth and a few mozzies that "greeted" u...
the food here is still worth coming by for.....
Their steamed fish was very fresh and the sauce reminded me of my childhood days....
I remember my mom used to steam like this too... simple and nice...
Sambal Paku Pakis....
er.... what shall I call this?
Innards?
Ok, stewed mixed innards....!
The knuckle but cooked in chinese style....
Not so sinful because it is only the skin and the bones... or should I say just the tendons....
Another dish not to be missed is the Claypot Curry Creamy Prawns that look like Lobsters...
Enormous that they were halved when served....
Well cooked.... the juiciness of the prawns in curry....
(Lai Yeow Curry, they called it)
The six of us could not finish the five dishes.... 
The remainder did not go into waste but were brought back to Ipoh....
And the bill from this Kepong restaurant came to RM212..... hmmmm....
Any comments from the pricing?

  4. Won't be surprised that it would cost that much. These two dishes, fish & prawns would cost a bomb. All in all, food looks great.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
