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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
