Cheap And Nice In Bali Assam House, Ipoh

The first time I went to BaliAssam House, I did not manage to get a table, the place was already crowded even though it was before 7pm.. Not wanting to give up, my friends and I went there again last night and to our delight, there was a table for the three of us.... The place was quite crowded again, only one shop lot and we made a count on the table, only 11 actually... if the 12th group comes, they will have to wait for their turn...
So what are their signature dishes?
The first thing I saw is the Assam Cod Fish Head....
Prices are very reasonable...
Small RM19.90
Medium RM29.90
Large RM39.90
We ordered the small portion... around 250gm of cod fish...
Not bad.. each of us can gave 2 to 3 small pieces... LOL...
Curry comes with brinjals, okra and pineapple slices..
So this is Bali style curry!
Not sure what this is called but written on menu is long beans...
To me, they are french beans' babies...
Paku Pakis Thai Styled...
Sweet sauce... I like it...
Minced Steamed Fish Beancurd... 
Love the gravy...
As for the bill, just look at that!
So super cheap... no service or GST charged..
Well, anything cheap and nice in Ipoh, the crowd will be there!

  1. This looks like my kind of food. I like!!!

  2. I like the curry - brinjal, okra, pineapple slices and fish - perfect to go with rice to eat for lunch (but not for dinner as I don't eat rice for dinner). Only RM4 for the veges and RM6 for the tofu!? Super affordable. I will make a note to eat there if I ever visit Ipoh. Does it open for business for lunch?

    1. Oh, not sure about lunch... but can find out for you tonight. :)

    2. Tonight? You're going again?

  3. All looks good. Just assam cod fish head, I can eat 2 plates of rice. Best part is the bill, cheap.

    1. hahahaa.. I also thought so... now no GST yet so better eat before it implements!

  4. OMG, the bill is screaming for me to visit the place! Hahaha!

    1. hahahaa...You can order lots more with Sg currency!

  5. Wah, you sure that's the right bill? So cheap!

    1. That is why I put up the bill.. otherwise no one will believe me.. :)

  6. wah, the asam fish looks so good leh!! really can wallop two bowls of rice with even just the gravy, haha.. and the long beans also looks good leh, kind of balance up the spiciness and sourness of the fish.. but the other two dishes, a bit too oily for me~~ :)

    1. Irene Tan also can wallop two bowls.. so for you, maybe three bowls of rice! hahaha... I think they are not oily... you just have to taste and see...

  7. Cheap AND good food! No wonder so many crowds!

  8. Bali+Assam sound very hoi wai already.. haha.. Wah cod fish ok wor, not very expensive.. Cod is 'suet yue' rite.. Expensive fish.. Biasa la everytime we order curry fish head, everyone can only dig about 1-2 small pieces only.. Most of us can only scoop the gravy with rice nia.. Oohhh I love that steamed minced fish thingy.. Bet the gravy taste like sharkfins soup..

    1. Yeah, I was also surprised by their reasonable prices... little bit also never mind.. cod fish wor.. hahaha... but never tasted cod fish curry till now...

  9. All the dishes I like! And so cheap some more!

    1. If the boss reads this, sure the pricing will be up and up after that.. hahahaa...

  10. Wahhhhhhhh drooling over the food!

    And so affordable too!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
