Simple Lunch At Kampong Koh, Sitiawan

The next morning we set out from Ipoh around 11am for a day trip to Sitiawan. It has been more than a year or two since we last ventured out to this coastal town in Perak. It took me more than one hour drive to reach Kampong Koh and we chose Ah Pek Yeh Loi Heong restaurant for our lunch.
Angry Bird goes well with fresh coconut while waiting for the food to arrive...
While waiting for our food, we shared a Kompiang.. famous biscuit in Sitiawan...
And some sweet potatoes dumplings as appetizers...
We ordered Lala with soup and it came out like this.....
Cucumber boil with Lala... good combination...
The cucumber is soft and the clams are fresh....
Gonna try this one day at home!
Ordered only Flower Crabs cos only two of us can eat these.... 
Crispy fried fish... 
Cannot go without the mee sua with chicken in red wine... 



Four dishes for the four of us....
Bill came to RM75...

  2. HHhmmmm, now I want to eat the mee suah. Did you two finish eating the flower crab? Looks quite difficult to eat with all the shells. Not too expensive. Don't think a lunch with crab can be termed as simple, hehehe.

      Many from here in colleges and universities around there also went and tried or their friends bought back for them - of course, in the case of the latter, cannot say lah...not eaten on the spot when hot, so not nice already.

      Delete
    8. Well, as I said, it depends on individual buds and also how fresh it is... or where the place that sells.. not all are the same so cannot finalize how tasty it is... some may like it and some may not... so we must try them before we come to any conclusion...

    9. Hmm...I've been trotting and traveling around Malaysia these days. If there is one thing that I learned about travel is that one should never judge food by pictures. Should try yourself den u will know it is nice or not. Must keep an open mind...else...well...like they say...the world is like a book. Those who doesn't travel...read just one page. The same applies to food.

    10. Good to hear that you have been traveling lately, Cleffairy... Talking about food, I really have to say this again and again.. it depends on individual taste buds...

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
