Family Treat To Assam House, Greentown, Ipoh

It has been quite some time since we last had a meal in Assam House, Greentown Business Center. I remember the food portions there were pretty big and of course, the pricing is also "big".... hahahaa... Anyway, I called the restaurant to book a table for 11 people and we reached there at around 7pm. If not for the booking, I think we would not be able to get a nice big table....
While waiting for the food....
 .... the cameras or should I say, the handphones?
They started to click here and there....
 Didn't have time to chat much...
The food came out fast cos I ordered them beforehand...
Assam curry fish...
Big portion but my camera didn't give much credit..
This one tastes much better.... petai (stingy beans) with squids....
Kerabu mango..... with.....
Sambal dried prawns and cucmbers....
This is not rojak.... thought it looks like one....
It is called Chicken Rojak.... 
Something different... good choice...
Beancurd with mixed vegetables...
Sprouts with garlic....
Buttered crayfish....
Seven dishes... and the total bill came to RM270 for the 11 of us....
Well, I wouldn't say it is cheap... but then...
After the petrol increase, what is cheap... 
Please tell me.. :)

  1. About Rm25 for a person is considered ok. So many dishes though the sambal dried prawns alone can make people eat many bowls of rice.

  5. But you had crayfish...and squids and curry fish. For 11, I think that pricing is pretty ok. Chicken rojak sounds interesting. Is this in Ipoh? Something like that place you took me to for lunch - Sin Hup Kee Restaurant along Jalan Leong Sin Nam...or maybe, a bit nicer.

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

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

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 str
