Buntong Fried Noodles And Other Ipoh Treasures For Dinner

FOR DINNER I TOOK MY FRIENDS TO BUNTONG FRIED NOODLES along Osborne Street... we reached there around 7pm and the place was almost crowded as usual... I heard that the quality has gone down but then it did not deter the crowd... so I guess what I heard was proven wrong... Once famous always famous, this is Ipoh...

We ordered a few dishes and they turned out pretty alright... none to perfection but then I am not that picky when it comes to chinese food... call me bias!

 The mihoon is still very tasty and "heong".... RM12
 not easy to fry the fine noodles while keeping them intact... 
Koay Teow in gravy is their signature dish... RM12
One of my friends commented that the lard taste was not there anymore...
Maybe they don't use lard anymore...
Well, no lard means not so unhealthy in a way :)

For side dishes, we ordered 10 fish balls....
Ate up 6 then only I remember to take a picture!
It cost RM1.20 for each and though it is pricey, the quality is there...

Steamed cuttlefish...

Each bite we took, the "cholesterol-ness" pitted out...
That was how my friend expressed...
hahahaha...
That really discouraged us from finishing them all...

Some kind of small chicken...
That is most well-explained...
Too sweet for our liking..
We preferred it to be gingerly seasoned than honeyed...
For the above two dishes, it cost RM39
That was our dinner for four.....
One of us in the midst of food enjoyment..
And two of us from the Empat Sekawan.... 
Apart from the food, it is the good company that really counts...

  1. Have been there a few times, we still like the noodles. The fish balls very good. Have not tried the cuttlefish nor the deep fried chicken yet. Good company is the most important.

  2. I love all the dishes you ordered here, Claire. Everything is what I love to eat. I am a Hakka and being Hakka, I love my bihun. That fried mihun is my cup of tea. I just had one last Sunday and I love the way they fry it without been too soft or broken into pieces.

    That steamed cuttlefish is worth to die for. Think of cholesterol after the meal. Hehe. Yummy spring chicken.

  3. Yes, my bihun all pecah pecah one especially using the finer Thai ones - the China ones are harder, will not break so easily. Never mind, can just use spoon to eat, no need for chopsticks. Hehehehehe!!!!

  8. That koay teow gravy, if they don't use lard anymore it means they screw up lah! No justifying it by talking about healthiness. Healthy food can be had at home! :D

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
