Earthen Restaurant In Monterey Park

I WAS SCROLLING MY PHOTO ALBUMS IN MY HANDPHONE... There are so many of them not posted up yet in my blog here. I better do them before the pictures "disappear" from my hp, never know when, right? My HP is a four years old now, anything can happen and my laptop here is now full of PICTURES! Another problem, I got to get a hard disk to download them all...

Coming back to my current post, these pictures were taken during dinner on our first night in Los Angeles.  My sister's friends joined us for dinner and they suggested coming to this place Earthen Restaurant in Monterey Park for a meet-up. 
We drove nearly for an hour from our hotel to this Earthen Restaurant 
which is a mixture of Hongkong cum Korean food... 
Highly recommended was the word!
Amused by the chopsticks wrapper.... 
Hope it's effective to those new learners... 
And now our dishes... ordered by the LA locals... :)
Roast chicken with lots of garlic as toppings and the skin was kind of "sweetened"
Very special....
Love this pancake with leeks....
A very tasty combination... crispy on top and soft inside...
This is something similiar to our local "Loe Sang" in Malaysia...  
And after the Mix...
This is familiar... Kau Chee... 
Some greens with beef as topping... 
This reminds me of Korean too... 
Pancake with big onions and some greens...
I like this... I think I took two pieces straight on...
Lastly and not least... a plate of Hongkong style fried rice...
By then my tummy was going to "close shop"....
The bill for these dishes above came to around $80++ 
Certainly we cannot get this price over here if we don't convert... 
hahahaaa.....
Till we meet again... in LA...

  2. The pancake with lots of leek in it is a dish from Taiwan and maybe China too.

  4. Wow! I love this pancake with leeks. My sister who has a Swedish hubby always make this pancakes with different fillings including spinach.
    I know the Americans are very excited with the chopsticks and fortune cookies! Funny thing is that we don;t even have fortune cookies in Malaysia, Taiwan, HKG or China!!! I heard these cookies with messages are imported from HKG for US market only. Funny yeah!??

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
