A Place Like Big Tree Ipoh But In Johor

MY GIRL AND I WERE ON OUR WAY TO TAMAN PERLING when I received a call to invite us for breakfast *or should I say lunch* cos it was almost noon by then.  The suggested place for our meal was at Tun Aminah and we had not been there before.  I readily agreed and since I did not know the way, I had to follow their car from behind... After some turnings here and there, we reached this special place which reminded me of Ipoh Big Tree!  *Blame it on the rain, I forgot to take pictures of the name and place*  :(
All I can say is that the shop is right at the end of the road, dead end and it has a big corner space... 
 
We had all these as per above!
The black vinegar was fabulous, I drank quite a fair bit but skipped the meat....
Freshly fried and crispy!
A bit of everything here.....
And some Reds for kick!
Real Spicy!
A big bowl of Koay Teow to fill up the space... 
Surprisingly the koayteow is just as smooth as those sold in Ipoh.... 
Who would miss Ipoh now when one could have these down south? 
Total cost with drinks for four persons came to RM49 for the above...

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...
