Dinner With Peng Yew At Lawan Kuda, Gopeng

LAWAN KUDA ALL THE WAY!! Ever since last Friday till today (Thursday), I had my meals here in Lawan Kuda for the third time... Oh my goodness, is this pure coincidence or obsession?

This evening the four of us came here for our dinner.... It was almost 7pm when we reached Peng Yew Restaurant in Lawan Kuda.  From what we heard, this restaurant is one of the best in this area and we were eager to try out for ourselves....
It was still early when we arrived... 
and we were glad that many tables were still unoccupied...
Clean and bright but we opted to sit at the paveway for more cooling air....
Well, though the place looks empty but by the time we ordered our food, 
we waited for almost half an hour before they arrived...
Maybe the signature dish needs time to get cooked....... 
This dish is not to be missed...
Ikan Haruan aka snakehead fish in wine soup... 
And part of the fish was served with celery and dried chilies... 
Very tasty...
Steamed eggs....
And eggplants with minced meat....
 And how was the food?
The picture tells the answer... 
As for the bill, it came to RM69.90 with rice and drinks...
Ok, I think I will "skip" Lawan Kuda for some time...
No more "fighting with the horse" unless with some special request!
hahahahaa....

  12. I have fond memories of this Lawan Kuda town as I have eaten in various restaurants there several times with my former boss. That guy who was the ex MP of Teluk Intan who died of cancer last year. He was good in finding good restaurants but he didn't bring me to this Peng Yew. I must look for Claire... Ha ha

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...
