Steamed Steamed Food At Tai Kung Coffeeshop, Ipoh

MY FRIEND CAME AND TOOK ME OUT FOR AN EARLY DINNER...  It was only 5pm and not many shops were opened at this time.  I think it was only the third shop that we finally decided that this was the best... not in terms of food but in terms of parking and the "user friendly" pavement that we had to look out for.

See how troublesome and inconvenient it is to take me out?  hahahahaa.. That is why most times I prefer to stay home and eat than going through the hassle of getting the right shop for me to go...  Ok, anyway I am glad to be out again and enjoy eating at a humble shop called Tai Kung... All the food here are steamed in a giant steamer and all we just have to do is to choose them by pointing... er... this.. or that....
This is how my leg is normally dressed up... 
hahahahaa...
And our dinner consisted of the steamed fish....
Steamed "toong choy" minced meat....
And steamed water cress soup.....
Ignore the tops... otherwise appetite sure will vanish...
I remember my sister used to say this.. the messier it is, the tastier the food is... 
hahahahaa...

That was our dinner for two....
We shared a plate of rice and the bill came to RM30.50....
Came home with a satisfied tummy...
Time to watch TV and then go sleep....

  4. That's one of our favourite place. Reason - easy parking, good food, fast service and price reasonable.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
