Tai You Coffeeshop Along Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh

THE LAST TIME I WENT TO THIS TAI YOU COFFEESHOP WAS IN 2009.... no joke!  When I was still working, I remember my colleagues and I went there quite frequently those days but somehow along the years go by, this shop has been "deleted" from our mind.  Oh yeah!  Now I remember, the stall which served these dishes in 2009 had changed hands with another, it was previously done by a husband and wife team... then they left and handed over by another man and we did not like to go there after the couple left.....

This was in 2009 and the shop is still more or less the same today.....
Tai You along Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh
Famous for their steamed fish head then....
Green leaves....
And omelette...
Those were what we usually ordered then.....
When I came back from Europe recently, I was taken to this shop again....
Six years later..... 
I think the stall has changed hands again... not sure who is who now...
Now it is cooked by an elderly man and helped by a young boy.....
We ordered Bitter Gourd soup.... 
and I only remember to take picture after drinking half way through..
It was also an enormous fish head....
Price has since increased... of course....
For just two dishes it cost around RM46 with rice for the three of us...
Fish is not cheap nowadays....
Or perhaps we have to wait another 6 years to go there again...
hahhahaha....

  1. No need to wait another 6 years to go back. Anytime also can. But we have many other places to go to now!

  4. Hahaha, wait another 6 years to go back there. If you do that, I think it would have changed hands again. I prefer to eat steamed fish instead of steamed fish head.

  8. It's like that lah, when the original people left, we tend to not go back because we are so used to them. But it looks like the food is not bad.

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

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

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
