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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
