Authentic Lunch At Yoong Kee, Bukit Mertajam

WE LEFT FOR IPOH AFTER A LIGHT BREAKFAST IN PENANG ISLAND... a very light breakfast because we had intention to take lunch in Bukit Mertajam. It has been many years since I last visited BM and I could not remember much about the place I had last eaten. I thought I had never been there till I reached the place and I was thinking to myself... "Oh yeah, this place looks rather familiar.... " Well, almost ten years, what do one expect from a lady with a short memory.... hahhaaha...

I am hopeless with directions and I do appreciate being driven instead of driving....
Even with road signs, I do not have confidence.... and I do not have GPS on my phone....
Somehow we made it to the town and we found what we were looking for....
This is the stall cum shop... 
And we made a mistake of ordering this fish... hahahhaa...
White pomfret steamed teochew style.....
However, the fish was very fresh... worth taking... once awhile... 
Then their signature beancurd with "kau chai"
And I made another mistake by ordering this.... same sauce and flavour!
What was I thinking about then.... *scratching head*
Maybe I heard leeks being mentioned and immediately I nodded my head... YES!
After the bill of RM60 was charged, we were cooled down with a free dessert....
I guess the main cost is from the Fish itself... 

After our lunch, we made our way back to Ipoh....
Clear blue skies all the way back to the home where I belong.....

  1. Lol. What dishes you wanted to order initially??

    But the dishes looked good and reasonably priced. Fishes are so expensive now. Sigh.

  2. Cheap! Here, that white pomfret alone would have cost RM60, I'm sure - whole fish!

  3. so the dishes were all ordered by mistakes?? well, once in a while okay lah because you get to try new dishes you may not have ordered before.. especially if that's an eatery you go once in a bluemoon, you will probably order the same dishes.. :p

  4. RM60 for all the dishes is reasonable considering you have the white pomfret which itself would cost a bomb. Ermmm, was wondering why you say you make a mistake ordering the fish & leek dishes. Indeed clear blue sky & less traffic.

    1. Fish like this is doubly expensive at this time... Leeks and the taufu have almost the same sauce taste.. :)

  5. I think the price is quite reasonable for the dishes you ordered. White promfret is expensive.

  7. I realize most of your favorite makan places are those "tai chao" places serving dishes with rice...

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
