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.. :)

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

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
