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.
