Tasty Cowan Street Ayam Tauge & Koitiao, Ipoh

REACHED IPOH AROUND 3PM and after unpacking, we were too tired to do any homecooked food in the house.  We just wanted something "light" for dinner and to beat the crowd, we went out early to this shop famous for its smooth, silky koay teow!  It has a very simple name, I just googled for "chicken koayteow in Cowan Street" and this name came out as Cowan Street Ayam Tauge & Koitiau.

In my opinion, the food here can beat the other famous shops in town.... Only setback is that this shop does not open everyday, heard that it closes on Monday and Tuesdays.  But one never know, it can close for one week or so without prior notice  so when we saw it opened, we were so happy.... Quickly we parked our car and got seated right on the first table in the shop where I could see them in action....

There were at least five foreign workers helping the owner.... 
From my table near to the entrance, the people just kept trickling in every now and then...
All came for the silky smooth koayteow and their tasty soup.....
And their crunchy beansprouts....
Our two persons' portion of steamed chicken... 
But we ordered three bowls of noodles...
One bowl each is definitely not enough to satisfy!
And the bill came to around RM27 plus drinks....

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

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
