From Ah Meng To San Lou, Taman Iskandar, Johor

INITIAL PLAN WAS TO GO TO AH MENG restaurant at Taman Iskandar, Johor... but to our disappointment, it was closed!  Since we were around that vicinity and wanted to eat our "Smack Noodles" desperately, we opted for the second choice.  The shop is called San Lou in Taman Pelangi, it serves almost the same food as in Ah Meng, we were told.  No problem with me, as long as I get to eat my "Dessert!"

San Lou was crowded by the time we reached there... almost 8pm plus....
 Waiting patiently.. by then our tummies were "growling".....
We had crispy fried squids....
Crispy Fried Chicken with Lam Yue...
Didn't know why we ordered two fried stuff same time!
Johor's Otak Otak... very nice!
Loh Hon Chye....
Noodles in egg gravy....
And this is what we called Smack Noodles....
They are like being smacked flat!
And of course, the highlight of the dinner is... OR NEE!
The one I have been yearning for....
Sweet Dessert made of yam, pumpkin and gingko!
My favourite!
Too bad Ipoh does not have this...
*Or perhaps it is a better thing that Ipoh does not have!*
Okay, easy does it...
Mama wants a Bigger portion please....
Thank You!

  4. We have the yam - or nee but not served with pumpkin and whatever else like that. Love it! Can even buy at the pasar malam here, I think. My girl would love the deep fried quids. Otak-otak looks good.

  7. Or Nee is available in KL too. Does your Or Nee taste of lard? The ones I have eaten taste of lard so I don't quite like it. The "Smack Noodles" look like glass noodles.

  8. I didn;t know Or Nee is available in KL. I guess I would love that combination of yam, pumpkin and gingko. I wonder whether you live in JB or Ipoh now?

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... 

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
