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!


  1. I loves the otah, the supermarket here got sell otah, something like the one you eat, i ever buy, buy inside the fridge, when want to eat it, steam it...

  2. The fried squids and nam yue chicken look so so good, I can munch munch munch non stop.. Never heard of or nee, but I think I've seen it in STP's post.. Sweet sticky dessert, yummzzz..

    1. Next time I must see you eat... very hoi wai!

  3. Hahaha

    Mommy wants a big portion ya. ;)

  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.

    1. Wahhh.. so nice.. can buy in pasar malam.. I cannot see any or nee in Ipoh...

  5. All looks so good. The smacked noodles looks like bihun. I personally love the or nee & noodles in egg gravy.

    1. Yes, they are bihun... they smacked them flat... hahaaa

  6. Or nee is a JB delicacy, I think you can find it in many restaurants lah, as long as you are not that specific. :P

    1. Fook Chau dessert, if not mistaken... so each time I go, I try to taste them...

  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.

    1. Oh.. didnt taste any lard... but i know it is not healthy... eat once a blue moon ok right? :) Smack noodles is mihoon...

  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?

    1. Both places.. hahahaa.. if possible!

    2. TM, you can get Or Nee (individual serving) in Putien Restaurant in One Utama.

  9. I will eat everything except the or nee. Somehow, don't quite like it hee..hee...

  10. Claire, now you are covering the southern area food too. I tasted or nee but I find it hard to accept the texture.

  11. Every thing is yummy to me but I have not tasted Or Nee.

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
