A Nameless Place In Taman Perkaka, Penang

GOING TO GET SOME "FIRING" FROM WHOEVER ASKING FOR THE NAME OF THIS SHOP...  Yes, I am the one who will get fired.... for I forgot to look at the name of the shop.... Too hungry perhaps.. Or too hasty to go off after dinner... Whatever it is, Hopefully someone can tell me the name....

Having said that, my post begins with this....

Having nothing much to do in Ipoh, I drove up north for a short vacation in Penang.... the weather was cloudy but fine, no rain and upon reaching, I went for lunch at Little Genting in Green Lane....
Hokkien mee in Penang aka Prawn noodles in Ipoh...
It was too spicy for me, don't judge the mini size chili on the spoon... 
It burns!
One coconut was definitely not enough.... 
Fast forward, it was evening... time to go for dinner ....
We went to a shop in Taman Perkaka....
All I can say is that it is a corner shop just behind Subaidah Restaurant.... 
Never thought of looking at the name of the shop...
But the food was not bad....
And we had these four dishes.... scrumptious meal which cost around RM65
plus rice and drinks.... 
 Hot Leafy spinach soup....
Sweet and sour pork....
These look and tasted special...
They are beancurd balls cooked with some curry leaves and salted eggs....
And Fish cooked in Nyonya style 
Here is a glimpse of the shop... 
Just too bad I couldn't remember to take the name of the shop...
Hope someone can enlighten me...
It is just opposite the Wong Chao Restaurant in Taman Perkaka....
             
                
Our dinner did not end right there....
We took a drive to another place....
For some bittersweet experience!

  4. I don't know the place but the beancurd balls cooked with some curry leaves and salted egg sure look tasty. I know where Wong Chao Restaurant in Taman Perkaka so the next time I go to Penang maybe I will look for this restaurant.

  6. "The corner shop just behind Subaidah" is an appropriate Penangite restaurant name hahaha. Usually it is the actual name of the place that people won't know :P

    But ar... I don't think I've been to this one before. Maybe that's why I don't know. "Zhu char" in that area (Sg Dua), usually I will go to Kim Hin, it is located beside a motorbike shack between Tesco Extra and that row of shops with Pizza Hut and McD. But we don't call it Kim Hin, we will say "Let's go to Paul's", because Paul is the guy who sell drinks there.

    Also there's a pretty nice place on the same row as Sg Nibong Public Bank. Don't know the name also, we call it "fu kua chao dan" (bitter gourd fried egg) because they do that dish very well there.

    And ah, the dim sum shop at Elit, they do dishes at night too, pretty decent too with air-cond.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
