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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
