Hollywood Food, Penang Durians And Ipoh Pomeloes Delights

AS EVENING APPROACHED, I had a nice dinner with a group of friends at Hollywood restaurant, Batu Feringgi.  It was my second time eating at this restaurant, mainly Hainanese styled, I was told.  I have not really tried much before and naturally I was looking forward to a night of new dishes.

As usual we were there quite early and before the other guests arrived, I quickly took some pictures of the empty hall...

The place where dinner was held... the side is facing the sea.... 
That is the sea I meant... but not meant for swimming though... 
And our dishes for the night were as follows... 
Cold dish... Jelly with Chicken and not sure what else... 
I am certainly not a fan of cold dish... :)
BBQ Meat.... They were not burnt though they looked somehow on the dark side.... 
Clams with some sweet sauce.. and after eating some, I called this..
Clams in Rojak sauce... 
Of the few dishes above, this looks more familiar to me....
Honey lemon chicken... Penang style... 
There is one more dish... fried meehoon with prawns... 
That came last and I did not manage to take it cos I was already "occupied'.... 
And above all, the main highlight was the Durian Desserts!
There were only seven of us and the hostess bought SEVEN packets....
Oh my goodness.... such delight!!
I ended trying one from each packet though... 
Oh, I did sponsor something too...
Notice the pink fruit?  Pomeloes from Ipoh mali....
After eating the durians, the pomeloes tasted kind of bitter.... 
I guess they should not combine... 
Another bittersweet kind of desserts!

  1. I like the BBQ meat like that, even if it is burnt a little. Nicer, very much more fragrant. Clams, prawns, chicken - all look good, dunno that jelly dish - never tried...and I would just stick to the pomelo - no, thank you to the durians. So so so so hot here these days, dunno there - best not to eat heaty fruits, so many people falling ill, dropping like flies.

  2. I like the clam and bbq meat. The cold dish looked unique as served in jelly-like.

    Durian?? Not for me. No longer that crazy about the fruits for many years now. hahaha!

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

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

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...
