Cucuk Udang Impiana Hotel And Yam Balls, Gunong Rapat

TIME FOR IPOH SNACKS AND TEA TIME...  It has been ages since I last post about Ipoh delights?  I am now quietly sitting down in the comfort of my own nutshell, screened through the photo folder in my handphone a moment ago to see what are in store for today's post...

Looking at the photo below, the tea time snack was taken in Impiana Hotel, Jalan Gopeng.  One fine afternoon my friend took me to meet up with the hotel manager, they were old friends from yesteryears and while they had their conversation, I was happily enjoying the hotel's famous cucuk udang.  Seems that the GM was particular about the taste of the cucuk udang, he wanted to bring back the hotel's signature snacks, he took the trouble to eat in several stalls.... and finally, he got the "right" taste back....
For a plate of the special Cucuk Udang that comes with a cup of hot coffee or tea,
it is RM12 ... 
As for me, I can skip the tea... 
This plate of CU is more than enough for me... 
Crispy at the sides and insides filled with prawns, celery, onions and spring onions.. 
The taste is somehow different from the ones I used to eat in my canteen.  :p
In another place, another time, I went to Gunong Rapat roadside to have some snacks...
This stall which is located just outside the village hall sells Laksa among other things..
I love their Laksa and too bad I didn't take a picture of it... 
In fact I forgotten all about it when the bowl appeared in front of me!
But I remember to take this kacang snack from a stall just next to the Laksa one....
This is something new to me too... 
Wu Tau Yuen aka Yam Balls!
First time I heard of them... and being foodie adventurous, I ordered a plate... RM6
Beneath the Yam Balls laid some greens.. Kangkung... 
I like the sauce... I like the Yam Balls... I like the greens.... 
I must go there again one weekend!!

  8. I think I need to do a day trip to Ipoh again just to eat and tapao the yam balls. Looks so delicious! I like to eat cucur udang too and the best ones were the ones I ate in my secondary school canteen. Now I cannot find back that taste, so sad.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

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
