My First Dinner At Nyonya Treats, Johor

DEPARTED FROM IPOH AT 12.40 NOON and landed in Johor around 2pm... very punctual this time, Malindo brought me safely to the grounds at Senai Airport right on time.  Collected my luggage and out to the open air, looking for my friend's car and in no time, we were off to Tun Aminah for a quick lunch.  I was feeling ravenous by then, maybe due to some turbulence on the plane at one certain area, it caused me some anxiety that added to the hunger.

Fast forward.... I had a proper meal during dinner.  We went to Nyonya Treats in Taman Perling, I requested to go there for the Stuffed Fish which I dearly miss.  But to my disappointment, they were all sold out and we had to settle for something different which was not what I expected....
  Looking through the menu, every dish looks so appealing and appetizing... 
I wrongly ordered this Claypot Assam Fish... it was too spicy for my liking... 
And the color of the curry is not that appealing though they have lots of ingredients inside... 
This Or Hiang is not bad... oh, did I spell this out right?
Cincaluk Omelette 
Tapioca leaves.... 
Stinky beans in sambal which is a bit too bitter for my liking too... 
The five dishes for the four of us... 
The only thing that feels right for the night... 
Durian Cendol... 
Don't know why this time round the food was just so-so... 
Maybe the cook was not around?  hmmmm... 
Anyway, I had a nice time catching up with my friends.. 
Food might not be up to expectation nevertheless...
as the saying goes, it is the company that counts!
Fee Great to see them again!!

  3. Wow, from Penang, now to Johor. Lots to eat, nice! Too bad the sambal is bitter else the petai would be very tasty. I also cannot eat too spicy food else I would love to eat the assam fish. The cincaluk omelette should be very tasty if it is not too salty and the vege fan su leaves is tasty too.

    1. The omelette is nice, i think sambal belacan might be overfried thus the bitter taste...

  4. I love nyonya! Did not like one expensive place we went to in Penang, all of us, a big group, all cousins, went and we criticised everything from top to bottom. Went to my old-time favourite in Melaka, didn't quite like it also - not the same anymore. But I did come across one nice one in KL. Sure would love to try any in Johor should I get the chance. How long will you be there? I fly over, jalan jalan cari makan?

  6. Maybe because of GST, that's why the food quality deteriorate. (Still blaming it after so many years now because it is convenient to do so)

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 …
