Seafood At Tong Sheng Restaurant, Malacca

IT WAS ALMOST 6PM WHEN WE FINALLY REACHED HATTEN HOTEL after our fruitful trip to the durian plantations.  What a long and productive day! The day is not over yet, dinner was still pending, in another two hours, our host/hostess would be coming to pick us up for a scrumptious meal!  Quickly we freshened up and had a short rest in the hotel room.  Fingers were busy on touching the handphones to keep up with the daily emails and notifications.

Soon the two hours passed and we got ready and waited at the hotel lobby for our friends to fetch us for dinner.  We did not know what we had in store for we are not so familiar with Malacca food. Our friends were very punctual and we were whisked off to a restaurant called FATSO.  Upon reaching, the restaurant was closed... but no worries, we proceeded to another restaurant called Tong Sheng. Seems that these two restaurants are the famous ones in Malacca for their seafood...

This is how Tong Sheng looks like on a weekend... 
*taken from my son's phone during one weekend*
But on the day we went, the crowd was very much less... 
We got our table and seats within 15 minutes or so... 

Famous for their cheesy meehoon... 
I was expecting something milky but to my surprise, 

it was something like Wat Tan hor gravy but with a better fragrance... 
A-Must-Have dish in this restaurant... 
Otak Otak fried with eggs... 
Four types of bean... 
And one more green dish which I have overlooked, I guess...
Lastly and not least, the Crabs in cheesy sauce too... 
I do not normally take cheese but this sauce is Extremely Special 
The cheese was somehow "non existing"..
The gravy tasted like sweet, sourish with minimum spicyness... 
A plate of toasted bread to dip into the sauce... 
Super "omphh" I would say..... 
Ended up taking three big claws before calling it a stop... 
Again we were being blessed with such a scrumptious dinner!
Endless Thanks to both of you!!

  3. How much is that plate of prawn noodles? I guess it is one big prawn cut up but even so it is not going to be cheap if we have that here. Some places RM20, some RM30...the bigger, the more expensive. But I hear there are farmed ones now, sopposed to be cheaper...and the problem is we can never tell - they cheat us, we also don't know. :(

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
