Steamed Fish Head At Tai You, Ipoh

STRAIGHT TO LUNCH after having done all the household chores in the morning.  After a few whatsapp messages, I drove straight to Pasir Puteh to pick up two good friends of mine.  During the twenty minutes drive to their place, my mind was filled with where and what-to-eat.  By the time I reached their place, I know where to take them.  It has been a long time since I last ate at this shop along Jalan Bendahara.

The shop is called Dai You and it used to be popular for steamed fish head among other dishes.  But the last time I came, it was a lady cook.  I guess the stall has changed hands, this time it was a man with moustache.... anyway... we sat down and ordered just two dishes cos one of my friends wanted to take chicken koay teow instead... no, it is not because of the moustache cook, she just wanted noodles instead of rice..... hehehe...  
My friend said it was not bad... I believe her judging by the colour of the soup... 
Fruits as appetizer.... 
A piece of omelette fried with bitter gourd which is everyone's favourite... 
And the steamed fish came soon after.... 
The sauce is a bit too sweet for me... 
Definitely it was not as what I used to eat last time... 
Flesh was abundant... and the fish was fresh... no smell...
I would prefer more ginger on and around the fish, 
that would taste much better than just a few stripes.. 
Price was quite steep too... two dishes came to RM41 plus 2 bowls of rice...

  2. Omelette fried with bitter gourd is my favourite too. I can spot the thick flesh on the fish, looks tasty!

  5. The fish must have been very expensive then... Cannot imagine rice and bitter gourd egg to cost much...

  6. So funny your mention of the moustache man :D The steamed fish looks good but so little ginger. I also prefer a bit more and also some corriander leaves.

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
