Grilled Seafood And Nasi Kerabu At Taman Bukit Indah, Johor

ONE FINE EVENING NEARING DINNER TIME, WHEN I WAS ASKED WHETHER I WANTED TO GO FOR "GREEN RICE", the only answer from me was YES, YES!!  Any new place to try new food, I am All for it.  "Just lead the way... " I told them and we followed their car from behind.  The place is in Taman Bukit Indah and I was surprised to see that the it is actually a corner terrace house facing the main road.  It was almost 7.30pm when we reached and there were only one or two tables vacant.

I was told that it is normal to wait for an hour for the food to arrive... so if one is too hungry, one can buy the fried fish crackers hanging by the stall.... just eat that as appetizer first before the food is served.  Yes, the fried fish crackers were tasty, no itchiness on the tongue and they are rounded instead of longish in shape.

Here is the place.... open air and spacious at the corner house.....
Can pick and choose whatever seafood we like.... 
We ordered Grilled Stingray.... 
Grilled Big Prawns.... 
Squid or Octopus... I am not sure but they were really fresh and springy!
A very appetizing dish!
And Okra.... 
Well, all the dishes looked spicy and hot alright!
But I couldn't resist... so I kept cooling myself with glass after glass of herbal drink... 
Yes, this is the green rice but it is now no more green in colour.... 
It is something like Nasi Kerabu... only available during weekends, I heard...
Normal days are white rice.... 
The bill came to around RM120 plus... 
First time coming by here and tasting all the new Food
and won't mind coming again and again next time.... 
Nice!!

  1. Green rice? Kerabu is blue - the bunga telang flower is blue. Ah yes!!! I think the Johore one is green, if I remember correctly - the one I had here, probably using pandan.

  4. I first had my taste of grilled stingray in Penang many moons ago.

    Yes, please to the grilled food. Is MYR 120 reasonable for the bill?

  6. real nasi kerabu (khao jam) is tat color, from the many herbs used, with their distinctive taste and smell... then people resorted to use blue bunga telang cos easily available...

  7. That green nasi kerabu is khao jam - the Thai version. I heard about it at Capital Nasi Dagand Kelantan. They have it only on special occasions. I have yet to try.

    1. Yes, but half an hour is a normal waiting time.. stingray by itself is bland, so it must be cooked with some other sauce..

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 …
