Special Smacks At Ah Meng Restaurant, Taman Iskandar, Johor

THIS TIME ROUND WE MANAGED TO GET HOLD OF AH MENG'S SMACK NOODLES at Taman Iskandar.  The last time we came to Johor, Ah Meng restaurant was closed and we went to San Low instead.  Took us half an hour drive to the place, passing by Danga Bay and the Palace on the way.  The place was quite full but then we did not wait long for our food to be served.  Service was good and in no time, all our 6 plus 1 dishes were laid on the table....
Steamed herbal kampung chicken.... 

Crispy fried squids.... 
Our favourite bitter gourd omelette... 
Prawn paste fried chicken... 
Smacked "Kangkung" sambal belacan... 
And their famous Smack Meehoon.... 
Looks kind of neat for these two dishes, right? 
Our six dishes for six people... 
Oh yes, not forgetting our dessert after the meal....
Johor famous Or Nee... 
Yam paste with gingko nuts and pumpkin... 
Best in the whole world!
We enjoyed our dinner tremendously.... 
With the 6 plus 1 dishes, the bill came to around RM150...
Ah Meng will surely see us again when we come to Johor the next time round!

  1. Prawn paste fried chicken? That would be belacan fried chicken, right? We had that when we were at the Red Garden in Penang, very nice. Never got round to trying to cook my own.

    Ah Meng was the name of the orang utan in Singapore Zoo. Dunno if it is still around - having tea with Ah Meng was a tourist attraction at one time.

  2. I remember reading about smack noodles in your previous post but I cannot remember what the "smack" is all about hah..hah.. But everything looks good lah. My top picks would be the steamed chicken, fried chicken and smack meehoon.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
