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.

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

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
