A Hot Fiery Session At Sawadee Thai, Ipoh

YEARNING FOR SOME THAI FOOD...

During my "absence".. my friends told me that they went to this Sawadee Thai Restaurant at Medan Ipoh to try some of their special dishes.  When I heard Thai food, first thing that came to my mind was the Tom Yum.  I had my share of that too when I was at London Old Street, but of course, the prices and the taste, please do not compare.  So I silently said to myself that once I am back in IPOH, I must "attack" the Thai food to my full satisfaction!

One fine evening, my friends came to fetch me and off we went to Sawadee Thai which I had not been before.  Looking forward to savoring the hot and sourish Tomyum.... but little did I know that it was so Fiery Hot that I could not even finish my own share of the soup!  How could it be?   Yes, I am not a Hot Stuff but so far, I normally takes at least two bowls of Tomyum without any rejection... But I admit Defeat on this particular soup.... *white flag*..... hmmmmm..
I call this ... Super Fiery Tomyum!
I wonder what they put in to make it so fiery HOT... 
It was still "burning" in my tummy when the dinner was over...
I better give this a skip the next time... 
Even one of my friends were feeling the same like I did... 
*Something to do with our age!*
Another sourish dish... I shouldn't have ordered both sourish dishes...
Wrong choice I made....
But on top of that, the mango kerabu would be great if there were more dishes... 
Since there were only three of us, we ordered these three dishes only... 
Thai Fish Pancakes....
This is the only dish which I could eat without fear of the cilipadi... 
And the total bill came to around RM70 for the three dishes...
So much for my cravings for Thai food... 
Next time I will stick to the steamed fish Thai style.. 
Safer for my tongue and all....
LOL....

  6. I also cannot take very hot and spicy food so I understand the burning sensation in the mouth and stomach, ouch!

  7. That spicy, huh? I heard that in Thailand it is like that. Super power hot. I don't think I can tahan also.

  8. So next time, must remember to request for lesser hotness for the tom yam. If it is too sour, then I better skip the mango kerabu. Go for milder dishes or else our tummy and tongue will suffer.

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 …
