Malaysian Flavours With Uncle Pou Wok, Johor

WE RESTED FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS after our return from our one day trip in Singapore... *let the driver rest first* ... then only we went out for a simple dinner at Uncle Pou Wok.  Using Waze, we managed to find the place, actually it was our second time there, the first time was a two years back.  Upon reaching, the place was pretty crowded and we had to sit on the parking bay outside the shop.  Actually I rather sit inside the shop, away from the pollution... *kiasu mode*.... Ok, let's not be so particular....
Pou Wok is famous for their Hokkien Noodles aka Tai Lok Mee...
A very Lardy Dish!
Salted Egg Bitter Gourd.... 
Braised Yong Tow Foo... 
And a Small Size Yue Tau Lou aka "Fish Head Soup" with lots of goodies inside... 
Food for four.... 
See... we were "parked" on the road... haizzz.... 
This is Malaysian Flavours!

    1. It is not really steamboat... just a hot pot soup... nothing added individually..

  3. Quite normal right for some restaurants to put their tables outside on the pavement to accommodate more customers. I would be sweating buckets sitting outside eating steamboat.

  6. I prefer air con place. If sitting outside without air con or fan, I will have to take a big handkerchief to wipe my sweat. Or else the sweat will add flavour to the food! Ha ha.

  7. I would not mind eating outside but then again, pollution is the concern.

    Hokkien noodle. My least favourite because it is a messy noodle to take. The black sauce and mess. Haha. Reminded me of my Jay. He is a messy eater and one night he had Hokkien noodle. Black mess all over his mouth. Haha.

  8. This Salted Egg Bitter Gourd is such a unique dish and I would love it.
    I always have to eat my Hokkien Noodle fix at KL's best shop in Damansara Utama. Eat now and worry later is my style.

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!

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

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...
