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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
