Authentic Food At Pin Sum, Menglembu

ANDY TOLD ME THAT HE WANTED TO TRY ALL FOOD IN IPOH... especially those I posted up in my previous posts.  LOL.... Great, try eating all within ONE week, I said..  LOL...  And so from Day One till today, we have been eating outside food.  Unhealthy and fattening though, but never mind, once back to Johor, we "try" to eat healthy again, homecooked food and baby oats will be our meals.  *hearsay first*

This morning we started out at around 10.30am and we went to old town to visit Concubine street.  My sons have never been there, we thought the tourists would be gone by now but we were wrong.  The whole area leading to the tourist spots were jammed up and we had no choice but to detour to somewhere out from Ipoh town.  We went all the way to Jelapang for noodles but the shop was closed.  We took a big round again and landed in Pin Sum restaurant in Menglembu.  It was a good choice after all.... everyone was happy with the food here especially Andy!
While waiting for the main course to be served, we had these as appetizers....

The famous noodles in this shop called Sam Si Mee... 
*three ingredients* mainly from dried oyster, mushrooms and dried cuttlefish.... 
We also ordered flat noodles in egg gravy... 
Also known as Wat Tan Hor...
Some side dishes to go with the noodles....
Six bacon wraps.... 
Our first meal of the day.... 

Someone is taking the pictures to "lure" somebody down south.... 
Definitely a Thumbs UP from both of them!

  5. More a treat for Aaron than Andy, I'm sure - he can get such stuff in Johor...but going out to eat on one's own ain't much fun...plus of course, some things are not as nice as the ones at home...like Sibu kampua and kompia. Hehehehehe!!!!

  11. I like to walk around that Concubine Street area. It is very lively and happening. When I was a kid, my Tai Koo told me that place was better known as a hangout for concubines!
    I would love to eat that bacon wraps and Wat Tan Hor. You really know where all the delicious food are sold

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... 

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! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we
