Best Johor Fish Ball Noodles At Lai Kee, Tun Aminah, Johor

FRESH FROM THE OVEN POST! My best taken noodles so far..... YUMMYLICIOUS!!

Just this morning we had a very nice and authentic breakfast at a shop in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah. Heard that this is a household name in Johor Bahru, operating since 1987 and still is as crowded as ever for three generations now.  Hmmmm... hope it will still be "handed down" for generations to come, very difficult to find this type of authentic and tasty food handed down from the fore-fathers. :)  Thanks to my in-laws, they brought us here this morning to have our tummies filled.

It is not surprising that we have to wait almost half an hour for our noodles to come.  Meanwhile they served us with crispy fish cake for sides.  There are two types of the crispy fish cake and we tried them both.  Slightly on the salty side if eaten just like that but together with the noodles, they blend in very well for the soupy broth was not salty at all.  As for the fish balls, they are handmade, comes out with different sizes, not snowy white as those sold on the shelves.  These handmade fish balls reminded me of my younger days' taste.... get what I mean?  Very rare to get these real fresh Ikan Parang fish balls nowadays..... everything seems to be so commercialized...

Must order these "sidekicks"
And the fish pancakes... 
When the noodles arrived half hour later, we had to order another round of "sidekicks"....
The second round of the sidekicks!

For 4 people, we actually ate around RM70 worth of fish!
Looks like we were a hungry lot... hmmmm.....

  1. So this place preserves your food heritage! Is it close to your home? I know you will be returning! The fish looks very good, I have never seen it prepared like this.

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 …
