Dinner For 10 At Weng Kee Restaurant, Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

FOOD MARATHON CONTINUES DURING THE FIRST WEEK CHINESE NEW YEAR...

I was very undecided of which restaurant to go to on one evening and I ended up making  a booking with three restaurants two days in advance and on the day itself, I had to cancel two of them.  Three of the restaurants I booked are Kok Thai, Pavilion and Weng Kee, all around the same vicinity of Ipoh Garden East and South.  Finally I settled for Weng Kee restaurant, it has been a long while since I have been there and when I messaged my girl about the choice of venue, she replied with a "Hurray" ... With that word, I know that I have made the right decision.  Sons?  Oh, they are not picky eaters as me and my girl.  Anything is fine with them... LOL....  

There were 10 of us for that evening dinner and we ordered 7 dishes....
The happy and "close eye"  smiles from the 10 of us.... 

Their signature Pork Ribs minus the bones... 
Kapitan chicken
Mixed vegetables...
Their signature dish again.. Ownmade Beancurd..
Yummy steamed yam with lard...
Recently read an article that lard is good for us.... 
True or not?
Claypot eggplant with fish paste... 
And the highlight of the dinner is the Buttered Fish... crispy fried...
That's her favourite and she ate most of it!
The  dinner came to RM215 inclusive of rice and drinks....
After our dinner, we adjourned for our desserts!!
A real fattening evening, no doubt about that..

  5. Not sure how good lard is but when compared with trans fat, eating lard is better than eating trans fat. Buttered fish is my pick too out of all the dishes because I prefer fish to chicken and pork.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
