Kitchen Stories For Four

KITCHEN STORIES FOR US FOUR...

We made our way to Taman Johor Jaya, it was nearly an half hour drive to this part of the area.  The last time I came to Kitchen Stories shop was in April last year.  This shop is famous for their Teochew dishes, the name has changed not too long ago for the old couple has retired and now the business is taken over by the younger generation.  It is a good thing to preserve the authenticity of the food, coming from the Teochew clan.  Not many youngsters are into this type of hand-me-down food nowadays, they are more into the new concept, cafes and fusion.

For oldies like me, I still prefer to go to "olden" kind of food and dishes and these were what we ordered when we went there during a weekday.  It was almost 2pm and by the time we finished our lunch, the shop was going to close for the day. :)
So they have recommendations for the day... 

The menu on the wall if one is not sure what to order.... 
The crowd was still there even though it was already 2pm... 
Specially requested for this Drunken chicken... Lor Mai Jau... 
VERY BEST!! 
*if there is such an expression!*
Bitter gourd with eggs... 
Claypot porridge with fresh fish....
Something like this..... 
Spinach to balance up... 
This is special... Shrimp Roll.. very crunchy and nice!
Homestyle Pork Trotters to boost up collagen... and cholesterol? 
LOL.... 
Lunch for the four of us with the above dishes came to around RM103... 
Not too bad.. I would love to go again for the Drunken Chicken anytime!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
