Vietnamese Dinner At Vnam Kitchen, Ipoh

THE HEAVY THUNDERSTORM STOPPED IN TIME... It was almost 6pm when the rain gave way for us to go out for dinner.   No cooking for that evening, we have eaten all the "rice" in the bucket and I had not replenished it as yet then.  We did not have any idea on what to eat, we drove to Ipoh Garden East and looked for vegetarian food but it was not opened.  Went to another shop but the food did not look "attractive."

So frustrated... and I thought Ipoh has a lot of good food?  Yes, it certainly does have lots of nice and yummy food, so most probably the reason is that both of us are fussy eaters!  What I want might not be what she likes... I am a meaty person and she is a vegetable girl... what contrast!

Anyway, after some driving here and there, we ended up eating not local food but Vietnamese food for our dinner.  Both of us readily agreed when we happened to pass by this Vnam Kitchen at Jalan Seenivasagam, opposite Overseas Restaurant.  This is the second time I visited this Vietnamese restaurant.
We were the second customers there upon entering... 


We shared a glass of Dragonfruit juice.. RM8.90
Then the condiments arrived... 
Sweet and sour noodles soup for my girl... RM12.90
Eggs and meat inside the soup.... 
I have the Pho for myself... 
Goes well with the basil leaves and lots of lime... 
My order came with grilled chicken and pork... RM13.90
For our side dish, we have these paper rice wraps... 
No meat inside... 
Dip it generously into the plate of sauce... 
And it would taste a lot better... 
For our dinner, the bill came to RM45... 
Cannot afford to eat like this all the time...
Reanaclaire's Kitchen must be reopened before I go broke!

    2. You can start from your own home first and no rental..
      Do you know that the successful chain of Delicious started from their homes and the guests were their friends who paid a certain price and they had to eat what the chefs served. The rest is history and Delicious was later sold to a listed company for a handsome price making the founders overnight millionaires!

  4. I know I'll love this place. I love ASEAN and Indian cuisines, anytime nicer than the countries up north or to the west!!!

  5. Food looks good. I've not been to this restaurant though I know of its existence. Somehow hubby favours Thai food more than Vietnamese.

  6. It may have been expensive, but this may be the most beautiful restaurant I have seen you eat in!! The water lilies on the wall are so gorgeous, and the dishes are plated so beautifully. What a good choice you made. I KNOW your problem! Anne Marie is a vegetarian, so she cannot eat at places that we all like. It is hard finding spots that we all like.

  7. Not easy to find Vietnamese food or restaurants over here. Haha. When think of Vietnamese cuisine, pho and spring rolls come into my mind.

    I like the water lily decor. So colourful.

  12. if i'm not mistaken, there are 3 vietnamese restaurants in this road. Try the 1 called "vietnam diem hen". They serve banh mi or vietnamese sandwiches and they make their own bread in the kitchen. One of my favourite tea time places to go for a nice simple sandwich and some strong vietnamese coffee.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
