Dinner At Bee Gaik Nyonya Restaurant, Ipoh

SHE LOVES THE JU HU CHAR...

But I do not know how to cook it right!  I tried doing it once and the taste is so far behind from what my mom used to do.  Regretted not learning the proper way to do it from my mom then... I suspect the art of stirring and sauteed is the reason for not getting it right... oh yes, perhaps the wok plays a part too.  I should be using the big stainless steel wok instead of those ceramic ones.   Anyway, I am not going to give up practising and I hope one day, I will get the 90% taste if not 100% of what my late mom used to do.  *Mom, we are missing your your cooking!!*
And so... no choice... 
My girl suggested going to Bee Gaik for the Ju Hu Char fix.... 
Difficult to get this dish in Ipoh... 
As far as I know, Bee Gaik has it... 
Where else, may I know?
This dish can be done at home... so far, so good... 
We ordered Assam Fish Curry too... 
And this is new to us... 
Salted Fish Acar...
A very appetizing dish with sweetened onions  and olives... 
Dinner at Bee Gaik Nyonya Restaurant for the four of us... 
The bill came to around RM90...
And thanks to my girl who picked up the tab... 
Alright, CNY is coming soon... 
I have to whisk up my kids' favourite dish for that special day...
I must really try practising this dish again and again... 
It is a MUST dish for Chinese New Year!

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

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...
