Hot Porridge At Hock Kee, Ipoh On A Cold Night

BACK TO IPOH.. we did not have time to cook and since it was a cooling evening, we went for hot porridge!  This is my second time eating at Hock Kee Teochew Porridge Restaurant.  Surprisingly, the place was almost occupied when we reached there around 7pm even though it was a weekday.  The first time I went, the place was quite empty... it must be getting quite popular as time goes by.  Good for them!

I remember the last time I came here,  I saw one table ordering claypot fish.. it looks kind of special so this round, I ordered out of curiosity... 
It came out something like this.... kind of "gelish" with the white dot there... 
Other than that, taste was alright... 
If I were to do it at home, I would do it differently... (minus the dot)

Ordered this too.... eat when it is hot... 
Salted fish minced meat beancurd which enhances the taste... 
Three dishes cost around RM50 with porridge and drinks.... 
The night was still young... and cold
But that did not deter us from getting two scoops for Baskin Robbins at Jaya Jusco...
Now... the night is complete...

  1. That's a tilapia, the white dot is the eye, isn't it? I love bitter gourd omelette.

  2. I heard that teochew porridge is porridge served with small dishes right? We have it here in Kuching.

  6. I must admit that I have been a stupid client who loves BR ice cream for many years. Their monthly promo on the 31st is silly to deceive naive people like me where they only allow take-aways to enjoy the big discounts. I always had to pay normal "fool" price on 31st because I wanted to enjoy the ice cream right away. When I sat down to eat, i noticed all the youngsters eating away their take-aways happily at the table. WTH!! So next time I will do the same. LOLOL

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....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
