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

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

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

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...
