Bak Kut Teh On A Cooling Evening In Ipoh

A MEATY DINNER ONE EVENING...

It was a cooling evening in Ipoh and the best time to go for a hot and soupy herbal soup called Bak Kut Teh.  The most convenient place for me to go is in town, Jalan Chung Ah Ming, shop name is Sun Tong Chew along Ave Maria school.  Do not go during school dismissal time around 6pm to 7pm... anytime after 7pm will be good. 

Tables will be along the five foot way by then... but of course, I rather go into the shop... On this particular evening, the place was pretty crowded and eventually leaving no choice, both of us have to share the table with two others. 
But by the time we were going to finish our dinner, there were empty tables available... 
Started off with these as appetizers.... 
Followed by hot piping soup with ribs...
We opted for soft meat ribs...
A small size claypot for two... and soup can be replenished anytime... 
Plate of lettuce to go with the Bak Kut Teh.... 
A very satisfying dinner for us... 
Cost around RM37 or so...
Not too bad... 
Will come back some day ...
When the night is cooling again!

  2. I eat bkt quite frequently like twice a month, cooling or not cooling weather it does not matter. It is raining now as I am typing this. Good for a bkt meal.

  3. I'm having bak kut teh too today - my missus cooked it, I just eat. If I go for it outside, I would go for the dry version - I prefer that.

  6. I had never eaten BKT in Ipoh as I thought only the Chicken Rice is the best there.

  7. I agreed. But on a cold evening is so comforting and welcoming.

  8. From the picture, the interior of the shop looks different. They might have given the shop a face lift...so long didn't go there! I like their bkt!

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
