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!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
