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!

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
