Seafood At Kuromon Ichiba Market, Osaka

ON OUR SECOND FREE N EASY DAY...

We went to Kuromon Ichiba Market, it is really an eye opener for me, I seem to be fascinated with almost everything I saw there.  Food.... Seafood... and their fantastic prices.  Imagine eating two slices of melon for 1,000 yen...*RM37*!!  Two slices only!  But then... one bite on the fruit, I am so WOW by it!  So super juicy that we were not really biting on them!  Alright, very expensive but it is worth trying them out... unfortunately I did not take a picture of them.... I thought it would be like melon.. a normal melon... LOL..

One must go to this market, not to be missed, just eat and don't start to convert... LOL...
I guess this is a tourist spot... a very good one, I say...
Here we are... at the entrance... 
This type of Welcoming Robots are a norm there... 
Lots of choices... we really had a hard time choosing what to eat.... 
I cannot resist this Unagi!
And we bought two pieces to try...
Part of our food for breakfast...
Too bad I did not take pictures of the other food we ordered..
I was too busy.... really busy!
Why did I keep taking this???.. 
Saw this too.... 
Fresh and succulent... 3,000 yen if not mistaken!
Grilled flesh.... 
So what do we have here?
This!!  
Just have to be patient and queue up for our turn....
Take our pick!
And he will do the cooking....
With the shell as the "pan"
And after a few minutes.... 
EAT!
Yes, we tried this too.... 
Sea Urchin!
First time I see and eat this.... RAW.... 
It is served like this... RM37 for one... 
OK, anyone dare to try?
Tasted something like cockles to me.... 
Then of course, we tried the Kobe Beef too... 
2,000 yen for a small packet...
They grilled for us there and then...
Oh dear, I could not find my photos... 
Just too bad....  
I guess I have to make another trip to this place again..
LOL... 
Empty handed but not not empty stomached.. 
LOL..

  3. I went inside this market on every trip and ate almost everything that was cheap only. Their food is so fresh and really authentic Japanese style. I had tried their melons but they are over priced!! I better eat their melon ice creams will do.

  6. RM37 for two slices of melon! And there I was feeling miserable and guilty as in one moment of folly, I had a durian mille crepe for RM15.00. Must not spend so foolishly anymore, poor ol' pensioner that I am.

  7. Are those scallops on top of the "pan"? I like scallops but not the unagi.

    I have not tried sea urchin before.

  8. Cool! We were there too but didn't eat any street food, we ate mostly in restaurants. I'm not a fan of unagi & uni. I think we ate a lot of Wagyu during the trip. Hahaha! xoxo

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 here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
