Seafood Restaurant Yew Kei At Tanjung Tualang


Many have not heard of this small town Tanjung Tualang before, it is about 40km away from Ipoh town.  The township is famous for their freshwater prawns... not so much on crabs which I have thought all along.  Gone are the days when I used to come here for lunch with my kids and friends when I used to send them back to Petronas University. 

We trio continued our day trip to this corner restaurant called Yew Kei, among a few restaurants on the same row.  I think by now we have tried them all and their prices plus the food are almost the same as one another.  For the three of us, we did not order much, we need to save some space for dinner!  LOL...

Andy requested for Fried Oyster with omelette... 
A Small Size plate of their signature noodles... 
Indeed it was very tasty... just look at the generous toppings!
Plate of Wild Ferns called Paku Pakis.... 
And of course, their famous steamed prawns... medium sized... 
Two for each of us... 
The best part is always the head which can also be "hazardous" for some... LOL... 
For the 4 dishes above, the price came to around RM100... 
The portions were just nice, no need any packaging home... 


  1. Looks good lah! One day I must go for foodie adventure at all the places you have makaned. LOL!

  2. Six prawns, two there were three of you. Your daughter-in-law went too? LOL!!!

  3. 100 is a good price for 4 dishes including the big tasty prawns.

  4. The prawns look good and look big!

  5. The prawns look huge! And Phil would love these beautiful fried oysters! They can be hard to find here.

  6. Fried oysters for me!!! And fresh prawns too.

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
