Xing Yun Chicken Tauge At Ipoh Garden East


Lazy to cook so we joined in the crowd in Ipoh where food is concerned.  As locals, we are at the advantage, we know where to look for places which are not so commercialized and frightening crowded.  Avoid going to the town and the top 10 places to go for food in Ipoh.  LOL... We go for the residential areas where there have equally good food as well, the signature of Ipoh is the Ngar Choy Kai aka Chicken Taugeh...

I came by here to Xing Yun Tauge Ayam in 2018, *I just googled my own posts a moment ago*.  When we reached the place, it was already around 8pm and the patrons were already seated on the extra tables placed on the road.  I never like to sit on the roadside, *watched too many Facebook videos online where accidents occured* ... anyway, the tables were all occupied on the road, we opted for the ones inside the shop, though a bit warmer than outside, I really do not mind.  Felt safer inside than outside on the road...

Waited for more than half an hour for our dinner such as these... 
Fish and meatballs... 
Jellyfish aka "Hoi Chit"
Ipoh beanspouts... 
Braised chicken legs for my sons... 
Half chicken steamed... 
And a bowl of Ipoh silky koay toew for each of us... 
One for the album before we dig in our food... 
Overall cost RM80!
Well, cannot complain... 
After all, it is Chinese New Year!


  1. Yes, CNY the prices are up because people forgo their holidays and celebrations to work and earn more $$$ so that we can eat and not cook. Thanks to you and your blog, we also know the residential areas where there have equally good food as well. I also feel safer sitting inside shops to eat rather than sit by the roadside.

  2. I hear that Ipoh beansprouts are the best! This chicken rice meal is what I would really enjoy.

  3. The steamed chicken looks shiny, smooth and tasty

  4. Such beautiful big smiles! Eating outside may be fun to see all the sights, but not beside a busy street!

  5. Aha! Haven't seen you blogging about this Ipoh signature dish for a while. No wonder! The prince is home - must go for it, like how people here will go for kampua mee once they get home for Chinese New Year. Ummmm...that one your daughter-in-law? Came home cho nian with Andy,eh? Wowwwww!!! Family starting to grow now. :D

  6. The jelly fish looks really exotic to me. Perhaps I need to try this one day.

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
