Don't Compare With Ipoh At Chinatown, London

TIME FOR LUNCH...

Took the two tourists to Chinatown which can be reached by the underground train either to Leicester Square or Piccadilly Circus.   Did not take any pictures of the Chinatown, I guess we were too busy looking for the best restaurant to go in.  All look pretty alike to us... in the end, we settled for a restaurant called Royal Court.  The place was crowded when we walked in, we had to go to the basement!  LOL... The food here must be good since the place is crowded...

Oh, when I asked the waiter for "Wat Tan hor" aka "flat noodles with egg gravy", he replied, "You all from Malaysia?"  How did he know?  To our surprise, he told us he is also from Malaysia and hails from Ipoh too!!  Wahhh... what a coincidence!  Own kampung people.... and after that, he recommended these dishes.... and cautioned us this... " don't compare the food here with Ipoh!! "  hahaha...
Oh, this is the wine list menu...
As usual the guys ordered beer for themselves... 
While us ladies sipped chinese tea... 
My BIL ordered Beef Stew rice...
Actually... we ordered three plates to be shared among us.... 
Cos I know that Their portions would be enormous!
Not too bad... of course, cannot be compared to Ipoh... 
Flat noodles with beef.... 
Alright, we managed to finish them all... 
With two big guys, it shouldn't be a problem...

  2. The wat tan hor looks more like chow ngao hor. what a small world (so cliche) to meet a fellow from same kampung so far away.

  3. Everything looks really good, not like the one I went to in Chinatown, Hongkong people-owned, I think. Everything was tasteless, so bland - no msg, I guess.

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

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... 

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
