Special Dishes At Chuen Kah Fook Restaurant, Menglembu

BACK IN IPOH...

I am so grateful to have a group of friends who love to go for food-adventure, just like me!  We love eating though we could not eat a lot like in our younger working days.  During our working days, we could not go without rice even for a day, big portion some more.  But ever since we retired, we now only shared a small portion of rice!  Yes, one small bowl of rice shared among two of us... sometimes I take only a spoonful and at times, no rice at all... that is how I eat now.  :)  Oh, I forgot to mention, that is usually for dinner... during the day, I eat a bigger portion... now I understand why the saying goes like this...

Morning time...  eat like a King...
Night time... eat like a pauper....
(Only when it comes to rice.... )

For this dinner, we went to Chuen Kah Fook in Menglembu, first time visit for me, thanks to my foodie friends, they introduced this restaurant to me and I went for the second time after that....
We had their special signature dish... 
Steamed fish with lots of ginger and black bean sauce....
Claypot chicken with pig stomach... 
Something very different and very tasty!
Can just eat this without any rice....
And claypot water cress noodles..
Steaming hot when served... s
Our three dish dinner.....
And the "packed" restaurant.... 
Grinning happily here is my friend...
Thanks for bringing us here!

  1. I read it is best to eat more early in the day, but not around bedtime. But that is when we are the most hungry! Even so, I am trying hard.

  2. Tasty food, especially the fish. Yes, better eat more at breakfast and less for dinner.

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

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
