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.

  6. I would enjoy the steamed fish. Lots of ginger and black bean, must be flavourful. Pig stomach?? No for me. Hehe

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
