The Difference In Pricing Between Two Shops

THE DIFFERENCE.... Two different shops, more or less the same food and a big difference in pricing.  The first shop we went a couple of weeks ago was in town, famous for their fried fish to be eaten with porridge.  We ordered 3 dishes for 4 of us and the price was alarmingly high considering the dishes had nothing to shout about.  

Then few days ago we went to another shop in Falim, called Wong Zheng, we ordered 3 dishes too, almost the same as the one mentioned above.  The food here is much nicer and the price is reasonable too.  Summary:  we compared the food and the price and came to a conclusion that we would not be going back to the first shop but will continue to frequent the second.  LOL.... I guess Ipohians are like that... where food is nice and reasonable, the shop will flourish and on the other hand, if the food is so-so but expensive, we might not go there anymore.  

First shop.... 


Fried fish with bitter gourd.... 
Braised yam... 
The presentation here might be nicer than the second shop 
but taste wise, it is still lacking.... 
Fried minced pork....
And the bill came to RM90 for these 3 dishes.... 

Now the second shop dishes are as follows:
Fried fish with assam sauce.... 
Braised Yam and this is much more tastier.... 
Salted Egg with baby french beans and lotus.... 
For these three dishes, the bill came to Rm67...
That's the difference between the first and the second....
LOL.. just my opinion....
Today is Friday, have a nice weekend!!

  1. Yes, some places, their knives are very very sharp and the food is not necessarily nicer. If very very nice, I do not mind - value for money. If not, I will never ever go back again!!!

  5. Are the fish dishes using different type of fish? Or same type? If different type then cannot compare cos some type of fish is more expensive than other type.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
