The Lonely Crab At Crab House, Ipoh

MEETING UP...  Three of my friends from the Klang valley came up to Ipoh for a day trip.  Main purpose is to eat and buy till come what may! I only got to see them around 3pm cos I went up to Penang with my kids for the weekend.  We had to hurry back so that we could have dinner with my friends.  

By the time I saw them, my friends had already 3 meals in their tummies.  They went for the famous chicken koay teow in Pulau Sembilan shop, Hakka noodles along Jalan Iskandar Shah and a bit of this and that, endless food snacks in Ipoh.  Last destination was with me, asking me to book a table in The Crab House.  I made the reservation at 5.30pm without giving my name, not sure my fault or the restaurant's fault cos she never asked!  

Reached there at the exact timing and the staff kept asking me for name... alamak!  Obviously, the lady who spoke to me did not write anything and after some ding-dong from this table to that table, we finally had a place cos the next diners would be coming at 7.30pm.  That means we have to shoot off before that time.... and in the midst of ordering, we were only given ONE crab to be shared among the 5 of us!  Why only ONE miserable crab...... ???  We did not ask the fella, no point, it was served already... obviously, with one crab, we could vacate our seats earlier... if more crabs, we would be taking a longer time to enjoy and that would defeat their purpose.

Since my friends were not that hungry, we just ordered these..... 
Appetizing dish.... 
Okra with 4 angles beans plus sotong/squid... .
Sourish plus sweet... 
Next comes the beancurd... 
Impressive presentation.... 
Followed by fried rice... 
Not bad.. got the Wok Hei fragrance.... 
And lastly, the Lonely Crab... 
Quite big but definitely not enough for 5 people!
I just took a claw... fresh flesh... 
Left us craving for more...
But when we saw the bill, it was RM207....
Should we come back again?
One crab itself was around RM120,,,
Well.... what can we say..
After all, it is The Crab House...

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...
