Takeaway Dishes From Sun Marpoh Restaurant, Ipoh

LAZY DAY... and I ended up calling the restaurant to prepare three dishes for dinner.  Just a short drive away, I ordered from Sun Marpoh restaurant, it is a family-like place, not the posh kind of restaurant and we have been regulars here ever since my first kid was born!  That means the restaurant has been around for at least 30 years, I think... LOL... 

Slowly as the years go by, the restaurant flourished until we do not feel like going there anymore cos we do not like waiting.  But since the Covid-19, with the MCO, CMCO and all the orders, everyone prefer to eat at home or go online delivery.  Many restaurants and eating stalls are naturally affected, business is not as good anymore.  The best and crowded restaurants are now turning quiet... however, we can still "help" them by ordering food for takeaway.  

It has been some time since we last ate fish so I ordered dishes which I could not cook in the house.  

Nestum chicken.... RM17
We miss this family dish... 
Kids' dish, I would say... 
LOL... 
My son's favourite....RM9
Eggplant with minced meat.... 
I requested for basil leaves too..
Unfortunately they did not have..... 
Steamed fish in sweet sour sauce.... RM30
I only did the ABC soup.... 
The rest including the rice was bought from the restaurant....
Their herbal soup is on the house... 
Whole cost came to RM57.50....
I think that is pretty reasonable... right?

  2. The food looks good. I love such old school restaurants...provided the old folks have not retired or passed away. Sometimes the young ones take over and they simply can't live up to the name. Sad.

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

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...
