Fresh Water Fish At JJ Fatt, Gopeng


The bill date shows 2 July 2020, so it was two weeks after the recovery period, I guess... it was like Breaking Free for us then unlike now, we are more or less back to Conditional Order.  Anyway, just keep safe, I keep saying and saying again.

To celebrate our breaking free, we went to JJ Fatt in Gopeng for the fresh fish dishes, commonly and popularly known as Snakehead fish aka "Sang Yu" in Cantonese.  Its benefits is healing scars more effectively.. and like other fishes, protein!  This restaurant is famous for their fish cooked with chinese wine.  For one fish, we can have two dishes, the top part goes to the soup and the body parts cooked with ginger and spring onions.  Alongside with these two dishes, we ordered another two to eat with full satisfaction.
Fish head in claypot chinese wine... 
Another dish consisting of the flesh... 
Very fresh and nicely done... 
Wild ferns... or Paku Pakis cooked with sambal.... 
And oyster omelette ... 
Total cost for 4 persons.... 
It has been more than half a year... 
Perhaps it is time to visit that place again... 
But then not so soon, perhaps after the New Year... 


  1. I hardly see any paku pakis dish in KL....never eaten before...

  2. Ooooo...paku, I like!!! Dunno what snake fish is, dunno if I've eaten before or not. Ahhhh!!! So this is Ipoh-style oyster omelette, not the same as Penang's.

  3. I like paku pakis especially kerabu style. I love all the food you ordered though I don't think I have eaten snake fish before.

  4. Yes, that was the last time we were there. Missing the paku pakis but will have to wait till it is safer to venture out.

  5. The oyster omelette has too much sauce on it? Tomato? Chilli?

  6. The price is so good and the fish dishes so tasty!

  7. hahaha... my error... should be Snakehead Fish aka Sang Yu

  8. Fish though not my favourite, I dont mind having it once in a while. For fish, I prefer steam fish.

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.......

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...
