Hainanese Food At Cathay Restaurant, Ipoh

BRUNCH DELIGHTS... with my friends, the three of us went to Cathay Restaurant again, this time we wanted to try out their chicken chop.  We decided to go after 10.30am so that my appetite cravings are stronger around that time.  LOL... I did not take anything for breakfast, except a glass of barley green.  So by the time we reached the place, I was famished by then.

We ordered two sets of chicken chop and one set of French toast, Hainanese styled.  While eating the chef came out to talk to us cos one of my friends mentioned he was from Teluk Intan.  And both of them started talking about history of the town, etc etc.... and the chef himself told us that he started cooking at the age of 12 and he has been cooking for 66 years.  Yes, he is almost 80 now and if we want authentic food, we better come more often before he really retires for good.  LOL... 
Their specialty French Toast was served first..... 
This cost around RM5.50 or so....
Two sets of chicken chops RM13.90 each.... 
Remember, this is a coffeeshop not a cafe... 
The presentation is like that... la... 
I like the taste of the chicken chop...
The sauce is a bit diluted... but overall, it is nice...
Since the cook was talking to us, we asked him for more choices of food... 
We ended up ordering Hainan noodles... RM5.50
It reminded me of noodles Arthur Wee used to post up... 
This might look unimpressive...
surprisingly the taste is much better than the looks of it...

  1. yummy hainanese chicken chop! the noodles look plain, but doesn't matter if it is tasty. RM5.50 for a plate of noodles is cheap.

  2. Not quite like our Foochow fried noodles but I bet it tastes good! Not crazy about Hainanese pork chop - will eat but give me really good Hainanese chicken rice anytime! I love their curry rice too!!!

  5. What is a Hainanese style French Toast? I had eaten Hainanese chicken chop before, does not really like it as the tomato sauce is too overpowering for me.

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

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....

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...
