Lunch At Lan Je Rawang

BEFORE WE LEFT FOR IPOH THE NEXT DAY, we took lunch at Lan Je in Rawang again ... Belinda told us this stall is famous for its steamed talapia fish... according to her, the owner makes sure that the fish is steamed 2 times, first to remove the excess water then steamed again, at the same time, the texture of the fish remains and not overcooked at all. We waited 45 minutes for our lunch to come, started to grumble already..... but when the food was tasted, it was worth waiting for....

The shop was crowded... thank goodness there was this empty table waiting for us...

to while away the time, I took some snapshots...

finally after 45 min, the cuttlefish with big onions arrived...very tasty sauce...

stir fry leafy vegetables (sweet potato leaves)

with the minced ginger and sauce, it was the best so far I have ever tasted...

too bad... Lan Je doesnt know I m advertising for her... the lunch cost us RM50.00
a bit expensive but it is worth it because of the aroma of the dishes....


  1. wow, another outside adventure c: do you always eat out?

  2. no iceah, i dont always eat out unless i go visiting outskirts with my frens or family. Last week, we had a dinner out of town, its 3 hours drive from my home and we stayed overnite in a fren's place. haha... its expensive to eat out all the time...

  3. cuttle fish!! i love 'jiu hu'...but i love sotong even more! yummy yummy...

  4. Hi Reanaclaire, love the pics.
    I used to fish for Tilapia in outskirts of Ipoh ponds and pools, but don't eat them....prefer sea fish, ha ha.
    But love udang galah.....used to fish them at Kuala Selangor, Tanjong Tualang....BIG ones back in the 70s.

    The dishes sure look delicious. Guess Malaysia now holidays for the Raya, huh? Have a nice holiday, Lee.

  5. i like the leafy one and the fish..i love one of the singa yummy..

  6. I like the cuttlefish dish the most

  7. i love fish, but i prefer if the Tilapia had some black bean sauce. but it's such a waste if the fish was really fresh the best way is really steamed simple. i like onions alot ... hope as i advance in age in another 10 years more, it wont make me pass more gas...hehehe

  8. by the way do you love to cook? teach me a little of your good recipes c:

  9. i admire your tenacity for going after good foods, for me, 45 minutes i cabut liao lah. by the way my friend just called me from Ipoh, he told me Lou Wong Gya Choi Kai, was like jammed packed, true ka sister?

  10. yes, true eugene..esp now during holiday season. But after this week, will be quieter... it is always like that during festive season..

  11. Yeah I hv heard about this place - famous for the steamed fish - seems everyone order 1 fish per individual there!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
