El Pollo Loco

 Along the freeway there are many outlets selling fast food, the common ones are Mcdonalds, Denny, In N Out, Panda Express (chinese fast food) , Taco Bell (Mexican), Burger King..... but one I love so far is this El Pollo Loco... whatever that means...
El Pollo Loco
My sister told me that I must try these succulent grilled chicken drumsticks!
The skin are almost grilled till they are oil-less...
Can be ordered with or without side orders....
They are eaten with side-kicks...Salsa and the green looking sauce... 
I kept refilling the Salsa!  Best to be eaten with the grilled chicken!
They are cheap too.. less than $10usd (don't convert)
I feel they are much better than Kenny Rogers which surprisingly were not seen at all over here..
I also notice that there are too many fast food outlets, 
seems like they are everywhere......
like what we have in Malaysia but only that ours are hawker stalls...
Which is healthier... fast food or hawker stalls?  :)


  1. Hawker stalls are better because the food would be fresh, but hygiene????

  2. I see that you are enjoying yrself in US.

    And yes, for a huge serving of food that you had is way too cheap of USD10. It kinda reminds me of Kenny Rogers though.

    But Kenny Rogers, serving quite small though. ;)

    Hmmmmmm, sometimes, I yearn for fast food. Eating too much hawker food can be sian, also.

  3. Not adventurous about fast food outlets like Kenny Rogers, McD, Burger King, etc but these grilled chicken drumstick looks great.Love the cripsy skin.

  4. Wow...those succulent grilled chicken drumsticks looks damn JUICY! From the skin, I could already tell how tender they are *drooling*.

  5. Just notice you're having a good time oversea!
    Erm, I would say hawker food is healthier....

  6. RM10 for that? Waiyorrrrr!!!! So cheap lah! Looks soooo nice! I love Mexican!!! Yum! Yum! Here...cannot eat Mexican with that kind of money lah...and mana tau, ciplak one...bluff we people here only. Yours there sure original, authentic... Worth it, definitely worth it!!!

  7. My daughter loves Taco Bell. Mexican fast food - they have an outlet in Singapore.

  8. woaahhh next time must bring me and caroline go!!!

  9. aiks..just realized not in malaysia.. T3T

  10. i love roasted chicken even more than the common fried chicken

  11. I love grilled chicken. It looks scrumptious. My mouth's watering just by looking at the photo. I don't care which is much healthier. As long as its edible that's good for me.

  12. Panda Express, i know that. I search from the google knowing that they have over 500 outlets in US. Proud with our Chinese food.

  13. Home cooked food is healthier :DDDD, But food from the fast food chains and hawkers are tastier, there is a saying goes like this.."tasty food are mostly not healthy". *sigh*

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…
