Sweating For Food In Gunong Rapat

I had another bout of "sauna" again this weekend, this "sweating endlessly" is not done under the appointment of a beautician... but perspiring under the Ipoh sun in Gunong Rapat again! See, nothing stops me... but I think this is it! Two times consecutively within a week is enough... not encouraged to take so often, right?  (especially for age group people like me here.....)
this time I wanted to try their "steamed sotong"
and it was presented like this.... the "kangkong" was perfectly made.. soft and nice..
how to resist not taking?
Ok, for this time only.... 
Another not to missed is the fried stuff that the lady made.....
For these plates, it cost RM11....
See what I meant by "sauna?"
No fan... just a canvas roof topping..
see the crowd?  
most of them order to take away...
how to stand the hot sun in the afternoon?
but for the sake of food, my patience was tested..
and they finally arrived after 15 minutes or so....
I prefer to eat it there and then...
The taste is more "original" this way.  :)
But I can't wait to finish the food and
get back to the cooling air in the car.... 
pheww...enough is enough...


  1. That's my favorite! I'm concern more on the yau yu. Is that fresh??

  2. No way will I queue for anything, never mind how good...thank you very much.

  3. My favourite. Worth the sweating, hehehe!!!...

  4. june: very fresh.. wish it is a healthy food but it is not.. :)

    stp: chat around first to pass time.. sitting down ok.. i cannot stand for long too...

    irene: can lose calories, right?

  5. Notty Claire! Wei....dont eat so much these stuffs ah...not fully well yet... later fall sick susah

  6. I didn't knew there is this place called gunung rapat despite being in Kampar for 3 years already until I read this post.

  7. kathy: now u made me scared and worried.. ok.. cut down, cut down, i must!

    anne: from your place coming to ipoh, just after simpang pulai is gunong rapat on the right..

  8. I wont sweat for food, no matter how good they are? Coz I'll feel very uncomfortable and then wont appreciate the goodness in the food :(

  9. I still can tahan the warmness but not my kids and hubby. Most probably I will have to tapau under such a hot weather..but still better than raining right? the food look delicious to me though!

  10. Sounds kind of miserable! 15 minute wait is not too bad, one evening we waited over an hour for our food!!!

  11. Sotong kangkung!!!

    I was so much in love with this dish, didn't have it for ages because I heard the sotong is bleached in 'something'?

  12. Not a fan of sotong kangkung but I can see the sotong is very huge.

    Need to get a fan la, Claire. I also cannot stand the heat

  13. you were there for lunch yesterday?? hey, i was in Ipoh over the weekend and was in Gunung Rapat to get some "heong peng" yesterday afternoon too~~

  14. even here it is freaking hot

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

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

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...
