Dip-Dip In Rat Island

Back to the hotel around 5pm and waited for Andy to finish his classes... by the time we got ready for dinner, it was almost 6pm and it was time for Dinner! Andy suggested Rat Island for food .. does it sound appetizing?  LOL... Well,  we three ladies readily agreed... anything goes as long as the food is good!
Pasar Pulau Tikus... Rat Island Market! 
LOL...
So what is special here.... Andy?
Lok-Lok... or should I say.. Dip-Dip?
Yes, Lok-Lok as we used to call them during the yester-years...
These were served on the table and all you got to do is to choose 
and dip them into the hot boiling water in the middle...
That is why I called it Dip-Dip....
What shall I eat..... hmmmm.....
 Different type of sauces to choose from....
At the same time, we ordered Fried Koay Teow...
and ... my favourite drink...
All-In-One....
 Kind of messy, right?
Our dinner was quite cheap...
Only RM28 for the Lok-Lok...
And we were filled to the brim....
 
Looks like Andy enjoyed his dinner... 
We surely did.. but .....
Something is still missing after dinner...
Can you guess what it is? 
First Correct answer will get one small souvenir.. 
hahahaa...
The answer will be in tomorrow's post!!

  1. I like this type...with clear boiling water and not the satay gravy type that they have in Malacca. The gravy coiling like the mud pools in Rotorua, New Zealand...or worse...ummm..never mind! Hehehehe!!!! Then people eat the stick halfway, dip in again to get more gravy...all the saliva inside. Eyewwwwwww!!!!!

  8. Dessert or coffee is missing? We have this here! It is called Fondue. You dip the protein in the hot oil. Then for desserts there are cubes of cake or fruit and you dip in the hot sauces, cheese or chocolate.

  9. Agree with Arthur. At least this dip dip is far better than the satay celup in Malacca. RM 28 for all those is dirt cheap and best part is all are full and satisfied. Hmm...I saw a 20/50 cents coin on the table. Drinks is missing.

  19. Been to Penang a few times but tarak gone to pulau tikus market

  20. Pulau Tikus is one of the expensive spot in Penang even kopi 'o' is dearer by 10sen compared to downtown. Probably of the rich tycoons living there. Not sure about the trend now as Penang has developed so much already.

  28. I love Penang food but I won't try the Lok Lok so that I can fill my tummy with Mee Goreng, Pasembor and Char Koay Teow.

    ReplyDelete
  29. RM28 for all the sticks of lok lok at your table? That's a lot. Did you manage to finish eating all of them?

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
