Homecooked Dishes At Kampong Simee "House cum Shop"

We left Rawang around 5.30pm and by the time we reached Ipoh, it was almost 8pm... and before going home, we took our dinner in Kampung Simee. This time we tried out the food in a corner house cum food stall, just opposite the Chung Tak Primary School in Kampung Simee. I have been there several times but have not tried the following dishes before. Love the home-cooked dishes that come with a reasonable price. Well, back to Ipoh, the prices cannot be too sky-high.. hahahaa...
 Their special for the day is "homecooked" Steamed Pork Ribs...
For greens, I ordered this "dragon vege..... "
And to furnish all the whole package, a simple "Mixed Omelette"
For three dishes and three plates of rice plus drinks, 
the bill came to around RM34.00 ($11usd?)
I think it is pretty reasonable for the dishes such as these...
After the meal, it was time to go home and rest...
A wonderful getaway and looking forward to another one next month! :)

  15. Very affordable dishes and looks quite tasty too.

    The vege is known as "青龍菜" (green dragon vege - ching loong choy) and it is actually chives "韭菜" grown using a special technique by farmer Lau Kuan in Cameron Highlands.

  16. This green dragon vegetable is actually chives (kao choy) grown in a special way.

    Taken from the star dated 16 may 2005:

    "He lets his chives grow for six weeks before chopping off the top half of the leaves to be used as mulch and fertiliser.

    He then covers the remaining chives with a thick nylon netting for 10 days in a process known as blanching before harvesting them.

    Limiting sunlight made the chives more tender and delicious as they contained less fibre, Lau said."

    The title of the above news article is "Farmer rejects pesticide use in growing chives".

  17. mecoy: omelette is nice everywhere..


    mun: yeah, it looks like kau choy and also taste almost the same.. only that it is broader and looks kind of "higher class." Maybe because of the name? :)


    kathy: come Ipoh la!!!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
