Guess The Bigger Portion In Bee Gaik

Bee Gaik is one of our favourite dining place, I like the food portions there, they don't come out in "gigantic" portions unless we request for it.   The other day when we went for dinner, we ordered these few dishes and we requested a BIG portion of one certain dish which we all love....

Guess which dish that we ordered for Big instead of normal...
Is it Kerabu Mango?
Claypot chicken?
Joo Hu Char.... a famous Hokkien dish or is it Cantonese?
(Shredded sengkuang wrappd with lettuce leaves)
I think it is a Hokkien dish since the name is in Hokkien...
I heard that the sengkuang taste better when cut by knife instead of shred...
Why is it so?  Any explanation?
And lastly, we ordered Crispy Fried Squids...
My kids enjoyed this Peranakan restaurant  very much...

So can you guess which dish we requested for Bigger Portion?
A small token will be given away for the correct answer
which will be picked by tomorrow night... :)

  2. Pretty sure of that because you'd once mentioned in your previous post.
    Crispy Fried Squids is the answer.

  3. My wild guess will be Joo Hu Char. Usually, we don't get enough to eat when is wrapped with lettuce. Really appetizing - crunchy and sweet juicy sengkuang.

  4. Yes, cut/chop the sengkuang in julienne strips thinly with knife is taste more crunchy and juicy than shred. But it takes more time.

    ReplyDelete
  18. TM: no guessing?


    ykristen: Most of you go for the fried squids...hmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've been looking at the photos and comparing the relative sizes from the other visible items that can be used as a benchmark and my answer will be:

    Joo Hu Char

    Also coz you photographed it twice instead of once and you wrote about it in more detail. Haha!

    I can see the kerabu mango plate in the background and it seems much larger than that too.

    Where is this place Reana?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hb, this is Bee Gaik restaurant in Ipoh Garden South... Nice guess... Will reveal in tonight's post...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
