Tuck Kee In Theatre Street, Ipoh

Mention Tuck Kee and many will know that it is famous for its fried noodles and some side dishes... The original shop is along the same row as Loe Wong, selling chicken and koay teow soup... I do not like to go to that street nowadays already, especially during the weekends. The whole road will be swarmed with cars and most of them just double parked and at times, one need to be very patient along the road. I am not, unfortunately so I rather not go there...too crowded and commercialized already.

But all is not lost, I can still taste their noodles now at another shop nearby... at least this one is not so crowded... maybe due to the reason that not many know about it (yet)... It bears the same name Tuck Kee in English, not so sure whether it belongs to the same owner or not as mentioned earlier. Same owner or not, I don't really mind as long as the food tastes GOOD!

"Menu" pinned on the wall...
It was around 7pm when we came by... 
There were still some empty tables... thank goodness....
There were 4 of us and we ordered the below....
 
Fat Noodles... (Tai Lok Mi)
Mixed noodles....
Short noodles... (Loe Shu Fun)
Flat noodles with egg gravey (Wat Tan Hor)
Very tasty!!
Love this very much... 
We ordered 5 "Water Dumplings" (Sui Kau)
Steamed octopus...
Just nicely cooked.. not tough...
I conveniently forgot about my cholesterol here...
It blends well with this chillie sauce...
For the above dishes plus drinks, the total cost is RM36
The noodles are tasty.. because of the "lard"
I think I would like to go again...
(but not before I do my cholesterol test!)
LOL...

  1. Arghhh.... i can go crazy over octopus, i know its unhealthy but i just couldn't resist the temptation.... T.T The Tai Lok Mee looks equally good either, we hardly get some decent Tai Lok Mee here in Penang

  5. I think eat octopus once in a while should be ok. But some people do not believe in this cholesterol thing - I am referring to the book the cholesterol myth.

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

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
