Houston Cafe With Angela And Yin Pheng

One of my ex-classmates sent me a message through FB one night... I was so glad that she wanted to meet me before she leaves for Kuala Lumpur and after that, Sydney... She had missed the two gatherings earlier and she has not seen for the same number of years, ie. 36 years!! LOL... When I saw her pictures in FB, I really couldn't recall much... and that increases my curiousity!

So the next day I arranged to have a lunch meeting with her and I suggested Houston Cafe in town.... And she was already there when I arrived, thanks to her sister who brought her there... 
Hi Angela... Thanks for making the effort to meet up after all these years!
And when it comes to food, they allow me to do the ordering...
And I hope they enjoyed these dishes....
Assam curry fish head... 
Clams (lala) with ginger and spring onions....
Kerabu mango!
Their signature Fried Beancurd with Salted Eggs....
The lunch come with complimentary soup....
and the bill came to RM68
 
 
Too bad we did not have a much longer time to catch with...
So much to catch up and so little time....
But I am very happy to meet up with my "young friends" again!
Hope we will have another opportunity to  get together real soon...
Thanks Angela and YP!
I had a Great Time that day!!

  2. Golden mates! Nice.

    It is always great to catch up with old friends over a great meal. The tab is pretty cheap considering you have ordered fish and lala.

  5. Always good to meet old, I mean young, friends! I haven't seen some of my old classmates for years!

    Although I do the the closer ones every CNY when we go back to the hometown.

    The kerabu mango looks good! I've been wanting to make that myself.

  7. Bet your friend enjoyed the food. Everything looks soooo good and besides, even if she can get such food in Sydney, it may not be so authentic...and of course, it would be sooooo expensive.

  8. Lala with spring onions is something unique here, normally they either steam the Lala or cook with soup/ curry, at least not too common here in Penang, not too sure about Ipoh though :p

    Ken: over here there are few styles of cooking...steamed, stir fry or soupy based..

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.......

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
