Taiping Cendol And Restoran Kakak

It was nearly noon when we reached and the first place we wanted to try out was the cendol which has been recommended by a blog friend and we came by here... Bismillah Cendol Taiping... It is along Chung Thye Phin Road, in fact there are three cendol stalls around that vicinity...
But we chose this cos I saw people standing and sitting here...
Where there is a crowd, the food must be ........... (fill in the blanks.. hahahaa)
 Besides the cendol stall, there is also Pasembor and a laksa stall nearby as well... 
 Jameema Cendol...
 We ordered a plate of Pasembor to share....
How's the taste?
Well, all I can say is I like it...
The gravy is not so thick so it is not that "filling"...
 How about the cendol?
 Compared to Penang Road one, this one is less creamier and not so sweet...
Kind of suitable for the more health conscious ones like me.... hahahaa....
I finished up the whole bowl without feeling "worried"....
 Next we "jumped on the wagon"...
and we found this Kakak Restaurant in Jalan Pasar....
Looking at the crowd on a Sunday afternoon means the food must be good here...
Instead of koay teow (flat noodles), I opted for the "loe shu fun"  (rat noodles)
 A very "size-zy" bowl but I managed to finish it all the same! 
We added a few fish balls as extras and....
oh dear, I forgot to take the picture of the sambal!
The sambal belacan (chilie paste) is the "Ummph" and the "Kick"....
The cost is RM3.80 per bowl..
And my stomach was super full by then....
Time to rest.... ZZZzzzzz.....

  10. Kakak is the only well known keow teow soup for outstation people and visitors... There are many other places which are much nicer to makan in the morning.

    Next time, show you the way to Bee Loon Yong Tau Foo keow teow soup. Slightly pricey because of so many "liew" you can order from. Their curry noodle is nice too.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... 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

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
