Authentic Shop Hoong Toh In Old Town

My mom told me that she has not been to Hoong Toh restaurant for more than 30 years or more now! Oh dear, I must take her here one day, I told myself... Hoong Toh is not a high class restaurant but it was one many years ago. Weddings were held in this shop and the last time I attended the wedding, yes, it was more than 30 years ago. I guess all the old chefs have retired by now and needless to say, the authenticity of the food has also gone with them. With one consolation in mind, perhaps the cooks have passed on their "secret recipe" to the ones who have taken over....

One fine evening I took my mom and "company" here for dinner.... Now she doesn't have to say she has not come by for more than 30 years already!   hahahaaa....
The place has been "refurbished" ... those days, it was not as "bright" as it is today...
What do these painting depict?

When it comes to ordering, we allow the "lady boss" to suggest...
She told us this is their signature dish... "Hoong Toh Meen"
It goes well with the vinegar ... according to individual...
This is a "Must"... 
Yee Wat Hor Fun
(Fish paste with flat noodles)
Good try for the first timers...
Singapore mihun...
I think my handphone camera is not doing some credit here... (lighting problem)
For side orders, this is nice... crispy fried wanton...
And their signature "popiah/lobak"
I cannot remember the name...
It is crispy on the outside and a combination of minced meat and vegetables on the inside...
And now the bill... 
I was a bit taken aback to be splashed with ;RM55 +-
What do you say?

  8. Hello Claire, on average RM11 for each dish, seems ok to me. Good of you to take your mom there so that she can now say she has been there recently!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
