We Went For Vietnamese

My "cook" is on strike this evening... kitchen is closed for today... leaving no choice, we ventured out to town for food. My girl suggested going for Vietnamese food, it was a first time for her coming by here.
The shop is called VNAM Kitchen Restaurant along Seenivasagam Street, Ipoh
 Quite a nice and comfortable place to dine...
Most of the staff are Vietnamese.... and they are friendly as well...
After our orders were taken, these were laid on our table in no time... 
I should have asked for lemon instead of lime...
Lemon has a stronger fragrance and the soup would be tastier... (for me!)
My order.... Vietnamese noodles with meatballs..
Definitely different from our local noodles....
I soaked in my share of basil leaves... love the smell of them...
My girl ordered Tomato Vietnamese Soup Noodles...
Something like laksa with added tomatoes to enhance the sweetness...
It comes with a plate of three types of meat.... BBQ beef, pork and chicken.... 
(Blurry picture due to my shaky hands!)
Friendly staff doing the mixing for my mom...
Our expressions before food...
After food, expression-less... 
LOL...

  2. Is the Tomato Vietnamese Soup Noodles expensive? Since it comes with three types of BBQ meat. I notice that you did not put the raw beansprout into your noodle soup. Good to eat a different cuisine now and then.

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

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...
