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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
