Buttered Fish At Wing Kee Restaurant, Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

Classes are going to start tomorrow... and as usual before she goes back, she wants to consume all the food she loves so that the longing will not "taunt" her and make her miss Ipoh food... LOL....

One of her favourite dish is found here in Wing Kee Restaurant, she loves that one dish there where other places do not have.  Since there were only three of us, we ordered three dishes thinking that they would come out in small portions.  But to our surprise, each dish was as big as the other and I think they were enough for five persons instead of three...
Their steamed smooth eggs garnished with onions is a good choice....
Kids will love this dish... 
But for three persons, we really have to take big scoops on our plates....
so much so that I will not want this dish again for the next few months or so... LOL...
Saved by these sourish and spicy vegetables.. at least it neutralizes the steamed eggs...
Very nicely cooked... *gau suin gau lak*
There.... my girl's favourite dish of all times...
Only this restaurant has it... "Buttered Crispy Fried Talapia" 
*Lai Yau Yue*
Crispy and nice... each piece taken has a crunching sound...
Tell me... healthy or not...   LOL..
But thank goodness, they took the trouble to strain out the oil...
Just look at that... 
Enormous portions, right?
Can feed a family of five or six... surely....
Ok, as for the bill, it came to RM52... phewwww...
I was expecting something over RM60...

  1. The price is very reasonable. The second dish is so sour and spicy - will take many bowls of rice to finish eating it.

  5. Hi Claire, thank you for commenting on my post. Upper crossed syndrome is caused by back postures so it can be fixed. If not fixed when old will become really bent and cannot straighten up anymore.

    2. Hello Claire, I have updated my post to include two links on how to identify UCS and how to fix it. Perhaps you can check out my post again. I think in summary it means doing the correct exercise to fix it and don't hunch over computers with bad posture for a long time in one sitting.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
