Our Brunch In Pak Khong Restaurant, Kepong

Good food does not necessary come from expensive restaurants and beautiful decor on the outside.  Before we left for Ipoh, we were taken to this place here in Kepong, it is just next to the market style of place called Pak Thong.  We reached here around 11.30am and were the first customers for the day. 
We parked our car here and walked to the back... or is it the front??
I think the front is an open concept and we walked to the back which has an air con room....
Despite a few holes on the table cloth and a few mozzies that "greeted" u...
the food here is still worth coming by for.....
Their steamed fish was very fresh and the sauce reminded me of my childhood days....
I remember my mom used to steam like this too... simple and nice...
Sambal Paku Pakis....
er.... what shall I call this?
Innards?
Ok, stewed mixed innards....!
The knuckle but cooked in chinese style....
Not so sinful because it is only the skin and the bones... or should I say just the tendons....
Another dish not to be missed is the Claypot Curry Creamy Prawns that look like Lobsters...
Enormous that they were halved when served....
Well cooked.... the juiciness of the prawns in curry....
(Lai Yeow Curry, they called it)
The six of us could not finish the five dishes.... 
The remainder did not go into waste but were brought back to Ipoh....
And the bill from this Kepong restaurant came to RM212..... hmmmm....
Any comments from the pricing?

  4. Won't be surprised that it would cost that much. These two dishes, fish & prawns would cost a bomb. All in all, food looks great.

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...
