Cheap And Nice In Bali Assam House, Ipoh

The first time I went to BaliAssam House, I did not manage to get a table, the place was already crowded even though it was before 7pm.. Not wanting to give up, my friends and I went there again last night and to our delight, there was a table for the three of us.... The place was quite crowded again, only one shop lot and we made a count on the table, only 11 actually... if the 12th group comes, they will have to wait for their turn...
So what are their signature dishes?
The first thing I saw is the Assam Cod Fish Head....
Prices are very reasonable...
Small RM19.90
Medium RM29.90
Large RM39.90
We ordered the small portion... around 250gm of cod fish...
Not bad.. each of us can gave 2 to 3 small pieces... LOL...
Curry comes with brinjals, okra and pineapple slices..
So this is Bali style curry!
Not sure what this is called but written on menu is long beans...
To me, they are french beans' babies...
Paku Pakis Thai Styled...
Sweet sauce... I like it...
Minced Steamed Fish Beancurd... 
Love the gravy...
As for the bill, just look at that!
So super cheap... no service or GST charged..
Well, anything cheap and nice in Ipoh, the crowd will be there!

  1. This looks like my kind of food. I like!!!

  2. I like the curry - brinjal, okra, pineapple slices and fish - perfect to go with rice to eat for lunch (but not for dinner as I don't eat rice for dinner). Only RM4 for the veges and RM6 for the tofu!? Super affordable. I will make a note to eat there if I ever visit Ipoh. Does it open for business for lunch?

  3. All looks good. Just assam cod fish head, I can eat 2 plates of rice. Best part is the bill, cheap.

    1. hahahaa.. I also thought so... now no GST yet so better eat before it implements!

  4. OMG, the bill is screaming for me to visit the place! Hahaha!

    1. hahahaa...You can order lots more with Sg currency!

  5. Wah, you sure that's the right bill? So cheap!

    1. That is why I put up the bill.. otherwise no one will believe me.. :)

  6. wah, the asam fish looks so good leh!! really can wallop two bowls of rice with even just the gravy, haha.. and the long beans also looks good leh, kind of balance up the spiciness and sourness of the fish.. but the other two dishes, a bit too oily for me~~ :)

    1. Irene Tan also can wallop two bowls.. so for you, maybe three bowls of rice! hahaha... I think they are not oily... you just have to taste and see...

  7. Cheap AND good food! No wonder so many crowds!

  8. Bali+Assam sound very hoi wai already.. haha.. Wah cod fish ok wor, not very expensive.. Cod is 'suet yue' rite.. Expensive fish.. Biasa la everytime we order curry fish head, everyone can only dig about 1-2 small pieces only.. Most of us can only scoop the gravy with rice nia.. Oohhh I love that steamed minced fish thingy.. Bet the gravy taste like sharkfins soup..

    1. Yeah, I was also surprised by their reasonable prices... little bit also never mind.. cod fish wor.. hahaha... but never tasted cod fish curry till now...

  9. All the dishes I like! And so cheap some more!

    1. If the boss reads this, sure the pricing will be up and up after that.. hahahaa...

  10. Wahhhhhhhh drooling over the food!

    And so affordable too!

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
