A Scrumptious Treat In Kok Thai Restaurant, Ipoh

Laksa feast over and my girl safely back in college, we took a slow drive back to Ipoh.. it was raining heavily then. If not for my son who was the driver that moment, I would have panic for sure if I were to drive in such a heavy downpour. Nowadays my eyes are not so sharp as before and the heavy rain sure will worsen my sight on the roads...

We reached home around 5pm... soon it was time for dinner?  So fast?  But we did not go out till it was 7.30pm... and we were still undecided where to go... .  My son has 101 suggestions and finally somehow, we landed ourselves in Kok Thai Restaurant.. by then our stomachs were "very ready" for FOOD!

      Andy's Orders..... 
All Tasty Food!
Claypot Seafood Varieties... mushrooms, sea cucumbers, fish maws, oysters .. etc..
"HOI MEI POE" 

Assam Curry Seafood consisting of fish, prawns, cuttlefish and vegetables...

 Thank you for the Scrumptious Meal, AA...

  13. I like all the dishes. Love the yam but not the fatty pork bits - this is the yam with pork belly dish, right?
    Good price. The 1st 2 dishes very "chat fan" so I gotta tahan when I eat dishes like this.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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

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...
