From Japanese Sushi To Chinese Dim Sum In Ipoh

The festive week holidays are over and tomorrow school will reopen once again.  My girl is back to college after a seven days break last week.  As usual when she is back home, she will like to go here and there for her favourite food.   During the past few days while I was working, she was out with her friends for meals and now coming to think of it, we had only two meals outside our home....

Her favourite two "hotspots" are none other than Japanese Sushi and Dim Sum...
We were here at Sushi Tei at the Parkson Parade on Friday night...
Opened not too long ago and this was my first time going there...
Part of the food we took.....
Not sure of the names.. 
But I guess this is a common sight in Japanese food... 
I can only remember this... 
It is called Penthouse....
they really look like "houses" here..
Something to do with "Lobster Salad"
I don't feel full nor satisfied when it comes to eating Japanese food...
The thing is I don't know how much rice I have put into my mouth..
I just put them in and in.... till I surrender...
The next morning we went to a new DIM SUM shop in SOHO, Ipoh ...
It is called Lok Hin Dim Sum Restaurant...
Handmade Noodles with "Dan Dan" sauce... RM6.00
As usual the egg tarts will not escape her eyes.... RM4
Barbequed Buns  RM4
Out of the above, this one only looks kind of special...
Yam with pumpkin.... very nice and tasty... RM5
For the above plus our chrysanthemum, it cost RM26....
Well, I guess eating Dim Sum is not cheap, right?

  1. Though not a fan of Japanese food but still it looks good to me. Having said that, between the two, I still prefer the Dim sum combo. All looks so nice especially the deep fried yam & pumpkin. So cripsy looking. Makes me drooled.

So usuallt I will order ramen or any soupy noodles, or rice, plus some sushi.. If only sushi, not enuff for me.. Ohh about the bill checking, same like you, if cheap then I don't bother.. If mahal or more than I expect, then only I check..

  6. Nah nah nah, that is what I call egg tart lah, not those wannabes that I usually see in Penang.
    I prefer Sushi Tei's set lunch menu, I feel they are better value and better tasting compared to their ala carte choices..

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
