Buntong Fried Noodles Behind Old Majestic Cinema, Ipoh

Yearning for the Buntong Fried Noodles again... this time I went along with my sister who didn't know where this place was relocated... and now she knows, she will bring her friends there next time. We reached MX11 at around 7pm and surprisingly this time, the place was quite full already.

Most of the patrons were patiently waiting and we were told that the "chef" had not arrived yet and we laughed upon hearing that.  Normally the chef  should be early, right?  Anyway, for our dinner we waited for around 45 minutes and meanwhile we ordered two sets of these Fresh Fish Balls to pass time...
One set comes in a set of 5.... and it cost RM6 per plate...
I was thinking "wahhhhh... so expensive ah...."
But when I bite into it... Wow... they were so fresh and nice...
And we ended up ordering another set!
We ended up "interviewing" the man who sells these
The fish balls were prepared by his relative who uses "Tau Foo" fish to do them... 
All he needs to do is to steam them back for 7-8 minutes...
Must not be too long nor too short a time... otherwise they won't taste GOOD!
Highly recommended....
Finally the noodles came....  RM12
This is a Must Order Koay Teow...
The gravy was overfilling the noodles.....
I love it!!!
We also ordered a plate of meehoon....  RM12
Very tasty.... maybe I was too hungry then....
Waiting for 45 minutes is no joke even though there are fish balls around... 
hahahaaa....
Our portion of food are for three persons....
And our total cost for this dinner came to RM36 for the food only....
Well, I will certainly come again...
Will bring my guests this time... 
It opens only in the evening till late in the night....

  8. Noodles look good! They should let the fish balls stand on some kitchen towels first to soak away a bit of the oil.

  11. Wah, the meehoon looks delicious! I guess if the fishballs were good, then the price is worth paying for. After all, we are not going to sweat it out in the kitchen to make fish balls, so we have to pay for the labour :)

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
