Buntong Fried Noodles And Other Ipoh Treasures For Dinner

FOR DINNER I TOOK MY FRIENDS TO BUNTONG FRIED NOODLES along Osborne Street... we reached there around 7pm and the place was almost crowded as usual... I heard that the quality has gone down but then it did not deter the crowd... so I guess what I heard was proven wrong... Once famous always famous, this is Ipoh...

We ordered a few dishes and they turned out pretty alright... none to perfection but then I am not that picky when it comes to chinese food... call me bias!

 The mihoon is still very tasty and "heong".... RM12
 not easy to fry the fine noodles while keeping them intact... 
Koay Teow in gravy is their signature dish... RM12
One of my friends commented that the lard taste was not there anymore...
Maybe they don't use lard anymore...
Well, no lard means not so unhealthy in a way :)

For side dishes, we ordered 10 fish balls....
Ate up 6 then only I remember to take a picture!
It cost RM1.20 for each and though it is pricey, the quality is there...

Steamed cuttlefish...

Each bite we took, the "cholesterol-ness" pitted out...
That was how my friend expressed...
hahahaha...
That really discouraged us from finishing them all...

Some kind of small chicken...
That is most well-explained...
Too sweet for our liking..
We preferred it to be gingerly seasoned than honeyed...
For the above two dishes, it cost RM39
That was our dinner for four.....
One of us in the midst of food enjoyment..
And two of us from the Empat Sekawan.... 
Apart from the food, it is the good company that really counts...

  1. Have been there a few times, we still like the noodles. The fish balls very good. Have not tried the cuttlefish nor the deep fried chicken yet. Good company is the most important.

  2. I love all the dishes you ordered here, Claire. Everything is what I love to eat. I am a Hakka and being Hakka, I love my bihun. That fried mihun is my cup of tea. I just had one last Sunday and I love the way they fry it without been too soft or broken into pieces.

    That steamed cuttlefish is worth to die for. Think of cholesterol after the meal. Hehe. Yummy spring chicken.

  3. Yes, my bihun all pecah pecah one especially using the finer Thai ones - the China ones are harder, will not break so easily. Never mind, can just use spoon to eat, no need for chopsticks. Hehehehehe!!!!

    Aiyor...ordered sotong, did not dare to eat, could not finish!!! So sayang lah... I would tapao...and eat a bit each day over the next few days!

  8. That koay teow gravy, if they don't use lard anymore it means they screw up lah! No justifying it by talking about healthiness. Healthy food can be had at home! :D

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
