The Boiling Crab

FOR TONIGHT'S DINNER WE WENT TO THE BOILING CRAB... A restaurant we have been talking about for more than a month now and finally got to go this evening...
Just fifteen minutes away from our house...
We thought we were the early birds... It was only around 5pm...


But the crowd was already there ... Waiting to be seated...
Getting prepared for the food...the table is laid with a white non greasy paper.. and I was told that we were to put the food on top of the table itself ...
Steamed rice...
Fresh fried calamari
Sweet Potatoes is our favourite..
Our food arrived within minutes..
Crayfish...
Fresh prawns ....
There are no plates served.. Everything is eaten and laid just like that on the table.. I don't fancy seeing the dishes served in plastic bags... Don't really understand why they are served like this, I guess it is kind of special to them.. No complaints about the food though, the seafood are very fresh and the total cost came to $41... Well, I guess once is good enough for me :)

  1. I like the sweet potato fries.. Been seeing a lot of it in Food Network.. Many cooks bake sweet potato fries instead of potato fries already..

  3. Good for seafood lovers this place. For me, I always avoid crab because so troublesome to peel. And if prawns come with shell, I also refuse to eat hah...hah...So if I come here, I only eat the Fried Calamari and Sweet Potatoes! So rugi one.

  6. hmmm.....something like the Banana leaf rice kot...only minus the banana leaf

    I wonder why they used plastic to serve the food. I thought over there they are very environmentally friendly.

  8. Crayfish? I thought you're in Sacramento? Have you moved to Louisiana??

    I thought they served in plastic bags like that in those southern states after they got hit by the hurricanes. Wonder why it becomes standard serving method now >.<

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
