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 >.<

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 here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
