Dinner With Peng Yew At Lawan Kuda, Gopeng

LAWAN KUDA ALL THE WAY!! Ever since last Friday till today (Thursday), I had my meals here in Lawan Kuda for the third time... Oh my goodness, is this pure coincidence or obsession?

This evening the four of us came here for our dinner.... It was almost 7pm when we reached Peng Yew Restaurant in Lawan Kuda.  From what we heard, this restaurant is one of the best in this area and we were eager to try out for ourselves....
It was still early when we arrived... 
and we were glad that many tables were still unoccupied...
Clean and bright but we opted to sit at the paveway for more cooling air....
Well, though the place looks empty but by the time we ordered our food, 
we waited for almost half an hour before they arrived...
Maybe the signature dish needs time to get cooked....... 
This dish is not to be missed...
Ikan Haruan aka snakehead fish in wine soup... 
And part of the fish was served with celery and dried chilies... 
Very tasty...
Steamed eggs....
And eggplants with minced meat....
 And how was the food?
The picture tells the answer... 
As for the bill, it came to RM69.90 with rice and drinks...
Ok, I think I will "skip" Lawan Kuda for some time...
No more "fighting with the horse" unless with some special request!
hahahahaa....

  12. I have fond memories of this Lawan Kuda town as I have eaten in various restaurants there several times with my former boss. That guy who was the ex MP of Teluk Intan who died of cancer last year. He was good in finding good restaurants but he didn't bring me to this Peng Yew. I must look for Claire... Ha ha

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
