Feeling Heavy At Lorong Selamat, Penang

AFTER OUR CHURCH SERVICE ON SUNDAY, my girl suggested having our lunch at Lorong Selamat... It had been a couple of years since we last went there for food. We do not like to "clash" with the crowd and I was expecting the place would be crowded especially on a Sunday. But to our astonishment, there was no jam at all and no crowd too along the road.  It was a Sunday lunch hour... hmmmm... I wonder why....
Maybe it was not a working day... and we could easily get our seats....
Oh, maybe it is an off-peak weekend, not many tourists too...
The food we ordered were served in no time... 
With three big prawns, the price would not be "small"... it cost RM9.50... 
Maybe this is the reason why.... hmmm.... 
Koay Teow Th'ng for my girl....
And a bowl of laksa to share.... 
Something is missing here... 
Mint leaves!
Or at least some greens?  
The fish was generously served though... 
I opted for ice kacang.... and forgotten to tell them not to put the ice cream...
It was kind of creamy towards the end... 
Lorong Selamat's version of cendol....
Our heavy breakfast cum lunch.... 
I think my girl will opt for other places the next time...

  3. RM9.50 now, eh? The ckt was RM8 when I went. Overrated, nothing sensational that is worth putting up with the crowd and the long wait. Can have the same or perhaps even nicer ckt, elsewhere. Just like our RM10 Sarawak laksa or our RM45 giant prawn noodles here - I never feel it is anything that great to be worth those prices...even with all those prawns.

  4. Sigh!!!...Nothing comes cheap these days. All in all the food looks good & I would opt for the kway teow tng though it looks abit oily. Dessert is a must too.

  5. RM9.50 for the fried noodle with 3 prawns! Over-priced I think.

    Ice kacang by itself is nice and cool enough. I would not want ice cream on top too.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...

I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
