Foodie Explorers Strike Gopeng

IT WAS AN UNPLANNED TRIP THIS MORNING... I was thinking that I would have to "feed myself" today, no more outing as we did not plan anything the day before.

Was wondering what to eat for lunch when suddenly I heard "Ting" on the whatsApp... it was around 11am when the good news came... "Who wants to go Gopeng cos I need to do something there".... Quickly I put up the "hands up" icon in the apps... hahahahaha... 

And around 12 noon, I was picked up again and off we went to Gopeng, a half an hour drive from my house...


Retired Foodie Explorers Strikes to Gopeng....
We were aiming for this stall.... 
Heard that this stall has been operating for years... 
From father to son and now the son is almost 70 I guess.... 
Both brother and sister are manning the stall... 
Opens at 11 something... and sold out by 1pm!
We were kind of blessed... w
When we reached, he told my friend it was all finished..
Then suddenly he asked us how many bowls of porridge we wanted...
He must have done some "magic" and soon.... 
.....The food appeared on our table.... 
His special porridge.. it might be plain but the cooked with chicken broth...
*I suspected la....*
Wahhhhh... just look at this!!
The taste and all really reminded me of my childhood "steamed chicken"
Really Authentic la!!
We ordered two bowls of porridge and the chicken...
He only collected RM15 from us... 
We gave a WAHHH.... expression!
We also tried other stalls.... such as the Gopeng noodles.... 
With their signature "Fish Cake".... RM4.50
And not to be left out...
LAKSA!!
With some mighty balls... RM5
And I am blessed with the last bowl of Gingko Barley Fuchuk.... RM2...
Oh my Food!!
I mean OUR FOOD! 
And....
My Foodie Gang strikes again!

  2. You're on a food tour of the whole of Perak, is it? Aiyor...the porridge bowl so badly chipped already, shouldn't use anymore. I have steamed chicken too in my blogpost today, corn-fed, yellow colour. Nice!!! So tasty.

  5. I love porridge especially during this hot weather. The chicken portion is huge. All these for only RM15. That's a good deal.

  7. Is the signature "Fish Cake" a vegetarian fish cake? It looks quite unlike the normal fish cake.

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 …
