Foodie Trip To Sauk, Kuala Kangsar

WOKE UP EARLY WITH SOME EXCITEMENT IN MIND... Are we going to Sauk this morning?  I was not so sure cos the night before my friend did not confirm it was a Yes or No and after a few messages left unanswered on the handphone, I went to sleep.  And the very first thing I did when I opened my eyes this morning was to check the whatsApp... and to my delight, my friend said Yes, going!  Quickly I jumped up from bed... ouchhhhh.... forgot about my "recuperating" leg....

At around 10am, my friends came and I deposited myself at the back seat of the car with a gleeful smile... A light breakfast was served in the car... my friends are very thoughtful one.. they really take good care of me!  They said I am a "See Tau Por" sitting all by myself at the back seat with my leg up on the seat... hehehehe... Well, still in "disabled" mode..... 

So off we go... Sauk... a small little town in Kuala Kangsar and one can pass Sauk if they are going to Lenggong, Gerik or Betong... It is around one hour drive from Ipoh, depending on how fast one drives... my friend is more or less a Formula 1 driver... hahahaha....
And after an hour we reached our destination....
My first time visiting this town.... 
My friend is so gracious... she took us one round to see the town... 
Before we finally landed in this shop  Lau Kai Ikan Sungai Restaurant.... 
There are a few shops selling seafood as we cruised along...
But little did I know my friend had made a reservation with this shop before she came.. 
Dishes to choose from.... 
And we had a hard time ordering what we wanted...
Eventually we had what the Lady Boss suggested.... 
Saito Fish Balls... 
Two versions.. Steamed and Fried...
My Preference... it cost 60 sen for each... 
Fresh prawns.... steamed...
Presentation is definitely not there... no ginger, no coriander leaves.... 
hmmmmm.....
The green recommended was good... fresh and crunchy.... 
And our fourth dish is the steamed fish... 
Saito Fish... cut piece by piece... 

The sauce went well with our white rice.... and it was very appetizing... 
But the portion was quite small... just enough for three small eaters such as us...
ahemmmm..... 
But the bill was not too small though.. 
It came to around RM118...
First customers of the day... 
Mingling with the Lady Boss and her kids...

  2. This restaurant must be very famous for its food to charge a high price for them but of course the big prawns are very expensive. Though I like to eat fresh prawns but I am very lazy to peel them so would rather not eat them, hahahaha, laziness win over gluttony. ;p

  3. Right behind the Chinese arch, a mosque - very 1Malaysia, eh?

    The sauce in the steamed fish dish looks like something I would enjoy. Fresh prawns, or for that matter, seafood of any kind, do not need any garnishing - sweet enough on its own so if it is for the sake of presentation, no need lah.

  4. Like I always say, you are truly blessed to have such caring friends. Food looks good & I love anything with sauce/gravy. Drown my rice with it & I can finish it in a jiffy.

  8. Quite pricey due to the prawns and fish. But since they were fresh and good, worth the price lah.

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
