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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
