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.

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 …
