From Ah Meng To San Lou, Taman Iskandar, Johor

INITIAL PLAN WAS TO GO TO AH MENG restaurant at Taman Iskandar, Johor... but to our disappointment, it was closed!  Since we were around that vicinity and wanted to eat our "Smack Noodles" desperately, we opted for the second choice.  The shop is called San Lou in Taman Pelangi, it serves almost the same food as in Ah Meng, we were told.  No problem with me, as long as I get to eat my "Dessert!"

San Lou was crowded by the time we reached there... almost 8pm plus....
 Waiting patiently.. by then our tummies were "growling".....
We had crispy fried squids....
Crispy Fried Chicken with Lam Yue...
Didn't know why we ordered two fried stuff same time!
Johor's Otak Otak... very nice!
Loh Hon Chye....
Noodles in egg gravy....
And this is what we called Smack Noodles....
They are like being smacked flat!
And of course, the highlight of the dinner is... OR NEE!
The one I have been yearning for....
Sweet Dessert made of yam, pumpkin and gingko!
My favourite!
Too bad Ipoh does not have this...
*Or perhaps it is a better thing that Ipoh does not have!*
Okay, easy does it...
Mama wants a Bigger portion please....
Thank You!


  1. I loves the otah, the supermarket here got sell otah, something like the one you eat, i ever buy, buy inside the fridge, when want to eat it, steam it...

  2. The fried squids and nam yue chicken look so so good, I can munch munch munch non stop.. Never heard of or nee, but I think I've seen it in STP's post.. Sweet sticky dessert, yummzzz..

    1. Next time I must see you eat... very hoi wai!

  3. Hahaha

    Mommy wants a big portion ya. ;)

  4. We have the yam - or nee but not served with pumpkin and whatever else like that. Love it! Can even buy at the pasar malam here, I think. My girl would love the deep fried quids. Otak-otak looks good.

    1. Wahhh.. so nice.. can buy in pasar malam.. I cannot see any or nee in Ipoh...

  5. All looks so good. The smacked noodles looks like bihun. I personally love the or nee & noodles in egg gravy.

    1. Yes, they are bihun... they smacked them flat... hahaaa

  6. Or nee is a JB delicacy, I think you can find it in many restaurants lah, as long as you are not that specific. :P

    1. Fook Chau dessert, if not mistaken... so each time I go, I try to taste them...

  7. Or Nee is available in KL too. Does your Or Nee taste of lard? The ones I have eaten taste of lard so I don't quite like it. The "Smack Noodles" look like glass noodles.

    1. Oh.. didnt taste any lard... but i know it is not healthy... eat once a blue moon ok right? :) Smack noodles is mihoon...

  8. I didn;t know Or Nee is available in KL. I guess I would love that combination of yam, pumpkin and gingko. I wonder whether you live in JB or Ipoh now?

    1. Both places.. hahahaa.. if possible!

    2. TM, you can get Or Nee (individual serving) in Putien Restaurant in One Utama.

  9. I will eat everything except the or nee. Somehow, don't quite like it hee..hee...

  10. Claire, now you are covering the southern area food too. I tasted or nee but I find it hard to accept the texture.

  11. Every thing is yummy to me but I have not tasted Or Nee.

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 …
