A Nameless Place In Taman Perkaka, Penang

GOING TO GET SOME "FIRING" FROM WHOEVER ASKING FOR THE NAME OF THIS SHOP...  Yes, I am the one who will get fired.... for I forgot to look at the name of the shop.... Too hungry perhaps.. Or too hasty to go off after dinner... Whatever it is, Hopefully someone can tell me the name....

Having said that, my post begins with this....

Having nothing much to do in Ipoh, I drove up north for a short vacation in Penang.... the weather was cloudy but fine, no rain and upon reaching, I went for lunch at Little Genting in Green Lane....
Hokkien mee in Penang aka Prawn noodles in Ipoh...
It was too spicy for me, don't judge the mini size chili on the spoon... 
It burns!
One coconut was definitely not enough.... 
Fast forward, it was evening... time to go for dinner ....
We went to a shop in Taman Perkaka....
All I can say is that it is a corner shop just behind Subaidah Restaurant.... 
Never thought of looking at the name of the shop...
But the food was not bad....
And we had these four dishes.... scrumptious meal which cost around RM65
plus rice and drinks.... 
 Hot Leafy spinach soup....
Sweet and sour pork....
These look and tasted special...
They are beancurd balls cooked with some curry leaves and salted eggs....
And Fish cooked in Nyonya style 
Here is a glimpse of the shop... 
Just too bad I couldn't remember to take the name of the shop...
Hope someone can enlighten me...
It is just opposite the Wong Chao Restaurant in Taman Perkaka....
             
                
Our dinner did not end right there....
We took a drive to another place....
For some bittersweet experience!

  4. I don't know the place but the beancurd balls cooked with some curry leaves and salted egg sure look tasty. I know where Wong Chao Restaurant in Taman Perkaka so the next time I go to Penang maybe I will look for this restaurant.

  6. "The corner shop just behind Subaidah" is an appropriate Penangite restaurant name hahaha. Usually it is the actual name of the place that people won't know :P

    But ar... I don't think I've been to this one before. Maybe that's why I don't know. "Zhu char" in that area (Sg Dua), usually I will go to Kim Hin, it is located beside a motorbike shack between Tesco Extra and that row of shops with Pizza Hut and McD. But we don't call it Kim Hin, we will say "Let's go to Paul's", because Paul is the guy who sell drinks there.

    Also there's a pretty nice place on the same row as Sg Nibong Public Bank. Don't know the name also, we call it "fu kua chao dan" (bitter gourd fried egg) because they do that dish very well there.

    And ah, the dim sum shop at Elit, they do dishes at night too, pretty decent too with air-cond.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
