Seafood At Tong Sheng Restaurant, Malacca

IT WAS ALMOST 6PM WHEN WE FINALLY REACHED HATTEN HOTEL after our fruitful trip to the durian plantations.  What a long and productive day! The day is not over yet, dinner was still pending, in another two hours, our host/hostess would be coming to pick us up for a scrumptious meal!  Quickly we freshened up and had a short rest in the hotel room.  Fingers were busy on touching the handphones to keep up with the daily emails and notifications.

Soon the two hours passed and we got ready and waited at the hotel lobby for our friends to fetch us for dinner.  We did not know what we had in store for we are not so familiar with Malacca food. Our friends were very punctual and we were whisked off to a restaurant called FATSO.  Upon reaching, the restaurant was closed... but no worries, we proceeded to another restaurant called Tong Sheng. Seems that these two restaurants are the famous ones in Malacca for their seafood...

This is how Tong Sheng looks like on a weekend... 
*taken from my son's phone during one weekend*
But on the day we went, the crowd was very much less... 
We got our table and seats within 15 minutes or so... 

Famous for their cheesy meehoon... 
I was expecting something milky but to my surprise, 

it was something like Wat Tan hor gravy but with a better fragrance... 
A-Must-Have dish in this restaurant... 
Otak Otak fried with eggs... 
Four types of bean... 
And one more green dish which I have overlooked, I guess...
Lastly and not least, the Crabs in cheesy sauce too... 
I do not normally take cheese but this sauce is Extremely Special 
The cheese was somehow "non existing"..
The gravy tasted like sweet, sourish with minimum spicyness... 
A plate of toasted bread to dip into the sauce... 
Super "omphh" I would say..... 
Ended up taking three big claws before calling it a stop... 
Again we were being blessed with such a scrumptious dinner!
Endless Thanks to both of you!!

  3. How much is that plate of prawn noodles? I guess it is one big prawn cut up but even so it is not going to be cheap if we have that here. Some places RM20, some RM30...the bigger, the more expensive. But I hear there are farmed ones now, sopposed to be cheaper...and the problem is we can never tell - they cheat us, we also don't know. :(

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 …
