Homecooked Style Dishes At Sin Hup Kee Restaurant @ Ipoh

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I last went to Sin Hup Kee restaurant along Jalan Leong Sin Nam... This place was a frequent joint for my kids when they were very young and ever since they left Ipoh, we did not go there anymore.  Never thought of this place when they come back for their holidays mainly because there is not enough time to cover the food joints. LOL...

When my sister suggested going here for our dinner one fine evening, I was all for it.... If we want fast service, it is wiser to reach there around 6pm... and that was exactly what we did.... true enough, there were just a few tables occupied and by the time we finished our dinner, the tables were almost occupied in this double shophouse restaurant.  Their dishes are more like homecooked food at its simplest form...
Only three of us but we ordered four dishes!
How about that..... hmmmmm...

Their signature chicken in their special sauce.... 
Yes, the dishes came in small portion since there were only three of us... 
Looks like roti canai with egg.... 
This one with added minced meat... 
The young fresh sweet potato leaves.... 
And the appetizing Assam Stingray Curry... 
Yes, it is indeed very appetizing.... with lots of greens too...
And a Happy Face to say it all... 
Bill came to around RM55 or so with rice and drinks...

  6. The food looked good.

    I can't remember if I ever had sweet potato leaves. Does it taste like local spinach?

    Stingray was not popular with Chinese in Kuching so I was told but I cannot verify if there was any truth in it. I guess it is not a cheap fish when eating out.

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

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

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...
