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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
