My Two Best Chee Cheong Fun In Ipoh

I AM SITTING AT HOME QUIETLY... arranging my favourite album called Food and these pictures below were taken recently.  This post will be all on Chee Cheong Fun in Cantonese, won't be translating them in English for fear that they would sound a bit gross to some and might have some adverse effects on the CCF business.  LOL...

From my younger days, there were mobile vehicles selling food and most of them of them would be stationed at an area for a couple of minutes before moving on.  I grow up eating CCF bought from a back lane, the man with the four wheel bicycle would come regularly at a certain time in the afternoon.  Miss the good old days when everything was so easily accessible....

Nowadays, we have to drive around to look for food and one afternoon, we went all the way to Kanthan, more than half an hour from Ipoh to take our lunch.... and one of the choices sold there was this Chee Cheong Fun with the following garnishing....
This is CCF with the Oink Skin, Long Beans Curry... 
I did not touch that.... too "fattening" for me though I was salivating... 
This is called Anson CCF.. taken in Kampar Road Yee Lock.... 
To me, ok ok only nia... 
Recently I went to taste this CCF in Bercham Woong  Kee... 
I shared with my sister.... 
Not too bad but a bit too much for me to eat them all.... 
The best is still the one in Canning Garden corner shop, just opposite the market... 
Known for his grumpiness no doubt but nevertheless the business is still soaring... 
Another compatible CCF is found in Pasir Pinji 5... 
Ask for a number upon entering the premises and Do remember it... 
Otherwise will wait for hours if one does not remember...
Be prepared to wait at least half hour... 
So must remember to order L size for the CCF...
Otherwise not worth the Long Wait!
LOL....

  5. I love to eat ccf and will eat the long bean in curry ccf. The oink skins are dried ones so are not fatty so no harm eating them once in a while.

    2. If you have time you may consider reading the cholesterol myth book. Some scientific articles say dried oink skin does not contribute cholesterol to humans.

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 …
