Malaysian Flavours With Uncle Pou Wok, Johor

WE RESTED FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS after our return from our one day trip in Singapore... *let the driver rest first* ... then only we went out for a simple dinner at Uncle Pou Wok.  Using Waze, we managed to find the place, actually it was our second time there, the first time was a two years back.  Upon reaching, the place was pretty crowded and we had to sit on the parking bay outside the shop.  Actually I rather sit inside the shop, away from the pollution... *kiasu mode*.... Ok, let's not be so particular....
Pou Wok is famous for their Hokkien Noodles aka Tai Lok Mee...
A very Lardy Dish!
Salted Egg Bitter Gourd.... 
Braised Yong Tow Foo... 
And a Small Size Yue Tau Lou aka "Fish Head Soup" with lots of goodies inside... 
Food for four.... 
See... we were "parked" on the road... haizzz.... 
This is Malaysian Flavours!


  1. So was this an outdoor stand? Must be very popular.Your photos are super good today, up close and sharp! Like the food is right here.

    1. Oh, I thought the pictures were a bit blurred here... :)

  2. I wouldn't want to go for steamboat in an non-air conditioned place...unless it is in the Cameron Highlands. So hot here!

    1. It is not really steamboat... just a hot pot soup... nothing added individually..

  3. Quite normal right for some restaurants to put their tables outside on the pavement to accommodate more customers. I would be sweating buckets sitting outside eating steamboat.

    1. hahaha.. yeah, but it is just hot soup with all the ingredients already...

  4. If it's windy, I am ok, if hot weather, eating steamboat outside, I will be sweating...

  5. I like eating by the roadside! Hahaha

  6. I prefer air con place. If sitting outside without air con or fan, I will have to take a big handkerchief to wipe my sweat. Or else the sweat will add flavour to the food! Ha ha.

  7. I would not mind eating outside but then again, pollution is the concern.

    Hokkien noodle. My least favourite because it is a messy noodle to take. The black sauce and mess. Haha. Reminded me of my Jay. He is a messy eater and one night he had Hokkien noodle. Black mess all over his mouth. Haha.

    1. Agreed! Seldom eat this tai lok mee but then it is famous here so try to find out..

  8. This Salted Egg Bitter Gourd is such a unique dish and I would love it.
    I always have to eat my Hokkien Noodle fix at KL's best shop in Damansara Utama. Eat now and worry later is my style.

  9. I rather sit inside the shop too.

  10. i also do not want to sit outside. would rather not eat there. lardy noodle? don't like the deep fried lard pieces so will pick them out, lol!

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 …
