Best Johor Fish Ball Noodles At Lai Kee, Tun Aminah, Johor

FRESH FROM THE OVEN POST! My best taken noodles so far..... YUMMYLICIOUS!!

Just this morning we had a very nice and authentic breakfast at a shop in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah. Heard that this is a household name in Johor Bahru, operating since 1987 and still is as crowded as ever for three generations now.  Hmmmm... hope it will still be "handed down" for generations to come, very difficult to find this type of authentic and tasty food handed down from the fore-fathers. :)  Thanks to my in-laws, they brought us here this morning to have our tummies filled.

It is not surprising that we have to wait almost half an hour for our noodles to come.  Meanwhile they served us with crispy fish cake for sides.  There are two types of the crispy fish cake and we tried them both.  Slightly on the salty side if eaten just like that but together with the noodles, they blend in very well for the soupy broth was not salty at all.  As for the fish balls, they are handmade, comes out with different sizes, not snowy white as those sold on the shelves.  These handmade fish balls reminded me of my younger days' taste.... get what I mean?  Very rare to get these real fresh Ikan Parang fish balls nowadays..... everything seems to be so commercialized...

And the fish pancakes... 
When the noodles arrived half hour later, we had to order another round of "sidekicks"....
The second round of the sidekicks!

For 4 people, we actually ate around RM70 worth of fish!
Looks like we were a hungry lot... hmmmm.....

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

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
