Dinner For 10 At Weng Kee Restaurant, Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

FOOD MARATHON CONTINUES DURING THE FIRST WEEK CHINESE NEW YEAR...

I was very undecided of which restaurant to go to on one evening and I ended up making  a booking with three restaurants two days in advance and on the day itself, I had to cancel two of them.  Three of the restaurants I booked are Kok Thai, Pavilion and Weng Kee, all around the same vicinity of Ipoh Garden East and South.  Finally I settled for Weng Kee restaurant, it has been a long while since I have been there and when I messaged my girl about the choice of venue, she replied with a "Hurray" ... With that word, I know that I have made the right decision.  Sons?  Oh, they are not picky eaters as me and my girl.  Anything is fine with them... LOL....  

There were 10 of us for that evening dinner and we ordered 7 dishes....
The happy and "close eye"  smiles from the 10 of us.... 

Their signature Pork Ribs minus the bones... 
Kapitan chicken
Mixed vegetables...
Their signature dish again.. Ownmade Beancurd..
Yummy steamed yam with lard...
Recently read an article that lard is good for us.... 
True or not?
Claypot eggplant with fish paste... 
And the highlight of the dinner is the Buttered Fish... crispy fried...
That's her favourite and she ate most of it!
The  dinner came to RM215 inclusive of rice and drinks....
After our dinner, we adjourned for our desserts!!
A real fattening evening, no doubt about that..

  5. Not sure how good lard is but when compared with trans fat, eating lard is better than eating trans fat. Buttered fish is my pick too out of all the dishes because I prefer fish to chicken and pork.

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

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

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
