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.

  9. We always order their kapitan chicken whenever we go there....always! Looking at your pics, we should try their other dishes like the buttered fish too. Their sweet and sour crabs are excellent too!

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
