Koh Kee At Concubine Lane Ipoh

STARTED OFF MY TUESDAY WITH A GOOD MEAL in Old Town Concubine Lane, Ipoh.  I wanted to buy some stuff from the wholesale shops in old town so might as well my friend and I have our breakfast cum lunch there for it was almost 11am by the time we parked our car.  Initially we wanted to take the Gopeng wanton noodles but it was temporarily closed till 13 March.  Then we proceeded to the Golden Fried Noodles but it was closed too... Oh dear... what I was yearning to eat this morning was not meant-to-be.

By then my friend was complaining already... "Very hungry ah... quick, just eat anywhere.... "  For me, I cannot just eat anywhere, the food must be NICE otherwise it would be like wasting my stomach space... LOL.... At the same time, I wouldn't want to see my friend "faint" from hunger and the next shop that came to my mind was KOH KEE, a very traditional Chinese style of "Chu Char" situated at the now-famous Concubine Lane.  Heard that this shop is close to eight decades, not surprising, it has been there when I was a little girl... OK, little girl means I have been eating here since the 1970s...
This is how the shop looks like from the place I was sitting... 
Everything is the same except that it has been repaired and repainted... 
The design is still the same.... very traditional-like.... 
This is the best time to be here at this shop.. 11-12pm... 
Any time later than that, be prepared to wait outside... 
We ordered three dishes.... since my friend was so hungry by then...
I am afraid she might just "faint" there and then... LOL... 
Steamed fish with ginger...
3 yolks eggs, chicken, century and salted eggs plus a dash of minced meat as toppings... 
And Ipoh's springy and crunchy bean sprouts with crispy anchoives..... 
For the three dishes with 2 bowls of rice and tea, the bill came to RM33....
Now I know why the crowd is always there... and the shop is sustaining till today...
There are many more signature dishes to enjoy.. 
Must arrange a bigger crowd to taste more dishes the next time!
LOL....

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
