Dinner At Mokuren And Desserts At Kinta City, Ipoh

BACK IN IPOH... Really nice to be home after a couple of weeks away.... This time I must be a good girl and stay put here till something bugs me again!  LOL...

Back to homecooking too on most evenings... but on this particular evening, we felt like eating something different and special for a change.  It has been raining on most evening and on this particular rainy day, I was craving for some Japanese food and Mokuren came to my mind... Quickly I made the reservation through the phone for two and we reached there before 6pm.  Yes, have to make reservations otherwise might feel dejected if it is full.  Saw a few customers who walked in after us were told that the tables were reserved... hmmm.. Food must be pretty good here...
Hot green tea on a rainy evening.... 
Then I sat back and let my girl do all the ordering... 
Since we were the first customers, our food came out real fast.... 
Our Big Bowl of Seafood salad... 
Anyone squeamish looking at this dish?
Don't be... it is a well blend combination with all the sauce and vegetables... 
Very nice one.. 
Me also first time taking this.... and it cost around RM25
Cucumber rolls with Salmon and something good in there... RM20 or so..
I could finish this plate all by myself! 
My girl also ordered some soft crab sushi rolls... 
Not bad too... price is around RM20 plus.. cannot remember already..
Thought of ordering another bowl of fried rice.... quite hesitant... 
In the end, we did not... cos I have something else in mind!
We went for our desserts at Baskin Robbins... 
Glad we did cos they have promotion... 
Buy one at regular price 
and the second one is RM3.10 only... 
Independence Day Promotion so it seems...
And finally the evening meal is fully completed!

  9. The cucumber and salmon rolls look the best to me, a very lovely place to eat. We have quite a few Baskin Robbins in the area.

  10. Presentation looks kinda messy - usually at these Japanese places, their presentation is top class, so artistic and creative. I love Baskin' Robbins!

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

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
