Hakka Noodles At MXII and Traditional Homemade Cake, Ipoh

BREAKFAST IS OUR FAVOURITE MEAL OF THE DAY... this is the time when we can eat to our heart's content especially in the early morning or brunch, should I say...  Each morning both of us will ask each other, "What to eat?  Where to go?"  And for this particular morning we wanted Hakka noodles in town.  The place is called MXII at Osborne Street, Ipoh... they serve Hakka noodles during the day and one of the best Wantan Koayteow at night.  Usual wait will be 15 minutes or more depending on the time and the season.

For this morning we waited the usual 15 minutes or so for our Hakka noodles to be served....
The presentation of the Hakka noodles here... 
Fat crunchy bean sprouts from Ipoh looks like that... 
I like the texture of this noodles, softer and springier... compared to others... 
I must have picked 10 of these mixed pork fish balls....
My girl took these.... 
And as usual, I could not remember how much it cost... RM14? RM12?  
Really no idea...
Anyway, after our brunch, we went to look for the traditional 
Homemade Egg Sponge Cake...
Heard there is one shop open in town.... 
Yeah, we found it! 
Ah Mah's taste of happiness, it says... 
It is along Clare street aka Mustapha Al'Bakri now... 
That is the shop... 
One man show.... 
We bought one original flavour to try...
Big like this for RM13... 
As soft as the one in Gurney Plaza, Penang...
Only that it is not as sweet and the egg fragrant is not as strong.... 
Since it is not so sweet, I ended up taking a few pieces in one day!
LOL...

  1. The mixed pork meatballs. I love that. Sometimes I will have that too for my breakfast over the weekend.

    The traditional egg sponge cake. Reminded me of the Taiwan cake my hubby bought last week. Not that nice. I think yours look and taste nicer.

  5. I also tried the sponge cake (Original Cake) at City Square. I bought the golden cheese flavour at RM20, I also found it not as sweet, would prefer it to be sweeter

  7. As they say, eat more at breakfast and less during dinner. But I always do opposite!

  9. Not liked by many, that Taiwanese egg cake - over-rated, very expensive and nothing spectacular. At least, yours did not have air holes in it - I see that a lot in the photos that others shared. Fail big time!

  10. I am drooling at the soft cake now. It goes well with my coffee.

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 here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
