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!


  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.

    1. This one is not called Taiwanese.. but ah Mah's. hahahaa..

  2. The cake not sweet is good for me. In photo 1, the hakka noodles look translucent. Is it translucent?

    1. No, not really but it is softer than the ones I ate elsewhere..

  3. I have yet to try the cake as I see Q's, perhaps wait a while, maybe no Q liao then I go buy try it out...

  4. Oh, I have not been to this Hakka me stall. Looks yummy, but then again I may be prejudiced coz I love all Hakka mee...heheheh!

  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

  6. This cake looks delightful, and very light! It looks like what we call Angel Food Cake here.

    1. Oh really.. I would love to try the next time..

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

  8. Our favourite Hakka noodle stall! I have yet to try the sponge cake.

  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.

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
