Lai Kee Fish Ball Noodles, Tun Aminah, Johor

FROM THE NORTH BACK TO IPOH... Rested a night in Ipoh and the very next morning, we were on the roads again, this time to the very south of Malaysia... After our quick breakfast, we started out our long journey around 10am.

In our small trusted car, we drove six hours almost continuously, only stopping to go to the restroom and to change seats in the car.  She drove most of the way in fact, I only drove from Rawang to Seremban, a hour plus stretch but I was on Full Alert even though I was not driving.

Reached Johor around 4pm, I was hungry by then, ended up buying a packet of nasi kandar before checking in to our small little home.  Dinner was simple, we went to a nearby food court for wanton noodles.  Had a good early rest and the next morning, we were in full blast again.  We went to Tun Aminah Lai Kee for the fish ball noodles.... it is my second time there.
Each bowl of noodles came in with the standard set like this.... 
Waited more than half an hour... 
This shop is really crowded... 
While waiting, we can "attack" these crispy beancurd skin with fish paste... 
And these too....
An extra bowl for satisfaction... for the 4 of us... 
For two bowls of noodles plus the side dishes, it came to RM52 with drinks!
My girl opted for Lui Char... very nice, she said... 
Comes with a bowl of mint soup... RM6
That was for morning breakfast cum lunch, a 2 in 1 meal...
A big meal like that naturally will last us till dinner...
Johor, we are back again!

  6. Lei char RM8.00 here at Payung...but it's a classier cafe, not a coffee shop. Nice! I love fresh own-made fish balls, non-fried, love them in soup!

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
