Rubbish Chicken Among Others At Hooray Restaurant, Ipoh

ON ONE FINE EVENING, (cos I forgot which day already)  my foodie couple came to pick me up for dinner.  Knowing that I do not drive out during the dark, they came all the way from their house to pick me, it took them half and hour before we reached our place for Food which is at Hala Medan Lapangan 2, (Off Gopeng Road), Ipoh. 

Hooray!! Hooray!!  Hooray from me for bringing me along and the name of the shop is called Hooray!!  What a nice cute name... I was imagining something very western about the place... but no, the food is purely Asian.  A very simple corner shop which serves mixed rice during the day and ala carte dishes during the evenings.   Recommended by an ex-colleague, I was all eager to see what they served....

One young man came to take our order and we could not help ordering what he recommended... "Rubbish Chicken!"  Oh my goodness, what a name!  I am sure this dish will draw some hesitation, we were also taken aback... and curious at the same time. OK, Rubbish Chicken???   No problem, we were Game for it!
And so... the dish came out in a Claypot... 
Inside the pot, the Rubbish Chicken consisted of chicken, *of course*
cooked with tumeric, curry leaves, ginger.... etc. etc.. 
More or less my style of cooking... 
Everything dumped in and turned out pretty good!
If it is called Claypot chicken, the name does not sound astonishing, right?
However Rubbish Chicken will draw some attention!
Next came the young and fresh sweet potato leaves... 
Sizzling hot in a claypot too!
We super like!

Last and not least, this is the most appetizing of all....
Lots of picked onions on top and fried crispy meat beneath... 
Our three dishes for us three... 
Let's get busy now.... 
As for the bill, it came to a reasonable RM46 with rice and drinks.... 
And I'll say.... 
Hip, Hip Hurray!!

34, Hala Medan Lapangan 2, Ipoh. (off Gopeng Road).
Opens from 3 pm - 11 pm.

  1. The name of the chicken dish sounds weird. Out of so many nice name they can choose, why they opt for this name. Say hi to Nancy.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
