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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
