Seafood Dishes At Soo Hak Yee, Bercham, Ipoh

AT HIS SERVICE....

They arrived early morning at 10am, driving all the way from Johor at 4am in the morning.  Though the traffic was not heavy, the long drive still takes six hours to reach Ipoh.  I have not seen them for nearly two months, time really flies.  And the first thing they did when they arrived at the doorstep was to go for a good breakfast!  LOL...

After breakfast we went shopping for pomeloes and Ipoh famous biscuits... by then it was almost afternoon.  Told them to take a good rest before going for dinner.  There is one place I have planned to take them for dinner, it is called Soo Hak Yee in Bercham.  I have been there several times and the food was not bad though it was a bit pricey especially when it comes to Crabs!!
Wanted them to try this Freshly made giant bread...
3 choices of fillings... curry chicken, crabs or prawns...
We opted for crabs!
And here it goes... 
Inside the bread, there are two big crabs... 
This alone cost around RM170!
Sweet and Sour sauce goes well with the bread... 
Steamed 3 types of shells... 
Clams, Scallops and the long clams aka "Tarn" in cantonese...
And this cost RM32
And the cheapest is this yummy appetizing dish...
Eggplants with dried shrimps... RM12
And that was our dinner for the four of us....
Enough to fill us to the brim for the night!

  1. Oooooo...I so miss that curry in a bun. Don't think we can get it anywhere now, not anymore. Anyway, even if it is, the bread is not gluten free so we wouldn't be going for it.

  2. Thanks for this blog. I was not aware of the existence of this eatery. I think my dad and hubby would love the sweet and sour crabs.

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!

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

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...
