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.

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
