Hot Porridge At Hock Kee, Ipoh On A Cold Night

BACK TO IPOH.. we did not have time to cook and since it was a cooling evening, we went for hot porridge!  This is my second time eating at Hock Kee Teochew Porridge Restaurant.  Surprisingly, the place was almost occupied when we reached there around 7pm even though it was a weekday.  The first time I went, the place was quite empty... it must be getting quite popular as time goes by.  Good for them!

I remember the last time I came here,  I saw one table ordering claypot fish.. it looks kind of special so this round, I ordered out of curiosity... 
It came out something like this.... kind of "gelish" with the white dot there... 
Other than that, taste was alright... 
If I were to do it at home, I would do it differently... (minus the dot)

Ordered this too.... eat when it is hot... 
Salted fish minced meat beancurd which enhances the taste... 
Three dishes cost around RM50 with porridge and drinks.... 
The night was still young... and cold
But that did not deter us from getting two scoops for Baskin Robbins at Jaya Jusco...
Now... the night is complete...

  1. That's a tilapia, the white dot is the eye, isn't it? I love bitter gourd omelette.

  2. I heard that teochew porridge is porridge served with small dishes right? We have it here in Kuching.

  6. I must admit that I have been a stupid client who loves BR ice cream for many years. Their monthly promo on the 31st is silly to deceive naive people like me where they only allow take-aways to enjoy the big discounts. I always had to pay normal "fool" price on 31st because I wanted to enjoy the ice cream right away. When I sat down to eat, i noticed all the youngsters eating away their take-aways happily at the table. WTH!! So next time I will do the same. LOLOL

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...
