Xin Seafood Village At Kuala Sepetang

DAY OUTING.... To the valleys, Kuala Sepetang and Taiping town. 

Started off the one hour journey without breakfast in Ipoh, leaving more space in our tummies for food in Kuala Sepetang.  Just a glass of fresh fruit juice in the morning and off we went.  Drove one round in Taiping town and then it was almost 11am.  By then my stomach was already calling for "Food, food... please" ... and from Taiping, another 15 minutes drive to Kuala Sepetang.  

Stopped at a fish village to get some of dried seafood stuff.... four of us ended up buying a few packets each.... and from there, we walked to the nearby open air Xin seafood restaurant facing the river bay.  We ordered a few dishes including crabs and I was surprised that the price was quite reasonable... 
This is Kuala Sepetang, a small fishing village near Taiping...
The dried stuff being dried under the hot sun... 
Salted fish in making.... 
I like to eat salted fish but have not done so for a long time already
after hearing and reading so much about them.... 
And from Xin restaurant, the fishing village could be seen.... 
Fishing boats at dock.... 
Very patriotic too... 
As for the food....
Fried prawns... 
Sambal Kangkung....
Oyster omelette....
Cuttlefish with dried chillies... 
Noodles for two but it came out in such a big portion... 
Steamed crabs... 
Halfway through the meal.... 
Yes, mostly are leftovers... they are not wasted though... 
We finished the crabs but not the rest.... 
The remainder were taken back for dinner.... 
Meal above cost around RM118...
We eat, we buy.... and soon... 
Bye Bye!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
