Ipoh Hainan Chicken Rice

IPOH... Back to where I belong after being away for few months.... 

Spent a few days trying to settle my "mind" back to the current time, have been waking up at odd hours during the night to watch TV and then dozing off again during the early dawn... During the day, I felt like a zombie and did not have much appetite.  My sister followed me back this time and we had each other to keep company with during these "jetlag" moments.  

Anyway, we become "normal" again and spent the first few days in Ipoh hunting food and cravings.  There is this place which I have not been before, near the Desserts street... oh dear, I forgot to see the actual name of the restaurant.  My bad.. I tried googling for it but to no avail.  Will try to pass by the shop again to get the name one of these days..... 
We had half a chicken for the three of us.... 
Glass chicken feet... direct translation from Cantonese.... 
Long time I did not eat these... 
Sweet, sourish and spicy due to the chillies...



And fried eggplants which was done perfectly... 
Tasted like banana fritters.. LOL... 
Nice lunch which cost around RM70 for the 3 of us... 
And the jet-lag faces then.... 
*Now I am back to normal*

  3. Maybe you can go google maps and walk around to see the shops, you may see the name. I dropped by your house once but nobody was home. LOL!!!

    I guess you had people taking care of your house while you were away, doing the cleaning and maintaining and everything. Otherwise, it would be such a chore coming back after being away for so so so long...and so many things waiting to be done.

  6. I believe it's Restoran Hainam in Jalan Mustapha al Bakri. Unmistakable red table cloth. A bit pricey but air conditioned. Recently renovated. Been there a few time.

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
