A Disappointment At Kuala Sepetang

OUT OF IPOH but into Taiping.  We stopped at Kuala Sepetang for lunch.  My kids had not been there before though I have been many times.  It was a weekend and to our surprise, the small fishing village was booming with people, tourists like us, I guess.  Wrong timing but no choice, they have to work from home during weekdays, only time off is weekend. 

Food was definitely not tasty at all during such peak hours.  We managed to get a place and ordered a few dishes.  But it was quite disappointing, the taste was not there and we even got shortchanged for the number of crabs.  We ordered 3 but when the dish was served, I counted and recounted, there were only 2 crabs cooked for us.  I sounded it to three servers and only the third one had a feedback for us.  He checked the bill, it was written three and was charged RM59.... and he told us to mention it at the cashier when we finished our food.
While waiting for the food, we looked at the murky waters...
And fishing boats....
The bustling crowd... got SOP in front... just scan and go... 
The mini size crabs... how not to go unnoticed...
Easily can see that there are not 3 here... 
The pomfret is fresh though... Rm36 for this...
Small shrimps deep fried but no tasty at all...
And some greens... nothing to shout about... 
Four dishes plus rice came to RM112...
The missing one crab were deducted RM20....
I guess we won't be going there again for a long long time...

  1. I guess everyone wants to go out after stay-at-home for about 4 months. I think better to avoid crowded places. Luckily you realized they served u two instead of 3 crabs and got rm20 deducted from the whole bill.

  4. ok la, at least they deducted RM20 for u on the missing crab. But it has spoil the reputation for being dishonest when serving dishes. Should not go there for the second time.

  5. Good thing you noticed and counted the crab and complained to the servers. Don't know whether it was intentional or unintentional. To avoid the crowd, it is better to go on weekdays but sometimes it is unavoidable.

  6. Actually, the food does not even look tasty. But good scenery while you ate.

  7. We have to audit our orders especially when the restaurant is busy, mistakes can happen. It is good they acknowledge the shortfall and compensated you. Hopefully you and your kids can visit at a better time.

  9. Good that you are observant to find out that there are only 2 crabs instead of 3 and they compensated you. That is the reason why my mom always insist hving homecooked food during cny for the same reason that quality will drop when it is crowded.

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

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....

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

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...
