The Lonely Crab At Crab House, Ipoh

MEETING UP...  Three of my friends from the Klang valley came up to Ipoh for a day trip.  Main purpose is to eat and buy till come what may! I only got to see them around 3pm cos I went up to Penang with my kids for the weekend.  We had to hurry back so that we could have dinner with my friends.  

By the time I saw them, my friends had already 3 meals in their tummies.  They went for the famous chicken koay teow in Pulau Sembilan shop, Hakka noodles along Jalan Iskandar Shah and a bit of this and that, endless food snacks in Ipoh.  Last destination was with me, asking me to book a table in The Crab House.  I made the reservation at 5.30pm without giving my name, not sure my fault or the restaurant's fault cos she never asked!  

Reached there at the exact timing and the staff kept asking me for name... alamak!  Obviously, the lady who spoke to me did not write anything and after some ding-dong from this table to that table, we finally had a place cos the next diners would be coming at 7.30pm.  That means we have to shoot off before that time.... and in the midst of ordering, we were only given ONE crab to be shared among the 5 of us!  Why only ONE miserable crab...... ???  We did not ask the fella, no point, it was served already... obviously, with one crab, we could vacate our seats earlier... if more crabs, we would be taking a longer time to enjoy and that would defeat their purpose.

Since my friends were not that hungry, we just ordered these..... 
Appetizing dish.... 
Okra with 4 angles beans plus sotong/squid... .
Sourish plus sweet... 
Next comes the beancurd... 
Impressive presentation.... 
Followed by fried rice... 
Not bad.. got the Wok Hei fragrance.... 
And lastly, the Lonely Crab... 
Quite big but definitely not enough for 5 people!
I just took a claw... fresh flesh... 
Left us craving for more...
But when we saw the bill, it was RM207....
Should we come back again?
One crab itself was around RM120,,,
Well.... what can we say..
After all, it is The Crab House...

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
