Trying Out Indonesian Dishes At This Dish, Ipoh

TRYING OUT NEW PLACE...  The six of us went to a new place to try out their Indonesian dishes for dinner yesterday.  Actually it is not a new place, just that a new owner has taken over and changed the name of the restaurant, I guess, cos formerly it was also a cafe with a different name.  I asked the staff and he said that this time instead of just western food, they added in Indonesian cuisine as well.  That was what interest us to go.... 

After said that, the place is called This Dish... not sure why the name is just like that... This Dish and the dishes we ordered to try are as follows:

Tomyam fried rice... 
Not spicy at all and just two to three prawns were noticeable... 
We also shared a plate of Fried Meehoon.... 
6 sticks of Satay RM12
Eggplant with two different types of Sambal toppings... 
BBQ chicken... we like the sauce called Cobek.. a bit sweet and spicy... 
Wild ferns... Paku Pakis...
And their Signature Fried Crispy Fish Talapia... 
And the bill came to around RM136.... 
We were not full to the brim and we went to a hawker centre for our second round! 
Sad to say we were the only patrons from the time we entered and left the restaurant...

  2. Portion not enough for 6 since they were shared around. I like Indonesian cuisine. The eggplant with sambal topping looked tempting.

  7. I love Indonesian food. There was a restaurant in KLCC called House of Sundanese Food. That's where I had crispy fish and they make it standing like that.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
