Hainanese Food At Cathay Restaurant, Ipoh

BRUNCH DELIGHTS... with my friends, the three of us went to Cathay Restaurant again, this time we wanted to try out their chicken chop.  We decided to go after 10.30am so that my appetite cravings are stronger around that time.  LOL... I did not take anything for breakfast, except a glass of barley green.  So by the time we reached the place, I was famished by then.

We ordered two sets of chicken chop and one set of French toast, Hainanese styled.  While eating the chef came out to talk to us cos one of my friends mentioned he was from Teluk Intan.  And both of them started talking about history of the town, etc etc.... and the chef himself told us that he started cooking at the age of 12 and he has been cooking for 66 years.  Yes, he is almost 80 now and if we want authentic food, we better come more often before he really retires for good.  LOL... 
Their specialty French Toast was served first..... 
This cost around RM5.50 or so....
Two sets of chicken chops RM13.90 each.... 
Remember, this is a coffeeshop not a cafe... 
The presentation is like that... la... 
I like the taste of the chicken chop...
The sauce is a bit diluted... but overall, it is nice...
Since the cook was talking to us, we asked him for more choices of food... 
We ended up ordering Hainan noodles... RM5.50
It reminded me of noodles Arthur Wee used to post up... 
This might look unimpressive...
surprisingly the taste is much better than the looks of it...

  1. yummy hainanese chicken chop! the noodles look plain, but doesn't matter if it is tasty. RM5.50 for a plate of noodles is cheap.

  2. Not quite like our Foochow fried noodles but I bet it tastes good! Not crazy about Hainanese pork chop - will eat but give me really good Hainanese chicken rice anytime! I love their curry rice too!!!

  5. What is a Hainanese style French Toast? I had eaten Hainanese chicken chop before, does not really like it as the tomato sauce is too overpowering for me.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
