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.

  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.

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....

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...
