Dinner At Din Tai Fung Restaurant, Westfield, San Jose

THE WAITING GAME.... Dining out especially during Fridays and weekends is no joke.  Even after making reservations, we need to wait for two and a half hours to get a table.  We reached the Westfield mall around 4pm and the estimated time for our dinner is around 6pm... after walking two hours in the mall, finishing two cups of Cold Stone, we still have to wait for 10 more people in front of us. 

Oh, we did not have to queue up of course, they will send a text to my son's handphone.  After being said and done, how come I did not mention the name of the restaurant???  LOL... The long wait was from Din Tai Fung, a Taiwanese restaurant which has made its way to this part of the world as well.  I know there have branches in certain states in Malaysia but not Ipoh.... I have tried a few times but nothing like this long wait ever before.... 

Outside Din Tai Fung...
Going to our turn anytime soon....
Mostly Asians... many come to pick up as well....
And we joined in the crowd.... 
keeping certain distance away....
Famous for their Siew Loong Pau... 
Beef noodles was tasty too!
Fried rice with chicken chop....
And Spicy Wanton.... 
Nope, we did not manage to finish them all....
Doggie bag fried rice and two of these for the next day.... 
How much?
I think it came to around $60...
Don't convert and it is definitely cheaper!

  2. Oh? They have Din Tai Fung there too? Bet the prices would be similar to outlets in KL before conversion. RM60 is cheap! LOL!!!

    Wowwwww!!!! Standing in a long queue with a baby is no joke! I would have gone some place else. Your grandson must be a very good boy, did not make noise.

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
