Yearning For Ipoh Food In San Jose

FOOD MADE FROM SCRATCH...

No going out to hawker stalls or restaurants to get these type of food which I have cravings for.  Whatever we want to eat, we have to make from scratch and that is when I learn how to cook.  The two ladies in the house ended up making trial-n-error dishes.  With the baby taken care of by the male, the young lady and the senior one spent some time bonding in the cool kitchen.  Yes, one thing good about cooking here is that the weather is cool enough, unlike in my own kitchen in Ipoh, I would be sweating left and right.  LOL.... 

Here are some of the dishes for our own satisfaction and cravings.... 
*Lots to learn about presentation though.... we have to minimize washing-up, so we did not care too much about the decoration... Big wok on the table is a normal sight during meal times!*

Our cravings for Chicken Koay Teow.... 
This one is Hokkien prawn noodles... 
Forgot to put in some greens...
No Kangkung here but we use spinach....
Steamed a big fish which we had to cut into half....
We don't have a big steamer/wok/plate... 
Sweet and sour chicken taken straight from the stove... LOL...
Most of the time two dishes are sufficient plus leftovers...
Another two dishes with a leftover from previous day...
And a Western dish now and then....

  3. The dishes all look so good you can open a restaurant there selling Ipoh delights. The chicken kway teow makes me drool.

  4. good that you can buy most of the ingredients over there. I guess cooking at home is much cheaper that eating out there.

  6. I think the chicken kway teow looked good. More like prawns kway teow with the big prawns!! Lol.

    When one craving for hometown food, I guess it is good idea to cook from scratch. Definitely hard to find there or even have, it wouldn't be cheap.

DESSERTS OVER... THE MAIN MEAL CAME... It should be the other way round but knowing us, desserts would go to waste after this main meal.  So...
