Chai Leng Park 煮炒

I’ve been lazy to blog, perhaps I’ve got this ‘lazy bug’ in me.

Anyway, I’ve been even lazy scout around for food and review too. I wonder what’s wrong with me. Anyway, this is one of those post that lying around in my draft box for ages, guess it’s time to publish now.

Well, Chai Leng Park is a place where you can see lots of people, people are busy buying food from the market in the morning, or at night busy looking for food to fill up their stomach.

Whenever am home, if mom decided not to cook. We’ll just hop into any of the coffee shop that have one of those ‘Chu Char’ (煮炒). Nothing fantastic, but honestly it’s kind of convenient for those people that staying surrounding this area.
That night, we have one curry fish head. Nothing to shout about, it wasn’t spicy nor aromatic scented.
A plate of stir fry vegetables. Simple, yet full of ‘wok hei’ (鑊氣).
A plate of paddy frogs stirs fry with spring onion and gingers (薑蔥田雞). This is honestly thumbed up for this dish. It’s tasty, it’s good!!
And, a Guinness Stout Pork Ribs (黑啤排骨). Not many can make this dish as tasty as this. I’ve been trying many places that offer Guinness Stout ribs or chicken. But none of those places that could cook such a good one like this.
In fact, apart from the curry fish head, majority of the food that we’ve ordered for the night, isn’t that bad at all. As for the damage, honestly can’t recall… cuz, this was way some time ago.

Tiger Koay Teow Th'ng 亞虎粿條湯

You know it’s kind of frustrating when you need to eat something yet you do not know what to have, and if you have the money of course, you will lavishly spend on it, otherwise, you will be thinking what to eat, what to eat.

Anyway, we were running out of idea what to have for breakfast one of the weekends, and also wonder where to go for breakfast, or where to have breakfast which is nearer to the destination where you need to run some errands. And you know why were we so particular on that, reason is very simple,… that’s due to fuel hike which we both don’t want to travel unnecessary.

If this happened to those days, we’ll have breakfast in one end and run errands on the other end of the island. Well, those lavish and luxury days no more exist, anymore.

Well, let’s not bog down by these negativities that will spoil our appetite.

Those living in Georgetown (which recently has inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage list) will know this stall used to be in Kimberly Street. And I heard they also have another stall which operates at night in Farlim one of the resident area too.

Anyway, this stall is located at the end of Carnavon Street, and it’s actually located in one of the shop which is triangle in shape. This shop used to be wholesale cutleries and plates, but now has turned into a coffee shop. To be more specific, this stall is located opposite the police station and diagonal opposite a wet market.

Ok, now back to the main attraction – Koay Teow Th’ng.

Look at the bowl of Koay Teow Th’ng, didn’t it get you drooling over and bite it and get it swallow?? Hehehehe… that’s very bad of me, huh?

Anyway, we waited almost an hour just to have a bowl of this. Cuz, I can tell you their customers base is really huge and I could see many level of people patronize this place for breakfast, even a white collar, blue collar, uncles, aunties and etc.

It’s hard to find any stalls right now that give intestines. And when you’re there, you wouldn’t care about cholesterol. Most important is to fill up the stomach!!

Hot Wok, Tanjong Tokong

** HOT WOK has closed down **











The other day, I passed by Tanjong Tokong and didn’t know Hot Wok have moved; only know they will be opened another one in Burmah Road. Thought that could be the branch, didn’t know they moved out from Tanjong Tokong.

In fact, the one in Tanjong Tokong is more spacious, and that can park many cars in that compound. After I noticed they have moved, I realized I have a post on them has yet to publish.

This post is kind of long enough, this was taken sometime in December last year where we do not know what to take for dinner, and we drove all the way to Tanjong Tokong for Nyonya food.

In fact, we ordered quite a lot of dishes the other day and I can’t recall how much we pay for it too.
We ordered a tom yam soup, of which I don’t understand why we order tom yam soup in a Nyonya restaurant. Anyway, it wasn’t that good; it was just ok to me. But yet, can’t tell what went wrong too.
They also recommended this dish to us; they will deep fried the fish and pour their special sauce on to the fish. First taste was ok to me and this is something different. But after a few bites, I think I prefer those authentic Curry Tumis.

When you’re into Nyonya restaurant, you wouldn’t want to miss their ‘Tau Yiu Bak’ (Dark Soya Sauce Meat). I believe this is their authentic dish.




We also have a Belanchan Fried Chicken in case their serving is small.

With all the meats, we have 2 plates of vegetables.

Stir fry bean sprouts with salted fish.

And, a mixed vegetables.

The dinner isn’t that appetizing to me, guess I prefer others Nyonya restaurant. I remember once I went to Mama Nyonya in Abu Sitee Lane, their food was excellent, unfortunately at that time I was yet a blogger. Well, it gives me a reason to visit them again, huh?

Oh yes, this place is famous of the antique items, like sewing machine, tiffin carrier, pictures, etc. It gives their customer a pleasant place to dine in. Yet, I have not explored how the new one looks like. I hope I’ll visit them soon.

Chicago Rib House (revisit)

Have anyone had come across any roasted port meat pizza??? I personally have not, and not even know there’s such pizza till I re-visit Chicago Rib House on June 21.

When my family scan thru what they want to order for themselves, my brother-in-law and I were filtering thru the menu and wonder what to order. The last time we came was on Mother’s Day, and have had some pork ribs that were recommended by their outlet manager.

So, this round we are going to have something different, other than those normal stuff that we had order.
I have myself a Hawaiian Chicken Pizza, though this is kind of normal among the others, but taste wise I can say it’s some how better than Pizza Hut. But, I realized they put lots of onions on it.
Hubby got himself a BBQ Pork Chop. I was kind of sceptical when he ordered that. But, to my surprise, it was so delicious. The meat was tender too.
And, sis ordered a deep fried mushroom as a starter for everyone to munch. To our surprise, the mushroom is not just filled with batter, but, it’s tasty too. It comes with a bowl of English mustard, which is completely nice to accommodate with these mushrooms.
Another sis of mine, have herself a BBQ Chicken. Well, that to me it’s kind of normal, but yet, the meat are tender too. I wonder did they put anything like soda bicarbonate.
Ok, here comes the Roasted Pork Meat Pizza!!!!

Look at the dough; it’s thin, and crispy. Needless to say more about it but grab one and eat it!! Cuz, I would tell you it’s yummy, delicious, tasty!!!

Home Cook Food

I’ve been really busy at work, even Saturday also got to work too. However, am going to post something simple and short for this weekend.

One of mom’s best foods is her way of cooking baby octopus. This dish could actually get an order from her sisters from other states.

Though I am not really a fan of baby octopus, but honestly, with her style of cooking, this is really the best.

Many restaurants will have the baby octopus boiled or steamed. But mom’s version of cooking baby octopus is stir fried with chillies paste and curry leaves.

First she’ll stir fry the chillies paste till fragrant, and also the curry leaves. Then only add the baby octopus to the wok.
She said needless to stir fry for a long time, but till it’s cooked. This is best to eat with steam rice.

Day 2 Breakfast at The Taste, Westin Langkawi

This is our day 2 breakfast in Westin Langkawi, and it’s also the last breakfast that we are going to have it here.

Don’t know am I missing home or I am missing Pangkor Laut Resort, the feeling that am having down here, is so much different from what I had in Pangkor Laut Resort. I can still remember that vividly.
Oh yes, have anyone come across buffet breakfast serves sparking wine? Well, I personally have not come across, in fact, this is the first hotel that I ever discovered. Surprise to see that, huh?

Again, we didn’t have much for day 2. We took something that could fill up our stomach then after we proceed to check out.
Since day 1 I didn’t have porridge for breakfast, I had one bowl for that day morning. Of course, all these can’t compared with our home cook porridge, however, it isn’t that bad with our own adds on like salted egg, spring onions, sesame oil and so on.
After that, I had a sunny upside egg, with chicken sausages, baked beans and potato. The potato isn’t taste nice at all… and the colour is some kind of weird to me. Or was I adventurous enough to get one to try on, huh? [LOL]
Croissant is always hubby’s favourite. He’ll never give it a miss.

In fact the buffet in Westin is the same, there’s no change on those things that they served. Thus, hubby didn’t really into this buffet in fact.
He got himself a Roti Canai, and he was commenting that he could make better than this. I was really laughing out loud on that.
And a plate of dim sum that ends our breakfast in The Taste, Westin Langkawi.
