Revisited Ong Cheng Huat on Daddiez Day

Finally, Koay family made our way to Ong Cheng Huat for lunch…
Everyone of us also went before… except the poor mummy… he he


Daddy always dropped by for lunch when he worked around that area,
ko ko, je fu and ah yee went with colleagues,
je je went since many years ago…
kimmie and stewpig went with colleague and frens too…
Pity the Karen-mummy… never tried…

we always ‘planned’ to go but whenever we think of the way crossing over the bridge.. we gave up…

Today, I insisted to make a move! since it’s Daddy’s day sumore… yo hoo~~

No need to intro much, the dishes here are Fixed !
Famous steamed fish in 1 style, Stir-fry la la in 1 recipe, deep-fried crispy shrimp-fritters, Octopus with Garlic Oil, Homemade Special Tofu… (more photos on my
1st post on last year)

Something new I tried in this re-visit are the Fried Bee Hoon Mee ( Nice Raye and Eve purposely ordered Bee Hoon for me during our last-trip, and I thought they only offered fried bee hoon !! he he.. thanks~ )


And the Big Prawn which we didn’t order the last round…
I insisted to try the Coconut Tuak with Guinness Stout this time..

shame to say that, the coconut tuak is far from my liking, the sour taste is not-really-nice-for-me…
it tastes slightly more acceptable after mixed with the stout… I’m really my daddy’s daughter, as a crazie drinker like him ( almost drink & eat EVERYTHING ) doesn’t like coconut tuak too…


got some photos taken during the way to Raja Uda
It’s so fAR !! -_-“

luckily got lil monster to create some 'fun' for us...


Penang is so Hazy~~~~~~~~~~ -_-""
thanks to our brainless-neighbour !
pic taken while duin prayer for ah kong at Kek Lok Si...
Fu Chan Jit Fai Lok, Gong~ we always love you ! *muaz

Family Private Dinner at 119

3 weeks ago, daddy brought us for a ‘Private-dinner’…

What is it bout the private dinner?
Uh hmmm… we eat in the owner’s house
You won’t allow to place order, you will not know what are you going to eat…

A full course dinner with 7 – 8 or 10 dishes..
it depends, as I said, we eat what the chef cooked…
Price Range between Rm420 or Rm 520 for 10 pax…
They use the beautiful antique cutleries when serving...

The owner was supposed to have a shop selling Canto Cuisine situated around Chulia Street
we used to dine in there very often.. the foods are so nice !!
very sad indeed, they stopped doing business since 3 yrs ago…
reason being they wanted to r-e-t-i-r-e…. what can we say then? *sniff… :’(

We known they’re doing this ‘private-dinner’ thingy for long time, but never make ourselves to there…
And finally, daddy took the initiative to ring them up !

All of us were so looking forward… wondering what we will get to eat…
We were brought to a room with air-cond, huge TV, antiques houseware… There was another table of diners next to us on that nite…
teng teng... 1st dish served...
Owner told us it’s OTAKbased on it’s look, there’s no way to convince me or us that it’s by any chance look like an "OTAK"…

Nonetheless… It tasted Amazing… even the Kerabu Salad below the Satay Prawn is so so Tasty !!
------
2nd dish is Bird Nest Chickenwe thought it’s a soup dish.. in fact, it’s not… just a Chicken & Bacon (金华火腿)dish with some soup…
the Chinese Mushroom cooked till really soft and absorb the flavour of the soup...
-------
here the ‘Real-Soup' comes...
"Shark-Fin"
we will not know it's sharkfin if the boss didn't tell... the way they cooked is totally different from any place...
notwithstanding, it's nice !there're chinese mushroom, sharkfin, egg white, coriander and etc...
it goes well with vinegar...
--------
and my Fav-of-the-nite came..... *weEEee
斋菜
Mixed Veggie of, white cabbage, carrot, beancurd, black fungus, mushroom and etc...
we love their 罗汉斋 very much.. it's a must-order-dish whenever we visit their old shop...
this is the superb of that dish.. added more ingredients and transformed abit...
Home Fried Rice...
simple fried rice with egg and 'Chinese Smoked Sausage'...
we supposed they're using some special 腊肠... as it tasted really yummie... even a small piece of it... brings fastastic taste...
-------
Spare Ribs with special sauce...
no idea how to describe this dish... as dunno what kinda style is this? just know the tastiness is oh hoo ~~~~
the meat is so so so so so tender...
like the softness can get it 'melt' in your mouth... he he
it's so well-flavoured, I guess the chef must have cooked this for really long hours !!!
Very very Delicious !!
--------
Steamed Fish in Miso Recipe
does the name sounds unusual?
the soup-based is very special...
tasted bit sour... but unlike the Teoh Chew Style type..
all of us kept guessing what recipe it is? some rare taste but very Tasty...
until we finished the fish but still failed to guess what type of flavour is it, we decided to ask the boss... and he gave us an unexpected answer which is " MISO "
but it tasted totally different with the miso soup that we can easily get in any Japs Rest....
it's really nice !!
---------
Dessert of the day - Barley, with Wintermelon, waterchestnut & Ginko...
choices of cold or hot...


all of us given them a double-thumbs-up when walking out from their house/shop/restaurant ~ ^^
we will be backed !

f00d hunt at Sg Pinang Food Court

there's a new foodcourt opened at Sg Pinang...
at the junction of Jelutong Express Highway to Sg Pinang/ Perak Lane...
this has become the new fav spot of Koay family...
it started business for 2 weeks, and mah family already had 3 visits to there...

the varieties of foods are cool... almost 30 or maybe over 30 stalls of hawkers...
which mostly all are selling delicious cuisine...
why I would say so...?
just see...

during mah 1st visit ( 2nd of my parents)
6 of us - mah parents, je je, je fu, stewpig, cayden and I...
we had unexpectedly-crazie-plenty of foods...

I ordered ONLY
Mixed-Fruits Sago Dessert from 阿公汤水, rm5.00
this is not bad.. I like it ! ^^
supposed the mixed-fruits are come with mango, lychee, honeydew, papaya, dragonfruit, jackfruits and jelly...
but I customade this for myself !!
they sell Tong Yuen and others dessert too...

stewpig had the Belacan Fried Chicken.. which is really not bad too.. the meat is tender and soft...quite good selling, thus they chicken always fried freshly... very crispy !!
Cuttle Fish with Kang Kung
this is very nice indeed... the nice ms bossie gives a lot of nuts...
the portion like this costs only rm 6.00
daddy said the cuttlefish is really fresh and chewy... *highly recommended
up to this moment...
je fu already finished his Herbal Soup Noodle ( I forgot to take pic )
its stall is attached with the Yong Tau Foo, was previously selling at BT FoodCourt..
all the Herbal Soup are highly recommended...
the family is doing Herbal Business... shop located nearby Tai Tong...
apparently, their soup is really using great ingredients...

besides, je je already finished her 2 rolls of Poh Piah...
and we shared a Laksa too....

we saw many ppl eating the WantanMee... seems really not bad...
thus we too ordered 1 to try...
no doubt.. it's really Nice !
the noodle is slightly flat type.. which I love very much... barely see this type of noodle anymore !!!
*I never see any wantanmee served in such a 'dirty/messy' plate.. but it's look certainly made me feel that it's even tasty.. :P

there's a stall selling dry/ soup Curry Mee...
quite a lot of ppl eating it too...
hence, YES... je fu ordered ONE to try !
never upset us that, it tasted simply awesome !
eventho it doesn't come with the soup... but the noodles are well-flavoured indeed...
it's even nicer than a lot of soup-based Curry Mee out there !!
all of us like this ! *thumbs up

here comes the Ah Chu Curry Fish Head...
when daddy told me that he ordered a SMALL Curry Fish Head... the naive me really thought that it's just a small portion...
when it served...
yes, the portion is not big...
BUT !!

daddy ordered side dishes of Onion Omellete and Homemade Stir-Fry Bean Curd somemore...
*oh my..
but this is a Must-Try !! the homemade beancurd is rather soft... very nice !

when you see such a big stall of East Coast BBQ/ Grilled Fish..
how on earth could you resist not to order anything ? ( oh ya... we just can't )when stewpig said he's gonna order some grilled fish...
I thought there would be only grilled fish...
just see....
Grilled Sting Ray... this is always good !
there came the Fried La La with tiny dried shrimp...daddy said the lala is from Sea but not mud... it's not big but really juicy and great in taste ! *Recommended

Fried Sotong ~

we felt bad...
hawkers supposed something 'cheaper'
but we ended up had a luxurious hawker foods dinner
6 of us, ordered 14 foods ! -_-"
our table couldn't even fit all the plates and bowls, we hafta kept moving the plates away once we finished... (after moved away some plates aside... )
Remove Formatting from selectionlittle monster took this pic for his beloved mummy while we on the way back ! *so sweet

few days later, we went again...
these round we didn't not order That Much.. but still some...
something repeated orders and some new tries...
Malay Satay...

Chee Cheung Fun from the same stall of CuttleFish Kang Kung...

Steamed White Chicken with bean sprout...
this chicken is so so so soft... daddy likes it very much !

this time I tried the Mango Sago... which is very good taste too !
while je ordered the Barley, Ginko Dessert... won't be too sweet, just nice !
