F4 Fish Head

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Sometimes we can find good and yummy food in the least expected places. Who will ever thought there is restaurant situated in an industrial area. Yup, we went to F4 Fish Head situated at the Subang Industrial Area. The restaurant was situated next to USJ Badminton Hall. If you are looking for the place, you'll be passing by a stretch of factory outlet before you managed to get to F4 Fish Head.

Look for this signage.

The outlook of the restaurant. It doesn't look like a restaurant from far.

Lots and lots of people waiting by 6pm plus.

Twin sauce steamed fish - ginger and 'cheung ching' sauce. The fish were fresh and the both sauces tasted excellent.

Germany Pork Knuckle - the sauce taste like a mixture of pepper and some 'sourish' ingredient. Something special. Worth to try.

' Sei Ta Tin Wong' aka Four Heavenly King - stir fried with lots of dried shrimps and Belacan.

Four Treasure Beancurd

Fu Yong Omelette

Overall, we had a satisfying meal. The price were reasonable too. The bill came to RM 99.40 for the dishes, 7 pax of tea and rice and 1 herbal drink. We will definitely come to pay F4 a visit again.

Rocket United Cafe

Saturday, September 26, 2009

We were heading to SS2 for some yum-char session. Initially we were supposed to head to another cafe in the neighbourhood but the environment of that particular cafe was too hot and stuffy even though the waitress told us that the air-conditioner was on. Since we can imagined ourselves being seated there for a few hours in a sauna like cafe, we decided to change our yum char venue to the first political themed cafe I that ever seen in Klang Valley - Rocket United Cafe. Apparently the decor and items in this cafe was related the 'Rocket' Party.

Rocket supporters can opt to buy some memorabillia from the shelves too..

Are you a 'Rocketeer'?

Prominent figures wall paper on the wall

Books for reading on the shelves too..

The group that funded this cafe....

Since we were there for some drinks only, we didn't order any food but from my observation on their menu, this cafe offers different varities of local dishes like nasi lemak, Char Kuey Teow and etc. I read good reviews about their food from other food bloggers. Maybe we can try out their food in our next visit there. By the way, for those who haven't register themselves as a voter can also get their registration done in the cafe too. :)

Name-less Tai Chow Stall in Paramount Garden

Friday, September 25, 2009

There is one Chinese 'Tai Chow' stall that is situated in front of the Giant Hypermarket in Paramount Garden that offers good Chinese food. This is the place till date that in my opinion cooked the best Sweet and Sour Pork (Ku Lou Yuk) dish that I had ever taste. The pork were deep-fried till very crunchy and remains crunchy even after the sweet and sour gravy was added into the dish. I will definitely recommend this place for those who are like me - a 'Ku Lou Yuk' lover. For our dinner tonight, we had ordered my must have Ku Lou Yuk, Crispy Sotong with Sambal and Stir-fry Kai Lan.

As usual, my favourite dish doesn't disappoint me. Crispy Sotong was okay but they turned to be a bit soggy after some time due to the Sambal paste and for the vege- well it tasted just like what is being offered in other places. Total damage for our dinner tonight was RM34 (3 dishes, 2 Iced Chinese Tea and 2 plates of rice).

Medan Selera Stadium Ipoh

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

This is our last stop before heading back to get our Chee Cheung Fun order - Medan Selera Stadium Ipoh. After getting the taste of the best Tau Fu Far and Mah Chee in Ipoh town. We were here to quench our thirst and Hubby ordered Rojak too. So our itinerary today were filled with food, food and food. Our calories counter are really moving up fast! Must exercise more liao.

Fruit Rojak - Hubby commented Ipoh's rojak sauce is the best. He can't find it anywhere in KL


Hong Kee Mah Chee

There seems to be a lot of great food being offered in the Pasir Pinji area. This stall has been featured in newspaper and Hochiak before. They are two items sold in the stall 'Mah Chee' and 'Far Sang Wu' aka Peanut Soup. The stall were located at the road side just in front of the housing area. You definitely won't missed it once you were in the Pasir Pinji area.

Both items sold at the price of RM1.50

Soft Mah Chee coated with lots lots of peanuts..

A packet of peanut coated Mah Chee - my fave!


Funny Mountain Soya Bean

My first experience tasting this Tau Fu Far was few years back with a few of my colleagues during our makan trip to Ipoh. We were instantly in love with the silky smooth Tau Fu Far which basically glides down you throat and have the 'warmify' tummy effect. Goodness... Slurp slurp and the best part if you don't enjoy to have the Tau Fu Far at their shop due to the hot weather, you can basically order them and enjoy the rich goodness in the comfort of your air-conditioned car. Yup yup; they have drive thru service. Super fast and super efficient! Besides Tau Fu Far, they also sells Soya Bean Milk and Cincau or you can basically mixed both of them to have MJ (Cincau plus soya bean milk)

So nowadays, I always pay them a visit everytime we were back in Ipoh to have my 'fix' of Tau Fu Far craving. All this were done while waiting for my Pasir Pinji Chee Cheung Fun.

No fixed closing time. Once sold off, can close liao...

The Legendary Pasir Pinji Chee Cheung Fun

I had finally managed to pay a visit to the legendary Pasir Pinji Chee Cheung Fun where I heard a lot of praises and the funny part of this Chee Cheung Fun seller, every customer who walks in need to obtain a queue number before being served. That's what we call system. Initially I thought we will be given a small ticket with number but I am so wrong. They basically just give you a number and you need to remember it by heart. So after getting the number, you need to be prepare to wait and I really meant it - WAIT with PATIENCE. This Chee Cheung Fun was operated by an old couple where the Uncle was responsible in making the Chee Cheung Fun at the back of their house and the Aunty with the help of a helper were in charge of cutting and putting sauces to the freshly made Chee Cheung Fun.

The Chee Cheung Fun stall were located in a housing area situated at Jln Pasir Pinji 5

We were walking to our destination after getting our car parked at the nearby shop lot
We were approaching our destination.... Yippee!

In case you are wondering, the house number was 1456

Auntie seems to be pretty busy at the counter...

So I was practically happily snapping pictures of the surrounding while Hubby getting our queue number. While snapping pictures, the lady helper of the stall was telling me, 'Don't snap my face ya'. OOps.. Sorry, luckily I wasn't snapping her picture at all. Then I realised an old Uncle was busy preparing fresh Chee Cheung Fun at the back of the house. I am so tempted to snap the Uncle's picture but dare not since it was situated at the back of the house. After waiting for a few minutes, we managed to get our number. We were lucky 26 for the day. The Auntie was telling us, go and 'jalan-jalan' first, it will take some time till your number. At that moment, I think the running number was around 7. I looked at my watch and it was around 1.45pm. So we decided to wander around Ipoh town to look for the best Tau Fu Far in town (refer to my post here) while waiting for our turn for Chee Cheung Fun.

We came back to the stall around 3pm and we were no where near the number 26. Number 19 was still sitting there waiting for his 'tar pau'. OMG, I was thinking, it really take ages for our 26 number. Hubby and I decided to try the Thai Style Otak-otak that was sold in the place while waiting. The Otak-otak tasted spicy and full of fish meats. Just the right spiciness for me and it cost us RM4 only. I bet we can't find this kinda Otak-otak with the same price tag in KL. After getting our tummy filled with some Otak-otak while trying to kill of some time waiting for our turn, I get another shock in life, number 12 customer came and ask for his order. You must be surprised to hear the amount of 'tar pau' he had ordered, it was 30 packs of Chee Cheung Fun. I guess it will really take ages till our number 26. So AGAIN, we decided to leave the stall and wander around again for some snack before going back to our Chee Cheung Fun order. Wonder what we had this time. Kindly click here and here.

It was GOOD and decently priced

After having some drinks and snacks, we were back at Pasir Pinji Chee Cheung Fun. Luckily it was almost our turn now and it was 4pm plus when we got our ordered 'tar pau'. This is definitely the longest waiting time for a Chee Cheung Fun I had in life till date. 5 packs of Chee Cheung Fun took us 2 hours plus waiting. So averagely 1 pack of Chee Cheung Fun took half an hour to be prepared. *Faint*

Our long awaited Chee Cheung Fun

After the long 2 hours plus wait, we were back at home sitting comfortably savouring the Chee Cheung Fun. They just melts in you mouth, soft and smooth combines with their sauces and green chillies and fried shallots and not forgetting the fragrance of the dried shrimps. It was wonderful and heaven. Definitely worth the wait but I think I shall only pay them my second visit during a non-holiday season to cut down of the waiting time. :)

Hubby's Birthday Dinner at Olivenz Cafe

Monday, September 21, 2009

We were back in Ipoh for the Raya holiday and coincidentally Hubby's birthday falls on the second day of Raya. Me being a blur sotong in Ipoh was absolutely clueless on the whereabouts of places to treat Hubby for a birthday dinner. Google and fellow bloggers' blog was my only source of info to look for a decent place for dinner. After google-ing on the recommended places in Ipoh, I had shortlisted a few places for the dinner. Of course I need the birthday boy's help to look and hunt for the exact location. After shortlisting the places, we actually 'ronda' around Ipoh for the few places and our winner for tonight's dinner is.......................................

Olivenz Cafe situated at Bandar Baru Medan Ipoh

Our birthday boy - Dear Hubby... :)

Hubby's choice - Secret Garden (Apple, Kiwi, Banana and Milk)

My choice - Queen's Love (Strawberry, Orange and Milk) Trying to be Queen of coz...

Cute drink stirrer

Starter - Baked Escargots

Cheeselicious escargot

Hubby's choice - Butteryaki Chicken (grilled chicken in japanese butter sauce)

My choice - Red Wine Lamb Shoulder (grilled lamb in red wine glaze)

Me and Hubby

Overall, the environment for the place was okay but the butteryaki chicken was too salty for my taste. Hubby commented the same too. The red wine lamb shoulder was good. They were generous in the meat portion and top with the red wine sauce, they tasted wonderful. We had a great time there. Luckily, the place doesn't let us down since the dinner was meant to give the birthday boy a dinner treat. Once again, in this post, I would like to take the opportunity again to wish Hubby:
