Prawn Mee@Kampar.

To me breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

It gives me the energy to "kick start" the day.

On outstation trip, the fun is waking up early to find food to fill my stomach
especially hawker's stalls or coffee shops near busy wet market.

Kampar town is full of good food all through out the day and night.

Breakfast @ Wing Lok Yuen Coffee Shop (famous for it's original and
legendary charcoal fired Clay pot Chicken rice in the night) of Prawn
Mee with braised pig's trotter, tofu, pig's intestine and pork ribs as a side dish was delicious.

The Prawn mee soup is not as robust unlike others-light prawn taste with not too
much of red chillies scummed oil-beansprouts, sliced fish cake, fresh shrimps, Chinese chives and
rice vermicelli.

The braised stuffs were well braised- tender ribs/pig's trotter and soft tofu.

Parking is OK.

Prawn Mee-Rm3.80/.

Overall the food is good and service is attentive.

Kedai Makanan Rasa Lain@Bercham,Ipoh.

I can still remember the variety of dishes that we had for dinner @Kedai Makanan Rasa Lain
a year ago.

Another invitation by my niece Huey Ling and her hubby to join them for dinner there
could not be missed.

We reached at about six pm and a slight drizzle was good and welcome on a hot and humid night.

I was told that the boss only served the freshest fishes and crustaceans which he stocked
up daily.

All in we ordered six of their signature dishes plus a deep fried dry brinjal, enough to feed seven hungry adults.

The food was exceptionally fresh and delicious and our favorite was those outstanding big steamed springy fish balls. 

Parking is ample.

Steamed "Bearded" Chicken-lean, muscled and tender-topped with kei chee and spring onion and coriander leaves-Rm45/.

Steamed Lala -just nice-juicy and succulent-with ginger, garlic, bird;s eye chillies and garnished with chopped spring onion-5 stars-Rm18/

Ming Sate Hut@Melaka.

Another of Melaka's delights is Pork Satay.

We tried the other famous satay shop in Kampung Hulu the other day and was impressed.

Ming Sate Hut located a few doors from Nadeje is just as good.

They are more generous with their peanut/pineapple/belimbing sauce which leaves a tingling spicy, sourish sweet taste on your palate with every dip and bite.

Their all time favorites, pig's intestines were sold out-had grilled chicken innard, pork belly and chicken satay, instead.

Well marinated-tender, mist and juicy meat while the innards were chewy and crunchy.

 The only complain is the small bite sized satay.

Parking is ok.

Simple dining area.

Heng Hainanese Chicken Rice@Melaka.

The weekend crowds that swarmed and queued to eat boiled Chicken and rice balls in Jonker Street is
a hot and sweaty affairs and too touristy.

I would not do that even if, it's for free !

We found a quieter and not too crowdy place (nearby our hotel) to savor both farmed boiled chicken/roast chicken with 30 pieces of firm, round and fluffy rice balls and a good red chillies sauce for dip.

Plus another three side dishes i.e. nutritious black bean/chicken feet soup, stir fried crunchy Chinese round cabbage and a clay pot of spicy and sourish Assam Senangin (Threadfin) chunks with assorted vegetables.

A great and wholesome meal and reasonably priced.

Parking is ample.

Yin Yong chicken-soft and tender.

Hand rolled round rice balls-kept warm in a rice cooker.

Chinese round cabbage-sweet and crunchy
Assam Senangin fish chunks-fresh and sourish to prep up our appetite.

Black Beans soup with chicken feet-well boiled but a bit diluted.

Spicy red chillies sauce and a bottle of thick dark soy sauce.
