restoran sin hock seng

in to-eat-or-to-live, i dont just write about good food, but also the not so good ones as this is a food blog after all... i write about the good and bad encounters.

and this post is about the latter :)

went here for breakfast one sunday morning out of convenience as we were waiting for the bridal studio to open (nobody's getting married, we were just there to view ziling's graduation studio pictures). there were hardly any patrons when we were there and the place look utmost unwelcoming, not the best place to indulge in a cuppa while reading the sunday news.

actually its not the place to do anything here! unlike usual plastic tables and chairs, the owner of this place (im refraining myself from calling it a "restaurant" even if the signboard suggests so) must have love mcdonalds (mcds is actually just opposite) as it has the same type of tables and chairs. ciggie butts and used tissues are sighted everywhere. i guess the reason for its existance until now is the income from the lunch crowd during weekdays from the nearby offices.

nasi lemak + ayam masak merah- rm4.50

i usually wont take nasi lemak on a sunday like this but that day was an exception (cravings?). this nasi lemak is definitely nowhere near awesome. but i'd like to comment on the ayam masak merah. it was rocky hard, how it was cooked is beyond my comprehension. the only thing i like about the whole traditional fare is the peanuts. really crunchy, i like.

pork ball noodles

fish head noodles

eldest sis had the pork ball noodles while mom had fish head noodles. heard they were not too good as well and mom said it was not worth the money paid. it must be a case of standard kl price vs. standard ipoh taste. hahaha, told ya ipoh people are damn fussy with their food.

pork noodles

pork noodles is not the same with pork ball noodles. pork noodles has pork slices and the occassional pork livers AND pig intestines which we all love. i didnt ask second sis how this bowl of noodles taste like though.

if you want delicious value for money pork noodles, i know one in ipoh which has like the bestest soup base, the most generous pork servings (pork slices, livers, intestines, minced pork, minced pork patties) AND this thingy which looks like a sponge (fish maw?? im not sure of its name)... its been ages since i had that pork noodles and im craving for it now... oh and the best thing? it's only bout rm3 for a large bowl. dont know got increase price or not-lah. btw im going back ipoh this friday and really hope to eat!!

pan mee soup

grandma had the pan mee soup. i also didnt ask her how it taste like.

bubur cha cha

leng chi kang

gingko barley

we all had tong sui instead of the usual hot tea/coffee. every dine-in bowl of tong sui retails at rm2.50 and take away is at rm3. i heard bad comments from mom and sis about the bubur cha cha and leng chi kang. my second sis and i had the gingko barley or pak guo yi mei. the only saving grace in this bowl of tong sui is the pak guo (gingko) which we ultimately love. too bad it only has a few pieces innit. the barley was too diluted.

if you are willing to spend a few more bucks, mcdonalds at the opposite might be a better choice for meals.

and cleaner too :)


on a non-eating note, if you've been an avid fan of patrick teoh's productions/ loves live plays, sketches, theatre/ feeling depressed and need a good laugh, do as i say:
  1. go to
  2. google for google video
  3. type "the executive spa"
  4. load all 4 parts of "the executive spa"
  5. laugh till you can no longer laugh
it. is. TEH. FUNNY.
god, i love patrick. love his voice. i also like to read his takes on the gov. hehehe.

The best fish head noodles can be found in Taman Desa! The soup base is really "kao". Their very generous with the ingredients in the soup. Yum yum yum! Drools...

I long for Nasi Lemak. Till now, no senior has cooked it. I also not sure how to cook it. I miss it so much. I eat it at least twice a week back in Malaysia.

If that nasi lemak was given to me here. I'd probably savor every spoon of it. :-p

calvin: im never a big fan of fish head noodles... nasi lemak shouldnt be hard i think. fried anchovies, peanuts. then the rice is just put santan. cucumber and hard boiled egg. as for sambal... err chilli sauce?? hehehe.

chang: yeah the mak cik that goes, "lin chi kang satuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu". LOL.
