Early Sunday morning and do not know where to head for breakfast. After take a drive around for 15 minutes then my friend come accross this place and saw, eh eh, try this stall, it was one of the stall that I used to eat during college times which is pretty famous. Then I agree since I have never tried this. Bridge Head Hokkien Mee & Loh Mee

loh Mee (1)

After Google up a few article only came across to know that this Hokkien Mee stall is actually quite authentic in taste as the recipe had pass down from previous generation. The family had started selling since 1963 by the Lau family and currently, its 2nd generation that  selling at the moment..

loh Mee (2)

The stall is located at a very obvious junction if you are taking the Jelutong Expressway exit towards Prangin Mall, its a pre-war building right at the corner of the traffic light that you can see people actually sitting there and eat.

loh Mee (4)

It had been a while since I had my last bowl of Loh Mee, and to say that Penang Loh Mee and KL Loh Mee is pretty different as Penang version is black starchy gooey soup base they have. To make the taste even better you have to add in special garlic sauce that every loh mee stall created for themselves and this stall had make it quite strong in taste as you just add abit and some of the chili would be perfect.

Next we order another bowl of Hokkien Mee to share and I add in Pork Ribs. Soup base is rich in flavour as you can taste it with pork bone and prawn heads they have cook for quite a while. A pretty decent bowl of breakfast to go after.

I still say, I prefer other stalls.  No harm to try this out .. 😉

On our first night, arriving at Taiwan, it was all about eating and walking around as we head to business district to meet up with Pak’s friend that had arrange way before and booked a lovely Malat Buffet Steamboat restaurant (Man Tang Hong, 滿堂紅) for us, and surely they had made the right decision for us as we starve ourselves all the way from Malaysia to Taiwan just to eat their local food.

After 10 -15 minutes walk from the station that we disembark, here we are, in front of the restaurant with many people waiting around the restaurant.

restaurant 1

restaurant 1 (3)

When I walk up the stairs and the first thing that is was some young chef slicing those juicy and fresh meat and roll it into mini rolls and told my friend this is a must have section.

restaurant 1 (4)

Their interior build up is quite simple like our locals just that it looks nicer with wooden floor and hard plastic material that build around to build up some sections and the place are quite narrow and pack.

restaurant 1 (6)

This is where Pak introduce two of his best friends to all of us from left Eva and Tina.

restaurant 1 (5)

Once we were seated down, in the little menu, there are varieties of soup base to choose from, one of it that will not miss is their ‘Ma-lat Soup’ and ‘Sour Salted Vegetable Soup’.

restaurant 1 (7)

During the food ordering, of course we leave it to the experts to order and our responsible is to EAT! Drinks is free flow, with all the soft drinks Coke, Sprite and some of their local brands available in  glass bottle that store in two big fridge.

restaurant 1 (8)

One of their local food that you would want to try is the black stick (its in chinese do not know what it is called in english) that is made of something like our local muar chi add in with alot of black sesame. Taste weird at first but after the whole stick, turns out to be not bad, soft and filled with sesame taste.

restaurant 1 (9)

Item that must order which is their very own ‘Homemade Fish Paste’ by using bamboo and you can put into the soup according the size and shape you want.

restaurant 1 (10)

Comes to the meat section that had been perfectly thin slice by machine to make it instantly cook by a few dip in the hot soup are : ‘Beef Slices’

restaurant 1 (11)

‘Pork and Lamb Slices’

restaurant 1 (12)

This is what I mean, a whole thin slice of lamb, and flat it on top of the soup base and use your chopstick stir it for a while(less than 30 secs) then bring it out.

restaurant 1 (13)

This is how it must be done to ensure it is soft and not too hard. Lamb and beef definately is my choice in this range.

restaurant 1 (14)

After start off with meat section then we add in everything into the soup, while it takes time to cook, the clear soup base turns out to be quite bland in taste only manage to taste on a bit clear sour flavor but if you love something spicy or especially during winter and you want to enjoy a bit of sweat then ‘Malak’ is certainly the choice you must not miss. Spicy at 60% level where it is still edible not a few bites then you blow out flames, sour and to me its challenging to eat with the meat and ingredient but that was my main target for the whole night. Thumbs up!

restaurant 1 (15)

This is the homemade fish paste that we order again (as I do not like fish ball or paste, this turns out to be good).

restaurant 1 (21)

Lining up for sauces and revealing to us some secrets.

restaurant 1 (2)

Eating steamboat would not be perfect if you miss out the sauces. They have at least more than 15 sauces for you to go after.

restaurant 1 (16)

Then Eva and Tina show us their secret recipe of the sauces that they discover.

restaurant 1 (17)

The secret mixture of this are, peanut powder, chopped green onions, finely chopped and season garlic, a bit of chili powder, chopped chili, ONLY egg yolk and soy sauce. Result: hint of 4 flavors to enhance our taste bud and its superbly good!

restaurant 1 (18)

The packed of monkey that Eva is holding is actually a Packed of Maggie mee very cute of the packing and surely it taste like uncooked Mamee that we used to eat.

restaurant 1 (19)

During the dinner while waiting we camwhore abit and as for Eva it was funny and cute to see her talk for the first time as she just went to see dentist before meeting us.

restaurant 1 (20)

restaurant 1 (22)

It was fun to have them around as it makes the whole dinner merrier.

restaurant 1 (23)

Then after that I wasy busy eating . . .

restaurant 1 (24)

and we have around 15 pax for that night.

restaurant 1 (26)

restaurant 1 (27)

If you guys feel that the buffet is too heavy for you and would like to take something sweet by sitting there accompany your friend, for girls and guys that love ice-cream you will definitely be in heaven with the available selection as many as 12 flavors Hagen-Das.

restaurant 1 (28)

restaurant 1 (29)

First round of food was so satisfying, with great food and value that the dinner was only at NT550 = RM55 per pax, that  valid for 2 hours session, with fresh ingredient and also with great companion for a start.

If you are looking something to start off with some damage on your stomach, then this is the place worth to try. It is advise to make a booking before you go.

After visit Wong Tai Sin and hurried back to change and meet the rest of the ppl then all of us head to Central, which is the high end shopping area. Filled with all the branded shops.
Taking train from our hotel to Central is not that long. About 15 minutes train ride. One thing I find it quite funny is, they have shoe polish stall as and not only 1 stall..there’s quite a number of it. While I was taking this pic I kena scold by the uncle talking on the hand phone shouting at me..CAnnot take pic..cannot take pic (in Cantonese). I don care la..faster take then cabut!

It was a busy Monday, and every 1 start working already and Central is also known as the main center of working district filled with all those big companies. It was lunch time, and the ppl walking around..is like siau lang..so many ppl on every where of the streets…..

We are heading to a shop which is quite popular in HK which is H&M.

I am a happy shopper came out with whole set of top, t-shirt, vest, and cap. Which I think this brand is nicer than any Top Shop we have in Malaysia. 3 Item cost me around HKD550(RM225) if in Malaysia easily exceed RM300 for the items I bought. The design that they have is even nicer.
This shop has 4 levels, basement is for guys, and for girls, you will go crazee, as the accessories is nice, the girls department lagi nice..which consist of 2 lvls and top lvls is for kids.
Remark: bring more money when you want to shop at this shop.

After shopping, we walked around the district…..

This is what we ended up doing.

Manage to find Bape Store in HK.

Impressive shop design on the interior and exterior. On that season, didnt manage to get any nice t-shirt cuz non I like.

Went to indoor area Landmark as we were quite tired and need to find a place to sit down.

Indoor shops brand.
After the rest went back to Hotel, me, yeong and kenny were very lazy to walk back to change. We already wearing the whole new outfit,so went to find a place to have a coffee.
Ended up in Cafe Landmark. Which is a porch cafe area. The pricing is yeng.
The place is full with the rich ppl crowd. Most of them you can sense like they are just not ordinary ppl which is like owner of a huge corporation and the ladies or the tai tai there also the rich man’s wife or very successful corporate ladies.

Kenny Order the Gelato Chocolate’ charge at HKD 45(if not mistaken). A very normal taste chocolate ice-cream
‘Mint Tea’ ordered by Yeong which cost at HKD 40(if not mistaken)
and mind is ‘Stella Artois HKD 55 if not mistaken.
While we were seating and chatting, then suddenly I saw how come so many ppl taking pictures of a lady walking pass by on the other side. Then I said its a Hong Kong celebrity, we guess it was Cecelia Chung, and I grab my camera and went to that area also.
Then she was at a shop cant remember what name already preventing all customer from going into that shop and was told by the guard its a private shopping and have been book by a person.
I could not follow anymore and pass my camera to Kenny as my friend Jay had reach the cafe.

Bidding farewell to Jay as we are going over to dinner and will see her next trip already cuz I am flying back tomorrow. Glad to meet her after so long havent catch up. Will see you again in HK next round.

I like this advertisement bus stop. Tiffany… We are on the way walking to our dinner. A Japanese buffet which my friend said its very very nice and fresh.

 

Every one’s stomach is just so full, at first we thought of taking cab but then was told that it was 15 minutes walking there so I highly suggested we walked if not too full later drink..U know lah~ what is the after effect you will see.
CampbeIls Soup on the move. I just like how Hong Kong companies advertising method. The branding is so good.
This brand H & M was told that its one of the trendy brand in HK which is cheap and lots of things to buy. This is the biggest H&M shop which had 4 lvls. Cant wait to look what they offer. Will be coming here again for the shopping trip tomorrow which is at Central.


In the night what you can see mostly on the streets are the taxi’s. Its every where.


This is the first time I saw such a big Coach retailing outlet. Well decorated and also its 2-3 lvls.


Finally we had reach the bottom of the streets. This is how it looks like on the streets.

Gay Keong trying to show his gayness again. (just don understand) and the worst part is Steven also join him , SHItt!~

Not good when you trying to take pic with both of them. This is how it end up!

They are just so want to take pictures. Thought of taking candid but while the are walking, talking and looking around yet they still manage to look here instantly.
Certainly it look much better than Bangsar. The outlet design and the feel that they have is totally different.
Most of the bar were filled with ppl so we decided to choose this bar. Not much ppl and can accommodate all 30+ of us. So we come and we Conquer.. Wakakkaka
Definately, a beer you wouldn’t want to miss is the HoeGarden. We have been drinking Hoe Garden since from the very first day. Its just soooooooooo nice. Would taste too beer’ly yet had some sweet taste.
The night starting to go craze, with we came here also to celebrate our 2 very dearest friend B’day which is the 1 you see they had post under the street board. Gay Keong and Steven. So I was told to go order the strongest alcohol they have in the bar.
I ask the bar tender what do you have for the strongest, he told me, ‘Long Island Special’. That he will mix with 10 other different mixer. Cool cool, so this is what is put on the table.

Every one…Yammmm Sennnggg!~!~!~

Aquilah join us with the fruit mocktail which their name is very funny, ‘Virgin on the Beach’ and the other 1 I cant really remember.

The Birday song Begin. While the birday song begin, I was told to think and prank on them. While I was thinking I saw a dam good pic on the wall of the bar and ask the bar tender where to get that. He told me its already close. Then I thought of a similar idiot idea and was laughing all the way as I told Ellis about it she totally agree with me. So we run to the nearest 7-11 to grab the accessories.
Me and Ellis was laughing and getting so excited about it. Cant wait to see how’s their reaction.

So while we go back, I had to be Emcee for the night. So usually we don let go the Birday ppl so easily. Start off with POLE DANCING. Where is the pole. The pole is MANMADE!

As the crowd got craze, every one just want to tag in.

So both of them were blind folded with the red tissue.

Zheng zheng Zheng…………………….~~~~~

Would not review what we do with it. Let your imagination run wild and your creativity.

After the whole prank was over, they were treated with the usual trend now, Flaming Lamborghini, its a bit different compare to us which the bottle is not that high and the bar tender seems like do not know how to handle it.

The prank tools. Red and yellow.

One slurp finish all~

Then after this shot, ah Keong Kena parking outside the bar to take some fresh air. Could not even walk straight

So ladies and gentleman, that’s the end of it. we head back to sleep after that.

Prepare for Day 4…Shoppinnnngggggg~

My friends from Indonesia came over to visit me, so as usual for night supper what I usually bring my friends go is Murni. I feel that the food is nice and the price is reasonable. One bad thing about here is, if you are very hungry, this would not be a place I would recommend as sometimes, have to wait extremely long for your food to arrive. There are times that I waited for an hour.

Surprisingly for that night, the food came pretty instant. Just order and came around 3 mins later. Which I also kacau the guy, saying that ‘ eh eh, this is the orang cancel order 1 iziit?’ he laugh and walk away. But the food is warm and hot. Just out from the kitchen. Told my friend that she was lucky tonite that the food serve so fast. Maybe knowing that, there are tourist s eating, so priority 1st.

So this round decided to try the ‘Roti Dragon’ which waited for around 15 minutes cost RM10.
I have never tried out this before but knowing that it is one of the famous item there but but but when I cut open, it is like chicken pie full with filling.

The taste is extremely good, the sauce taste is abit creamy, like mushroom soup, the slices of ham in there is a lot and huge, the chicken cubes and slices also a lot. It is like a mixture of mushroom soup and chicken pie to make it like this. The sauce on top of the skin is tomato puree which is to make their spaghetti bolognaise which goes perfectly well with the serve. The nan skin is soft and warm.

By just eating one of this, is enough to kill you off. We eat it till the very last bite. With the price tag on this dragon, I feel its pretty reasonable for such a huge dragon and also ingredient in it.

After lunch at Ketam Village Steamboat before heading back to car, then my friend bought this I so called Pancake. Which they name ‘Kik Kok‘. Don know what is that.

The offering for the pancake is not bad. So the order is ‘Chocolate + Butter + Chocolate Rice’ RM2.50.
This was not my order, just look interesting and took up the pic which I found that the price that we paid is worth for it also as the banana the include it was quite alot Not like some other stalls might be half of the banana or a few slices..Ish~!~
Looks tempting for this 1.
This is our order. Mouth watering when I saw it.
Comes out to be a size of this which is similar to the rest of the pancake stalls out there.
I must say that the 1 that my friend order was it is rich of chocolate taste, with the chocolate rich and the butter taste everything is there. The best thing is it very crispy on the inside out. Like eating Kuih Kapit during CNY and can just listen to you bite that time ‘grak grak grak‘….Ish. thinking back will just go back and grab another one. If for weekend I believe it is gonna be pack of people as we went for weekdays also have to wait for 15 minutes already.
