Colonel Rice Combo from KFC

Anyone know about the new combo set meal from KFC? For me, I wouldn’t know about it if not because of my friends who wanna go there for supper last night. From far, can see the banner stating “Kita Mesti Makan Nasi!” (We Must Have Rice) lol.

Frankly speaking… the picture doesn’t attract my interest to try it at all… hahahah. Only one of us ordered it… “Try maa” he said. I choose to go for my usual Zinger meal :p

As we unfold the lid covering the rice, I yelled in heart “Yay, lucky I didn’t order this!” Opss… The so called flavoured rice, came with bits of raisins and came with coleslaw (no pic), 2 pieces of chicken (OR or HS) and gravy (the peppery gravy from whipped potato lor).

Em… looks worse after the gravy is added on it. We each person try a small scoop of the rice and agreed that it’ll be a history soon LoL. The rice is not soggy but stick together in lumps and the gravy… is ok but I personally don’t think it goes well with the rice. Chicken – normal lor, nothing special about it. The quality in KFC seems dropped below average… except for cheezy wedges. Even the chicken in my Zinger is not spicy at all and too dry. Better go for McD’s quarter pounder… haha..

‘Tong Sui Kai’, Ipoh

This would be one of my favourite place to go for hawker food in Ipoh. Literally known as Tong Sui Kai (Dessert Street) by the locals, it’s located in front of SRJK (C) Sam Tet, off Jalan Sultan Idris.

My reunion with two ex-schoolmates last night was certainly a great occassion although we were seated at the wrong place (one of them arrive earlier and grabbed a seat according to his preference), so there goes my mixed fruit ice dessert and ‘yut kwong hor’ (fried kuey teow with raw egg). But it’s ok, our dinner turns out to be quite good anyway.

My all time favourite, ais kacang with ice cream, RM2.00. This is among the few spots that still serve it with ice cream in Ipoh. Love it with plenty of kidney beans, peanuts and jellies.

Char Kuey Teow with yellow mee, prawns and egg. My friend “sapu” them immediately as he’s quite hungry at that time, so I didn’t try it. But from his enjoyment, I guess it should be good.

Kangkung Sotong. The sauce was a bit watery but still good.

Blanched cockles with chilli sauce. The two of them almost “sapu” all while I just watch them crack the shell and poped them into the mouth. LOL

My recommendation – Egg Skin Popiah. Priced slightly higher at RM1.60 per piece, this is a must have snack. Both the fillings and skin were full of flavours.

Normal popiah, RM1.20. Good but the egg skin version tastes better of course!

The stall selling popiah is located opposite Tong Sui Kai, inside a food court called Man U (gosh, someone really have the passion for Manchester United, I guess).

Other surprises you would find at Tong Sui Kai include chee cheong fun with mushroom and gei ji gravy, beef noodles, “lolo”, wan tan mee, and various types of desserts such as barley gingko with fu chuk, mo mo cha cha and black sesame.

Penang Foodie Guide Book

Few months ago, while flipping some mags at the office, I came across the section where the editor introduce some worth-reading books. One of them is about KL’s eateries (too bad I forgotten the name! I think it’s something “licking… tummy.. KL”.. hahaha) and I said to myself: I must go and get it!

At MPH, I found the book but to my disappointment, the author offers only mere description of the establishments and there’s no single picture in it! Duhh… I flipped a few pages and put it back on the shelf.

Determined to at least get a book there, I begin to scan the title of the books before I saw this:

Rasa Rasa Penang – A Visitor-friendly Guide to its Food. Yay! Seems like it’s my lucky day afterall LOL. When it comes to Penang food, I admit that I have the slightest idea where and which is nice.

Nice pictures of the eateries with short description, business hour, contact, address and location map. Very comprehensive! Priced RM28, I instantly took one home :P
