Last night, I went for my colleague’s wedding dinner at East Ocean Restaurant, Menglembu with my boss’ mom and dad. East Ocean – we called it “Tong (East) Hoi (Ocean) And for your information, Menglembu is about 15-20mins away from Ipoh city centre (but about 1/2 hour from my house!) If you buy the local packed groundnuts, usually you will see the word “Kacang Tanah Menglembu” (Menglembu Groundnuts)…..
Ok, back to the topic. Each tables supposed to occupy 10 people but ours only 7. So, that means there’s extra portion for all of us!
As usual, first dish is the so-called “lang pun”, one of my favourite dish because each restaurant came out with different types of “dishes mixing”. This big plate consists of “Kung Pou” Chicken Cubes with Braised Peanuts (left), Crabmeat Omelette with Crackers (right), Dry Butter Milk Fried Fish Fillets (centre) and Curried Minced Seafood with Mix Veggies in Crab Shell (both above and bottom).
I must admit that everything on the plate is very good especially the spicy Kung Pou chicken and minced seafood in crab shell. The chicken is tender, well-marinated and goes well with the peanuts. And you’ll need to dig the crab shell for the ingredients (Ah.. I don’t like seafood but this is different lol) and I had 2 servings of this
Braised Chicken with Ginger. That’s a huge portion for 7 people! Ops, I mean 6 people (ginger is my nemesis). So, I didn’t try it but my boss’ dad commented that it’s very good.
*Sorry Carrien as I didn’t take any photos of you since my phone camera is not suitable for the job. Anyway, wish you and your hubby “Bak Tau Dou Lou, Weng Kit Tong Sam”!
