Terengganu – Restoran Stuff Crab Kemaman @ Kemaman
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Places to Eat, Terengganu | icon4 05 8th, 2011| icon3Comments Off on Terengganu – Restoran Stuff Crab Kemaman @ Kemaman

I had a great trip to Terengganu just last week for candat sotong (squid fishing) up at Marang, on the way back, we did a stop at Chukai in Kemaman for some nice seafood and of course the famous here are their stuffed crabs.

This round I decided to try a new shop and went to the all purplish Restoran Stuff Crab Kemaman. You can’t miss this shop, its on the main street with the other 3 stuffed crab place and its painted full purple.

Cold beer are available here at RM7.50 per can and it was a relieve for most as the weather is superbly hot. The owners are a busy lot and looks like a family business to me but they are still quite friendly and attending.

First up on our plates is the minced meat tofu, kind of something different, white tofu with saucy minced pork on top and very nice.  Next are some steamed crayfish and this is excellent as well as the crayfish (like shrimps actually) are fresh and tasty.

The vege we ordered is actually dried shrimp fried with cabbage, I was reluctant to order this as my mum cooks it all the time but they aunty told me don’t worry, their style will be different from my mum, so heck.. listen to aunty and order that… its stir fried till its quite soft and the a lot of onions are added too, ok la… but the presentation don’t look as good as it taste. We ordered another greens but it was a little oily.

The garlic prawns are yummy! Fried with garlic plus big and fresh, each of us had 1 of these! Each of us also had a stuffed crab each and I must say, the stuffed crab here is actually very good compare to the one I had before! Inside the crab meats mixture with some vege are sweet and tasty to my delight, good job!

The last to come are stir fried lala with chili padi… a little spicy but very nice and addictive, only wish the lala are bigger with more meat would have been much better.

The entire meal plus 6 cans of beers for 8 hungry guys comes up to about RM260.. if we minus off the beer should be about RM210 plus.

Melaka – Hee Kiaw Mee & Popiah @ Oriental Cafe
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Melaka (Malacca), Places to Eat | icon4 11 6th, 2010| icon3Comments Off on Melaka – Hee Kiaw Mee & Popiah @ Oriental Cafe

In the much quiet part of Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock away from the hustle and bustle of Jonker Walk lies a row of old shop near the old site of Tung Fang cinema. I was told by Miharu that Oriental Cafe’s stalls used to be in front of the old cinema until its being thorned down that all the stalls move opposite.

Oriental Cafe is a narrow but very long shop with 2 stalls right in front, one selling hee kiaw mee and another one selling popiah. The shop is clean and quite cooling as well although Melaka is superbly hot these few days.

We order our hee kiaw noodles and we usually preferred the dry version. The noodles cost RM3.00 each and it comes with the standard topping of hee kiaw of white and orange (fish paste), slices of bbq pork (char siew), fishballs and some taugeh at the bottom plus yummy pieces of fried pork lard. Chili sauce here is DIY, so bottles are available at the table for you to help yourself.

Noodles is pretty good, soup given is not too salty or oily plus great value at RM3.00 (for KL folks, for Melaka folks, its getting expensive already).

I saw the popiah stall as I walked in and told myself that I should not be greedy but as we got seated, Miharu’s neighbour was there at the same shop to da bao the popiah and she recommends highly on it. So we order one to try, the price per piece is RM2.00 which is standard anywhere in Melaka which I thought is pretty expensive.

Anyway, as per most popiah here, pork lard is a must and the one here is full of crispy fried pork lard as you bite into it! The aroma is good but not too overwhelming but I thought its just a bit dry, if there were slightly more sauce in it.

The food here is good and nice and we found out that the wan tan mee and chicken wings stalls from old Tung Fang cinema is just next door, so maybe we will be back for those the next round ;).
