We decided to go Hadyai for an overnight trip.  It took us almost 3 hours from an early start at 6am.  Why an early start you ask? Well… this would give us ample time for more shopping and eating…  and shopping.  We traveled in a-8 seater van from Penang, Malaysia and even had few stops […]

Hello all, just returned from a long vacation.  I’ve a lot to post from the holidays.  So, bear with me as I filter my photos.  Once of places we visited was Bali.  I admit that I was reluctant to go (eg. terrorist threats etc) but “what the heck”.   No regrets. One of the many restaurants […]

Jade Kingdom

13, Jan 2009

If you are looking for good Malaysian food (besides my mom’s cooking of course… :D), either Nyonya or Hawkers food? Look no further… you got to try Jade Kingdom. The owner Chef is a Malaysian, sure guarantees to get great dishes, right? This little restaurant could sit around 40 seating. So, be sure to make […]

Easy East

27, Nov 2008

Strange name but this little restaurant easily sits approximately 40 people.  Not many Chinese restaurants along Burwood Highway but a few pizza eateries.  I spotted a Sri Lankan restaurant across Easy East.  This restaurant owner chef serves an exceptional braised duck.  You’ll need to pre-order the duck a day before.     Most of dishes were […]

Phu Vinh Restaurant

1, Nov 2008

(without soup) (with soup) We wanted to try something different today for lunch.  Instead of the usual Pho that we normally have, this was more satisfying.  We had this noodle combination in Footscray (next to Footscray Market).  You can have it either with or without soup and your choice of egg or rice noodle. Phu […]

Authentic Thai Taste

Last night, friends treated us for dinner at Authentic Thai Taste.  Yes, very authentic indeed.  Even the utentils and crockery were traditional.  The usual Tom Yum soup (haven’t had that for long time).  I was impressed. Papaya Salad This was refreshing.. shredded papaya, snake beans, tomatoes. You could taste the fish sauce too. Tom Yum Soup (nice but I […]

We lub Kimchi Hut

13, Sep 2008

Another post of Kimchi Hut. We can’t decide where to go for lunch yesterday… Kimchi Hut just popped into our minds. I think the owners knows us well now. (our 5th?).  By the way, they changed their menus too. Mungbean Pancake (Kimchi & Pork) – this was so nice and crispy, you could taste the […]

Bun Bo Hue

Whatta beautiful day today.  I guess Spring is approaching.  We decided to go to Gleadell Street Market again.  Gosh! Pineapples for a dollar each.  Bargain!  We bought ten… will have to do some pineapple tarts later in the week. Later, we had lunch at Richmond.  Yes, again… food is cheap at Little Vietnamese town.  This […]

First Taste

We had lunch at First Taste today.  This is one of the 3 franchise.  I’ve been here many times and the food is always consistent.  What did we have?  Hmmm… first course, Ginseng Black Chicken Soup. Dumpling Prawns with egg noodles Preserved Chinese Cabbage and Fish Fillet with rice (by the way, the best part […]

Bamboo Chopsticks

9, Aug 2008

Looking for some home cook meal?  This little place is where you’ll find a great meal.  We’ve been going there for years.  The chef/owner even grows his own vegetables.  That’s how fresh his dishes are.  This place is also ever popular with take-away. Anyhow, we had 3 dishes for 5 people (lol, small eaters). This is […]
