DINNER AT RESTORAN J.J.FATT, LAWAN KUDA BARU, GOPENG, PERAK.

Last Sunday night, our friends came to pick us up from our house and we had a leisure ride to Lawan Kuda in Gopeng. We started about 6 pm and to avoid the after office peak heavy traffic on the main road, our friend drove through the kampung (village) roads. It is the longer route but we didn't mind as we were not in any hurry and it was a nice cool evening.

Our friends have tasted the Snakehead fish herbal soup and they enjoyed it very much and they invited us to try out the dishes at this restaurant. Thanking LCK & wife for a yummy dinner and good fellowship.
We ordered one fresh Snakehead fish for cooking 2 dishes.
Dish #1 - boneless fish slices stir-fried with ginger slices and spring onions.

Dish #2 - after removing the meaty part, the rest of the fish was used to cook herbal soup in a clay pot. This dish was advertised in the local Chinese newspaper.

My bowl of herbal fish soup.
Steamed Yam with Pork Belly dish (kau yoke).

Stir fried sweet potato leaves with garlic.

While waiting for the food, many customers took advantage of the free wi-fi.

Newspaper cutting pasted on the outside wall near the entrance.

Two air-conditioned shop lots.

This was taken just after we got down from our car. The sky looked like threatening to rain. It started to drizzle after our dinner.

This photo was taken from the back seat where I was seated while the car was moving. I love the tall swaying coconut trees.

All the trees of the field will know that I the LORD

bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall.

I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish.

I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.

(Ezekiel 17:24, New International Version-NIV)

  3. It rains every evening here starting this week. The scary part is the lightning and thunder. I hate driving in such condition.

    Yummy and nutritious dishes especially the snake head fish. I cannot remember I taste this fish before or not. Maybe I did. Haha.

    1. Mun, thanks so much for pointing out my mistake. It was not after office peak traffic, it was some heavy traffic at the main road that my friend wanted to avoid ...lol...
