CRAVING FOR HOT POT SOUP.

My foodie friends and I met up with our ex-colleagues for lunch on Friday. It has been quite a while since we last had lunch together. It was not a pre-planned but a last minute decision to meet up.

Initially we couldn't decide on where to meet or what to eat. Two of our foodie friends had the craving for hot pot soup and that's how we ended up in Restoran Fong Wei Ge Hot Pot at Jalan Veerasamy (in front of Touch Wedding Studio and near to Pusing Public Seafood Restaurant), Ipoh.
This is my 3rd visit to this restaurant.

On my first visit, I was introduced to the hot pot soup by my ex-colleagues who were there before. We only ordered the hot pot fish soup. None of us were really hungry, but we wanted some piping hot soup and time for chit chatting.

On my second visit, hubby and I brought some friends for dinner.

On our 2nd visit, it was evening and we sat under the open sky. For the first 2 visits, I have totally forgotten about taking the food photos.

The previous night's (Thursday night) heavy downpour has helped to clear some of the haze and we were able to see some white cloud while driving to meet our friends.

While waiting for our food, we occupied ourselves with our hand phones and cameras. Long time no meet, so plenty of exchanging of news!

One for the album and of course for our blog post!

Here comes our soup, with the portable gas stove to keep it piping hot. Waiting for it to boil.

A boiling pot full of edible treasures. The main items - fish head, deep fried bean curd sheets, yam, Chinese cabbage, enoki mushroom, etc. I am sure there were more than these items.
Bitter gourd egg omelette.

Deep fried Nam Yee chicken wings. I like this dish. (Deep fried chicken wings marinated with red fermented bean curd).

Pan fried minced pork with salted fish patty. This dish goes well with white rice or plain porridge. Total cost of lunch inclusive of rice and drinks = MYR 77.60.

A funny looking tree trunk attached with light bulbs. In the evening the lights will up the area or to attract customers.

God's laws are perfect. They protect us, make us wise,

and give us joy and light. God's laws are pure, eternal, just.

(Psalm 19:7-9, New International Version-NIV)

  7. That pot of goodness would be nice for a raining & cooling night. Anything with salted fish (fish patty) sure makes an appetising dish. I saw 2 horns on your head, hahaha!!!...trademark of Reana Claire.
