Sambal Petai (Stinky Beans) For Dinner At Restoran Sun Winfat, Ipoh.

Whenever we meet up with our friends, the topic on where and what to eat will somehow makes its way into our conversation sooner or later. Our city, Ipoh is a food haven and most of us including me and my foodie friends love to eat and try out new places. Speaking for myself, I am not a very picky eater. So if ever you get to hear me complain about a certain food that is lousy (which is not often), trust me, it is really lousy! Lol!

Talking about food, today's post is about our dinner at Restoran Sun Winfat, near the Silibin Roundabout, Ipoh.  Hubby likes this place because of the Sambal Petai dish. For your info, hubby is also not a very picky eater. Whenever we come here for dinner, for sure he will order Stinky Beans unless it is not available. Stinky Beans is "Petai" in Malay and "Chau Tau" in Cantonese. This is just an average non air-con restaurant and nothing extra ordinary about their dishes. To us the food is good and their prices are quite reasonable and not too far from home. I will be sharing on 2 yummy dinners taken 3 months apart. 

1st Evening - Simple Dinner for 2.
It was a lovely evening at about 7 pm. The first thing I did after I got out of the car was to take this snapshot of this beautiful sunset. A gorgeous art piece in the sky!
Those at the bottom of the mountain saw the awesome sight:

the glory of the Lord on the mountaintop looked like a raging fire.

(Exodus 24:17, The Living Bible-TLB)
 Hubby's dinner - white rice with Sambal Petai & Minced Meat.
 My dinner - Sambal Fried Rice with prawns and egg.
That evening my taste buds had no craving for Sambal Petai but for fried rice.

2nd Evening - Dinner with friends.
The whole day was gloomy with gray sky but the weather was nice and cool. 
 Took this snapshot at 6.45 pm. No beautiful sunset shot.
We ordered the following dishes for 4 people.
Sambal Petai with minced meat and onions.
This dish is best eaten with white rice.
 Savoury Chicken with dried chilies in clay pot.
Another dish best eaten with white rice.
Stir fried Lettuce with fermented bean curd (fu yee).

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

In that day, a person will keep alive a young cow and two goats.

And because of the abundance of the milk they give,

there will be curds to eat.

All who remain in the land will eat curds and honey.

(Isaiah 7:21-22, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. The beans are not stinky when we eat them. They only smell after being digested and passed out the other end.

    1. I have heard of people having diarrhea after eating petai but seldom for me. I suppose some people are more sensitive to its cleansing properties. Probably people like me has a more stubborn digestive system. Ha ha!

  23. Again, beautiful photos and great food. My wife is suffering from hay fever and we went to a place that served pho today. She had chicken and I had the beef and it was delicious. I had to eat one of the peppers and it took a while for the heat to die down.

  26. Ipoh is such an amazing place to find good food - I wish I had a local guide when I visited last.

    1. There are many good eateries in and around Ipoh. It all depends on which part of Ipoh and the type of food you are looking for. The list is endless but also depends on what suit our taste buds.

  27. I'd have petai more often if it's not for the lingering smell. Can't have it during working days.
