Seafood Lunch At Makanan Jeti, Simpang Ampat, Penang.

This is a continuation of yesterday's post where we arrived at the seafood eatery named Restoran Makanan Laut Jeti or Jetty Seafood Restaurant at 1249, Bagan Bukit Tambun, 1411 Simpang Ampat. It is located just next to the Simpang Ampat jetty.
 These are my foodie team waiting for this slow auntie to click her camera.
 Passing our time taking snapshots while waiting for the food to be served.
 Fishing boats next to the restaurant.
 It is a long weekend and a long break for the fishermen.
 Good thing the restaurant still has enough of seafood supply to serve the customers.
 But we were disappointed when told that crabs were not available.
 For starter, we ordered this plate of blanched or boiled Snails @ MYR 10.60
This is my first time attempting to eat these snails.
 I started with this Spiky Snail. Used a sharp bamboo pick to pull out the succulent flesh.
 Next, I tried this. Another type of snail. The shell was not the smooth type but slightly hairy.
 This is the underside of a cooked snail.
I am posting all these photos for sweet memories.
 Again, use the bamboo pick to pull out the succulent flesh. It came out easily.

 Dip the succulent flesh into the chili sauce before eating.
 A closer look...notice the piece of hard lid (operculum) attached to the flesh? This cannot be eaten.
 3rd types of sea snails I have eaten that day.
All the flesh of the 3 different types of snails tasted almost the same.
 Oyster omelette @ MYR 18.02
We also had Clams (Lala) but no photo to show @ MYR 19.08
 Spicy stir fried potato leaves with fresh prawns @ MYR 8.48
Teochew style Steamed Grouper fish @ MYR 76.32
The fish was very fresh and delicious.

Total cost of lunch for 4 people including 4 rice (s) & herbal drink.
MYR 148.60 (approx. 34.61 USD) with 6% GST included.

Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by a fisherman
- he casts a net into the water and gathers in fish of every kind,
valuable and worthless. When the net is full,
he drags it up onto the beach and sits down and
sorts out the edible ones into crates and throws the others away.

Impromptu Trip To Simpang Ampat, Penang.

My friends have been talking of making a one day trip on Tuesday but nothing was decided until Monday night. Thinking that the trip will not take place, I booked an appointment with my hairdresser for Tuesday evening. Just after I have booked the appointment, a message came through to inform that the trip was confirmed. We were to meet in a friend's house at 10 am next morning (Tuesday). I decided not to cancel my appointment with the hairdresser, hoping I will be back on time because I badly needed a haircut.
Praise the Lord! It was a bright and beautiful morning.
We started our day trip at about 10.30 am. 
Initially, our plan was to go south to Genting Highlands. Anticipating heavy traffic and traffic jams due to the exodus of holiday makers after the long weekends, we decided to go north to Simpang Ampat.
 On our earlier to Penang on the 10th June, we stopped at Simpang Ampat to enjoy the fresh seafood. Little did I know that 15 days later, I was back here again with my friends.
This time, we were taken to another seafood restaurant, which is a bit further from the previous place we went to. 
Simpang Ampat is a small town known for its reasonably priced fresh seafood. You can find many seafood restaurants here.
Our friend drove us to the jetty and Makanan Laut Jeti or Jetty Seafood is the place she wanted to recommend to us. It is located right next to the jetty. 
My friends hurrying to find some shade from the hot midday sun.
Three beauties in the cool shade while the camera person under the hot sun. Lol!
We were hungry by now and looking forward to taste the fresh yummy seafood.

I will be posting the food photos in tomorrow's post.

Dinner At A New Place Called Kopitiam 1 Curve.

Last Friday, I had lunch with friends at Restoran Yum Yum and we had a satisfying lunch. You can click here to visit the post. I came straight home after lunch because I had something to do. I was just settling down to finish what I needed to do when I took out my hand phone to check for any new messages.

I had a voice message from a friend wanting to know whether we were able to join them for dinner that evening. Before I could confirm with this friend, she had already called hubby to confirm. Our friends had a new place to introduce to us and it is Kopitiam 1 Curve.
Steamed Red Tilapia with savoury sauce. Every place has their unique sauce and this one is also very flavourful too.
Deep fried pork marinated with red fermented bean curd (lam yee). Chili sauce for dipping.
Volcano Eggs - Fried eggs topped with sweet sour minced pork sauce. Children would love this dish.
Tender potato leaves stir fried with salted fermented bean curd (foo yee).
All the above dishes are very appetizing and great for eating with white rice.
Cost of dinner for 4 people including 4 small portion rice,
MYR 59.00 (approx. 13.75 USD)
Kopitiam 1 Curve, a few shop away from Restoran Huang Tin,
Lengkok Desa Rishah 1, Desa Rishah, Ipoh.

Fathers Day Dinner At Restoran Wah Xing, Jalan Pasir Puteh, Ipoh.

Our children have all gone back to the city to work and I decided to call my friends for dinner to celebrate Fathers Day. It was a Sunday, a rest day for all of us, both the working and retired. Nowadays, it is a trend for many families to eat out on weekends and many restaurants or eateries will be packed especially it being a Fathers Day.

Hubby and I were here for dinner exactly 2 weeks earlier. The food here is good and the price reasonable. We were at the restaurant at about 6.50 pm and the place was packed. After waiting for a short while, we were able to secure a table for 5 people. Once we were seated, our dinner orders were taken. Service was fast, even with the crowd, we didn't have to wait long before the dishes started to arrive at our table.
 Their signature dish - Foh Yim Pai Kuat - a dish you must order.
Deep fried pork rib with sticky sauce.
Steamed Red Tilapia with savoury sauce.
Deep fried tofu, crispy on the outside and silky soft on the inside. Drizzled with garlic oil, soy sauce and topped with fried dried shrimps and scallion.
 Deep fried eggplant (brinjals) and long beans with garlic, dried shrimp and preserved salted radish (choy poh).
 Stir fried water spinach with prawn paste (belacan).
Total cost of dinner for 5 people costs MYR 76.70 (approx. 17.88 USD)
This included 6 % GST, white rice and Chinese tea for 5 people. 
This restaurant is a few shops away from Eatime or Trishaw Laksa shop. Very near to the Shell Station on the main road of Jalan Pasir Puteh.

Once we finished dinner, we quickly vacate our table for other customers. We then sent our friend back to her house and we stay awhile to chit chat with her.

It is still working on time.

As you come to him, the living Stone - rejected by humans

but chosen by God and precious to him - you also, like living stones,

are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood,

offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
