Noodles, Gaozi & Mung Bean Glutinous Rice Dumplings

Once again we passed by this house on our morning walk. Again, we saw chickens on the concrete wall.

At first, there were 2 roosters on the concrete wall.
As we walked nearer, there were 2 roosters and 1 hen on the concrete wall.
~~~~~
Later that morning, we had breakfast with our friends.
I ordered 2 bowls of Hor Hee noodle. I had the glass noodle (tong fun), while my friend has the flat rice noodle (koay teow). This Hor Hee noodle is quite tasty.
Another friend ordered the pork noodle.
Hubby ordered the prawn noodle.
I ordered 6 pieces of gaozi for sharing, 1 eaten.
Over all, we enjoyed our breakfast.
This is my first visit to Restoran Ko Pi Tim in Taman Ipoh Timur.
~~~~~
Simple lunch at home
My friend gave us 2 glutinous rice dumplings from Penang.
This dumpling has more mung bean than glutinous rice, so it was not so filling. Those who likes lots of mung bean will enjoy this dumpling.


Enjoy prosperity whenever you can, and when hard times strike,
realize that God gives one as well as the other -
so that everyone will realize that nothing is certain in this life.
(Ecclesiastes 7:14, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. Hor Hee noodle is only found in Ipoh. It is noodle in tong choy (preserved veg) soup base, served with small fish balls, thinly-sliced fish cake, bean sprouts or shredded lettuce, and a fish wonton. Sliced bird’s eye chilli in light soya sauce dipping. Noodles used are usually kuey teow or glass noodle (tong fun).

  7. Nice variety of noodles. The rooster's photos remind me that the one  escaped from the chicken centre in our street and settled well in the house opposite to us and the neighbor drives the rooster but it refuses to get away and runs into the next house and comes back later. The bird stays on the tree and  makes noise which disturbs the sleep of the 90+ old man in that house. No one could catch it and it never comes out of the gate as if the neighbor owns it.

    2. Thanks for the details about what is inside a bowl of hor hee noodles but what two chinese words are hor hee and in which dialect?

      Delete
    3. I think "hor" means hor fun (Cantonese). I don't know about the "hee".

  12. The roosters are so carefree! Their owners are so at peace to let them freely roam about. Just like a kampung life. Is it a kampung?

  17. Photos very nice with the roosters

  18. Two roosters! Most of the time, my understanding is roosters do not get along, you can only have one in the yard with the hens.

    Such nice meals as you have!

  20. The chickens are just happily wandering around. Obviously they can escape if they want but I guess they don't.
