Home Cooked Tom Yam With Prawns And Coconut Milk

Last Saturday we had breakfast appointment with our friends. Our friends will be picking us up at about 8am but we were up early as usual. No morning walk but I busied myself sweeping the porch area and watering my plants.

Breaking of dawn at 6:54 am.
Sunrise at 7:15am
Sunrise at 7:48am.
Self-propagated Cockscombs.
They grow and flower the whole year round.

Instead of going out to Ipoh town, we went to Menglembu area for our breakfast. This time we chose Restoran Meng Meng Kee in Taman Bandar Baru, Menglembu.
My friend and I ordered this noodle. It is rice noodle (lai fun) served with minced meat, long beans, fried bean curd sheet, beansprouts, and soy sauce. Next time, I will ask for the spicy version which should taste even yummier.
Extra fried stuffed bean curd sheets soaked in plain broth.
~~~~~
We also had lunch appointment with the same friends because they too want to try the assam laksa in Restoran MAN CT in Taman Ipoh Jaya.
Assam Laksa with stuffed ingredients.

For dinner, I cooked Tom Yam with prawns and coconut milk. I need to finished the tom yam paste in my fridge.
Prawns Tom Yam with coconut milk.
I added in carrot, onions, and home grown eggplants.
We each had a plate of steamed rice to go with the tom yam.
If I had steamed more rice, we would be tempted to eat more.


Whenever you feel tempted to do something bad,
you should not say, "God is tempting me."
Evil cannot tempt God,
and God himself does not tempt anyone.

  14. Your dinner of prawns and home grown brinjals is the best! So tasty! Good that Ipoh is still green. So did your friends go home after breakfast and then make another trip out to pick you all up for lunch or meet at the lunch place?

    1. You can buy the ready made paste that comes in bottles from Thailand. I bought the dove brand. If you don't want to use the paste, you can also cook tom yam with clear broth using natural ingredients like chili padi, serai, lengkuas, lime, etc.
