Hor Hee Or Fish Balls Noodle & Prawn Noodle

When we eat the same food too often, we can get bored. We have been limiting ourselves to the food found in our area and after a few months, we started to think of food which we don't have in our area. So for this particular morning, after we have finished our morning walk, we drove to Menglembu.

Hor Hee or Fish Balls Noodle for hubby (on the left)
Prawn Noodle for me (on the right).
Both without their soup.
Our breakfast.
Both noodles with their soup added.
Since we can't go to Penang Island for Prawn Noodle or Hokkien Mee, this prawn noodle will do to satisfy my craving. Instead of pork slices, they give fish cake slices.
I harvested the above from my garden: angled luffa, deep purple brinjal and some green brinjals. I gave the angled luffas to a friend and my sis, and kept the brinjals for myself.
Later in the morning, a friend came over to give me some of her home grown mulberries and banana.
Pisang awak has soft texture and not very sweet compared to other types of banana.

Linking to Monday mural.

Blessed is the Lord,
for he has shown me that his never-failing love
protects me like the walls of a fort!
(Psalm 31:21, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. I also have a pot of mulberry but they are not very productive and the fruits, if any, are very small. So sad.

    I would go for the fish balls noodles. I love noodles in clear soup.

    Wowwwww!!! Huge prawns!!! You don't get to see such huge ones at the shops and stalls here unless you pay extra.

    1. Saw your comment in Claire's blog on eating tapioca leaves at the Filipino place in Sacramento. I used to cook it quite often this way:

      ...but I forgot to add the serai (lemon grass) that day
      or you can add pumpkin - very nice too:

    2. Only 1 stall is selling good quality and big prawns like these. I bought 1 packet worth RM50. I divide the prawns for 2 meals.

    3. When I was working, I used to see my colleagues eating the tapioca leaves as ulam or cooked as lemak dish. So far I haven't tried any of them. The one you showed in your post looks delicious.

  9. I always leave here hungry. Prawns are SO expensive where I live. You are so lucky they are accessible there.

    I LOVE that wall of murals. They must be a real treat to see each one of them up close. Thanks so much for sharing them and for the close-up of the one, Nancy.

    1. These sea water prawns are more expensive. The farmed ones are cheaper but they are not as good as the sea water prawns.

  11. Love both noodles as I find noodles easier to eat than rice. Do you know what hor hee means and what dialect is that in? To me, when I hear hor hee, I think of fish paste wantons that are quite difficult to find in kl, easier to find in Ipoh.

    1. Sorry Mun, I have no idea what hor hee means. Besides the normal fish balls, hor hee has a type of dumpling shaped like a disc and that is my favourite.

      Delete
    2. The dumpling shaped like a dish is known as fish paste wanton, that's what I was told. To me hor hee means this dish shaped dumpling.

      Delete
    3. Yes, only hor hee fun has this special dish shaped dumpling and sometimes I will ask to add extra one.

    1. Thank you, Iris. I was sent to an English school. I can only understand a few words of Chinese (Mandarin) and I can speak dialects like Cantonese and Hokkien.
