Steamed Tilapia With Koay Teow & Home Grown Cucumbers

Have  you eaten steamed fish with noodle before? I haven't. When this eatery suggested this dish to us, twice we rejected. It was only after a friend recommended it to us saying that it is very good, only then we got curious and wanted to try. The opportunity came when I was not in the mood to cook, so we decided to have this dish for special dinner.

We drove out early, about 5:30pm to Restoran WSF 33, Jalan Bharu (parallel to Jalan Tokong), Taman Hoover, Ipoh. We prefer to eat and leave early to avoid the dinner crowd.
If you have been following my blog, you would have noticed that lately we have been here quite often to try out the different types of steamed fish. This is the way to encourage hubby to eat fish.
Part of their menu.
We couldn't get our friends to join us since it was a last minute decision, so we ordered only 2 dishes without rice.
Blanched vegetable (choy fah).
Steamed Tilapia (smaller size) with koay teow (flat rice noodle). The koay teow was separated into 2 portions; one on each side of the fish.
So instead of rice, we had koay teow (noodle) with the fish and vegetable. Ipoh is known for its soft, silky koay teow. For those who love fish and koay teow, you will enjoy this dish. Hubby paid RM37 for the 2 dishes.

From my garden.
These are my cucumber plants.
Cucumbers harvested from my garden.
Instead of buying fresh coconut water, I have been blending cucumber juice for hubby and I. Sometimes we have it plain, sometimes I add some salted sour plum (assam boi) to the cucumber juice for extra flavour.
Some of the produce from my garden.
The extra will be shared with friends and neighbours.

  6. I can't remember having tilapia steamed, usually deep fried...and of course, we never had kway teow with it. My old landlady in Kuching in the 70's once cooked mee sua with ikan lumek and it was so delicious - never tried cooking my own, cannot stand the invisible bones in the fish.

    1. We seldom have fried tilapia, usually steamed. If fried, it is usually topped with Thai sauce.

  7. I have eaten steamed fish slices with kway teow but not whole Steamed fish like whole Tilapia With Koay Teow. Doesn't the bone make it complex to eat? Love your Home Grown Cucumbers.

  13. I am glad there were pictures of the food on the menu, because I don't read Chinese. Haha. I tend to like pasta more than rice, so your meal would appeal to me. Nice bounty from your garden!

  21. Cucumber plants are rich in green, and your harvest from your garden is wonderful, and your sharing with neighbors reminds me of one of us who used to share bananas and stalks from their homegrown with us. Have a nice day
