Dinner @ Kok Thai Restaurant, Ipoh


















Whenever we dine out at this restaurant, we will surely order this dish...Kok Thai's signature dish...sorry, I am a yellow banana and they give fancy name to the dish. Many times I had ordered this, I still can catch the name of this dish.....I have to describe the dish to the lady Captain.... " you know you have this dish with the roll meat cured in wine and served in slices with a layer of pickled jellyfish as base "  then the captain will nod her head and say..... " oh this dish is called .................. " till today I still cannot remember the name of this dish  "   LOL!  don't even ask the rest of the Piggies...they are worse than me when it comes to the Cantonese language.  We only know that we love this dish and I wish I could make this myself....then I can renamed it to a name I can remember easily :p  And we have to either go there early to eat or order this dish in advance. Once , we went there at 8pm and this dish was sold out !  This dish comes with this garlic, chilli and shallots in vinegar....beautiful sauce ! I don't think I can replicate this sauce....look simple but the taste is awesome ! I really dont know what vinegar they used...simply delicious with this awesome " rolled meat dish " :)   You can read on to see what we had for my birthday dinner :p   Birthday lunch at David's Diner , Greentown Business Center and a simple birthday dinner at Kok Thai Restaurant , Ipoh  :)   Thanks Wild Boar for a scrumptious birthday treats !!!!!  The Piggies and I were well fed on that special day :p   And you know what,  the apron was in the washing machine ! yea.....rest day for Momsie Elin ....she deserved the day off , sat back and rested her trotters LOL!

















Love this dish ....the rolled meat was well flavored.   I think they most probably soaked the rolled meat in wine....I must try to replicate this dish.   I have seen the picture of rolled meat soaked in wine in some chinese magazine but becoz I am Mandarin illiterate , so did not purchase the magazine.....I hope some food blogger will put it up some day. Meanwhile , whe I crave for it..I will just eat at Kok Thai and describe this dish again with my famous line...." you know you have this dish......................................................................  " LOL! my Piggies laughed at me each time I goes like this..hand language and etc.....




love the skin......and the crunchy jellyfish....the sauce with sesame seeds
was a perfect sauce for the rolled meat :)


















this is the birthday noodles ...a must for the chinese when celebrating birthday
the long noodles signify longevity :), 
stir fried with bbq meat and chicken breast strips...another one
of their signature dish !


















steamed free range chicken with a special sauce......
cannot remember the name of this 
steamed chicken with a spicy sweet sauce......
I just nodded each time the captain describe the dish........LOL!  
I took the picture when we almost finished the dish.....
^^)


















this is the veggie dish that Piggy Jo loves...
.four types of greens stir fried with
shrimps sambal...hot and spicy...
this dish in cantonese is  'Sei Tai Tin Wong ' 
something like that...* eye balls rolled up
hahaha I am not good in remembering dishes, 
I only know how to eat :p
consists of lady finger, egg plant, asparagus and french beans


















this is my favorite fish dish...steamed Red Tilapia with
salted veggie ( ham choy) and tofu, tomato and chilli and sour plum
' Teochew Steamed Red Tilapia '


We had a yummy dinner, thanks to Wild Boar :)
