Fine dining. Mention it to people and most of them will think of posh restaurants and professional chefs. Basically it means you have to eat out if you want fine dining, the whole works……plating, flavors, etc.
Well, there are always exceptions in this world. My home is a perfect example. My wifey (guess you can sense this is written by a proud hubby) is a good cook. She’s been labelled as the LOVE CHEF by friends and suggestions from all around to setup a restaurant.
Oh ya, Stevaunne’s Menu……..this is a collection of all of her recipes. I will share some of her creations in later posts but this short post is about recent interview by a renowned local media aka TheStar. They heard of her wonderful recipes and wanted to know more. After understanding Stevaunne’s Menu better, they decided to feature her and of course her food.
The entire experience was priceless. It is not everyday a home cook…..herein my home referred to as home chef gets featured in a renowned media. More so, not every home serves food the fine dining standard in every aspect — flavors, presentation, etc. By the way, did I mention that she’s self trained? Yes she is.
So you will pardon me for sounding a little boastful of my wife. She absolutely deserves it. Thus far the reviews have been great all around, including families and friends for those who had the opportunity to taste her Stevaunne’s Menu
Avatar land…why this name? Somehow passing by Ipoh, it occurred to us that this land is a potential shoot area for Avatar. Yes, it may not be as spectacular as Zhangjiajie but it is beautiful nonetheless.
Our journey to the north took us past this land called Ipoh. We have heard much about the wonderful yummy food here but never quite made an excursion there to experience it first hand. There’s always a first time and today is this day 🙂
Upon the recommendation of our foodie expert friends, we visited this old place called Kong Heng. It is located in the old part of Ipoh town and is renowned for it’s yummylicious food.
If you are an avid photographer, then remember to bring along your cameras. It is not only to snap the awesome food but also the surrounding buildings. It’s almost like a rundown heritage building but still maintained well enough and even houses a few retail outlets including contemporary Plan B restaurant.
Back to the food. What is good here you may ask. Well, we tried just about everything and here are our favorites…
The food here is nothing short of amazing. The crowds just kept coming. The white coffee was full of flavor. Sorry folks, the white coffee in KL does not even come close. The steam chicken drumstick scores a perfect 10! The meat was so tender and smooth. Truly the best ever I’ve tasted. It was so good that we ordered it twice 🙂 The lady boss of the stall was so humble when we complimenter her food and merely commented that we arrived at the right time when the chicken was just freshly prepared.
Then there was the beansprouts, popiah and caramel custard. Just about patron orders the coffee and caramel custard. Have the custard cold and it will tingle your tastebuds.
Here’s a pic of two very excited and blessed foodies…hehe
With our tummy filled and senses tingling, we continued our journey north, all the time planning and waiting for our next trip.
