September must be the peak birth month, where we are having a hive of birthday celebrations for the September babies every Friday/Saturday since the first week of September. Here’s another post on birthday celebration, a whole lot of pictures on food, drinks and peeps (dedicated to the team) to feast your eyes.
Spare, bright, and clean, De Foodland is hard to miss with the huge green signboard and red neon crabby. Famous with its 31 styles of crab dishes, both shop lots are filled with patrons licking the sauces off their fingers. Ten Ten and Arina invited us for a gathering cum celebration dinner over here.
All the dishes are pre-ordered by the sweet couple where we just have to sit down, get set and attack. The rich and velvety yam basket, fried to a golden crisp, contains chicken fillets and assorted greens was delicious.
Scramble egg with tomato, as simple as it sounds, is nothing fantastic. Surprisingly I get all nostalgic once I took a bite; mum would usually cook this for a simple lunch. I’m so glad that I’m back to Ipoh now and having easy access to mum’s cooking anytime.
Claypot braised bean–curd dish is attractive with brightly coloured vegetables and beans accompanying the bean curd and mushrooms. Another addition to the table is Kam Heong La La. The la la is pathetically small but the accompanying gravy is aromatic with a generous amount of dried shrimps, chilies and curry leaves. The Guinness stout pork rib is beautifully coated in a delicious, thick, sticky and caramelized sauce but the meat is a tad too dry. The succulent fried chicken fillet in Thai style is accompanied by a tangy sweet and sour sauce and I love to pick on the shredded green mangos and onions.
How can you not ordering crabs at De Foodland? Out of the 31 styles of cooking crabs, some in a bizarre and eccentric way, we have decided to play save by having the Crabs in Butter Sauce. The big fat crabbies are coated with a layer of sinfully rich and creamy butter sauce. It’s more to the sweeter side, unlike Wong Poh’s version with curry leaves and cili padi that gives it a hint of spiciness.
heavenly matched other half of these butter crabs has to be fried mantaos. Sweep it with layers of artery clogging creamy butter sauce and you are in seventh heaven.
The night is still young for the girls, but not those uncles who are older by two years. They gave in, where we ended up at The Cotton Club, Maju Junction. We were anticipating some swinging jazz grooves for a night up, but the band is playing some Cantonese hits instead.
There was a buy one free one promotion for wine (RM 110 each) going on so we had eight of them.
Some sex on the beach to sizzle up the night. I was eyeing the food menu where they offer an impressive selection of contemporary western cuisine for lunch and dinner, six days a week.
