Lunch And Hi Tea Set At Limestone, Regal Lodge

CATCHING UP AGAIN....  this time with another group...

My old schoolmates, but must never say "old" when we are together... LOL.. I took a very light breakfast in the morning cos I know I would be eating a heavy meal for lunch.  My friends came to pick me up from my house and off we went to check out Tower Regency to look at the ballroom.  Yes, my friends are organizing a big event and I just tagged along to see what "they are up to."  LOL... The cafe@6 was fully booked during the lunch hour, we could not get to contact the F&B salesperson... oh well, no worries... not meant to be... 

From Tower Regency, we walked over to Regal Lodge hotel, my friends wanted to try Limestone instead... I mean their coffeehouse... And we ordered two main meals and a set of Hi Tea combo.  After our lunch, the HR representative came to our table, a very friendly lady, who patiently let us know what we need to know and then took us up to see the rooms and the function room as well.  That is more like it!  We were quite happy about the ambiance and their rates... only setback is that the function hall might not be able to hold 80 plus people.  Anyway, yet to confirm.... 

As for the lunch, we had these to stuff our tummies in... 
Spaghetti with chicken chop...
Hawaiian Chicken Chop...
And our high tea set which cost RM29.90
which comes with free tea or coffee... 
I am eyeing the cheese cake now.... 
Our meal for 4 of us... 
Well, we are small eaters...  or are we big??? 
And here we are... marking our presence as usual....

Meaty Dinner At The Butcher's Table, Ipoh

FOR PORKY LOVERS... I have never heard of Butcher's Table until only recently when my friend suggested going there for dinner.  I could not catch up with Ipoh's cafes... they seem to be everywhere, the names sound so unfamiliar to me.  Seems I am really outdated when it comes to cafes... From what I heard, many have close up even before before I could step inside.  That shows how backdated I am.... So when my friend suggested going to Butcher's Table, I said Yay, let's go, never knowing what to expect actually except for meat and more meat!

One look at the menu, I know I am really Out.... I "wow" at their prices, more startled when I saw Meat Pizza pricing at over RM50.  Then when the pizza came out, the price is more or less justified....
Started off with Pumpkin soup.... around RM8.80
Wild mushroom soup.... 
Both are too creamy for me.... but my friends love them!
Ordered their Pork Knuckle special for RM65....
Western Roasted Pork... 
And Malaysian Roasted Pork with Aglio Olio... around RM20 over ...
I like this fusion style...
Meat Pizza came out last..... 
So... what is the catch?
Made with Anchor... hmmmm....
And no bread crust... all Meaty...
See what I mean?
Meat and more meat.... 
One piece is more than enough for me.... 
Now I know why it is called Butcher's Table...
Those who loves meat, this is the place to go....
I wouldn't mind going for the Aglio Olio... but definitely not the meaty pizza!

Landing Lunch At Tuck Kee Restaurant, Ipoh

FLEW IN FOR LUNCH... 

What I meant was their flight reached Ipoh around lunch time.  Once they landed, I took Andy and his girlfriend for lunch at a nearby restaurant called Tuck Kee in Pasir Pinji.  I was also hungry by then.... to our surprise, the restaurant was really packed!  We managed to get a small corner table for us three, we ordered a few dishes and it was a short wait even though the restaurant was crowded.  Good!  By then the three of us were really hungry!

We ordered a platter of just duck and roasted pork.... 
Andy wanted this.... squid dish...
And his favorite Lor Hon Chai.... 
It would be better if there is some wet sauce... a bit too dry here... 
I think I can do better... LOL... 
And a plate of their famous fried Sang Mee... 
This lunch meal for 3 came to around RM100.... 
Big portions... 
We could not finish the squid dish until the next day....
