Ladies Night Out To Sam Poh Restaurant, Ipoh

At least once a week, I will have dinner with my lady friends... When they come to pick me, the first question that comes to their mind is "Where and what to eat tonight?" They know I surf a lot online for FOOD in IPOH and most times, I will tell them where the place is and what to order... (Yes, I am a "food explorer" in other words, "Wai Sik meow" in cantonese)

Back to Food Exploring, I heard that this shop Sam Poh Restaurant serves moderately priced dishes and yet tasty too! Being an Ipohian, I know very well that once you hear the words tasty and cheap, ahh haa.... the crowd will definitely be there before you do! 

To avoid the crowd and queue, go as early as you can.  If you can reach the place by 6pm, then you are safe...Heeding that advice, you can be assured of a table and the food served within minutes..

As for me and my friends, the three of us ended up ordering these for our dinner...

Ordered Butter fried crayfish...
their signature beancurd with loofah (sing kwa)
love this dish...
We didn't feel like taking rice that night and ended up with this...
crispy fried noodles with seafood varieties...
Its their signature dish... stewed sea cucumber, mushrooms, fresh scallops and vegetables...
I thought this dish would be expensive...
To our amazement, it is only RM15!  (3 persons)
And the bill for the 3 dishes came to RM36 only!
Well, what do you say?

Sharing is feasting...

  10. The fried noodles look the best to me here. Here, people who arrive for dinner before 5:00 P.M. usually get a discount. It is mostly the seniors who do it and it is called the early bird special! Some of the young ones will make fun of how early seniors eat and go to bed.

  11. I go Ipoh, u bring me go eat... kakaka...

  12. The noodles looks super GOOD.

  13. hayley: yeah i feel it is reasonable too..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
