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...

  1. The noodles look really very good!

  2. Only RM36 for all those awesome food. So cheap. Craving for the noodles, hehehe!!!...and a lot of ingredients.

  3. stp: next time I will ask them to put koay teow noodles instead, might be tastier with that.. :)

  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..

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
