Zakka Loft In IPOH

Zara Loft.... it reminds me of a character in a fiction book I read before.... it also reminded me of a high end shop in a shopping mall.... Zara... Zara... definitely not here in IPOH but in Klang valley.  Ok, what am I babbling about?

Last weekend when my girl was back for the weekend, she told me about this Zara Loft that serves desserts, snacks and drinks... newly opened and sort of hidden in a corner next to a boutique.  She knows I am a dessert maniac and she knows I will surely go to find out what's in store....

And it was there when I realized that I was wrong.... it is Zakka Loft... not Zara Loft... (my ears need digging, my girl said)   well.... *shrug*
Zakka Loft.... 
When we entered, we saw these displays on the left and right.... 
Most of them are handmade handicrafts...
I think the stuff are for sale.... maybe certain stuff...
of course, that excludes the tables and chairs... hahahaa...
Actually our stomachs were still very "filled-up"
Out of curiosity, we just wanted to seek this place out....
we shared some herbal jelly...
we ordered ice lemon tea and hawthorn
I like the Hawthorn... very thick and nice...
most of the cakes shown in the menu was sold out...
except for this carrot cake...
Not too bad...after "micro-waving" it for some seconds....
 I don't like to eat them hard and cold..
No 2, Jalan Medan Ipoh 1C,
Medan Ipoh Bistari,
31400 Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia

I would like to drop by to Zakka Loft once again, this time I will go earlier to "catch" the goodies before they are sold out.  Nice place to have a tete-a-tete in a homely atmosphere.....


  1. Haiz, no more cakes? Tsk Tsk visit Zakka another time k. Show us more photos. That herbal jelly look refreshing during hot days right?

  2. The carrot cake looks just like the kind we have here! I love the little shop, would like to buy that white cabinet hanging on the wall!

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 …
