Name The Dish - Assam House, Greentown, Ipoh

Assam House in Greentown Business Centre... Yes, we went there during the festive season. While all the other shops were either full or crowded, we were so glad when we saw a few empty tables in this restaurant... It has been a few years since I last ate in this shop and I couldn't remember much about the food taste...

There were seven of us and these were what we ordered...
Buttered squids....
Claypot Eggplant
Assam Fish Slices....
 The taste ... hmmmm... goes well with rice...
Appetizing....
Steamed 3 types of eggs...
Century eggs, Salted Eggs and the normal type of eggs.. hahahaa....
OK... the question of this post....
What dish is this, can you all guess?  :)
One dish was missing on this table...
The greens... I forgot to take a picture of that...
Another Yummy Meal taken ....
But I was not happy with the price though...
It came to RM160... and I feel it was overpriced..
Perhaps it was due to the festive weekend....

Anyway.....
Just for fun again...
Hope you can guess the dish above...
I will choose one among all the correct answers...  :)

  7. The fish slices look good. I do not recognize the other one at all, will be anxious to find out!

  8. Luckily your nephew is shooting upwards and not expanding sideway. All the food looks so appetising and as for the price I think quite reasonable considering it is CNY time. Want to earn extra. Wild guess is steamed meat with salted veg.

  9. Otak otak?

    You know wat? If I see all other shops are full or crowded yet this one has empty tables, I wont dare to walk inside thinking surely not nice, otherwise why still empty? haha..

    The buttered squid looks so appetizing!! Slurps.

  15. steamed 3 eggs! my all time favorite! but it's not easy to find a decent one though, some might be too salty as they might over-adding salted egg :(

  23. Is this the Assam House that many celebrities went to eat? I think the dish is otak otak too. Good food. On average around 25 per dish after minus rice and drinks for 7 people so consider ok, not too expensive since it is a famous restaurant.

  24. Mun, Assam House has been around for some years now in Ipoh.. the food is considered not bad.. but a bit pricey perhaps..

  25. Have not tried before the steamed 3 types of eggs

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
