My Merdeka Lunch In TangShiFu

I spent my Merdeka lunch in the biggest mall in IPOH... yes, it is called AEON Station 18!  It was so crowded, the car parks were practically FULL and I had to park my car at the very top floor under the hot sun.  Made a mistake, one should go to the malls around 10am or so instead of lunch hour like what I did...

The food outlets were also full... wanted to try Canton-I, it was full... Dragon-I also same.. seems the "I" are popular in the mall.  Eventually I ended up in TaangShiFu restaurant which has plenty of tables... a nice ambience... no queue... no waiting long for the food... that's what I like...
 Very "Chinese-sy" deco....
The service was great... smiling ladies...
Appetizer was served the minute I sat down....
I ordered Mi Sua with ginseng...it tasted not too bad...
with a strong aroma of ginseng in the soup....
Hope they will notice the chipped bowl...
To accompany the Mi-Sua, this small pottery came along...
Mixed varieties consisting of fish maw, chicken, dried scallops, seas cucumber...  etc... 
A little bit of this and that.... 
Bill came to around RM60+- with drinks... 

This is not a review.. actually I was slightly disappointed with the presentation...
I remember this dish was nicely arranged when I went there last time...
But the taste was the same... not too bad cos I love this dish perhaps? :)
I told the lady staff what I felt.... she was very pleasant...
Hope they will improve on the presentation for the above dishes :)

  1. Wow, that's very expensive, the appetizer looks sad either. Totally agree with you, shouldn't go to malls during public holiday unless you feel like getting stuck in the middle of the road LOL!

  3. Wow, so expensive. What is that served as appetizer? Can't figure out. You should have dropped the chipped bowl like what STP taught, hehehe.

  4. Tang Shi Fu is quite expensive! I don't like the food there - been there a couple of times, but they have soups.

    I don't know how they can expand to so many places!

    Coz basically a lot of their menu items is soup and if you don't like soup... :)

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 …
