Buntong Noodles In Ipoh Town

When we are in a "non-ricey" mode, we will opt for noodles instead...my sister and I will drive around the town while thinking of the "perfect" place to soothe our appetite.  And on this particular night, both of us agreed to have our dinner here... Buntong noodles...

At first sight, there is nothing unusual with this shop... the only difference is... "Take Number".... Yes, we must take a number upon entering the shop.  The numbers are on a table and apparently both of us forgot about it till we sat down and looked around... In a way, this system is good... first come first serve basis...
Soon it was our turn... and we ordered these for our dinner...
I prefer their dried version... with a pinch of lard at the side...
Some fish balls....
Fried wanton and fried beancurd skin wrappings...
But most of all, I like their stewed Eggplant with fish paste embedded in between...
Not many people like eggplant... 
My mom told me that they "blur" our eyes if we eat too much?
Is it true?  :)


The shop is called Sri Mahkota 
(Buntong noodles)
73 & 75, Theatre Street,
30000 Ipoh.

  3. I've never heard that about eggplants! I didn't like veggies as a kid but I love eggplant!

    Maybe my mom never mentioned it since she figured anything to make me eat veggies is a good thing.

    I didn't eat veggies (full protein and carb diet - meat only) until I was in my 20's!

  8. I have always wanted to go to a noodle shop, but this place has lots more than just noodles! Do you have the shops that sell only noodles in bowls with different kinds of broth and added things? I would love to go to one! Maybe you will find one sometime and post it.

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 …
