Old Town Kopitiam At M Boutique Hotel, Ipoh

Long lunch hour today... Elin and I were undecided where to go for our lunch. Both of us were not very hungry and secondly, the weather was really discouraging. We wanted something light and at the same time, the place must be cooling and nice. :) After some suggestions, both of us agreed to go to Old Town Kopitiam at M Boutique Hotel.
M Boutique Hotel or is it M Hotel Boutique?
The reception/lobby reminded me of those chinese medicine shops
during the Ching/Quan /Dynasty as shown in TVB series...
(I guess I've seen too much Astro these days!)
I didn't take any pictures of the reception, not so comfortable doing so...
But I did ask about the rates though...
For standard room, it is around RM200 inclusive of breakfast for two..
Not too bad... 
Government rates is around RM160.... 
We proceeded to the Old Town Kopithiam...
 Once seated, we were requested to order our drinks first...
As for the food, Elin was busy browsing through the menu...
Both of us ordered our Honey Lemon Ice drink... 
It was so quenching and nice especially during such hot humid weather...
I wanted something light... so I ordered Laksa  RM9,90
And Elin ordered a Banana French Toast RM7.90
Just look at my laksa bowl!  So enormous, right?
Really worth the price cos I just love it!
Not too sour... not too spicy.. thick with sardine...
And in such a cooling place, I don't mind paying a bit more...
Definitely will come by here again for the Laksa again!

  3. Light lunch both of you have. Due to humid & hazy weather, no appetite to eat???...but that glass of quenching Honey Lemon ice drinks sure smoothing your throat.

  7. I don't remember seeing any banana french toast in our Old Town menu in KL.. Ok maybe got but macam tak perasan pulak.. These few days we didn't go out for lunch coz so hazy, nobody wanted to drive.. So either we bring food from home or tapau from downstairs canteen..

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
