From Japanese Sushi To Chinese Dim Sum In Ipoh

The festive week holidays are over and tomorrow school will reopen once again.  My girl is back to college after a seven days break last week.  As usual when she is back home, she will like to go here and there for her favourite food.   During the past few days while I was working, she was out with her friends for meals and now coming to think of it, we had only two meals outside our home....

Her favourite two "hotspots" are none other than Japanese Sushi and Dim Sum...
We were here at Sushi Tei at the Parkson Parade on Friday night...
Opened not too long ago and this was my first time going there...
Part of the food we took.....
Not sure of the names.. 
But I guess this is a common sight in Japanese food... 
I can only remember this... 
It is called Penthouse....
they really look like "houses" here..
Something to do with "Lobster Salad"
I don't feel full nor satisfied when it comes to eating Japanese food...
The thing is I don't know how much rice I have put into my mouth..
I just put them in and in.... till I surrender...
The next morning we went to a new DIM SUM shop in SOHO, Ipoh ...
It is called Lok Hin Dim Sum Restaurant...
Handmade Noodles with "Dan Dan" sauce... RM6.00
As usual the egg tarts will not escape her eyes.... RM4
Barbequed Buns  RM4
Out of the above, this one only looks kind of special...
Yam with pumpkin.... very nice and tasty... RM5
For the above plus our chrysanthemum, it cost RM26....
Well, I guess eating Dim Sum is not cheap, right?

  1. Though not a fan of Japanese food but still it looks good to me. Having said that, between the two, I still prefer the Dim sum combo. All looks so nice especially the deep fried yam & pumpkin. So cripsy looking. Makes me drooled.

So usuallt I will order ramen or any soupy noodles, or rice, plus some sushi.. If only sushi, not enuff for me.. Ohh about the bill checking, same like you, if cheap then I don't bother.. If mahal or more than I expect, then only I check..

  6. Nah nah nah, that is what I call egg tart lah, not those wannabes that I usually see in Penang.
    I prefer Sushi Tei's set lunch menu, I feel they are better value and better tasting compared to their ala carte choices..

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
