Ipoh Food In Gourmet Square, Ipoh Garden

We reached Ipoh around 6pm, rested for an hour or so before we adjourned for our dinner.  My friend wanted to go to our "old place" (loe tei fong) in Ipoh Garden.  Yes, we gathered at Gourmet Square for our light dinner.... It is our old place because we first started to come by here during the 1970s..... It was called "Mushroom Stop" then... (Tung Ku Teng) ... 
We ordered just a few varieties cos we wanted to go for our second round dinner in town...  
Sotong with Kangkung... 
I was told that the sauce is made from pumpkin....
No wonder so nice.....
Hongkong Chee Cheong Fun...
Melts in the mouth... trust me! 
hahahahaa...
A bowl of mixed vegetables with fish paste...
Oyster crabs... 1kg.. RM50
Tasty but a bit spicy...
Next time I must tell them to lessen the chilli....
 We are light eaters, right?
Cos we were thinking of going to town for something special...
But unfortunately, it was not opened...
We decided to go home...
There were still much catching up to do in the room...
*Slumber Party* for the girls!

  1. Ahh I miss HK style Cheong Fun!! This one looks plenty good! I used to have it when I was still living in KL, the pasar near my home has a stall that sells a very awesome one. Nowadays when I go back, my mom will complain about me being fatsss and the only breakfast I get is fruit blended juices and whole wheat organic bread. In Penang need to go to the dimsum places super early, if you go to Maxim at 8AM like me, they are usually sold out :(

    1. I really got to laugh when you mentioned your mom complained you are fatssss... hahaha.. can eat means prosperity, as Chinese used to say... but you are very blessed.. can get fresh fruit juices.. that is really healthy! Maxim? I have been there several times.. you should try their fried rice at 11am.. very fragrant!

  2. Not a fan of sotong kangkung, but I like that soup with fish paste. Ching ching dei, I like.. Dont like 'dry' crabs. Prefer the 'wet' ones with lots of butter gravy and can dip and eat with fried mantou..

  4. All the food looks so tempting but the crabs I give it a pass as I find it very troublesome to eat.

  10. Oh, I like to eat sotong kangkung and the vege in the fish paste bowl. I love to eat crabs too but then too lazy to eat them so I think it has been a year since I last ate them. This is a food court, right?

    1. Yes, this food court is very busy during the weekends...

  11. This reminds me of the Open Air Market in Kuching, one of those places in the 70's for young people to gather and hang out and eat - http://suituapui.wordpress.com/2014/07/12/open-air/
    It certainly looks very popular still - so many people. Ooooo....lovely crabs.

    Sure is nice to get together with old friends and go raun raun (Sarawak Malay for round round) and catch up with one another, recalling the good old days. I really enjoy that so much. Great...with new(er) friends too. Hint! Hint!

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...
