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!

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 …
