Amica In Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

Come Sunday, the four of us "scratched" our heads again... thinking of the place for our breakfast... or should I say brunch? It was almost 11am when we set out from our house and I drove south this time... I mean we ended up in Ipoh Garden South...

There are a few coffeeshops there and I guess most of the good food would have finished by this time.  I did not have any shop in mind when Amica caught my eye.  Amica is along the RHB Bank in Ipoh Garden South, just opposite Pretty Pets.

There were still a crowd there so I guess the food was not finished yet... True enough... food is still abundant there except for the nyonya cakes and kueh.... but the Uncle's dumplings caught my eye... I ordered a few of these to eat while waiting for the food....
 I chose one of each... they look different from the normal ones...
The black one is nice.. charcoal something?
The filling is kaya, I like it...
Then the flower type of dumpling is also nice, my girl likes it...
And the last yellowish one has black sesame fillings... 
I got up again and went to get another two types...
This one also looks special...
Has black sesame and white on the outside...
And the filling is mashed sweet potatoes!
Something I like to eat too....
Each of these dumpling cost RM1.50
Tried their steamed glutinous rice too...
Not bad... tasty... RM3.50 is not too steep...
 As for the food, we ordered Chee Cheong Fun...
My friend ordered it actually and she said "Okay-la..."
This is mine.... not a good choice... 
The noodles are just too little for me... 
hahahahaa...
 My girl ordered Hakka noodles... 
I didn't try it but she finished all of it... so it must be good...
It came with a bowl of wanton noodles...
 And her friend ordered a plate of Wanton noodles with Braised Duck....
The Hakka noodles and this one above only cost RM7... 
Good pricing!
I will try this one day.... 
And of course, the dumplings too.... 
I like all of them!

  9. Ipoh has a lot of Hakka is it? Because looks like Hakka noodle is pretty common there. Not so in Kuching although Hakka and Hokkien are predominant. ;)

    Indeed unique-looking buns you ordered. Very creative.

  15. This is the first time I heard of dumplings with mashed sweet potatoes! I would love to eat this!
    Seems like now the trend for dumplings have expanded and stuffed with almost anything edible & nice.
    Just like crow's meat pies and dumplings as example! Ever tried this yummy and blueky food? LOL
    I experienced a lot of dumplings in China that send my eye brows up. They even have salted vegies, rabbit meat and anything.... Eeeeeeeee

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
