Special Taste In Ipoh Garden Marpoh

One of the most popular eatery place in Ipoh is Marpoh Restaurant, located in Ipoh Garden. Business is very brisk, it opens for lunch and for dinner.  My family likes to come here for meals, prices are reasonable and many of their dishes are tasty too.  It started with one shophouse many years ago and expanded to two and during festive seasons, the first storey is also used to accommodate us, the patrons... :)

I had a nice dinner with my family and for the three of us, we ordered something kind of special....
Marpoh signature dish...
Their own-made beancurd with diced meat...
The sauce is simply appetizing....
If we could, this one dish alone is can go with our rice...
Eggplants with fish paste...
Their gravy is also suitable for white rice....
Oh... this is very "unhealthy!"
But I cannot resist ordering this...
Braised "stomach" with lots of garlic, chillies and whatever...
Simply tasty to our buds!
Three large dishes... for three persons...
Normally I don't take Big Bowl of rice..
But for this particular dinner, I could finish the whole Big bowl of rice!
The price?
It cost RM36 with rice and 3 glasses of water....
That is why the Brisk Business here.  :)

  3. The first two dishes - tofu and the brinjal dishes are enough for me. Too troublesome for me to eat the belly dish as I would be trying to pick out all the fatty bits. Price is sure good - no wonder they have good business.

  14. The 3 dishes are so appetizing and the bill was cheap lah.
    Tofu is healthy and very tasteless so any sauce will make it delicious.

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...
