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.

  11. You have got 3+1 dish o.O? One complimentary form the bozz haha..sudah terlebih pixz on the 4th. Used to love gravy until Mango said they are the worst to go with rice coz all the MSG are in the gravy the most. Now gotta listen and eat without gravy.

  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.

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…
