Xiang Palace In SOHO IPOH

On that particular day, both of us did not any plans on what and where to take our lunch... we have ran out of ideas and choices and we just drove around town to get some "food inspiration" ... hahaha...  And good thing we manage to get to this place...

SOHO Ipoh (Small Office, Home Office) is the new place in town, located at the intersection Jalan Sultan Idris Shah (Brewster Road), corner of The Sultan Yussuf Fountain roundabout which also walking distance to Ipoh Parade Shopping Mall where one of the over-rated shops is located. 

This SOHO is an enclosed area, as the shops are not fully occupied yet, the parking in this area is free for now.   But we did not go into that over-rated shop, we rather eat somewhere else.  My girl has sharp eyes, she saw one shop called Xiang Palace, just newly opened while I was looking for parking around the vicinity.
My girl was fascinated with something here...
They have see through glass where we can see the "food-in-making"...
We ordered a big bowl of noodles with dumplings...
There were six big ones inside.....
These are not wanton noodles... looks like Hakka noodles to me....
Well, it is certainly enough for her!
Taste?  She finished it all...  :)
As for me, I wanted to try some Black Sesame dumpling........ 
And the next thing I know, I was served only ONE dumpling!
When I told the waiter why just one... he answered that I wrote "1" on the order chit....
Oh, I thought when I wrote "1"...  it would come in one small basket??? 
I thought I would be served like this... 3 in the basket, not 1.... 
hahahaaa..
Anyway, my girl and I had a good laugh over it...
Cos they gave us another basket with 3 inside... so altogether we had 4 of these.....
And the best thing is.... they gave another 10% discount on the total bill...
Our bill only came to RM13 something with drinks...
Not too bad.. worth trying again...

  2. So funny to serve you 1 bao in the whole empty basket. Normally 1 means 1 basket, you are right. So how did they charge you for the baos, not per basket but per number of baos? The 10% discount is given to all customers or just to you both?

  5. Oh? So that's the meaning behind the name. I thought it was following the name of the red-light district in London. :D Those buns look like the lau sar pao I had yesterday morning...minus the black dot. Love the look of the dumplings - gorgeous.

  14. This is also a popular trend here in KL now to show the kitchen scene. Makes the diners more excited and wait longer knowing that the chefs are working hard. This open concept makes the ambiance more spacious too. Nice place!

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....

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...
