Buntong Fried Noodles Behind Old Majestic Cinema, Ipoh

Yearning for the Buntong Fried Noodles again... this time I went along with my sister who didn't know where this place was relocated... and now she knows, she will bring her friends there next time. We reached MX11 at around 7pm and surprisingly this time, the place was quite full already.

Most of the patrons were patiently waiting and we were told that the "chef" had not arrived yet and we laughed upon hearing that.  Normally the chef  should be early, right?  Anyway, for our dinner we waited for around 45 minutes and meanwhile we ordered two sets of these Fresh Fish Balls to pass time...
One set comes in a set of 5.... and it cost RM6 per plate...
I was thinking "wahhhhh... so expensive ah...."
But when I bite into it... Wow... they were so fresh and nice...
And we ended up ordering another set!
We ended up "interviewing" the man who sells these
The fish balls were prepared by his relative who uses "Tau Foo" fish to do them... 
All he needs to do is to steam them back for 7-8 minutes...
Must not be too long nor too short a time... otherwise they won't taste GOOD!
Highly recommended....
Finally the noodles came....  RM12
This is a Must Order Koay Teow...
The gravy was overfilling the noodles.....
I love it!!!
We also ordered a plate of meehoon....  RM12
Very tasty.... maybe I was too hungry then....
Waiting for 45 minutes is no joke even though there are fish balls around... 
hahahaaa....
Our portion of food are for three persons....
And our total cost for this dinner came to RM36 for the food only....
Well, I will certainly come again...
Will bring my guests this time... 
It opens only in the evening till late in the night....

  1. Just by the look of the fish ball can see they are bouncy and syiok! The wat tan hor is my favourite.

  8. Noodles look good! They should let the fish balls stand on some kitchen towels first to soak away a bit of the oil.

  11. Wah, the meehoon looks delicious! I guess if the fishballs were good, then the price is worth paying for. After all, we are not going to sweat it out in the kitchen to make fish balls, so we have to pay for the labour :)

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…
