Tai You Coffeeshop Along Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh

THE LAST TIME I WENT TO THIS TAI YOU COFFEESHOP WAS IN 2009.... no joke!  When I was still working, I remember my colleagues and I went there quite frequently those days but somehow along the years go by, this shop has been "deleted" from our mind.  Oh yeah!  Now I remember, the stall which served these dishes in 2009 had changed hands with another, it was previously done by a husband and wife team... then they left and handed over by another man and we did not like to go there after the couple left.....

This was in 2009 and the shop is still more or less the same today.....
Tai You along Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh
Famous for their steamed fish head then....
Green leaves....
And omelette...
Those were what we usually ordered then.....
When I came back from Europe recently, I was taken to this shop again....
Six years later..... 
I think the stall has changed hands again... not sure who is who now...
Now it is cooked by an elderly man and helped by a young boy.....
We ordered Bitter Gourd soup.... 
and I only remember to take picture after drinking half way through..
It was also an enormous fish head....
Price has since increased... of course....
For just two dishes it cost around RM46 with rice for the three of us...
Fish is not cheap nowadays....
Or perhaps we have to wait another 6 years to go there again...
hahhahaha....

  1. No need to wait another 6 years to go back. Anytime also can. But we have many other places to go to now!

  4. Hahaha, wait another 6 years to go back there. If you do that, I think it would have changed hands again. I prefer to eat steamed fish instead of steamed fish head.

  8. It's like that lah, when the original people left, we tend to not go back because we are so used to them. But it looks like the food is not bad.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
