Our Wine & Dine At Citrus, Ipoh

BEFORE WE LEFT FOR KUALA LUMPUR LAST WEEK, I took my sister and my BIL for a nice western dinner.... Initially I was undecided to where I should take them, I had three choices in mind, David's Diner, Ye Olde English and Citrus.  And at the last minute, I made up my mind, it will be Citrus, known for their quality food and ambience ...... 

We arrived at Citrus around 7pm, first customers to enter for dinner.... and after we sat down, some other patrons entered.... We took some minutes ordering and while waiting, we took some pictures near we sat....

Towards the rear....
I took some pictures but they turned out too dark for the it was pretty dim inside...
One for the album before our lipstick "vanishes"
hahahahaa...
Another one while waiting for our main meals... 
For starters, BIL ordered Abalone chowder with garlic bread....
Followed by wagyu beef..... a mini sized one!
I wonder where it fits into when eaten...
hahahahaa...
His Comfort Food, I was told...
My sister ordered some crabmeat patties.....
And she was going to start on it when I suddenly clicked...
As for me, this is my choice...
Grilled chicken with pumpkin sauce... 
Two whole pieces, I couldn't finish them all...
One piece went to my sis...
And a meal is not complete with desserts....
Banana ice cream with brownie that just melts in our mouths!
The total cost came to around RM255....
Definitely it melts my heart too!
hahahahaha...

    1. Yes, it was still within the 15 days of CNY... so sort of a promotion decor ...

  3. I guess a huge portion of the bill belongs to the wagyu. A delicious meal indeed. Hope your sister and her husband is satisfied with their dishes though the wagyu is such a small piece, he must be still hungry after eating it.

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 …
