Cucuk Udang Impiana Hotel And Yam Balls, Gunong Rapat

TIME FOR IPOH SNACKS AND TEA TIME...  It has been ages since I last post about Ipoh delights?  I am now quietly sitting down in the comfort of my own nutshell, screened through the photo folder in my handphone a moment ago to see what are in store for today's post...

Looking at the photo below, the tea time snack was taken in Impiana Hotel, Jalan Gopeng.  One fine afternoon my friend took me to meet up with the hotel manager, they were old friends from yesteryears and while they had their conversation, I was happily enjoying the hotel's famous cucuk udang.  Seems that the GM was particular about the taste of the cucuk udang, he wanted to bring back the hotel's signature snacks, he took the trouble to eat in several stalls.... and finally, he got the "right" taste back....
For a plate of the special Cucuk Udang that comes with a cup of hot coffee or tea,
it is RM12 ... 
As for me, I can skip the tea... 
This plate of CU is more than enough for me... 
Crispy at the sides and insides filled with prawns, celery, onions and spring onions.. 
The taste is somehow different from the ones I used to eat in my canteen.  :p
In another place, another time, I went to Gunong Rapat roadside to have some snacks...
This stall which is located just outside the village hall sells Laksa among other things..
I love their Laksa and too bad I didn't take a picture of it... 
In fact I forgotten all about it when the bowl appeared in front of me!
But I remember to take this kacang snack from a stall just next to the Laksa one....
This is something new to me too... 
Wu Tau Yuen aka Yam Balls!
First time I heard of them... and being foodie adventurous, I ordered a plate... RM6
Beneath the Yam Balls laid some greens.. Kangkung... 
I like the sauce... I like the Yam Balls... I like the greens.... 
I must go there again one weekend!!

  8. I think I need to do a day trip to Ipoh again just to eat and tapao the yam balls. Looks so delicious! I like to eat cucur udang too and the best ones were the ones I ate in my secondary school canteen. Now I cannot find back that taste, so sad.

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…
