Malaysian Food At Imperial Palace Restaurant, Edinburgh


Before we left Edinburgh, a family of three invited the three of us to a scrumptious dinner at Imperial Palace restaurant.  Using GPS, Aaron managed to find this beautiful chinese restaurant owned by a Sabahan, so it seems.  His friend highly recommended this restaurant and ordered these yummy dishes to satisfy our tummies before we bade goodbye to Edinburgh.

Aubergine with minced meat and salted fish....a real appetizing dish!  
So Malaysian!!
Yong Tau Foo is not excluded.... So nicely cooked to perfection! 
Mixture of three types of meat...roasted pork, bbq char siew and roasted duck!
Even kangkung is availabe here....sambal kangkung, no joke!
Claypot benacurd with meat....
What a appetizing dinner!!  Total cost?  No, we did not ask the host....
We were indeed very thankful and blessed with a sumptuous dinner...
Bading goodbye to Edinburgh, we reached Aberdeen around 10pm plus.... 
A very interesting and fruitful day trip indeed for us!


  1. Wahhhhh!!! Eating Chinese there must be so expensive. The chairs look so English, very nice.

    1. Prices range from £10 onwards... I think it is around 100£ fior the six of us....

  2. The food looked good. Not cheap considering a Chinese restaurant over there. Kangkung!! Must fly over to have fresh stock all the time.

  3. I eyeing the mixture of three types of meat...

  4. Hmm, the yong tau foo... drenched in those sauce then not very Malaysian already XD ... but in Scotland, okay lah... or maybe that is Sabah style yong tau foo...

    1. Black beans sauce... Common la in the west....

  5. I like the first 2 dishes...looks so yummy!

  6. The friends know that Reana Claire don't like kwai loh food lah, that's why. All the dishes look good and so local hah..hah... People belanja, so just happily wallop!

  7. Looks like a really fancy restaurant! Even carpeting and high backed chairs!

  8. Wah so nice of your friend to give you all a treat. A taste of home in Edinburgh! How about that. :-)

  9. Food fit for a King! Drooling.

    I thought aubergine with minced meat and salted fish is a regional dish from China.

    1. Is the aubergine with minced meat and salted fish normally cooked with "muy heung hom yee”/fermented and salted fish or a 'copy cat of such fish' by households?

    2. We cook that in malaysia too.. We call them brinjals over here... Not aubergine.. Or maybe this aubergine is rounder and shorter than the local ones..

  10. So nice, your friend.... That first dish, indeed very Chinese style!

    1. Chinese owner so the food is very malaysian...

  11. What a scrumptious dinner, love all the Chinese Food shown here, when I traveled to Turkey in 1997, I missed Chinese Food too!

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 …
