Nice Varieties At 101 Ban Mee, Station 18, Ipoh

MY SECOND VISIT TO 101 BAN MEE AT STATION 18....

I don't mind coming for my third visit, there are a few more varieties which I would love to taste.  It opens in the morning and by noon or so, the shop will be closed, so the next time I must go earlier to catch the "Water Dumplings" before they run out of stock.  LOL... Quite a distance from my place to Station 18, but food knows no barrier.  As long as there is good company and good food, short or long distance is not an obstacle, right?
This is the shop at the Station 18...
It is called 101... I wonder why.... 
Maybe 101 specifies One and Only One Special... 
It was after 12pm when we arrived... the shop was half closed just after we entered...
Their Fresh Beancurd skin with fish paste is a Must Order....
They are crispy and nice... I wish I could take the whole lot!
But I ended up only two... maximum.... 
This is my order... the normal Ban Mee with spinach... 
Dry version also looks nice.... 
Comes with a bowl of spinach too... 
This is the normal Lor Mee.... 
The gravy tastes like those sharkfin gravy especially when black vinegar is added... 
This is the special Lor Ban Mee with Two Water Dumplings aka Sui Kau... 
We wanted to order the Sui Kau separately but unfortunately, these were the last two.... 
Each bowl cost around RM5-6... 
My third visit will be this order above... for sure!

  4. Thanks for introducing this place. I love pan mee, but this place is a bit far from my place. Will try to make a trip there one day.

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…
