Good Choice At CJ Hot Pot, Ipoh Garden, Ipoh

OUR LAST EVENING IN IPOH..... I gave several suggestions for the youngsters to decide the dining venue, somewhere they have not been before and the food must be nice as well.  Japanese, Korean, Thai food were among the choices I gave but they could not make up their mind.  Everything sounds good, salivating so they said.  Since they could not make up their mind, I made the decision to take them to CJ Hot Pot.  They have not been to this place and they did not know what to expect until we sat down and ordered the food.

CJ Hot Pot is in Ipoh Garden, Medan Ipoh 7, it is something like steamboat, but it is actually a hot pot soup filled with varieties such as vegetables, tomatoes, fish meat or fish head, yam.  The soup was aromatic with a yellowish tinge, a bit sour and slightly spicy that makes the whole meal appetizing to our taste buds.  When the hot pot was served, my kids were fascinated and they went to pick and added in more ingredients to the hot soup.  Besides that, we ordered some side dishes to go with our scrumptious dinner!
This is the place we had our Hot Pot... 
The Hot Pot that arrived on our table.... filled with goodies...
Immediately, the guys went to pick and choose what they wanted to add inside the Hot Pot...
Noodles, fish balls, greens... optional picks... 
While waiting for the ingredients to get cooked, we did this.... 
Eventually it was full to the brim!
Side dishes such as Salted Egg Mini French Beans...
This is a good choice... Crispy Beancurd skin.... 
A Must-Order dish!
Minced pork meat mixed with salted fish... 
Ahhh... another tasty dish... 
Curry Prawns In Bread...
Wonderfully cooked and appetizing!
During the dinner, everything served received positive remarks...
I am so happy that they love the food here.... 
For sure they will want to come back again...
As for the bill, it came to around RM140 or so...
Not too bad for the five of us.

  1. That's a BIG pot! It is gorgeous, I love this idea! We do not have any restaurants like this that I know of. It would be so good and warming on a cold day, and you can put what you want in it. The bread dish looks very good too. The kids all look so happy!!

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…
