Opeam Premier Wine & Dine Restrobar, Ipoh

I JUST CANNOT KEEP TRACK OF ALL THE NEW FOOD OUTLETS IN IPOH... To my recent knowledge, Ipoh has suddenly been on the fast track opening cafes, kopithiams, fine dinings and restrobar?  Wow, I never heard of this word before this, during my younger days, Ipoh is all about hawker food on the streets, coffeeshops with fans and for special occasions, coffeehouse was the trend that time.  Well, Ipoh has indeed "promoted" to a number of fine dining these days....

No such thing as "don't know where to eat" when my girl is around.  I just have to ask her and in a few clicks into her Instagram, she has most of the newly opened cafes and restrobars at her fingertips. Restrobar... hmmmm... I am update myself using that word!   And we went to one of the latest opened in town, for me, everything is just newly opened for I had never heard of it until just last weekend.  She recommended the restrobar called OPEAM, a bungalow just behind De Gardens at Ipoh Garden South.  She called up for reservation, just in case and we have to be there early for the place was fully booked by 8pm.  Wow.. business sounds good!

We reached here around 6.30pm... 
True enough, the place was almost fully occupied...
  
My girl ordered Aglio Olio with smoked salmon... RM22
Her friend ordered Smoked Duck....
Portion looks small for the plate is huge... RM22
I wanted this!  Saw it on the Facebook that it looks fabulous.. so I must try..
Unagi Bento... RM35
Very generous with the Unagi.. 
I couldn't even finish it all by myself...
For desserts, we have the Alaska Bomb... RM35
Saw this online too... so must try!
The staff will light up the rum and then poured it onto the ice cream covered with egg white..
Took a short clip on that...
Yes, she told us not to "burn" it for too long... and I quickly blew out the flames...
The outer layer is not sweet and now overflowing with rum....
The diffused "Bomb" filled with chocolate and vanilla ice cream.... 
And of course, the ending of the meal came with another "Bomb" from the wallet...
LOL....

  1. Places this fancy are usually quite expensive. But I am sure everyone wanted to try it out. Your video of the flaming dessert is just GORGEOUS!! And it looks mouth watering after you blew it out! This one dessert would be worth the price of the whole meal to me!

  3. This uncle here is also learning a new word from you - Restrobar!
    However I heard it's called Bombe Alaska and my mum was good at bombing this dish. I miss this dessert now.

    I agree that Ipoh has changed a lot and no more a sleepy relaxing town. The food everywhere is still good!

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 …
