Rubbish Chicken Among Others At Hooray Restaurant, Ipoh

ON ONE FINE EVENING, (cos I forgot which day already)  my foodie couple came to pick me up for dinner.  Knowing that I do not drive out during the dark, they came all the way from their house to pick me, it took them half and hour before we reached our place for Food which is at Hala Medan Lapangan 2, (Off Gopeng Road), Ipoh. 

Hooray!! Hooray!!  Hooray from me for bringing me along and the name of the shop is called Hooray!!  What a nice cute name... I was imagining something very western about the place... but no, the food is purely Asian.  A very simple corner shop which serves mixed rice during the day and ala carte dishes during the evenings.   Recommended by an ex-colleague, I was all eager to see what they served....

One young man came to take our order and we could not help ordering what he recommended... "Rubbish Chicken!"  Oh my goodness, what a name!  I am sure this dish will draw some hesitation, we were also taken aback... and curious at the same time. OK, Rubbish Chicken???   No problem, we were Game for it!
And so... the dish came out in a Claypot... 
Inside the pot, the Rubbish Chicken consisted of chicken, *of course*
cooked with tumeric, curry leaves, ginger.... etc. etc.. 
More or less my style of cooking... 
Everything dumped in and turned out pretty good!
If it is called Claypot chicken, the name does not sound astonishing, right?
However Rubbish Chicken will draw some attention!
Next came the young and fresh sweet potato leaves... 
Sizzling hot in a claypot too!
We super like!

Last and not least, this is the most appetizing of all....
Lots of picked onions on top and fried crispy meat beneath... 
Our three dishes for us three... 
Let's get busy now.... 
As for the bill, it came to a reasonable RM46 with rice and drinks.... 
And I'll say.... 
Hip, Hip Hurray!!

34, Hala Medan Lapangan 2, Ipoh. (off Gopeng Road).
Opens from 3 pm - 11 pm.

  1. The name of the chicken dish sounds weird. Out of so many nice name they can choose, why they opt for this name. Say hi to Nancy.

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
