Lunch At Old Town, Cendol In Bercham

FOOD TRAIL WITH MY FRIENDS...

I anticipated anxiously when my friends come calling and paying a visit to Ipoh... Where to go, what to eat is secondary, we always play by ear at the moment of time when we see each other.  Better not to plan than planning, we know our likes and dislikes by now. 

Ipoh no doubt has a lot to offer when it comes to food, however, taste buds always change every now and then.  Food aside, we enjoy each other's company, catching up with one another and talking anything under the sun is more fun...

Even queuing under the sun for a bowl of Cendol receives no complaints from us....
Alright, we were not exactly under the sun but under the shade.... 
Someone was lining up for us instead... LOL... 
Worth waiting 20 minutes or so.... 
And our quenching time starts.... 
Had our lunch at Koh Kee in Old Town, Ipoh.... 
Steamed fish belly... .
Old style of steaming.... with lots of ginger and garlic...
Sambal Watercress...
Steamed three types of eggs...
Dishes for the four of us.... 
Bill came to around RM50 plus... not sure exactly how much... 
Walked around a bit in old town which is now a famous ground for tourists...
Yes, we were more or less tourists on this day!

  7. I must go and google maps where exactly is Bercham. The old walls and tree roots looked familiar to me.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

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.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

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...
