Fine Presentation At Dim Sum Yuen, Ipoh Garden, Ipoh

FIRST TIME coming by to Dim Sum Yuen, formerly known as Kao Lee in Ipoh Garden.  It took a Kuala Lumpur lass to inform me that Ipoh has this fine dining Dim Sum in Ipoh Garden, I am indeed not up to date with the latest here in Ipoh... friends call me Food Blogger and yet I am way behind the name.  LOL...

Anyway, thanks to my outstation friend, we came to taste the goodness and the admire the presentation at Dim Sum Yuen.  The place has a nice ambiance, neat and clean to our eyes and not noisy at all unlike the other restaurants selling dim sum.  Menus were given to us upon seating and we just have to mark whatever we wanted on a piece of paper.  I prefer it this way, we can order without having to say "No" to those normal dim sum carriers in the restaurant.  We did not have high expectation on the food, perhaps due to the non-crowding in the restaurant.  Well, we were wrong in thinking such.  The food we ordered were up to our expectation or should I say beyond... Four of us agree heartily that we must come back again soon!
First impression on the tea set... Passed!!
And now the food....
Steamed pork ribs...
My girl will love this, I am sure!
Radish with its condiments...
Sticky rice with chicken and sausages... soft and tasty... 
Chee Cheong Fun...
Clear porridge for me... 
Tomyam Fish Cake... 
I like these Swans....
They are actually Yam with meat fillings... 
Very nicely done and tasty too... 
Desserts.... Peanut balls with black sesame fillings...
And "three birds in a cage"

One flew out for modeling effect... 
Oh yes, to our nice surprise, we met our ex-colleague here... 
She retired more than 20 years ago....
Good to see her again and we called her to come over and have a chat with us...
Many thanks to her, she picked up our tab as she left the place earlier...
Really appreciate that, KT!1
That gives me another reason to love this place!
LOL...

  4. What is that? A chip in the bowl of steamed pork ribs...and the chee cheong fun too? They should not use it anymore - it may harbour bacteria. I would ask them to take it back and give me a new bowl, one that is not chipped.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
