Dinner For Five At Zaitun Multi Cuisine Family Restaurant, Ipoh

DINNER TIME....

I thought I would still feel full after the heavy morning's breakfast and lunch but it did not seem so.  By 6pm, my stomach was feeling kind of "empty" inside.... definitely not due to my high metabolism rate but maybe due to the 40 minutes of walking exercise at my own home.  LOL... Using the iPad and my bluetooth speaker, I tuned in to the walking exercise on youtube and turned the volume on high.  Walk, walk, walk on my yoga mat for 40 minutes non stop... Sweat, come on, sweat... and after that, then I felt so good during dinner time!

My friends came to pick me up at 6.30pm and we went to old town to a newly-opened family restaurant called Zaitun, located on Market Street.  Zaitun means "olive" and it is actually a mixture of Arabic and Indian dishes.  But we were equally surprised there is pizzas too in the menu... When it comes to ordering, we definitely needed help.  The names in the menu looks "foreign" to us... and thanks to the friendly staff, we have these served in no time.
Bread Basket which consists of a variety of Naan... 
Garlic, cheese, sesame and what else, I have forgotten already...
This set cost RM30
Potatoes with green beans curry....
Spinach...
Curry chicken...
Of course the names of these dishes are more exotic written in the menu... 
I am using layman's term to name these... LOL... 
And mushroom pizza... which we can forgo the next round...
Three of us ordered Mango Lassie... RM10
Thick and sweet... 
Three dishes and a pizza with drinks all in cost around RM140
And the diners marking their presence at Zaitun's....

  1. The pizza looks delicious! You have a lot of determination to exercise for so long, and more room for food then!

  2. Good for you to exercise so long. Wish I was that motivated, because it's definitely something I need to do more of. That mango lassie looks interesting, and I know I`d love the Naan bread basket.

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...
