Dinner For Six At Soo Har Yee Restaurant, Bercham Ipoh

SOO HAR YEE is the name of this restaurant, it reminded me of Stephen Chow's movie in which he portrayed a Beggar with this name too.  That is how I remember the name of this restaurant, famous for their soft bread.  We have three choices of fillings, curry chicken, prawns or crabs and we opted for spicy sweet prawns for our dinner last Friday.  

With the Covid19 still lingering, this restaurant was affected as well.  Those days this place was filled to the brim and on that day, we were the first customers even though it was already 6.30pm.  Business does look bleak nowadays.... 

There were 6 of us and we ordered the following dishes to fill our tummies..... 
Their signature bread... soft and nice.... 
The prawns are fresh and the sauce was out of the world... 
Simply the Best!
This is called "Chew Yim Pai Kwat" meaning salty meatbones
But it came out sweet and there was no bones... 
Perhaps we got the name wrong or we expected something else which is salty... 
It tasted like BBQ pork instead... 
A bit too sweet for my liking...
This dish fetch some compliments cos the meat was crispy and well marinated...... 

Two plates of noodles...
Nothing to shout about.... 
We can forgo that the next time... 
With three bowls of rice, the bill for this dinner came to RM178... 
If we come again the next time, we will go for the crabs and steamed clams...

  2. I love the bread with curry inside even though I am not too sure about it being wrapped with cling film inside - safe or not, plastic plus heat! All the dishes, I super like!!!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
