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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
