Trying Out Indonesian Dishes At This Dish, Ipoh

TRYING OUT NEW PLACE...  The six of us went to a new place to try out their Indonesian dishes for dinner yesterday.  Actually it is not a new place, just that a new owner has taken over and changed the name of the restaurant, I guess, cos formerly it was also a cafe with a different name.  I asked the staff and he said that this time instead of just western food, they added in Indonesian cuisine as well.  That was what interest us to go.... 

After said that, the place is called This Dish... not sure why the name is just like that... This Dish and the dishes we ordered to try are as follows:

Tomyam fried rice... 
Not spicy at all and just two to three prawns were noticeable... 
We also shared a plate of Fried Meehoon.... 
6 sticks of Satay RM12
Eggplant with two different types of Sambal toppings... 
BBQ chicken... we like the sauce called Cobek.. a bit sweet and spicy... 
Wild ferns... Paku Pakis...
And their Signature Fried Crispy Fish Talapia... 
And the bill came to around RM136.... 
We were not full to the brim and we went to a hawker centre for our second round! 
Sad to say we were the only patrons from the time we entered and left the restaurant...

  2. Portion not enough for 6 since they were shared around. I like Indonesian cuisine. The eggplant with sambal topping looked tempting.

  7. I love Indonesian food. There was a restaurant in KLCC called House of Sundanese Food. That's where I had crispy fish and they make it standing like that.

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…
