Our Tasty And Pricey Lunch At Moon Flower Restaurant, Ipoh

PRICEY AND TASTY.... We did not know till we found out when we visited this new restaurant recommended in the one of the social media.  Restaurant Moon Flower is located in Tawas, on the way to AEON Klebang.  It was quite out of the way for us but that did not deter us from going and tasting the food at one lunch hour.  Though it was a weekday, the restaurant was quite full, so the food here must be good?  We waited for half an hour or more before our dishes arrived.... 

One mistake though on our part... we did not ask the price of the fish we ordered... good taste, fresh clams... and the fish itself came to around RM115 or RM135, around there approximately.  LOL... That was when we paid the bill, the total came to nearly RM180 for our lunch of 4.... 
This is the place.... 
And this is the fish.... steamed with fresh clams... 
I give credit for the freshness.... 
Fresh and springy.... 
Don't ask me the name of the fish... 
I can only remember that it is in the "Patin" family 
and much more expensive than the latter... 
Recommended to us is the pork ribs wrapped with this bread.... 
I think it cost RM35
And greens which receives praises from us....RM15... 
Wild ferns in sourish spicy sauce... 
Very appetizing.. 
And their special Lard Rice!
Brings back old memories of yester-years...
My mom used to feed us siblings when we were very small....
Lard, soy sauce and raw eggs... during those day...
But I think this egg is not raw.... 
Anyway, we shared this bowl of rice which cost RM6....
And of course, we had plain rice too... and drinks...
So the total bill came to around RM180....
We might come again, just got to remember to ask the price of the fish first...
Good thing it is not hundreds or thousands as we read in the news!
LOL....

  1. More often than not, fish will be the one which costs the most right? :D

  2. 180 for 4!!! I guess the fish takes the cake, doesn't look like much, other than that.

  3. Food looks good even though it is on the expensive side.

  4. Fish with that price is reasonable in kl especially when it is fresh and delicious.

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?

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…
