Tasty Dishes At Sam Po Restaurant, Ipoh Garden East, Ipoh

COOLING NIGHT...   It has been raining for the last couple of days, cloudy days in the mornings and rains when it comes to evening.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con for the last couple of nights.  Good in a way but not so good when it comes to going out for dinner.   

My friends came to pick me up for dinner around 6.30pm and this time we went to Sam Po, Ipoh Garden East.  The last time I went there was many years ago, maybe around 8-10 years ago?  Not sure, anyway, when they suggested going there, I readily agreed.  Even though it was drizzling, I was surprised that most of the tables were either reserved or already filled with patrons like us.  

For the five of us, we ordered four dishes such as these.... 
Claypot curry fish head filled with vegetables as well... 
Very appetizing!
3 cups chicken... not sure why it is called by this name...
One thing I know is that this dish is filled with basil!
I love the smell and taste of Basil in my dish!
The basil enhances the flavour of this 3 cup chicken.... 
Another appetizing dish!
Yam basket filled with assorted vegetables... 
Beancurd ... I never thought this dish would be so yummy!
Credit goes to the toppings... 
The generous toppings of dried shrimps, onions, garlic and spring onions is the winner!
Overall, it was a very tasty dinner.... 
No one had any negative comment to say... 
Even though the cost of this 4 dishes came to RM90.50 plus rice and drinks... 
Not too bad... 
We might come again to taste other dishes some day!
(Provided no MCO.... so sad!)

  1. Hot or cold my aircon must be on plus a table fan by my side, cannot tahan panas! If I see a place with a lot of people, I would go elsewhere, social distancing #staysafe #staywell The tofu really looks so good, never seen any looking as good.

  2. All the dishes look good, price is ok too and I like the yam basket the best! 3 cups chicken is a Taiwan dish. It uses 3 different kind of marinates so that is why it is called 3 cups.

  4. The food basket is so cute. You must have so many restaurants there, I just cannot imagine. We have only a few.

  5. I also ate at that restaurant many moons ago!

    The basil leaves are in trend now as restaurants do add them with other vegetables. I love them too!

  7. It has been raining this weekend at night. Cold day today.

    I want the curry fish. And yam basket as well. Hehe. Had yam basket few weeks ago but the basket wasn't nice. We ended up finished the mixed veggies in the 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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
