An Overpriced Meal At Kopisan, Lawan Kuda

OVERCHARGED.... ?

We have been to this shop several times last year and most times, we went there for coffee and toasted bread.  My friends even had make friends with the owner, I mean just talking talking la... not specifically those "friends" whom we go out with... 

Back to our lunch at this Kedai Gemuk in Kopisan, Gopeng, the reason we went there was to buy their Pandan White Coffee, instant 3in1 packets.  My son told me that the coffee that they manufactured is very nice.  And naturally, when son says nice, the mama will surely go and buy some more, right... even though the drive takes around 30 minutes to reach!

OK, back to our lunch again.... LOL.... for the first time I ordered mihun and a few others.... and when I saw the itemized bill, I was a bit ... ok, only a bit astonished.  Oh by the way, it is not a cafe, it is just a kedai kopi, a small coffeeshop in a very small village, though small, the prices can be quite high.  LOL... 

I ordered a plate of economy mihun... 
Small portion, I don't mind... 
Nothing in the mihun... I don't mind...
But I minded when I saw the bill....
It cost RM4.... !!  Really??
Then the Boss said RM2.50 for mihun and RM1.50 for the sambal...
Seriously?
Toasted Bread.... kaya and butter.... RM4.80...
Another What from me... LOL...
I asked him why so expensive...
He said .. good butter...
OH...
A small bowl of porridge...
This one, I could not remember how much.... 
No peanuts, no meat... not visible... LOL...
But since I cannot remember the price... I cannot comment...
Their sticky rice with kaya is nice.... 
Again, I did not see the price...
By then, I was just telling myself... next time, just don't order mihun or bread... 
LOL... 
My barley water with lemon... RM3.50...
Normal barley in Ipoh city is RM2... 
Add two pieces of lemon.. oh well... no comment....
Besides the above food, there are another two cups of coffee...
All in, the bill came to around RM22.... 
Lastly not least, this cost RM20 each...
NO comment....
I blame it on the Covid-19...
People just have to make ends meet after the long lockdown!
LOL...

  1. I've been to places like this. Of course I will never go again, never mind how nice the food is. Business is business - you do not take advantage of your unsuspecting customers like that. This kind of places deserve to go bankrupt and close down!

  3. I just cursed my stupidity yesterday for treating an old friend to eat Prwan Mee at The Champs. One bowl RM28.00!!! 2 bowls RM56.00! Cry me.

    Now I read yours, I wanna laugh too.

  4. Well, the food does look good. But maybe not worth all this money. Wish I knew how much it cost in English, maybe I will google it! i am guessing you will not go back! I wonder if their business will drop off because of this?

  8. Where did my comment go? I did comment yesterday about the prices being like prices in nice restaurants in kl. Maybe it is to cater for tourists and not locals.

  9. Sambal also charge? Goodness, I thought it should be complimentary.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
