Dining IN At Morel Restaurant

TRYING OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME... and there might not be a second time for us... for a long while, I am sure!  LOL... 

Since I am now back in Ipoh, my friends suggested going to Morel for western fine dining.  I had not heard of this place before and I am all IN to try out wherever they suggest.  The pandemic is still looming everywhere, so to avoid crowds, we booked the reservation for four at six pm in the evening.  This is the time with the least people.... right?

Yes, we were the early birds.... menu came and there was not really a wide selection of choices to choose from.  I ended up taking fish... and now I have forgotten what type of fish, but I do remember the pricing very well.... LOL.... 

Formerly in SOHO area and now they shifted here to a bungalow at
Chung Thye Phin Road.... 
The ambience is beautiful...
I did not take many pictures though.... 
I couldn't remember the name of the soup already...
Just look at the pictures only... ya! 
I know this is salmon...
We ordered two sets of this fish.... 
A small piece no doubt but enough for me though....
For this dish, it cost RM150....yes!

And now... for the price.... 
The bill came to RM500 over...
Not surprising when we screened over the menu from the start... 
LOL....
Anyway... an eye opener for the four of us...
At least we came and we tried... 
And that was it... 
LOL...

  1. Well, it looks like it was still a different and beautiful experience. The building is lovely, and the inside very fancy and large.

  2. Oooooo...I love that old colonial style building, what a lovely place...with some really exquisite dishes to match...and the price!!! Shocking!!! LOL!!! If it is really so out of this world nice, I would reserve it for special occasions. I thought you would have had enough of western cuisine after 6 months in the US?

  4. Ya, for fine dining, the prices are like that. I am so curious on what type of fish you ordered. Maybe there is an online menu somewhere that I could consult.

  6. Haiyah, you just back from the West and off you went for Western food?? Lol.

    Fine dining, once a while or special occasion, ok lah. But I like the bungalow, cool. We have few houses around, Chinese owned, now mostly abandoned .

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
