1919 In IPOH Garden

Lunch was at 1919 restaurant in Ipoh Garden East before we proceeded to watch a movie at Kinta City. Girlie wanted to see Hannah Montana, leaving us no choice but to follow her... :) two guys and two gals...

As Gab said, this restaurant has a nostalgic feeling there, with the marble tables and paintings on the wall, it is like a restaurant cum gallery..., right Gab?

Coming back to this lunch, 1919 does serve nice dishes, they have their own signature dishes, some shown below and there are lots more in the menu...

the photos/pictures on the wall..

fried chicken coated with salted egg

dry assam fish

nearer version...

this is brinjals
their speciality too..

crispy on the outside
but soft inside..

with some sweet sauce as toppings...

and lastly, mixed vegetables..
i like the asparagus and the cashew nuts..

this's the layout...minus the brinjals..
the price?
it cost RM66
endless servings of rice and chinese tea ...

  12. They cook everything with salted egg these days, it seems - bitter gourd with salted egg, crabs with salted egg... Excuse me, hopping over to Gabriel's to look at the photos and drool! Hahahahahaha!!!

  13. We used to order these dishes too but we think they are rather expensive, so we only went there ONCE IN A BLUE MOON!

  14. cynthia, soon fatt la.. just renovated.. can sing karaoke in their rooms..

    cindy, yes, the dishes can be pretty small.. i also go once a blue moon..

  16. hmmm.. I like to taste the dry assam fish and mixed veggies here

  17. some said cheap and some said expensive..hahaha.. so it depends on individual.. as for me, once eating out, one person is normally around 15rm per pax... i mean for normal dinner.. so plus minus...
