My first meeting with Wenn in Indulgence at 9am... I thought I was early but no, she was already there before me. It was already 9am and we were practically the first customers of the day....

The Indulgence

Beautiful environment surrounded with greens..

a warm ambiance for those who prefer quiet and serenity..

an end high boutique hotel upstairs..

we were ushered into this beautiful corner..

which corner is the best...

we picked this corner..
comfortable cushions on one side...
after waiting for more than half hour...

Wenn's Pomme Pomme came....

slightly chat potato halves, topped with poach eggs
crispy croissant slices...

spinach and carrot puree...

I chose a Boxed-In

stuffed with egg, turkey cubes, beans, spinach...

with onions in crisp bread with lemon hollandaise
& lemon pepper pearls...
(hahaha... how did i remember all these?)
and the meal came with 2 glasses of fresh fruit juice...

as usual... one for the album...

Many thanks to Wenn for the lovely dovey breakfast meal...
I really enjoyed this special breakfast, my first time ever and hope it won't be the last...
Let's meet up again and this time, let it be on me.... :p

  6. Never heard of this place...must go when Im back.

  7. Wowee!! So glam! Looks like a lovely place and looks very expensive too. Fine dining has arrived in Ipoh!

  8. Oooh... I've never seen fine-dining breakfast like this! You girls really know how to "than" :)

  9. My mom went there once. She said it's very pricey.

    Hmmm, I will visit next time I'm back in Ipoh.

  10. Indulgence, the most classy fine dining restaurant in Ipoh. The chef, Julie Song is a talented chef but her daughter is a bit too snobbish.

  11. looks so yummy... i wish its halal.

  12. Hi Reanaclaire, wow! I love this place. Looks very colonial too. Reminds me of KL's Carcosa. As well touches of Cameron Highland's Fosters Smoke House Inn.

    I bet it must be nice at night. Candle lit dinner?
    You gals sure know how to pick them....and the food looks sinfully delicious, Lee.

  13. So glad you and Wenn had such a lovely meal. That looks fabulous! Yummy!

  15. What a beautiful place. And this is the yummiest looking food you have posted so far!! Wish I had been there!

  16. Looks like a very fancy eating place. Food looks yummy. To me the boxed in looks the best.

  17. Wahh... looks like a very mysterious mansion from the outside. I'm inspired to write something about such place already. =D Imagine... some rich Casanova living in there...bringing some unsuspecting, innocent ladies inside or a rich heiress in need of a convenient husband... walao... I better stop. Imagination is running wild... *pengsan* And it doesn't help that the food is luxurious too!

  18. The food looked a bit too exotic ler. :p

  19. Oh, what a lovely place! The buildings are so colonial... I love houses like that... None of the fancy modern stuff. Hah!!! Elin's asking you, "Fasting on Monday?" She mogok liao, does not want to cook for you... Hehehehehe!!!!
