Ipoh Hometown Restaurant Is Lonely And Alone...

It was such a pitiful dinner in Ipoh Hometown Restaurant last night... I have seen and heard much about this Ipoh Restaurant few times but I have never been there till yesterday. We arrived at the restaurant around 7pm.... the whole row of shops looked so quiet and secluded....nevertheless the five of us walked in .....

A lady came to take our order... it was so quiet that only our voices could be heard in this two shop lots restaurant...well, it was good in a sense that we could get our food fast or at least we thought we would... but we were wrong... the food took much longer than we expected ....
These were what we ordered...
meat with tomato sauce... 
beancurd special ... 
beneath the beancurd is steamed eggs... 
steamed herbal chicken...
the chicken had a "frozen" smell...
sambal belacan paku pakis...
among the four dishes, we favour this one ... 
this is complimentary... sort of "sweet-less" 
  
the four dishes.. portions are big no doubt...
if only the chicken and the pork taste good...
The bill came to RM60 for the five of us...
Reasonable actually...
 But the sad thing is....
when we left around 8pm, the whole restaurant became empty again...
Such a pity....

  13. Something must be wrong with this restaurant then. Otherwise, sure a lot of people going one. My place also have low spending power, but many restaurants are crowded in the evening.

  14. Maybe not many people coming here because the service is slow? Or maybe less promotion.. Hmm.. That belacan paku pakis looks yum

  15. RM60 only for all those dishes?? consider very cheap for a dinner like this. Probably lesser crowd on week days.

  16. yan: i think it could be due to locality and not enough of advertisement...


    bella: food was not bad actually...


    agnes: it was a sunday.. :)

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

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

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...
