Ladies Night Out To Sam Poh Restaurant, Ipoh

At least once a week, I will have dinner with my lady friends... When they come to pick me, the first question that comes to their mind is "Where and what to eat tonight?" They know I surf a lot online for FOOD in IPOH and most times, I will tell them where the place is and what to order... (Yes, I am a "food explorer" in other words, "Wai Sik meow" in cantonese)

Back to Food Exploring, I heard that this shop Sam Poh Restaurant serves moderately priced dishes and yet tasty too! Being an Ipohian, I know very well that once you hear the words tasty and cheap, ahh haa.... the crowd will definitely be there before you do! 

To avoid the crowd and queue, go as early as you can.  If you can reach the place by 6pm, then you are safe...Heeding that advice, you can be assured of a table and the food served within minutes..

As for me and my friends, the three of us ended up ordering these for our dinner...

Ordered Butter fried crayfish...
their signature beancurd with loofah (sing kwa)
love this dish...
We didn't feel like taking rice that night and ended up with this...
crispy fried noodles with seafood varieties...
Its their signature dish... stewed sea cucumber, mushrooms, fresh scallops and vegetables...
I thought this dish would be expensive...
To our amazement, it is only RM15!  (3 persons)
And the bill for the 3 dishes came to RM36 only!
Well, what do you say?

Sharing is feasting...

  1. The noodles look really very good!

  2. Only RM36 for all those awesome food. So cheap. Craving for the noodles, hehehe!!!...and a lot of ingredients.

  3. stp: next time I will ask them to put koay teow noodles instead, might be tastier with that.. :)

    irene: i feel that the price is quite reasonable...

  4. food looks great as always but i guess for me that creamy beancurd with loofah stood out the most

  5. i also find that signature noodles very nice!! and that huge plate is only RM15, what a steal~~ and total bill is only RM36, so unbelievable!!

  6. I like your style ...
    have a dinner together with your lady friends.. It is really fun...

  7. mecoy: i like that dish too..

    sk: wanna come IPOH? :)

    sp: yes.. once a week to catch up.. :)

  8. I like this type of noodles, very nice!

    And the price is very reasonable!

  9. I like noodles with lots of liu..yummy!

  10. The fried noodles look the best to me here. Here, people who arrive for dinner before 5:00 P.M. usually get a discount. It is mostly the seniors who do it and it is called the early bird special! Some of the young ones will make fun of how early seniors eat and go to bed.

  11. hayley: yeah i feel it is reasonable too..

    wenn: go and try next time! :)

    ginny: oh, we do not have early bird dinners esp with chinese food.. but the other day i went for japanese buffet, they have a discount for early birds! :)

  12. sharon: OK, let me know when! hehehe..

    mery: Not too bad , i can say..

  13. Wow sharing is feasting huh? I like it! Rofl

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
