Sweating For Food In Gunong Rapat

I had another bout of "sauna" again this weekend, this "sweating endlessly" is not done under the appointment of a beautician... but perspiring under the Ipoh sun in Gunong Rapat again! See, nothing stops me... but I think this is it! Two times consecutively within a week is enough... not encouraged to take so often, right?  (especially for age group people like me here.....)
this time I wanted to try their "steamed sotong"
and it was presented like this.... the "kangkong" was perfectly made.. soft and nice..
how to resist not taking?
Ok, for this time only.... 
Another not to missed is the fried stuff that the lady made.....
For these plates, it cost RM11....
See what I meant by "sauna?"
No fan... just a canvas roof topping..
see the crowd?  
most of them order to take away...
how to stand the hot sun in the afternoon?
but for the sake of food, my patience was tested..
and they finally arrived after 15 minutes or so....
I prefer to eat it there and then...
The taste is more "original" this way.  :)
But I can't wait to finish the food and
get back to the cooling air in the car.... 
pheww...enough is enough...


  1. That's my favorite! I'm concern more on the yau yu. Is that fresh??

  2. No way will I queue for anything, never mind how good...thank you very much.

  3. My favourite. Worth the sweating, hehehe!!!...

  4. june: very fresh.. wish it is a healthy food but it is not.. :)

    stp: chat around first to pass time.. sitting down ok.. i cannot stand for long too...

    irene: can lose calories, right?

  5. Notty Claire! Wei....dont eat so much these stuffs ah...not fully well yet... later fall sick susah

  6. I didn't knew there is this place called gunung rapat despite being in Kampar for 3 years already until I read this post.

  7. kathy: now u made me scared and worried.. ok.. cut down, cut down, i must!

    anne: from your place coming to ipoh, just after simpang pulai is gunong rapat on the right..

  8. I wont sweat for food, no matter how good they are? Coz I'll feel very uncomfortable and then wont appreciate the goodness in the food :(

  9. I still can tahan the warmness but not my kids and hubby. Most probably I will have to tapau under such a hot weather..but still better than raining right? the food look delicious to me though!

  10. Sounds kind of miserable! 15 minute wait is not too bad, one evening we waited over an hour for our food!!!

  11. Sotong kangkung!!!

    I was so much in love with this dish, didn't have it for ages because I heard the sotong is bleached in 'something'?

  12. Not a fan of sotong kangkung but I can see the sotong is very huge.

    Need to get a fan la, Claire. I also cannot stand the heat

  13. you were there for lunch yesterday?? hey, i was in Ipoh over the weekend and was in Gunung Rapat to get some "heong peng" yesterday afternoon too~~

  14. even here it is freaking hot

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
