Big Portions At Houston Cafe

Last evening I took my mom, my sister and her kids to Houston Cafe. They have never been there and they welcome the idea readily. Houston Cafe is in town, just next to the Ipoh City Hotel. We were the first customers, reaching there around 7pm... Good, I love to see empty tables so that our food will be served without waiting long till our stomachs growl and growl... LOL....

There were five of us and I ordered five dishes... my mistake... I should have ordered four dishes instead since the portions were quite big actually....
I ordered Assam Curry Fish Head... not to be missed...
Pumpkin with minced chicken meat.... very nicely cooked...
the lady recommended their Smoked Chicken that comes with a bowl of blended ginger...
A very nice combination!
 Young spinach to "neutralize" the hot curry... :)
 And of course, not to be missed...
The Mango Kerabu...
These dishes are more than enough for the five of us... 
Can feed at least 6 to 7 persons.... 
As for the price, the bill came to RM104 plus fruits and drinks....
Pricey or not, as long as the food is fabulous...
We don't mind going again and again....

  1. Quite pricey considering there is no prawn or fish. Food looks great except the smoked chicken looks like normal steamed chicken to me. I would peel off the chicken skin.

  2. Yes, I also peel though I wouldn't mind eating if I do not have high cholesterol!

  8. RM104 for 6-7 pax is quite okay right? And the food looks good too.

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
