Name The Dish - Assam House, Greentown, Ipoh

Assam House in Greentown Business Centre... Yes, we went there during the festive season. While all the other shops were either full or crowded, we were so glad when we saw a few empty tables in this restaurant... It has been a few years since I last ate in this shop and I couldn't remember much about the food taste...

There were seven of us and these were what we ordered...
Buttered squids....
Claypot Eggplant
Assam Fish Slices....
 The taste ... hmmmm... goes well with rice...
Appetizing....
Steamed 3 types of eggs...
Century eggs, Salted Eggs and the normal type of eggs.. hahahaa....
OK... the question of this post....
What dish is this, can you all guess?  :)
One dish was missing on this table...
The greens... I forgot to take a picture of that...
Another Yummy Meal taken ....
But I was not happy with the price though...
It came to RM160... and I feel it was overpriced..
Perhaps it was due to the festive weekend....

Anyway.....
Just for fun again...
Hope you can guess the dish above...
I will choose one among all the correct answers...  :)

  7. The fish slices look good. I do not recognize the other one at all, will be anxious to find out!

  8. Luckily your nephew is shooting upwards and not expanding sideway. All the food looks so appetising and as for the price I think quite reasonable considering it is CNY time. Want to earn extra. Wild guess is steamed meat with salted veg.

  9. Otak otak?

    You know wat? If I see all other shops are full or crowded yet this one has empty tables, I wont dare to walk inside thinking surely not nice, otherwise why still empty? haha..

    The buttered squid looks so appetizing!! Slurps.

  23. Is this the Assam House that many celebrities went to eat? I think the dish is otak otak too. Good food. On average around 25 per dish after minus rice and drinks for 7 people so consider ok, not too expensive since it is a famous restaurant.

  24. Mun, Assam House has been around for some years now in Ipoh.. the food is considered not bad.. but a bit pricey perhaps..

  25. Have not tried before the steamed 3 types of eggs

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 …
