All By Myself In The Best Restoran, Ipoh

The Best Restoran, it is named.... but is it really the best?  :)

I went to The Best Restoran this evening for my dinner.  This is my second time there but I have not blogged about it before because then I did not know what the name was and secondly, I think I hadn't start blogging then...

But what I did know that this restaurant (Ipoh has many restaurants with or without air-con, they are also called restaurants) serves the most varieties of soups.  I am a soup lover, I drink any kind of soup as long as not too bitter... and since I am feeling kind of "soupy" this evening, I opted for this soup restaurant....
While waiting, I noticed these herbs displayed on the walls...
Anyone can tell me what those words mean? :)

Upon entering, I saw a few patrons having this on their table...
Feeling curious, I ordered one too..
Double Stewed Coconut With Scallop...
Inside consists of black chicken with lots of herbs and One scallop....
The soup has a nice coconut fragrant... something special a bit ... pricing at RM16
For myself, I ordered a mini claypot of Lemon Grass Chicken....
I love the lemon grass smell....
The chicken is beautifully marinated and soft... just nice for me...
Dipping them in "cilipadi" and putting them into the mouth... hmmm...
Satisfying... for a price of RM6
Well, that is my dinner...
The coconut soup is quite special actually...
It can be shared by 2 or 3 depending on how soupy you are...
As for me, I don't mind drinking it All By Myself...

  5. I have never seen anything like this coconut soup. I love soup, too! We eat it many times a week. Here, they are saying that coconut milk, water, and oil are very good for your health.

  20. I don't think I can finish drinking the coconut soup all by myself. I have tried this coconut soup before - very "sweet" - taste from the coconut flesh. The rice looks good though for RM6 only.

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...
