Choy Kee Restaurant In ipoh Garden, Ipoh

Our main intention to come by here is for called Ikan Haruan aka Snakehead... heard that the chef in Choy Kee, Ipoh Garden can whoop up two different dishes with one fish. Unfortunately, we were told that there was a shortage of fish on that day and we ended up taking these instead.  Anyway, they were not too bad and we would love to come by here again to try their other dishes as well.  For this time, we ordered ...
Salted minced meat ... goes well with the rice...
Steamed Talapia with lots of sauce.... not very spicy...
Four Big Heaven Kings...meaning Four Types Of Beans...
Only three dishes for the three of us, they were more than enough... 
This is what I called Abundant Food to be enjoyed...
The bill came to RM52... 
For me, it is justified... 


  1. Hmmm... quite "standard" for the dishes, i would love to see how the chef prepares for the snakehead fish

    1. Hope one day I will be able to taste that too!

  2. I like talapia fish provided there is no fishy smell. Like it steamed, deep fried or sweet & sour. Price quite reasonable.

  3. The sauce for the fish looks a lot and yummy! Must be good with rice!

  4. Ahhhhhhh!!!! Tilapia!!! Just got one big one from Annie Kiu's mum. Now I know how I will cook it. Slurpsssss!!!!! :D

  5. oh, snakehead fish?? is it what we used to called as "dor man yu" here?? so you missed that and surely makes you wanna go back to the same place and try right?? haha, two dishes from the same fish, interesting!! but the other dishes you ordered also nice mah, ngam my taste leh, except that i will pick those lady's fingers and petai out and leave them aside lah, haha..

    the salted minced meat is something new and special to me woh.. normal steam minced meat, then they deep fried until crunchy??

    1. It was a bit crunchy and satish bec of the salted fish but it goes well with rice....

    2. fuyoh!! macam ni i LIKE a lot!!!

  6. The salted meat with rice would be my favorite!

  7. Wah, kiu soong again ahh? Nice.. Oohh, this time got gravy ya, for the rice, kekeke.. The gravy from the fish is very "choong mei" (heavy taste) already.. Can eat a lot of rice with that alone.. I guess the gravy is "zha cheong" (tauchu)..

    By the way, Betsy replied my email and asked me to provide pictures to get approval from the management. Thanks for sharing again ya!

  8. Wah many meals and only rm52. Next time bring me la.

  9. Yum yum. I would like that salted minced meat.

    RM52 only? So cheap.

  10. So like one person has a dish to finish, hehe!!!

  11. Around RM17++ per person ok lah, not too expensive, not too cheap.

  12. The servings are big and the bill was definitely cheap! I love what you ate and could eat 2 plates of rice!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
