Old Town Kopitiam At M Boutique Hotel, Ipoh

Long lunch hour today... Elin and I were undecided where to go for our lunch. Both of us were not very hungry and secondly, the weather was really discouraging. We wanted something light and at the same time, the place must be cooling and nice. :) After some suggestions, both of us agreed to go to Old Town Kopitiam at M Boutique Hotel.
M Boutique Hotel or is it M Hotel Boutique?
The reception/lobby reminded me of those chinese medicine shops
during the Ching/Quan /Dynasty as shown in TVB series...
(I guess I've seen too much Astro these days!)
I didn't take any pictures of the reception, not so comfortable doing so...
But I did ask about the rates though...
For standard room, it is around RM200 inclusive of breakfast for two..
Not too bad... 
Government rates is around RM160.... 
We proceeded to the Old Town Kopithiam...
 Once seated, we were requested to order our drinks first...
As for the food, Elin was busy browsing through the menu...
Both of us ordered our Honey Lemon Ice drink... 
It was so quenching and nice especially during such hot humid weather...
I wanted something light... so I ordered Laksa  RM9,90
And Elin ordered a Banana French Toast RM7.90
Just look at my laksa bowl!  So enormous, right?
Really worth the price cos I just love it!
Not too sour... not too spicy.. thick with sardine...
And in such a cooling place, I don't mind paying a bit more...
Definitely will come by here again for the Laksa again!

  7. I don't remember seeing any banana french toast in our Old Town menu in KL.. Ok maybe got but macam tak perasan pulak.. These few days we didn't go out for lunch coz so hazy, nobody wanted to drive.. So either we bring food from home or tapau from downstairs canteen..

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
