A Vegetarian Meal For Two In Home Recipe Cafe, Ipoh

I love food but I confess that I am not a "Big Portion" eater ... unbelievable but true... *serious*... Normally I don't take a lot especially during dinner time.  I believe in having a good and heavy meal for breakfast... then something light for lunch and not so heavy during dinner.

Sometimes I opt for a meat-less meal and there is one vegetarian shop which I like to do for dinner.  It is called Home Recipe Cafe or in Mandarin, it is written as "One Family" cafe...

My friend and I are small eaters.... so we ordered these to share among both of us....
One plate of curry vegetarian rice to be shared by both of us.... :)
We ordered a plate of eggplants with basil leaves... 
Sounds good... tastes great!
My friend chose this dish...
She said something fanciful that she has not tried before...
Neither did I.....
Beancurd (Taufoo Pok) stuffed with cooked sengkuang at bottom and alfalfa as toppings... 
There are 4 pieces in one plate... just nice for the two of us...
I would like to order this dish again..
The cooked sengkuang inside adds to the sweetness.. 
Overall, the bill came to RM24...
I really would like to come by here again.... 


Here is the address:
5, Medan Ipoh 1D, 
Medan Ipoh Bistari, 
Ipoh Garden, 31400 Ipoh, Perak.

  1. All looks good. Btw, what is the last dish.? Looks like tofu cut into halves and stuffed with something & deep fried.

    1. Yes, taufoo pok with cooked sengkuang inside and topped with those er.. alfafa?

  2. That's alfalfa I think. Quite interesting, I never seen them cooked like what you had.
    I can't tolerate eggplants vegetarian style, my brain has been programmed to only accept eggplants cooked with sambal

  3. Everything looks good... I love brinjals too.. Mum always braise it with oyster sauce, skin peeled.. MIL pulak likes to deep fry it to make yong taufu or add sambal paste and petai..

    1. Yes, brinjals can be done in many various ways... as I said above.. mine is programmed to eat them any way it is cooked.. hahahaa.. i like the word used by realgunners.. "Programmed" pulak.. hahahaa..

    2. That's the benefit (or hazard) of spending 10 hours a day staring at programming codes in front of the PC @.@

  8. I like! Real vegetables vegetarian, not those gluten imitations but RM12 each for vegetables? Hmmmm....vegetarian meals should be cheaper but instead, it is always more expensive especially when they claim to use this organic, that organic.... Better go chap fan places, pick only the veg. I think I've seen one place here - 3 veg (no meat) only RM2.00.

    1. There are three items on the bill, not two so on average is RM8 per item for the curry rice, brinjal and alfafa tofu so quite good price actually.

      Delete
    2. Yes, you are right, Mun.. three dishes... I know the brinjals is RM12 but not so sure on the stuffed taufoo and the rice.. tonight I might go there again.. :)

      Delete
    3. So cheap ah, Arthur?? RM2 for 3 vege is super cheap nowadays!

      Delete
    4. Chap fan places also not guaranteed all vege will be cheaper. I know a few of them stalls in Petaling Street, if you take 3 vege, the price will be the same as 2 vege 1 meat or 1 vege 2 meat. When you ask, the auntie will declare: "Kam yat choi guai ah!" (Today's vege is expensive!)

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

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
