Amica In Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh

Come Sunday, the four of us "scratched" our heads again... thinking of the place for our breakfast... or should I say brunch? It was almost 11am when we set out from our house and I drove south this time... I mean we ended up in Ipoh Garden South...

There are a few coffeeshops there and I guess most of the good food would have finished by this time.  I did not have any shop in mind when Amica caught my eye.  Amica is along the RHB Bank in Ipoh Garden South, just opposite Pretty Pets.

There were still a crowd there so I guess the food was not finished yet... True enough... food is still abundant there except for the nyonya cakes and kueh.... but the Uncle's dumplings caught my eye... I ordered a few of these to eat while waiting for the food....
 I chose one of each... they look different from the normal ones...
The black one is nice.. charcoal something?
The filling is kaya, I like it...
Then the flower type of dumpling is also nice, my girl likes it...
And the last yellowish one has black sesame fillings... 
I got up again and went to get another two types...
This one also looks special...
Has black sesame and white on the outside...
And the filling is mashed sweet potatoes!
Something I like to eat too....
Each of these dumpling cost RM1.50
Tried their steamed glutinous rice too...
Not bad... tasty... RM3.50 is not too steep...
 As for the food, we ordered Chee Cheong Fun...
My friend ordered it actually and she said "Okay-la..."
This is mine.... not a good choice... 
The noodles are just too little for me... 
hahahahaa...
 My girl ordered Hakka noodles... 
I didn't try it but she finished all of it... so it must be good...
It came with a bowl of wanton noodles...
 And her friend ordered a plate of Wanton noodles with Braised Duck....
The Hakka noodles and this one above only cost RM7... 
Good pricing!
I will try this one day.... 
And of course, the dumplings too.... 
I like all of them!

  9. Ipoh has a lot of Hakka is it? Because looks like Hakka noodle is pretty common there. Not so in Kuching although Hakka and Hokkien are predominant. ;)

    Indeed unique-looking buns you ordered. Very creative.

  15. This is the first time I heard of dumplings with mashed sweet potatoes! I would love to eat this!
    Seems like now the trend for dumplings have expanded and stuffed with almost anything edible & nice.
    Just like crow's meat pies and dumplings as example! Ever tried this yummy and blueky food? LOL
    I experienced a lot of dumplings in China that send my eye brows up. They even have salted vegies, rabbit meat and anything.... Eeeeeeeee

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 …
