Special Taste In Ipoh Garden Marpoh

One of the most popular eatery place in Ipoh is Marpoh Restaurant, located in Ipoh Garden. Business is very brisk, it opens for lunch and for dinner.  My family likes to come here for meals, prices are reasonable and many of their dishes are tasty too.  It started with one shophouse many years ago and expanded to two and during festive seasons, the first storey is also used to accommodate us, the patrons... :)

I had a nice dinner with my family and for the three of us, we ordered something kind of special....
Marpoh signature dish...
Their own-made beancurd with diced meat...
The sauce is simply appetizing....
If we could, this one dish alone is can go with our rice...
Eggplants with fish paste...
Their gravy is also suitable for white rice....
Oh... this is very "unhealthy!"
But I cannot resist ordering this...
Braised "stomach" with lots of garlic, chillies and whatever...
Simply tasty to our buds!
Three large dishes... for three persons...
Normally I don't take Big Bowl of rice..
But for this particular dinner, I could finish the whole Big bowl of rice!
The price?
It cost RM36 with rice and 3 glasses of water....
That is why the Brisk Business here.  :)

  3. The first two dishes - tofu and the brinjal dishes are enough for me. Too troublesome for me to eat the belly dish as I would be trying to pick out all the fatty bits. Price is sure good - no wonder they have good business.

  11. You have got 3+1 dish o.O? One complimentary form the bozz haha..sudah terlebih pixz on the 4th. Used to love gravy until Mango said they are the worst to go with rice coz all the MSG are in the gravy the most. Now gotta listen and eat without gravy.

  14. The 3 dishes are so appetizing and the bill was cheap lah.
    Tofu is healthy and very tasteless so any sauce will make it delicious.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
