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.

  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.

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...
