Family Gathering At Grandview Restaurant, Ipoh

Today is exactly one month since my mom's passing.... last Saturday we gathered together and went to the cemetery to put flowers on my parent's tomb. On the way we also stopped at another cemetery to put flowers on my husband's tomb and there is an empty place beside his grave... well, naturally that is for me.... No, I didn't book it in advance.. well, on the positive side, I know that there is a "space" for me....

After all was done, we adjourned for our lunch in Grandview Restaurant.  Thanks to one Facebook group, we came to know this restaurant... I called up to book a room and we were ushered upstairs for room privacy.  
As usual, this is our ice breaker...
SMILE!
Everybody say.... YEEEEEEEE
Eleven of us..... catching up with updates....
Smile... you're on camera!
Soon...the first dish arrived....
All were finished in no time....
Next came the oink oink...
The skin was a bit "tough".....
But the glutinous rice beneath was something to shout about....
The meat was taken out and cooked as one dish........
Steamed village chicken.... tasty....
Steamed fish...
Not sure what this is called....
And their signature dish is this "BOMB" like bread.....
Need some cutting done before it can be eaten.....
The sauce is sweet sour with some shrimps and squids....
Not bad... very appetizing.....
Noodles was the last dish......
Followed by the white fungus and gingko with soya bean....
This set of meal cost RM418...
Hope to try out some other dishes another day....

  5. hmmm, even the Ipoh Food Mayor also need to rely on FB recommendations?? hahaha, so how's this Grandview Restaurant?? i looked at the first dish, this platter is always my favourite.. i guess because i love variety so i can taste a bit of everything, and probably also because usually need to wait for very very very long before dinner starts, and this is always the first dish, haha!! :D

  7. What's that thing at the bottom of that four seasons platter photo? It looks kind of interesting to me.
    For me, the winner would be the crispy oink oink skin with glutinous rice!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
