Buntong Fried Noodles And Other Ipoh Treasures For Dinner

FOR DINNER I TOOK MY FRIENDS TO BUNTONG FRIED NOODLES along Osborne Street... we reached there around 7pm and the place was almost crowded as usual... I heard that the quality has gone down but then it did not deter the crowd... so I guess what I heard was proven wrong... Once famous always famous, this is Ipoh...

We ordered a few dishes and they turned out pretty alright... none to perfection but then I am not that picky when it comes to chinese food... call me bias!

 The mihoon is still very tasty and "heong".... RM12
 not easy to fry the fine noodles while keeping them intact... 
Koay Teow in gravy is their signature dish... RM12
One of my friends commented that the lard taste was not there anymore...
Maybe they don't use lard anymore...
Well, no lard means not so unhealthy in a way :)

For side dishes, we ordered 10 fish balls....
Ate up 6 then only I remember to take a picture!
It cost RM1.20 for each and though it is pricey, the quality is there...

Steamed cuttlefish...

Each bite we took, the "cholesterol-ness" pitted out...
That was how my friend expressed...
hahahaha...
That really discouraged us from finishing them all...

Some kind of small chicken...
That is most well-explained...
Too sweet for our liking..
We preferred it to be gingerly seasoned than honeyed...
For the above two dishes, it cost RM39
That was our dinner for four.....
One of us in the midst of food enjoyment..
And two of us from the Empat Sekawan.... 
Apart from the food, it is the good company that really counts...

  1. Have been there a few times, we still like the noodles. The fish balls very good. Have not tried the cuttlefish nor the deep fried chicken yet. Good company is the most important.

  2. I love all the dishes you ordered here, Claire. Everything is what I love to eat. I am a Hakka and being Hakka, I love my bihun. That fried mihun is my cup of tea. I just had one last Sunday and I love the way they fry it without been too soft or broken into pieces.

    That steamed cuttlefish is worth to die for. Think of cholesterol after the meal. Hehe. Yummy spring chicken.

  3. Yes, my bihun all pecah pecah one especially using the finer Thai ones - the China ones are harder, will not break so easily. Never mind, can just use spoon to eat, no need for chopsticks. Hehehehehe!!!!

    Aiyor...ordered sotong, did not dare to eat, could not finish!!! So sayang lah... I would tapao...and eat a bit each day over the next few days!

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?

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...
