Tai You Coffeeshop Along Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh

THE LAST TIME I WENT TO THIS TAI YOU COFFEESHOP WAS IN 2009.... no joke!  When I was still working, I remember my colleagues and I went there quite frequently those days but somehow along the years go by, this shop has been "deleted" from our mind.  Oh yeah!  Now I remember, the stall which served these dishes in 2009 had changed hands with another, it was previously done by a husband and wife team... then they left and handed over by another man and we did not like to go there after the couple left.....

This was in 2009 and the shop is still more or less the same today.....
Tai You along Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh
Famous for their steamed fish head then....
Green leaves....
And omelette...
Those were what we usually ordered then.....
When I came back from Europe recently, I was taken to this shop again....
Six years later..... 
I think the stall has changed hands again... not sure who is who now...
Now it is cooked by an elderly man and helped by a young boy.....
We ordered Bitter Gourd soup.... 
and I only remember to take picture after drinking half way through..
It was also an enormous fish head....
Price has since increased... of course....
For just two dishes it cost around RM46 with rice for the three of us...
Fish is not cheap nowadays....
Or perhaps we have to wait another 6 years to go there again...
hahhahaha....

  1. No need to wait another 6 years to go back. Anytime also can. But we have many other places to go to now!

  4. Hahaha, wait another 6 years to go back there. If you do that, I think it would have changed hands again. I prefer to eat steamed fish instead of steamed fish head.

  8. It's like that lah, when the original people left, we tend to not go back because we are so used to them. But it looks like the food is not bad.

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

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... 

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
