Homecooked Style Dishes At Sin Hup Kee Restaurant @ Ipoh

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I last went to Sin Hup Kee restaurant along Jalan Leong Sin Nam... This place was a frequent joint for my kids when they were very young and ever since they left Ipoh, we did not go there anymore.  Never thought of this place when they come back for their holidays mainly because there is not enough time to cover the food joints. LOL...

When my sister suggested going here for our dinner one fine evening, I was all for it.... If we want fast service, it is wiser to reach there around 6pm... and that was exactly what we did.... true enough, there were just a few tables occupied and by the time we finished our dinner, the tables were almost occupied in this double shophouse restaurant.  Their dishes are more like homecooked food at its simplest form...
Only three of us but we ordered four dishes!
How about that..... hmmmmm...

Their signature chicken in their special sauce.... 
Yes, the dishes came in small portion since there were only three of us... 
Looks like roti canai with egg.... 
This one with added minced meat... 
The young fresh sweet potato leaves.... 
And the appetizing Assam Stingray Curry... 
Yes, it is indeed very appetizing.... with lots of greens too...
And a Happy Face to say it all... 
Bill came to around RM55 or so with rice and drinks... 


  1. Yeahhhhh!!!!!! I remember this place! You and Elin took me and my entourage to Ipoh there for lunch. Loved the food, so very very nice! Glad to know that it is still going strong after all these years.

  3. seeing this is making me's 7:30pm and I yet to take dinner!

  4. This one used to be our favourite place too. We never fail to order the signature deep fried chicken and assam curry stingray. Yummy!

  5. Assam Stingray Curry is so good to eat with rice!

  6. The food looked good.

    I can't remember if I ever had sweet potato leaves. Does it taste like local spinach?

    Stingray was not popular with Chinese in Kuching so I was told but I cannot verify if there was any truth in it. I guess it is not a cheap fish when eating out.

  7. I am interested in the signature chicken in special sauce

  8. My mouth is watering for that curry!! OH yum!!

  9. It seems Ipoh have many nice food from what both you and Nancy posted, must visit Ipoh to taste all the nice food one of these days, what are the nice places of interest in Ipoh?

    1. Sight seeing not so much... one or two days can cover all.. but when it comes to food, will take many days to cover... hahaaa

  10. It has been a while since I tasted assam curry sting ray. Very appetizing.

    Lovely gathering and food with your sis. 3 of you?? You and your 2 sis??

    1. Yes, just three of us.. with one handsome boy..

  11. Hmm, I think these dishes look like those I get from those zhu char places in Penang. I guess we all like those down to earth, home cooking style...

  12. I will prefer stingray in BBQ form, hehe...

  13. So cheap leh ( hopefully restauran owner dont see this comment)

    1. Dont say cheap.. very sensitive to some readers.. heheehe

  14. The food looks delicious and good always. I always love Assam Fish curries anytime.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
