Malaysian Food At Imperial Palace Restaurant, Edinburgh


Before we left Edinburgh, a family of three invited the three of us to a scrumptious dinner at Imperial Palace restaurant.  Using GPS, Aaron managed to find this beautiful chinese restaurant owned by a Sabahan, so it seems.  His friend highly recommended this restaurant and ordered these yummy dishes to satisfy our tummies before we bade goodbye to Edinburgh.

Aubergine with minced meat and salted fish....a real appetizing dish!  
So Malaysian!!
Yong Tau Foo is not excluded.... So nicely cooked to perfection! 
Mixture of three types of meat...roasted pork, bbq char siew and roasted duck!
Even kangkung is availabe here....sambal kangkung, no joke!
Claypot benacurd with meat....
What a appetizing dinner!!  Total cost?  No, we did not ask the host....
We were indeed very thankful and blessed with a sumptuous dinner...
Bading goodbye to Edinburgh, we reached Aberdeen around 10pm plus.... 
A very interesting and fruitful day trip indeed for us!


  1. Wahhhhh!!! Eating Chinese there must be so expensive. The chairs look so English, very nice.

    1. Prices range from £10 onwards... I think it is around 100£ fior the six of us....

  2. The food looked good. Not cheap considering a Chinese restaurant over there. Kangkung!! Must fly over to have fresh stock all the time.

  3. I eyeing the mixture of three types of meat...

  4. Hmm, the yong tau foo... drenched in those sauce then not very Malaysian already XD ... but in Scotland, okay lah... or maybe that is Sabah style yong tau foo...

  5. I like the first 2 dishes...looks so yummy!

  6. The friends know that Reana Claire don't like kwai loh food lah, that's why. All the dishes look good and so local hah..hah... People belanja, so just happily wallop!

  7. Looks like a really fancy restaurant! Even carpeting and high backed chairs!

  8. Wah so nice of your friend to give you all a treat. A taste of home in Edinburgh! How about that. :-)

  9. Food fit for a King! Drooling.

    I thought aubergine with minced meat and salted fish is a regional dish from China.

    1. Is the aubergine with minced meat and salted fish normally cooked with "muy heung hom yee”/fermented and salted fish or a 'copy cat of such fish' by households?

    2. We cook that in malaysia too.. We call them brinjals over here... Not aubergine.. Or maybe this aubergine is rounder and shorter than the local ones..

  10. So nice, your friend.... That first dish, indeed very Chinese style!

  11. What a scrumptious dinner, love all the Chinese Food shown here, when I traveled to Turkey in 1997, I missed Chinese Food too!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
