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...

    1. Black beans sauce... Common la in the west....

  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!

    1. Chinese owner so the food is very malaysian...

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

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…
