A Indian Chinese Cuisine At Spice Kitchen, Johor

WE LEFT MARINA BAY SANDS AROUND 6.30PM, wrong move.... To avoid causeway jam, either we have to leave around 3-4pm, (which is rather early) or leave Singapore at 10pm (which is way too late).  We did not pick any of the two options and that was why we got stuck in the Singapore causeway for some time.  Everyone seems to be going to JB during that moment... perhaps for dinner cum shopping?

Anyway, by the time we checked in for our dinner at Spice Kitchen, it was almost 8pm plus.  The four of us were very hungry by then.  Even the cups of coffee and hot soyabean from the casino have long gone by then.  Andy recommended Indian-Chinese food, he said they were good and he was indeed right!  The place was really crowded by the time we entered the premise. 

Another wrong move again.  We did not expect to wait for an hour for our dinner to be served.... our batteries by then were almost flat and out.  Learn a lesson, if too hungry, better not check in to restaurants which are crowded, one has to undergo Drooling and Salivating, our patience had almost run out by then... 
Waiting to be seated upon entering the Spice Kitchen.... 
Battery still running "OK" at this moment.... 
The crowd around us... all waiting to be served... 
Started off with an appetizer... Crispy fried Cauliflower ... 
Garlic Naan... 
 Mutton Curry...
Creamy Chicken Curry
Oh dear, I simplified all the names... 
Just couldn't recall what they were called... 
Anyway, this was our dinner for that evening... 
We were quite disappointed though... 
Waited for an hour and the two curries were just lukewarm... 
Well, perhaps we were too hungry that we over-expected... 
Maybe next time we will go again...
But not on a weekend, that is for sure!
As for the bill it came to around RM60 plus...
Not too bad but not too good either... 
LOL...

  1. I think the Creamy Chicken Curry would be their butter curry chicken. I love that!!! I love their cauliflower, very nice. In fact, I love Indian cuisine...anytime more than many of the rest. Waited an hour??? Aiyorrrrrr!!! How to do business like that? Come, come to Sibu - I take you to the one here, authentic North Indian chef, VERY VERY nice!!!

  2. I also dislike going to a restaurant when it is super crowded. The food looks good though not as how you expected. Maybe next visit will be better.

  4. If I am hungry and had to wait one hour for the food, I will be starving. Food looks good. I like to eat naan and mutton curry.

  5. The cauliflower does look very good! This place must have great food, because of so many customers. Maybe this time they just could not keep up with the crowd.

  6. The food looks good but too bad it is lukewarm, I also like my food to be very warm when served, I don't like lukewarm food

    If I am hungry, I won't want to wait

    I always go hungry when I visit your blog and Nancy's blog :P

  7. Oh dear. I feel you. I hate waiting for so long for food when I were damn hungry. Moody and restless. Haha.

    Such pity the food did not up to your standard. Maybe too hungry so expect the food is worth the long wsit and agony.

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

UPHILL....

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…
