Good Choice At CJ Hot Pot, Ipoh Garden, Ipoh

OUR LAST EVENING IN IPOH..... I gave several suggestions for the youngsters to decide the dining venue, somewhere they have not been before and the food must be nice as well.  Japanese, Korean, Thai food were among the choices I gave but they could not make up their mind.  Everything sounds good, salivating so they said.  Since they could not make up their mind, I made the decision to take them to CJ Hot Pot.  They have not been to this place and they did not know what to expect until we sat down and ordered the food.

CJ Hot Pot is in Ipoh Garden, Medan Ipoh 7, it is something like steamboat, but it is actually a hot pot soup filled with varieties such as vegetables, tomatoes, fish meat or fish head, yam.  The soup was aromatic with a yellowish tinge, a bit sour and slightly spicy that makes the whole meal appetizing to our taste buds.  When the hot pot was served, my kids were fascinated and they went to pick and added in more ingredients to the hot soup.  Besides that, we ordered some side dishes to go with our scrumptious dinner!
This is the place we had our Hot Pot... 
The Hot Pot that arrived on our table.... filled with goodies...
Immediately, the guys went to pick and choose what they wanted to add inside the Hot Pot...
Noodles, fish balls, greens... optional picks... 
While waiting for the ingredients to get cooked, we did this.... 
Eventually it was full to the brim!
Side dishes such as Salted Egg Mini French Beans...
This is a good choice... Crispy Beancurd skin.... 
A Must-Order dish!
Minced pork meat mixed with salted fish... 
Ahhh... another tasty dish... 
Curry Prawns In Bread...
Wonderfully cooked and appetizing!
During the dinner, everything served received positive remarks...
I am so happy that they love the food here.... 
For sure they will want to come back again...
As for the bill, it came to around RM140 or so...
Not too bad for the five of us.


  1. That's a BIG pot! It is gorgeous, I love this idea! We do not have any restaurants like this that I know of. It would be so good and warming on a cold day, and you can put what you want in it. The bread dish looks very good too. The kids all look so happy!!

    1. Yes, where there is food, everyone is happy! :)

  2. We'll have steamboat on Chap Goh Meh, no time to cook. My mum's still in the medical centre and I also have to take care of my old father at their house - he's on his own. Sighhhhh!!!!!

    1. Treasure them while they are around.. I am now parentless and I miss my mother very much!

  3. oh wow! all the dishes, as well as the hotpot, look so tempting. must go and try one of these days.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
