Opeam Premier Wine & Dine Restrobar, Ipoh

I JUST CANNOT KEEP TRACK OF ALL THE NEW FOOD OUTLETS IN IPOH... To my recent knowledge, Ipoh has suddenly been on the fast track opening cafes, kopithiams, fine dinings and restrobar?  Wow, I never heard of this word before this, during my younger days, Ipoh is all about hawker food on the streets, coffeeshops with fans and for special occasions, coffeehouse was the trend that time.  Well, Ipoh has indeed "promoted" to a number of fine dining these days....

No such thing as "don't know where to eat" when my girl is around.  I just have to ask her and in a few clicks into her Instagram, she has most of the newly opened cafes and restrobars at her fingertips. Restrobar... hmmmm... I am update myself using that word!   And we went to one of the latest opened in town, for me, everything is just newly opened for I had never heard of it until just last weekend.  She recommended the restrobar called OPEAM, a bungalow just behind De Gardens at Ipoh Garden South.  She called up for reservation, just in case and we have to be there early for the place was fully booked by 8pm.  Wow.. business sounds good!

We reached here around 6.30pm... 
True enough, the place was almost fully occupied...
  
My girl ordered Aglio Olio with smoked salmon... RM22
Her friend ordered Smoked Duck....
Portion looks small for the plate is huge... RM22
I wanted this!  Saw it on the Facebook that it looks fabulous.. so I must try..
Unagi Bento... RM35
Very generous with the Unagi.. 
I couldn't even finish it all by myself...
For desserts, we have the Alaska Bomb... RM35
Saw this online too... so must try!
The staff will light up the rum and then poured it onto the ice cream covered with egg white..
Took a short clip on that...
Yes, she told us not to "burn" it for too long... and I quickly blew out the flames...
The outer layer is not sweet and now overflowing with rum....
The diffused "Bomb" filled with chocolate and vanilla ice cream.... 
And of course, the ending of the meal came with another "Bomb" from the wallet...
LOL....

  1. Places this fancy are usually quite expensive. But I am sure everyone wanted to try it out. Your video of the flaming dessert is just GORGEOUS!! And it looks mouth watering after you blew it out! This one dessert would be worth the price of the whole meal to me!

  3. This uncle here is also learning a new word from you - Restrobar!
    However I heard it's called Bombe Alaska and my mum was good at bombing this dish. I miss this dessert now.

    I agree that Ipoh has changed a lot and no more a sleepy relaxing town. The food everywhere is still good!

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
