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!

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

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
