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!

  9. I've heard about this place (it's so near my mum's house). It's the baby of the same lady who owns Patisserie in Old Town.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
