Dinner At Mokuren And Desserts At Kinta City, Ipoh

BACK IN IPOH... Really nice to be home after a couple of weeks away.... This time I must be a good girl and stay put here till something bugs me again!  LOL...

Back to homecooking too on most evenings... but on this particular evening, we felt like eating something different and special for a change.  It has been raining on most evening and on this particular rainy day, I was craving for some Japanese food and Mokuren came to my mind... Quickly I made the reservation through the phone for two and we reached there before 6pm.  Yes, have to make reservations otherwise might feel dejected if it is full.  Saw a few customers who walked in after us were told that the tables were reserved... hmmm.. Food must be pretty good here...
Hot green tea on a rainy evening.... 
Then I sat back and let my girl do all the ordering... 
Since we were the first customers, our food came out real fast.... 
Our Big Bowl of Seafood salad... 
Anyone squeamish looking at this dish?
Don't be... it is a well blend combination with all the sauce and vegetables... 
Very nice one.. 
Me also first time taking this.... and it cost around RM25
Cucumber rolls with Salmon and something good in there... RM20 or so..
I could finish this plate all by myself! 
My girl also ordered some soft crab sushi rolls... 
Not bad too... price is around RM20 plus.. cannot remember already..
Thought of ordering another bowl of fried rice.... quite hesitant... 
In the end, we did not... cos I have something else in mind!
We went for our desserts at Baskin Robbins... 
Glad we did cos they have promotion... 
Buy one at regular price 
and the second one is RM3.10 only... 
Independence Day Promotion so it seems...
And finally the evening meal is fully completed!

  9. The cucumber and salmon rolls look the best to me, a very lovely place to eat. We have quite a few Baskin Robbins in the area.

  10. Presentation looks kinda messy - usually at these Japanese places, their presentation is top class, so artistic and creative. I love Baskin' Robbins!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
