From Indulgence To Marianis, Ipoh

ITALIAN FOOD!

When it comes to western food in Ipoh, I really have to scratch my head on where to go for them.  Yes, I did go online under search Ipoh western food and I have three choices to decide after that.  The first choice is Indulgence, followed by Citrus and STG...

My friend and I settled for Indulgence, the most quality and pricey western food ever served in Ipoh. *That is my point of view*  And so... after dressing up meticulously for the dinner, we set off to Indulgence along Tambun Road on a drizzling Monday evening.  Lo and behold... the gate leading to the bungalow styled restaurant was closed.  Oh oh...Monday closed?  Leaving no choice and the next choice around that area is none other than Marianis, now located at Jalan Wan Mohamed Salleh, Greentown, near to Parkson.  Formerly Marianis was at De Garden and now shifted here to the new location with a more cozy feel... but Italian food??  hmmmm.... 
The night was still young.... quiet ambience... I told my friend...
I said it too soon... alas...
After 15 minutes, a group of ten or so with kids came in...
And the whole place was turned into a Christmas party ground... :)
Never mind that... 
As long as our food were served in a matter of minutes.....
To start off, I had an Avacado Salad.... 

followed by the main meal Chicken Spaghetti...
Nothing much to shout about actually...
I am still learning how to enjoy eating this.... 
My friend had a bowl of mushroom soup and grilled fish bass...
Just a small portion but enough to fill the tummy... 
And knowing me.... 
Desserts to make the dinner complete!
Recommended by the one who took our orders...
A bit of everything... she said.... 
Yes, without this, the dinner will be less satisfactory... 
That is for sure...
Dinner cost totaled RM167...
hhmmmm...
Let's go for Chinese food tomorrow!!
In my Christmas mood....

  1. Nice ambiance with good food. Usually when dine in Western outlet, I seldom order dessert. Unless the kids well behaved (finish their food).^^ Merry Christmas to you.

  6. I've eaten at this place twice...the food's ok, but nothing to rave about. Indulgence may be more expensive (slightly) but it's so much better. It's closed on Tuesdays too, if my memory serves me right.

  8. The lettuce looks grilled, very good. I can sum up Italian food in two words: pasta and tomato sauce. But I love it. Is is really good, but this particular place may not have the best recipes.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
