Thai Food At Lanna Thai Restaurant, Ipoh

BIRTHDAY FOR NOVEMBER BABIES...

A few of my ex-classmates arranged a dinner for two November "babies" cum "ladies"... this time the dinner was held at Lanna Thai, a newly opened Thai restaurant right in town, address is at Soho Ipoh 2, Jalan Sultan Idris Shah.  However a moment ago, I googled for this restaurant and discovered that there is one Lanna Thai opened in June 2006b at Ipoh Garden East.  Both having the same name, I wonder whether there are now two branches opened or it has shifted to town. 

Anyway, there were six of us for this evening's dinner and this place is the first time visit for us.  We were told that reservation is not encouraged, just be there on the first come first serve basis and that sounds good to me.  I used to pass by the restaurant whenever I go to town and it looks very impressive from the entrance.  "Must be fine dining"... I was thinking...
From the entrance... 
Taken from where we were seated... 
Everything looks new and nice... 
Pandan water for us... hot and cold... 
We ordered six dishes and they were out in no time... 
Very fast service.... 
Papaya salad to start off with.... 
Lemongrass Fried Chicken Wings...
I love lemongrass so this is a dish not to be left out... 
Phad Thai... 
Generous portion of squids...
Pineapple rice... big portion for us ladies...
Green curry with chicken meat.... 
No, it is not spicy...
I opted for a Seafood Clear Tomyam Soup... 
Very appetizing... 
I think I could finish the whole bowl... LOL....
Total cost for the 6 dishes... RM230 around that... 
And one of my friends made these desserts... 
Onde onde made from purple sweet potato and blueberries jam as filling... 
East meets West dessert! 
Ladies' night!
As usual, we must have one of this to remember!

  3. I have eaten at the older Lanna Restaurant which looked quite run down but food was very good. I hope they have shifted.

  4. Thai food is one of my favourites, other than Japanese food. Price is reasonable.

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 …
