Fine Presentation At Dim Sum Yuen, Ipoh Garden, Ipoh

FIRST TIME coming by to Dim Sum Yuen, formerly known as Kao Lee in Ipoh Garden.  It took a Kuala Lumpur lass to inform me that Ipoh has this fine dining Dim Sum in Ipoh Garden, I am indeed not up to date with the latest here in Ipoh... friends call me Food Blogger and yet I am way behind the name.  LOL...

Anyway, thanks to my outstation friend, we came to taste the goodness and the admire the presentation at Dim Sum Yuen.  The place has a nice ambiance, neat and clean to our eyes and not noisy at all unlike the other restaurants selling dim sum.  Menus were given to us upon seating and we just have to mark whatever we wanted on a piece of paper.  I prefer it this way, we can order without having to say "No" to those normal dim sum carriers in the restaurant.  We did not have high expectation on the food, perhaps due to the non-crowding in the restaurant.  Well, we were wrong in thinking such.  The food we ordered were up to our expectation or should I say beyond... Four of us agree heartily that we must come back again soon!
First impression on the tea set... Passed!!
And now the food....
Steamed pork ribs...
My girl will love this, I am sure!
Radish with its condiments...
Sticky rice with chicken and sausages... soft and tasty... 
Chee Cheong Fun...
Clear porridge for me... 
Tomyam Fish Cake... 
I like these Swans....
They are actually Yam with meat fillings... 
Very nicely done and tasty too... 
Desserts.... Peanut balls with black sesame fillings...
And "three birds in a cage"

One flew out for modeling effect... 
Oh yes, to our nice surprise, we met our ex-colleague here... 
She retired more than 20 years ago....
Good to see her again and we called her to come over and have a chat with us...
Many thanks to her, she picked up our tab as she left the place earlier...
Really appreciate that, KT!1
That gives me another reason to love this place!
LOL...

  4. What is that? A chip in the bowl of steamed pork ribs...and the chee cheong fun too? They should not use it anymore - it may harbour bacteria. I would ask them to take it back and give me a new bowl, one that is not chipped.

  5. I recently read about this dim sum place too and have been yearning to give it a try. Now that you have blogged favourably about it, will definitely be heading there soon.

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 …
