From Dark To Bright On A Lunch Date

MEETING UP....  once a week, we catch up with one another and last week we went to Communal Kitchen.  I never heard of this place until my friends suggested it and I am all for any place which is new in Ipoh.  There are so many new cafes in Ipoh that I really cannot catch up with them.  I did not know what to expect, I just went along and see what they had in store.... 

Everything is dark inside the cafe... 
Maybe with the black walls and all... 
Chicken wings platter for us to share... 
My friend ordered Smoked Duck Spaghetti Aglio Olio... 
Notice the plate is also dark in colour?
This is mine... for RM15... 
Nothing to shout about actually....
I don't know why I ordered this... 
And now I know why I don't like dark coloured plates... 
LOL...
After our lunch, we adjourned to a brighter kind of cafe to have our desserts....
I felt so much better here at the Etre... 
LOL...

  1. I don't like eating at dark places too....I'm skeptical of dark plates coz it might not be cleaned well and the dirt can go unnoticed.

  2. Looks very upscale and fancy. Here, restaurants are closing down because of Covid. Recommended to only eat take-out or outside, so lots of jobs lost.

  3. LOL. Dark and black is always evil to some people. I think big and white plates are the best for serving food.

    I love to drive around Ipoh because there's always parking space compared to KL.

  4. I also don't like walls painted black or with black wall papers. You order mushrooms olio aglio?

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
