Tasty Dishes At Sam Po Restaurant, Ipoh Garden East, Ipoh

COOLING NIGHT...   It has been raining for the last couple of days, cloudy days in the mornings and rains when it comes to evening.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con for the last couple of nights.  Good in a way but not so good when it comes to going out for dinner.   

My friends came to pick me up for dinner around 6.30pm and this time we went to Sam Po, Ipoh Garden East.  The last time I went there was many years ago, maybe around 8-10 years ago?  Not sure, anyway, when they suggested going there, I readily agreed.  Even though it was drizzling, I was surprised that most of the tables were either reserved or already filled with patrons like us.  

For the five of us, we ordered four dishes such as these.... 
Claypot curry fish head filled with vegetables as well... 
Very appetizing!
3 cups chicken... not sure why it is called by this name...
One thing I know is that this dish is filled with basil!
I love the smell and taste of Basil in my dish!
The basil enhances the flavour of this 3 cup chicken.... 
Another appetizing dish!
Yam basket filled with assorted vegetables... 
Beancurd ... I never thought this dish would be so yummy!
Credit goes to the toppings... 
The generous toppings of dried shrimps, onions, garlic and spring onions is the winner!
Overall, it was a very tasty dinner.... 
No one had any negative comment to say... 
Even though the cost of this 4 dishes came to RM90.50 plus rice and drinks... 
Not too bad... 
We might come again to taste other dishes some day!
(Provided no MCO.... so sad!)

  1. Hot or cold my aircon must be on plus a table fan by my side, cannot tahan panas! If I see a place with a lot of people, I would go elsewhere, social distancing #staysafe #staywell The tofu really looks so good, never seen any looking as good.

  2. All the dishes look good, price is ok too and I like the yam basket the best! 3 cups chicken is a Taiwan dish. It uses 3 different kind of marinates so that is why it is called 3 cups.

  4. The food basket is so cute. You must have so many restaurants there, I just cannot imagine. We have only a few.

  5. I also ate at that restaurant many moons ago!

    The basil leaves are in trend now as restaurants do add them with other vegetables. I love them too!

  7. It has been raining this weekend at night. Cold day today.

    I want the curry fish. And yam basket as well. Hehe. Had yam basket few weeks ago but the basket wasn't nice. We ended up finished the mixed veggies in the basket.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
