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.

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?
Our fir…

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…
