Dining IN At Morel Restaurant

TRYING OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME... and there might not be a second time for us... for a long while, I am sure!  LOL... 

Since I am now back in Ipoh, my friends suggested going to Morel for western fine dining.  I had not heard of this place before and I am all IN to try out wherever they suggest.  The pandemic is still looming everywhere, so to avoid crowds, we booked the reservation for four at six pm in the evening.  This is the time with the least people.... right?

Yes, we were the early birds.... menu came and there was not really a wide selection of choices to choose from.  I ended up taking fish... and now I have forgotten what type of fish, but I do remember the pricing very well.... LOL.... 

Formerly in SOHO area and now they shifted here to a bungalow at
Chung Thye Phin Road.... 
The ambience is beautiful...
I did not take many pictures though.... 
I couldn't remember the name of the soup already...
Just look at the pictures only... ya! 
I know this is salmon...
We ordered two sets of this fish.... 
A small piece no doubt but enough for me though....
For this dish, it cost RM150....yes!

And now... for the price.... 
The bill came to RM500 over...
Not surprising when we screened over the menu from the start... 
LOL....
Anyway... an eye opener for the four of us...
At least we came and we tried... 
And that was it... 
LOL...

  1. Well, it looks like it was still a different and beautiful experience. The building is lovely, and the inside very fancy and large.

  2. Oooooo...I love that old colonial style building, what a lovely place...with some really exquisite dishes to match...and the price!!! Shocking!!! LOL!!! If it is really so out of this world nice, I would reserve it for special occasions. I thought you would have had enough of western cuisine after 6 months in the US?

  4. Ya, for fine dining, the prices are like that. I am so curious on what type of fish you ordered. Maybe there is an online menu somewhere that I could consult.

  6. Haiyah, you just back from the West and off you went for Western food?? Lol.

    Fine dining, once a while or special occasion, ok lah. But I like the bungalow, cool. We have few houses around, Chinese owned, now mostly abandoned .

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
