It was a random night at Ipoh when Jason suggested this restaurant with huge portion. Normally I don't fancy of these kind of restaurants knowing that the quality might be a bit off to compromise with quantity for reasonable price.
Yet whatever that can pass Jason's (the picky Ipohian) tongue test usually turned out to be not bad.

 
The hopping kangaroo with Aussie wording certainly helped those who may not understand the meaning of Oz as a slang for Australia.

 
A mix of Australia style between cowboy and tribal, decorated with koala bear and lots of roosters.
As the theme suggests, it's not hard to notice the cowboys (wearing the iconic hat) taking orders and even serving food.

 
Coke with Float (Chocolate) RM4.90 (Left)
Honey Dew Fruit Juice RM4.00 (Right)

 

 

 
Gold Coast Pork Schnitzel RM15
Garlic pork fillet pan fried served with ratatouille sauce on a bed of tomato rice
While ratatouille means stewed vegetable dish and schnitzel is a boneless meat that fried along with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, they've made a perfect combination of crisp and moist.
As a pork lover, I'm glad to see this on the menu because of its porky taste but I doubt its meat texture for such kind of fried steak as it might go very dry and ended up munching shoe leather. This schnitzel had no such problem, but it could be very risky in the wrong hand.

 

 
Outback Roast Chicken RM17.90
in Herbs Bread Sauce with German Potato Salad, Caesar Salad and Onion Rings as side dishes.
It was good: chicken was tender, caesar salad done right with fresh romaine lettuce and crunchy crouton, skin potato salad with onion, crispy yet not too oily onion rings and even a bed of potato with herbs beneath the roasted chicken to absorb the remaining essence. Perhaps a wee bit more seasoning to make this dish a memorable one?
Also, it would be better to have more side dish varieties for those who do not fond of potato.

A restaurant that I would see myself returning.

Tuck Kee Smile Oct 02, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

 
"Fifty years of fried noodle experiences, the third generation of Ipoh Tuck Kee is well known for its tender fried War Tan Hor Fun and the delicious of fried noodles with appetizers."

 
Located at Jalan Yau Tet Shin, this restaurant stands at the same row with the famous Lou Wong Bean Sprouts Chicken, attracting many tourists and Ipohians at night, especially during long holidays.

 
Baby Octopus in Soy Sauce 清甜八爪鱼
The octopus is blanched, then poured over with hot oil and soy sauce.
It then was garnished with spring onion and fried garlic, served alongside with special made chili sauce.
This succulent and fresh tasting octopus is a must order!

 
Meatballs Soup 猪肉丸
Though looks normal and unappealing, it has surprised me with its dense and chewy texture, not to mention the dry cuttlefish inside that elevates the porky taste.

 

 
War Tan Hor Fun 滑蛋河粉
Also known as Smooth Rice Noodles with Eggs.
Different with KL, Ipoh War Tan Hor has bigger ratio of egg gravy versus noodles, hence the soupy taste with fried noodles texture.

 
Ipoh Bean Sprouts 怡保芽菜
Another must have at Ipoh.

I am in love with the not so thoroughly cooked tamago, in which it is still in half liquid form, so soft and smooth that it literally melt in my mouth. Pair that up with the appetizing sauce of sweet and sour, along with crispy rice crust.

Dinner at House Smile Oct 01, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Western variety | Restaurant | Bar & Pub | Steaks / Chops | Burgers / Sandwiches

JoinMe (a food review website) offered a free taste voucher of House - Restaurant.Bar.Winepost @G Tower and coincidentally, it is only a mere walking distance of 5 minutes from my office and also from Ampang Park LRT station.

 

 
Comfortable interior of stylish wooden design.
As the taste voucher only valid during dinner, which at this office area, happens to be less crowded.
On another perspective, this can be a perfect place for romantic dinner or even chill out with friends.

 
Penne Pasta with Salmon RM29.90
"In smoked salmon cream sauce, vine ripped cherry tomatoes"
While cherry tomatoes giving out sour yet appetizing flavour, the cream sauce complimented it really well with its rich texture and salty taste. Penne pasta was cooked to perfection,with cream sauce bursting out on every bite,leaving me speechless in its wonder.All the ingredients were working very well except the smoked salmon fish which supposed to be under the main spotlight. I found it to be rather bland as a fish lover.

 
Squid Ink Linguini Aglio Olio RM31.90
"Assorted fresh seafood, scallop, prawn, mussel, chili, garlic & olive oil."
I was quite surprised to see the generous portion of seafood in a plate.
I found it to be average with the slightly hard texture of linguini.

 
(L) Virgin Apple Mojito RM13.90
"Fresh apples, lime chunks, mint leaves, brown sugar with a dash of soda"
Been loving the fresh taste and after breath from peppermint that I have ordered this virgin apple mojito from the exotic coolers series. It came in a tall glass and was exactly everything I was expecting. I would definitely come for this again. Two thumbs up!

(R) Mango & Lime Lassi RM14.90
"Mangoes, lime, lemon & yoghurt"
My first sip was mouthful with full load of mangoes. Yet at the same time, lime has lighten the texture, enable me to go for more.
