I wanted to try this small bottle of wine since my first visit a few months ago.
So both of us ordered White Wine-Hardys Nottage Hills for RM22.
If I remembered correctly, one small bottle was just enough for 2 full wine glasses which were perfect for us.
We don't have to figure out what to do with the wine in case we couldn't finish it.

 
Soup of the day -Pumpkin soup for RM10.
Very big portion for me. It was almost 2 palm size of mine.

 
Wild Mushroom Soup for RM18.

 
Red Wine Chicken for RM40.

 
Fusili Carbonara for RM30.
I love love love carbonara!
I would definitely try carbonara if it is on the restaurant menu.
This was too salty and the sauce was too thick for me, I didn't finish it.

I left a good impression on this place for its superb service and hospitality, with relax ambience,
especially suitable for couple <3
However, the food quality is not as good as expected given the price they charge.
Maybe only a piece of cake and wine for the next visit.

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.

Yum Cha @Purple Cane OK Oct 02, 2013

Categories : Chinese | Café

 
Purple Cane located at Osborne Street, Ipoh (also known as Jalan Dato Tahwil Azar), where the previous Foh San Dim Sum was.

 
If you have not come across Purple Cane before, it is a tea house established in the year 1987, with wide range of teas, brewing utensils as well as tea related products such as books and snacks.
Its first tea restaurant was opened in year 1997, which later made well-known with its tea infused dishes.

 
Dining area that has close to nature concept of trees and bricks, with red chairs as surprising element.
Seats under the direct sunlight are always the last in Malaysian's list of dining preferences I must say (due to the hot and stuffy weather), but these were none of those.

 

 

 
Herbal Tea Eggs

 
Sweet Potato Balls with Green Tea Dipping Sauce
Slightly oily and the green tea dipping sauce was slightly sweet to my preference.

 
2 private rooms are available with minimum spending of RM150 each.

Tuck Kee Smile Oct 02, 2013

"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.
