French Desserts OK Dec 27, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : French | Restaurant

After dinner, us girls were hungry for something sweet to sink our teeth into while we enjoy a nice glass of wine. Well at least they all did while I was just looking for something to nibble on because I was still feeling peckish even after dinner. Since we were around there and it was a place we wnated to try out, we dropped by Rendez-vous. 

The place was relatively packed which is understandable considering that it was a holiday night. However the service was pretty good which I really commend them for despite the big crowd. 

 
Vanilla Creme Brulee was the first choice we went for and everything we ordered was to share. Whether this is a substancial portion considering the price that we paid for it however is really up for debate - personally I did not think so. Especially since the taste was only so-so and there was no brulee on the top which this dessert is famous for. Disappointing to say the least.

 
Then because this is my favourite, I got the platter of two selected cheeses. I don't know why but I was somewhat disappointed when this arrived because it was merely two measly slices of cheese, one camembert and then some blue cheese. There was a few nuts and preserved fruit scattered about, hardly enough even for a person and served with some fruit chutney plus a small salad. It was fine but really nothing to shout about.

 
Then as a recommendation, we got this apple dessert with a scoop of ice cream and some crispy thing. Honestly this was the only thing of the night that we really liked and I think it had everything to do with the ice cream and the brittle. 

Will we be back for the desserts however is less likely. Perhaps maybe we'd give this place another try for their savoury menu. Though I do like the ambience there and the fact that it's a french dining restaurant that isn't too cut-throat with prices.

Based on a recommendation by my mom's friend, we made our way to Cheras to try dishes from Eight Treasures restaurant. Considering how hot today was, I really did not want to leave the house so you could imagine how sour my mood was by the time we arrived.

I had no intention nor desire to eat as I sulked and wished to be anywhere but outdoors. However I left feeling a hundred times better becasue the food served was very good.

 
We got fish paste stuffed chillis and it's weird, because the ones we usually get at Yong Tao Fu places uses red chillis. Yet here they served us green and I really really liked them - I don't know how to explain the difference in taste but there just is. Plus it was deep fried and served piping hot, which is just the way I liked these. 

 
This however was not my favourite because it was stir-fried petai with minced pork & bean sprouts. There was just too much of the former for me to enjoy anything about it because every piece of meat stank of the petai which I really could not stomach.

 
And because I wanted some green veggies to compensate the stinky dish, we got ourselve a nice plate of stir-fried HK kailan with garlic. This I liked and probably finished the entire dish myself since the other were more into the petai dish. No complaints coming from me that's for sure.

 
Then came the dish that I really really liked that day was the deep fried fish, one for each of us. I am not a hundred percent sure what kind of fish it was, but it tasted really good because it was well seasond before being deep fried to crisp golden perfect. Almost all the bones could be eaten and the head too because that's how crispy it was. 

Even though I went there expecting the worst because of my sour mood, I do like the food served at Eight Treasures. Would probably return whenever we get the chance to.

Dinner again.  Smile Dec 26, 2015

Since we are back in Ipoh, no doubt we will go get food at one of our favourite restaurant and despite it being a holiday, we are glad that it wasn't too filled with people. So we got a table instantly and got right down to ordering because we were super hungry after a long day out - not counting to plenty of treats we had in between.

 
No doubt we would order the stir-fried char siew. OMG, this dish is the epitome of indulgence because the meat had perfect layers of fat & meat which is coated in the sweet sticky sauce that has caramelised onto the meat. We ordered two plates of this because one wasn't enough.

 
Then, because everyone love's this, we ordered baby french bean stir-fried with garlic. Simple but also very delicious which everybody loved and finished up with ease. 

 
This was a new dish we tried that night. It is braised pork ribs with tendons and... As crazy as it sounds, this tasted heavenly because there's just so much flavour in each bite. There's a hint of sweetness from the different seasoning in the sauce but yet, not too much because there's also a savoury porky flavour. This was our first time trying this dish out of recommendation but we probably will be back just to have another plate of this.

Tao Fu Faa Smile Dec 22, 2015

I've never been a fan of desserts and honestly, I'd rather have fries than have something sweet after a meal. It's just never my thing even though my family enjoys having dessert at the end.

Yet when we were in Ipoh, I pestered them to get some Tao Fu Faa after brunch and made sure we went to one in town that I've been told is pretty good. A friend of mine is a local so he knows the best places to get good food and recommended Woong Kee - so it wasn't surprising to see people queueing up for their bowl of soybean curd.

 
I LOVED IT! The bowl was small but felt so traditional and in it was super soft Tao Fu Faa with some simple syrup. Every spoonful of this was so comforting and made me happier each time - so much so that we all got an extra bowl just to indulge in.

Must try this whenever you're in Ipoh town. Just got slightly earlier to avoid the crowd and also be prepared to eat this standing up since they do not provide tables for you. It's kind of like an eat & go system.

To be honest, no trip to Penang is truly complete unless we splurge on a dinner at Bali Hai. Although most of the locals would say tht it is overrated and also somewhat overpriced, it just feels rather incomplete if we do not dine here.

 
So what's a seafood dinner without crabs. Not just any kind of crab but Chilli Crab with it's sweet and spicy sauce which is perfect when dipped with fried mantao, which was pretty good when it arrived at our table. Everybody loved this dish especially since the crab is very fresh and the sauce was super good, nothing was left behind at the end of the night. 

 
Then we got the Steamed Tiger prawns. THIS WAS SO SO SOOOO GOOD! The prawns were super fresh cause minutes before they were still happily swimming in the tank, so the meat is super succulent & juicy. Plus it had a hint of chinese wine kind of taste to it so that just amplifies the sweetness of the prawns even more. I had so much of this. 

 
Because we just can't seem to get enough of seafood, we also ordered steamed tilapia in sweet soya sauce. Since the fish was super fresh there was no need to cover up it's nice sweetness with any kind of other sauce and that was a good decision that night - we all loved this dish so much. By the end of our meal all that was left on the plate was the bones of the fish. 

 
Since we need some vegetables to counteract our guilt for eating so much seafood, we also ordered a plate of the four heavenly kings stir-fried in belacan. I don't know why but they gave so much petai on this plate that it felt almost like a petai dish which I kind of turned away from. Though the petai-lovers at the table enjoyed this like crazy.
