Lunch Smile Dec 15, 2015

For lunch after running errands with my friend, we decided to grab something to eat nearby Nu Sentral since we were already there. Plus we wanted to re-visit Brickfields area since it's been a year or two since we had been around there after we were done with college. We saw Chilli Espresso which was very new to us so we decided to give it a try.

 
For me, I got the ulam fried rice with sambal chicken. I actually really liked this because thr rice was very fragrant and also a very substantial portion, not just for a normal eater like me but also a big eater. Then the chicken tasted super good especially with the sambal which was spicy but there's also a subtle sweetness to it which I liked a lot. 

 
My friend ordered the grilled chicken with black pepper sauce. Actually this was pretty good too because I tried some of it and wished I had ordered this instead. The only thing is that I'm not a super fan of chicken so that's why I opted for the rice instead. Though this made me change my mind for a second. 

Although I was a little apprehensive about this place upon entry, but I was pleasantly surprised. Which explained why there was quite a few people already eating there even though it wasn't quite lunch time yet. Will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu and perhaps have some of that chicken again.

Lunch Cry Dec 15, 2015

One day my mom decided to bring the family to this new place for lunch. She had heard reviews from a colleague that the food here was quite good. I was a little apprehensive because sometimes the food ends up being somewhat disappointing. This time however, I was on the fence a little bit. 

 
I can't remember exactly what salad this was. But I remember that I really did not like it because of the fried stuff which I believe was a mixture of shallots and something else. That just made the salad super greasy and gross which one would not ever think would happen when it comes to a salad. After one piece of lettuce, I just turned away and so did my mom.

 
To share we ordered the mushroom carbonara and.... It left little to be desired because the pasta was dry as anything without so much as a hint of cream sauce - at least it wouldn't be too cloying. However there was no flavour save for the tiniest bit of sprinkling of fake cheese on the top. Plus for the price that we paid, the portion was really quite small.

 
The saving grace of our meal was this grilled/roasted half a chicken. The sauce was sweet and also slightly salty which reminded me of teriyaki sauce a little bit, but maybe just a touch bit burnt. It was alright, nothing too much to should about especially the cold fries that came as a side. Though in comparison with the previous two horrible dishes, it was almost like a salvation dish.

It is safe to say that after our terrible experience, food and service wise, we would probably never return. Not only was the food we got sub-par but the wait-staff were just poorly trained and constantly looked like they were constipating or something. That just made everything so much more worst.

Marriage Brunch Smile Dec 15, 2015

A friend of my mom's recently got registered and as a treat, the happy couple decided to bring us to lunch. It was my first time at Noble House and I could sort of understand why they chose to have lunch there. 

 
This was the four season starter. There was deep fried shrimp with mayo and something else which I currently can't remember anymore. Although the decoration of it looked rather exciting, the food was merely mediocre at best. Which explains why I could not remember what the rest of the other four things were.

 
They also ordered one whole steamed chicken. Now this I remembered it being pretty good because the meat was succulent without being dry, plus it has super good flavour. Most people at the table said it had a 'chicken' taste which I really didn't understand. But everyone really enjoyed this dish and finished it all up. 

 
Then there's this super decadent and luxurious beancurd dish. Usually I wouldn't be too interested in anything beancurd related because it's just not my favourite. But this dish changed my mind and I believe it had everything to do with the thick & slightly heavy-bodied sauce. I could eat this with a bowl of rice and be very happy the end of the meal. Everyone loved this dish too and not a single drop of sauce was left behind. 

 
And then there's the fish dish. This was pretty amazing too because the Soon Hock was succulent, crunchy and very juicy which proves how fresh it was before being served to our table. However I think what made it even more amazing was the sweet soya sauce that had been steamed with the fish. I loved it a lot especially when poured over my portion of fish and eaten with a little bit of rice.

 
Finally, no proper chinese meal is considered complete until this dish arrives, braised mushroom with assorted seafood. There are abalone slices, fish maw, mushrooms and also dried oysters braised in a very decadent sauce which reminded me a lot of the sauce that came with the beancurd. I really liked this dish too and mopped up most of the sweet but also very heavily flavoured golden liquid of a sauce. Everyone at the table loved it too.

Will we return on a regular occasion, we probably will however I am not too sure when. Can't wait till we do.

Roadtrip Smile Dec 15, 2015

Before heading into Ipoh town, a favourite place that my family loves to stop by for an afternoon meal is Pun Chun. This is a restaurant which we have frequented quite a number of times over the years and whenever we get the chance, it's definitely a place that we will go to for lunch when we're on a roadtrip.

This afternoon, we stopped by there and immediately I was taken back to my childhood days where my mom would order food for me then try to feed me. Unsuccessfully might I add because I am always determined to feed myself. 

 
Without fail we have to order the double-boiled chicken leg soup. I remember this tasting stronger back then but today, it was somewhat lighter in essence. However it is still good because the flavour of the meat and vegetables has seeped into the liqud which gives it this beautiful aroma. This, I finished it all myself without any effort. 

 
Then I had the Dried Wantan Noodles with Char Siew. This is my absolute favourite because the noodles are springy with a bite to it, perfectly coated in the savoury but also sweet sauce. The taste hasn't changed very much which is a good thing and neither did the portions. The wantans are nicely filled with meat and tasted nice especially when eaten hot. 

I really enjoyed my first meal in Ipoh. I only wish I could eat this more often.

I remember when I was younger, we would take several trips out of KL just for a getaway. Our usual place to visit is Ipoh & Penang because these two places are well known for their food. And the one place that I will always remember very fondly is Kong Heng in Oldtown Ipoh. 

Whenever we eat there, the place will be filled to the brim with locals and people from other states. They are there to try the famous and very delicious noodles.

 
My favourite is the Ipoh Sah Hor Fun. This bowl comes with strips of chicken and prawns atop the noodles, plus some garlic chives for added flavours. Usually I never really like eating hor fun but somehow I can finish this entire bowl by myself. The taste is exactly the same as I remembered it to be and I'm happy to know that the quality plus standard never drops.

 
Then there's the pork noodles with lots of intestinal bits. This one is my mom's favourite and she always orders this but I usually only enjoy my own bowl of hor fun. But that day I tried a bit of this and found it to be really good too. The ingredients are plenty and the noodles are perfectly al-dente. Then the soup, it has SO much flavour that one spoonful left me quite surprised. 

 
Then the meal is never complete unless we have a plate of tau geh simply steamed then doused with soya sauce. This represents the simple pleasures in life because it's probably the cheapest thing ever and yet, the tastiest. 

Let's just say we never fail to pay a visit to this restaurant whenever we're in Ipoh or happen to be driving by.
