Lunch At Something Special Cafe, Ipoh New Town

On Wednesday, my friends and I met up for lunch. My friend suggested that we go to a new place in Ipoh new town. She has been there once and according to her, the food is good and price is reasonable.

After driving a second round, we were blessed with a parking space right in front of the cafe. We felt special, given a special parking space, eating in Something Special Cafe.

We ordered 3 main set, each set comes together with noodle or rice and also with an apple pie and a blended sweet potato drink.
Set 1 - minced meat wrapped around lemon grass stalk (white part) with dipping sauce (Thai style). We all like this set.

Set 2 - 2 pieces of minced chicken meat.

Lemon sauce to go with minced meat.

Set 3 - Pork rib curry.

We can choose to have rice or noodle. This is not the usual yellow noodle sold in the market. This is their specially made noodle. All 3 of us chose noodle. I like the texture of the noodle. It was a big portion.

This is Apple Pie, included in the set. I like this apple pie.

A cup of hot blended sweet potato drink (you can ask for iced). I like this drink.

Side dish #1 - Garlic bun.

Side dish #2 - white bread with chicken & potato curry.
Total cost MYR 29.70

Giving thanks to my friend who treated us to a nice and very filling meal. We over ordered. We didn't know that the noodle were such big portions. I would like to say that the place has a nice, relaxing ambiance.
