DINNER @ UP & UP RESTAURANT, IPOH GARDEN, IPOH.

On Thursday we received good news that our friends were blessed with a new additional member to their family, a new born baby grandson. It was initially planned that we will visit the mother and child in hospital on a Friday afternoon. But on Friday, the time was changed to evening. Our friends suggested that after hospital visitation, we will all go for dinner.

After spending some time in the hospital, it was time for dinner. We were brought to Restoran Up & Up. According to our friends, the place will be packed during weekends and public holidays. We noticed that the place started to fill up while we were half way through our dinner. Even though this place has started business for some time, it was a first visit for hubby and I.
This is Fish Head Curry in a clay pot with ladies finger or okra, tomato, etc. This curry is not very spicy, suitable for those who cannot take too spicy food.

My friend purposely raised up the fish head just for my camera! Ha ha.

Stinking beans with dried shrimp sambal paste. This is also not the spicy type.

A plate of cuttlefish strip with julienned Chinese turnip (sengkuang).

Pieces of fresh glass lettuce to wrap the cuttlefish and turnip.

Prawn and onion omelette.

6 pieces of steamed fish balls, specially ordered for the grandchildren.

Unlimited helpings to white rich. With plentiful curry gravy, I went for an extra few spoonful of white rice.

Restoran Up & Up, Jalan Medan Ipoh 10, Taman Ipoh Timur, 31400 Ipoh.

Snapped this photo from my seat.

Another photo inside the restaurant...and the menu...

And when you look up to the sky and see the sun,

the moon and the stars - all the heavenly array -

do not be enticed into bowing down to them and

worshiping things the LORD your God

has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.

(Deuteronomy 4:19, New International Version-NIV)

  6. What a lovely day...a new born bay and such a feast! Seeing from the decor and dishes, the restaurant looks having Japanese twist. Not too spicy curry (and rice) is one of the most popular dishes in Japan but fish head curry is new to me.

    1. Hi Julia, I used to eat fish's eyes but now I no longer like eating them.

    2. Hi Nancy, I used to eat small fish eyes when I was a little girl, now I don't think I could eat them. We no longer cook fish heads but mostly filets. JB
