*Home Made Confinement Dishes* at No. 2, O Cafe, Ipoh.

One day, my friends and I were so taken up with our chit chatting when it suddenly dawn on us that we have not taken our lunch yet. Looking at the clock, it was past 1.30 pm. We had no idea where to go or what to eat.

Then someone suggested that we go to a place where they serve "confinement" and home made dishes. Confinement dishes are dishes served to women after the deliverance of their babies to give warmth and nourishment to their bodies. The confinement period is usually 30 days from the day of birth of baby.
 Decorations on the wall near where we were seated.
The frame up consists of matchsticks boxes.
 Interior of No. 2, O Cafe.

If you are interested, the address is at:
No 2, Jalan Raja Kam, Taman Canning, Ipoh.
Tel: 014-3393796, 012-5841097.
Close on Fridays.
Black Vinegar Oink Oink Trotters with one hard boiled egg.
Chicken cooked in wine, wood fungus and lots of pounded ginger.
We finished off every drop of the wine and ginger soup.
Each dish comes with a plate of brown rice as a set.
A plate of dwarf milk cabbage or nai pak choy.
The 2 rice portion were big portion.
We asked for an empty plate and 3 of us shared the 2 portion of rice.
 2 glasses of pineapple juice. So refreshing on a hot, sweaty afternoon!
I can't recall the price of our lunch.

Haven't you yet learned that

your body is the home of the Holy Spirit God gave you,

and that He lives within you?

Your own body does not belong to you.

For God has bought you with a great price.

So use every part of your body

to give glory back to God because He owns it.

(1 Corinthians 6:19-20, TLB)

  3. Nice & tasty confinemet dishes. Confinement or not, we can cook it whenever we feel like having it. Over in Kuching, kacang ma is our main confinement dish whereas at your end, it is the black vinegar oink oink trotter. I hope I get it right, hahaha.

  13. I had never heard of confinement food for women who have given birth until I saw it on your blog. It might be what we call comfort food. It must have made the women feel good to be treated extra special after giving birth.

    1. Hi Julia, the confinement food is to give nourishment and health to the women after giving birth and also to be able to provide sufficient milk. The confinement food is also to take away wind from the women's bodies.

  19. The first time I heard of confinement was here in Malaysia after my neighbour had her baby. She is local and her husband is from Europe so there were some interesting 'conversations' about the do's and don'ts after birth. :-)

  20. Confinement food i have heard of, thinking it's what we would call an old fashioned idea. No offense meant :) looks very nice food..

    1. Hi Margaret, don't worry because I am not offended. Yes, in today's society and to most modern people, many considered this confinement thing to be old fashioned. Yes, there are many things we have done without but these dishes remained a favourite for both in confinement and for normal people.

  28. In Russian culture we also have confinement dishes and then some restrictions with food while breast feeding. It's very good that you have places which serve home made confinement food, makes it so convenient for many women.
