Lunch With Ex-Colleagues At Hotel Excelsior Chinese Restaurant, Ipoh

Yesterday afternoon, a friend suggested Hotel Excelsior as our lunch venue because the Palace restaurant is promoting their set meals. There were 3 of us, we were working in the same department before we retired. 
 Entrance to the Excelsior Palace Restaurant (Chinese restaurant).
 We ordered 3 single set meals.
First set - Sweet sour chicken chop with rice.
 The rice was served on a plate with some salad and potato fries. 
 Sweet sour chicken chop with carrot, potato and onion served in a separate plate.
2nd set - Fried lemon grass chicken and rice set.
The chicken pieces were coated with fragrant sticky sauce.
3rd set - Baby French beans with minced meat and preserved radish (choy poh) and rice.
 The rice for 2nd and 3rd set came in a bowl.
we shared and tasted the 3 different sets. 2 of us managed to finished the rice while a friend only took half a bowl of rice. Since I ate the rice, I had a very light dinner. 
 Then we were served the desserts.
A chilled black herbal jelly
 Sweet drink - boiled sea coconut slices and lemon.
Each set costs RM 15.20 nett.

  3. Funny seeing some fries and coleslaw with white rice. The fries so little, better leave that out.

    Black jelly. I love that.
