Dinner With Friends At Restoran Ipoh, Ipoh.

I have not been posting and blog hopping to visit my blogger friends regularly because I am away on a holiday. A I have been so used to my computer that I find it very inconvenient having to use my friend's laptop. Once I am back from my holiday, I will resume my regular posting and visiting of blogs. I am now using my friend's laptop to post this dinner which we have taken in Ipoh. Meanwhile, I will have to sort out my holiday's photos.

This dinner was taken with friends who was in Ipoh for a visit. We chose Restoran Ipoh because our friends have not been here before. It happened to be raining heavily that evening but we managed to get to the restoran. We were cold and hungry, and we ordered the following dishes for our dinner for 4 people.
A bowl of piping hot soup (fish balls, eggs, and wolfberry leaves aka kau kee choy) to keep us warm.
Fish cooked in assam curry - Nyonya style - very appetizing.
Bitter gourd slices and egg omelette
Stir fried Romaine lettuce with garlic
These do not seem enough, so we decided to order another dish.
We were glad we ordered this - thinly sliced pork belly steamed with salted fish and ginger strips. This dish alone will cause you to want additional helping of rice.

Looking forward to more fig fruits from my garden.

we are looking forward to our everlasting home in heaven.

  4. Assam curry is very appetizing and tasty to go with rice. Long time I didn't have that. Hubby is not keen and my kids not taking it so I don't get to eat it.

    Lovely Japanese rose. All my Japanese roses die off. No time taking care of my garden, some plants due on me. But with the school holiday, I have free time to tend to my garden lately.

    1. One thing about Japanese roses is that they need to be replanted often.
