Lunch At The Museum, Ipoh.

I first heard about the "melt-in-the-mouth" char siew or bbq pork served in The Museum from a friend. Finally, we got to satisfy my curiosity when we visited and tasted the bbq pork on our foodie outing. I not only got to taste it once but twice because a few days later, I went back again with church friends and hubby.

1st visit with ex-colleagues and friends
Entrance to The Museum.
I was seated facing this corner.
Even though it was a Tuesday. the place was filled with lunch crowd. While waiting for our orders to be served, I spent time taking photos of the wall decoration facing me.
We waited for approximately 25 to 30 minutes before the food was served.
The first to be served - Steamed Lala clams with basil leaves @ RM 30.
Green bitter gourd and tofu cooked with salted black beans @ RM 18.
Now I can also cook my home grown white bitter melon with tofu too.
Kwai Fah Mee @ RM 15.
BBQ Pork or Melt in the mouth @ RM 18.80
Roasted pork fried rice @ RM 13.80
Hokkien dai lok mee (thick noodle) @ RM 13.
The texture of the noodle was too hard for our liking.
Drinks: 2 fruit juice & 2 honey lemon - RM 23.60
Total cost of lunch for 4 people = RM 140.15 (incl. 6% SST)
As we walked out the resturant, we passed by this tray of live cockles.
A knight's armour on the left side of the door.
And this weighing machine on the right side of the door.

2nd visit with church friends.
While chit chatting with friends after church, our friends wanted to try the bbq pork at The Museum. We continued to chat till about 11.45am as their business only opens from 12 noon.
 The Sunday lunch crowd, taken from where I was seated.
Some of the dishes written in Chinese above the counter.
 Does anyone has any idea what these triangular bag-like things are used for?
 Close up view of some of the dishes from their menu.
The Sunday lunch crowd was bigger and the waiting time was longer.
 The 4 of us ordered hot Chinese tea - RM 13.80 (free flowing).
 While waiting, we were each served a bowl of very tasty soup.
The pickled green chili is a must to eat with wonton noodles.
 Hubby's bbq pork noodle @ RM 20.67
Friend's roasted pork noodle @ RM 20.67
 Friend's and my mixed bbq pork and roasted pork noodle
@ 25.97 x 2 = RM 51.94
Total lunch for 4 people - RM 106 (incl. 6% SST)
 Our friends are waiting to bring their grandson to taste this juicy bbq pork soon.
 If you don't mind, you can choose to sit outside if no table is available inside.

Don't you realize that you can choose your own master?

You can choose sin (with death) or else obedience (with acquittal).

The one to whom you offer yourself - he will take you

and be your master, and you will be his slave.

  15. Ya esa puerta cerrada es una tentación para entrar en el Museo y ver todo lo que hay expuesto. Después de hacer el recorrido por sus salas se hace la hora de degustar sus ricis menús.

    Besos
