Lunch At Yes Restaurant & A Visit To Antong Coffee Mill, Taiping

While we were still in Penang, our friend was telling us about the Yes Restaurant in Taiping and suggested that we go there for lunch.

With the help of Waze, we reached Yes Restaurant just after 2 pm.

There was no lunch crowd at that time. We ordered only 3 dishes because we were not very hungry.4 glasses of Chinese tea.Fried tofu with minced pork.Water spinach (kangkong) with sambal belacan.We came specially for this dish. Yam and fish in a clay pot.There were chunky pieces of fish inside the yam gravy.

~~~~~

After lunch, we made a short visit to the Antong Coffee Mill.This is the 3rd time I have been here.

This is the house when Dr Sun Yat Sen stayed when he was in Taiping.

On the other side of the fence.

Traditional way of roasting the coffee beans.
Coffee tree - Robusta variety.
Coffee tree - Arabica variety.
Coffee tree - Liberica variety.
Wall mural.
Antong Cafe
Free tasting of the different types of coffee for visitors.
Water plants in the compound.
I am interested in the water plants with the tiny leaves. I have not seen this before.
After our visit to Antong Coffee Mill, we were taken to Plaza Perbandaran.
Our friends wanted to buy Taiping buns.
After this, we drove back to Ipoh.
These were the buns we bought at Plaza Perbandaran.
I bought 6 sweet potato plain buns and 5 coconut buns. I gave some to my neighbours and kept these for ourselves.
I bought the above from Antong Cafe. Instant Golden Roast Antong Coffee, dried bread and coconut biscuits.
The above items were from Penang. Penang Assam Laksa paste, Penang Prawn Mee Paste, Sambal Dried Prawns or Sambal Hae Bee and dried ginger. These will be enough until our next visit to Penang.


God is able to make it up to you by giving you everything you need
and more so that there will not only be enough for your own needs
 but plenty left over to give joyfully to others.
(2 Corinthians 9:8, The Living Bible-TLB)

  4. Yes the water plant with small diamond leaves is so cute.

    I have spent countless days in Taiping since both my grandparents lived there. Without internet, without foodie tourism, I didn't know any food except the kuih and CKT in Larut market. Also heard of the goreng pisang. And that's it.

  8. Good to see you bought cooking paste and snacks from both Penang and taiping. A fruitful trip. The water plant with tiny leaves looks so special since the tiny leaves are arranged in a geometrical pattern. Is there a market inside plaza perbandaran?

    1. I am keeping my eyes open for the tiny leaves water plants. There is not much going on in the Plaza Perbandaran now. My friend wanted to buy the buns from there. It was past lunch hours so I don't know if there are many stalls in the morning.
