Hawker Food For Dinner @ Kafe Best Hillview, Ipoh

I was feeling lazy on this particular Sunday and I wasn't in the mood to cook. So we ended up having dinner with our friends at Kafe Best Hillview.

We were early, reaching at about 6pm and most of the stalls were getting ready for business.
Chinese rojak - small portion for 4 people to share.
We wanted to order different varieties to share.
Oyster omelette (or chien in Hokkien)
Bbq stingray fish (ikan panggang) with spicy sauce.
Prawn noodle (Hokkien mee).
For the purpose of sharing, we asked for an empty bowl.
Fried noodle Mamak style (mee goreng).
Sorry for the blur photo.
Evening sky at 7:12pm.
Once we finished our dinner, we left for home.
I sowed cauliflower seeds but this looks like Chinese kai lan from the look of the beautiful waxy leaves.

Few days later, we went to Gourmet Square at Ipoh Garden for dinner with our friends.
We ordered bbq stingray fish.
Our friend ordered 2 pieces of spring rolls (popiah).
1 piece fried and 1 piece non fried.
In fact, we ordered a few more varieties but I forgot to snap photos.
This was the Ipoh Cathay cinema in the old days.
The cinema ceased operation and is now turned into a business centre.
This photo was taken in the year 2015.
The bright and striking red colour on the building is very eye catching.


If I try to hide in the darkness,

the night becomes light around me.

For even darkness cannot hide from God;

to you the night shines as bright as day.

Darkness and light are both alike to you.

(Psalm 139:11-12, The Living Bible-TLB)

  13. Two dinners and both so tasty with a variety of food. I had to google to see the leaves of cauliflower to match your photo. Can't tell if those are cauliflower leaves or not. Are you going to harvest the leaves already?
