Bee’s Home Café

Image
~ Closed for Business ~ Bee’s Home Café – a very nice name. But when you come to think of it, Bee’s Home isn’t it call Bee Hives? Well, don’t ever look down on this little bee’s hive that am going to share… it’s a place full of honey and lots of good food. Why would I say so?! I used to have sleeping disorder problem… and have been having this problem since schooling time. But after taking the honey that is locally extracted in Malacca, honestly, now I have quality sleep. Well, the person in charge will advise which type of honey to consume… different type of honey for different type of problems. For boosting your memory, Propolis Honey is the one that he recommended; Royal Honey is the one for easing your sleep. Apart from Honey, food there is reasonably cheap and tasty. I remember I read J2Kfm ’s post before that they have Sharon’s Laksa. That actually caught my attention. And that was my main reason to check out this place. It’s a quiet place for meal, small b

Foh San Restaurant 富山茶樓

Hubby has been wanted to try Foh San Dim Sum in Ipoh for a long long time, and the last time we went we saw a long queue of people lining up for seat. So, this time, guess what he told me, let’s be there at 6am. Goodness me, how can I get up then? With his enthusiastic character, he honestly waits no more but to drag me down from the bed. I wonder what kind of loving marriage is this be? Anyway, we were there at about 6.30am, plenty of tables available. People only starts to flood in at about 7am. So, to conclude the long queue query, I believe its fall on public holiday, Foh San can never be the place for breakfast; otherwise, you gotta be there as early as 5am. I have not been to the old Foh San before, so, can’t compare much, but this new building honestly it gives people a pleasant feeling. It’s a 2 storey place for dim sum, absolutely specious, still plenty of people lining up for tables & seats. And, they have a counter where you could place your order for other d

May Garden Palace Restaurant 梅苑餐廳

May Garden Palace has been in town for many ages, and many people in town knows what’s best is this restaurant. I think I could think of their Roasted Suckling Pig, Peking Duck, Sweet & Sour Crab, Grilled Pacific Cod Fish and even Shark Fin. Well, for this dinner in particular, we can’t have something like that, cuz, my in law requested to have something simple and easy for them to chew. What’s simple that is can’t go wrong would be steam fish. The fish that served is fresh and it steamed to perfection. Apart from steam fish, we ordered something that we both honestly yearning to have, some suckling pig, roasted ribs. Claypot Chicken which they have recommended, according to them is chicken dice sauté with fermented soya bean. Well, it’s tantalizing and it’s good to have it with steam rice. Some greens for the meal, we have something simple – garlic stir fry spinach. I supposed we didn’t order May Garden’s signature dishes, thus the dinner wasn’t that satisfying. However, if

Home Style Restaurant 家式飯店

Looks like every Saturday, hubby will find some time to drive around in the island to look for food. Some times, I can never understand him, why can’t he stay put at home? One of the weekend, we landed in this place called Home Style Restaurant, where CK Lam had introduced me before, and now here it is. Since this is our first time, we were recommended their signature dish - Braised Tong Bor Pork Ribs with mui-choy and nuts. It’s something different from the ordinary Tong Bor Meat, which you’ll have some tiny buns to go with it. Probably I find it too salty, didn’t quite like this dish. Apart from this, we had their Home Made Bean Curd with Sauté Brinjal & Dried Shrimp. Well, this is something I find it different from other places, as other places will normally come with minced meat. What gotta be taken note is that it’s also has chili padi sauté brinjal. Come next is Stir Fry Lettuce which is something that we should have in every meaty meal. A glass of Home Made Soya Bean t

Gelatissimo, Gurney Plaza

When I received the email from Gourmet Garden about the review for Gelatissimo, I immediately accept it without second thought. Cuz, that gives me the opportunity to know more about the making Gelato. In fact, do I fancy their ice cream? Well, of course… otherwise, I would not have been visited their first outlet in The Garden . When we first stepped into this place, we posted a lot of questions to the owner, we asked question what’s the differences between ice cream and gelato , what’s the difference between gelato and sorbet, and many more. He’s kind enough to explain each of our doubts and also showed us the process of making the gelato. Honestly how does this Gelato came about, there are many versions of it, what I have extracted from the Gelatissimo ’s site is something like this - In the thirteenth century Marco Polo discovered recipes for frozen milk desserts among the treasure he brought back from the court of the great Khan. A few centuries later in France, ices became re
