O'Days @ Canning Garden, Ipoh

Seems pretty classic isn't it?
Let's take a look.

The place really reminds me of the good old days.
The home feeling.

     
It was pretty crowded in the afternoon on a busy weekday. 

They have a lot of kuihs also! 
Talk about reminiscing childhood memories. 


MENU.
So you have to order and pay first at the counter.


BubuChacha - RM 4.50
One of the best I would say. There's a lot of ingredients inside that makes it worth it.


Mixed (Cham) - RM 3.00
More on the bitter side but it gives a nice flavour to it.


Curry Chicken Rice - RM 9.80
Ohh the curry is so good! Its a little bit more spicy than I can handle but its good! 

An Overview.

So overall, not bad la this place for a light lunch or heavy if you want to order more food to eat on.
Drinks were not bad.
We got there a bit late in the afternoon so items on the menu were basically almost sold out.
So got to get there early I guess if you want to have the best from the menu.

STG Tea House Cafe @ Taman Chateau, Ipoh

So finally got the chance to come here and have a try of their food and see the fancy place.
Let take a look around, shall we?

So they actually have two STGs in Ipoh, we went to the one thats a huge bungalow. 


It was actually quite a number of people on a Sunday afternoon. 

Here's the more cozy place in the building.

     
Oh yea, STG stands for Sabah Tea Garden so basically you'll see lots of different tea around you on display.

Their cakes and biscuits looks really delicious by the way.


Alright, its MENU time.
Lots of variety to choose from.









     
Lychee and Rose - RM 17
So this is a mocktail, it taste sweet because of the lychee and the aroma smell of rose petals they put it in. I quite like this drink, very refreshing.

Chocolate - RM 12
Rich, premium chocolate as they say in the menu. So rich it is!

Mojito Kiss - RM 16
If you like strong mint flavour then this is the refreshing drink for you. It's a mocktail as well.

Wild Mushroom - RM 14
Fresh mushroom blended well with rich texture and with a piece of garlic toasted bread.

Tea Smoked Chicken Whole Leg - RM 25
A whole chicken leg with cherry tomatoes, cucumber and potatoes with tea infused sauce. 
Honestly, the sauce didn't quite do any justice. Hmm.

Chicken Meatballs - RM 24
Traditional Italian tomato pasta sauce with meatballs! 

Smoked Duck Breast - RM 32
Duck breast with citrus sauce with broccoli and cherry tomatoes. 
It looks like a small plate but the duck is fulfilling and it taste really really good.

An Overview.

So overall, its more like a half half thing.
Some taste good, some not so much.
Drinks were fine. 
Service was good though. 
They've also been very helpful with a proposal that we helped a friend to plan with. 
So yes, this place is great!

     
Being able to be apart of a wonderful marriage proposal gets me very much butterflies up in my stomach.
It's romantic and awkward at the same time haha.
Congrats to the amazing couple!!!

Romanee Hauz @ Kampar

So two months back, I had my birthday celebrated twice by different group of friends but celebrated at the same place at different times. *laughs*

   
It's like the best new spot in Kampar town. Since I've moved permanently to Ipoh, I've been spending less time in Kampar, obviously. No longer a teacher at Kampar anymore.

The place is new and was pretty crowded at first. And they said the food's great. Let's see shall we?

It's really spacious inside as it's 3-4 shoplots wide. So many seats can be seated.

Few games around to play as well.


I've not personally seen any band played here but it's quite cool to have a small little stage/area for bands to play around. Not a lot in Kampar.

     


I really like this wine display. It's so cool isn't it?

   
It's MENU time!!! Loads of pages in the menu. So many choices!

   

   

   

   

   

Berry-Berry - RM 12
Mocktails are pretty much refreshing so I'm not so sure what was in it but pretty sure the name proves it. It has very much a blueberry taste and some other berries in it.

Watermelon Juice - RM 8
Fresh and refreshing, it's fresh watermelon blended. Not bad.

Mushroom Chicken - RM 25
Crispy Chicken, Garlic Mash, Seasonal Vegetables and Mushroom Sauce.
Chicken was a bit too tough, probably over cooked it. Mushroom sauce was quite nice tough.

New Zealand Lamb Shoulder with Black Pepper Sauce - RM 32
Javanese Spice Marinated Lamb Shoulder served with Garlic Mash and Seasonal Vegetables.
The taste is much towards salty but it tasted quite alright. Just that the lamb they might have cooked too long as well. A bit chao da smell. The sides are splendid.

Fish and Chip - RM 20
Crispy Fish Fillet served with French Fries, Mescun Salad and Tartar Sauce.
The portion was a bit too small. Fish fillet was alright. Salad dressing was okay too.

Chipotle Chessy Chicken - RM 25
Chicken Marinated in Mexican Hot Sauce, Melted Cheese, Garlic Mash Potatoes, and Seasonal Vegetables.
With a little heat of the hot sauce, it gives a kick to the chicken. The garlic mash was delightful as well.

Man Tou with Chili Crab Sauce - RM 16 
This chili crab sauce is the bomb! I wish the man tous were refillable because the sauce is so amazing. The man tous are also very tender.

 Carbonara Spaghetti - RM 20
With garlic and bacon, along with Parmesan cheese, this is one really good carbonara. Quite on par with the one served at Euro House in Ipoh. Very tasty.

Edamame - RM 8 
I'm not a big fan of this, my friends however, dig in when they have the opportunity. I would say it was really good, and fresh, as my friend gobble up the whole thing at once.

Combo Pork - RM 58
Smoked Pork Belly, Bacon, BBQ Pork Rib, Deep Fried Pork Belly, Iberico Pork Sausage.
This is one wonderful plate of pork. It's like even though you are full but you still want to eat it. It's that good alright. Pretty worth it as well.

Overall, I couldn't recommend their chicken, but their pork is really good and so is their spaghetti. 
Drinks were fab but more on the pricier side.
Place is great, main area is much noisier so the other side is much cozier and less noise that can chat about among friends.
