Plan B @ Ipoh

4:19 PM Felicia Grace 0 Comments

Finally get to try Plan B in Ipoh.
Wanted to come here for a long long time but couldn't find the right people to go with.
Cause what I heard about, they are not cheap at all.

From an old warehouse, to something so spectacular
It's hard to resist to walk in and have a cup of tea to chill.

There were a lot of Yasmin's art hanging around the area.
Good read though.

Opposite of the cafe, there are a few arts and crafts stalls.
and what they are selling are pretty unique.
Will find a time to look further to blog about them another time :)

So they have an indoor and outdoor place for you to chill around.
Well it was cooling enough, don't think we need any cold air conditioning in our face.

Menu time!
Like they say, it's not exactly cheap but not entirely expensive also la.

I wish my stomach could fill in more than a slice of cake.

Chamomile - RM 10

Ice Apple Mint Tea - RM 10
Lychee Lime - RM 11

Lemon Meringue Cake - RM 13

An overview.

Wanted to try their Chocolate Cake but they say tarak :(
but their Lemon Meringue was not bad!
Better than the one I had at Espressamente Illy at Pavillion
That was far too sweet. Urgh.
Drinks was okay and the environment is nice.
Very green and all.
Giving the nature vibes with the sunlight shining through *not literally*
Total spending of RM 51.05, government tax and service charge included.

S.Wine Cafe @ Publika

1:01 PM Felicia Grace 0 Comments

So my cousin brought us out to Publika to have lunch and it was pretty late,
brothers were starving and all.
Didn't know where to bring them and when she mentioned S.Wine, I was like ohh yeaaa.

Hidden on the lower ground inside of Ben's grocery store,
it's pretty hard to find.
Even I didn't know it was there.
and no wonder I didn't see it anywhere while I was walking around.

With lots of seats, and dim lights,
this place is spectacular!
the lighting is so perfect for photographs!

With paintings hanging on the wall,
I really love the ambiance around.

Porky MENU time!

Honey Lemon - RM 9.00
They let you make your own honey lemon,
which is interesting and you can't complain if it doesn't taste good,
cause you made it on your own!

3 Layer Iced Tea - RM 10.00

Latte - RM 10.00
Well, it's not bad.
I would prefer a little bit sweet so I added some brown sugar to it and it is slurp.

Macchiato - RM 8.00
Brother ordered this and he didn't know what it was.
He was shocked when he saw it was in such a small cup hah.

Pigs In A Blanket - 19.00
5 crispy bacon-wrapped mini garlic sausages.
The bacon is of course, crispy and the sausages does bring out garlic flavor but it's not very heavy.
The sauce gives a little flame in your throat.

Parma Ham and Rock Melon Salad - 30.00
Ripe melon chunks and roughly-torn Parma ham tossed in balsamic vinegar, served on a bee of arugula.
The ham is an Italian ham, tasted a bit salty but a very different flavor, it was nice.
I like the melons though, so sweet!
Not forgetting the arugula, with the taste of salt and pepper, spot on seasoning, it is definitely a taste!

Momofuku-Inspired Pork Buns - RM 23.00
Chinese-style braised pork belly slices with pickled cucumber, sandwiched in steamed flower mantao.
The buns are amazingly soft, and the pork is seasoned so well.
Definitely something I would wanna eat more.

Bowl of Ribs - RM 25.00
Deep fried marinated lemongrass pandan ribs.
A little bit of pandan flavor, strong lemongrass flavor though.
Not spicy but there was a little bit of curry powder smell to it.

Deconstructed Roast Pork Sandwich - RM 28.00
Roast pork tossed with corn salsa, crackling, mesclun and ciabatta croutons in a lemon flavoured oil, topped with a sprinkle of dried Turkish chili pepper.
Literally deconstructed, the roast pork is definitely a thumbs up.
It definitely brings up the heat because of the chili pepper.

Ham and Cheese Sandwich - RM 28.00
Maple-baked ham and melting cheddar cheese sandwich in pain de mie, served with side salad, with an option to add Branston pickle spread.
The cheddar is Mmmmmmm!
Melts in your mouth.
A simple yet fulfilling dish.

Grilled Lemongrass Pork Chop - RM 29.00
Topped with a fried egg and doused with light soya sauce, served with steamed white rice and a bowl of salted vegetable duck soup.
Pork chop is not too dry, sunny side-up egg is perfect,
the salted vegetable duck soup is delicious!

Eggs Benedict - RM 25.00
Baked ham, poached egg and arugula on tasted English muffin with Hollandaise.
Egg yolk was creamy, the ham was a little bit salty,
the muffin was perfect.

Thai Grilled Pork Neck with Pomelo Mango Salad - RM 29.00
Grilled marinated pork neck with pomolo and mango salad tossed in a coconut dressing and a Nahm Jim Jaew dip served with steamed white rice.
The grilled pork neck was of course, hands down, best.
The salad has a mild mint, basilm ginger bud and slices of mango in it which gave it a sweet taste.
Weird combination but it works!

Pancakes with Maple Syrup and Crispy Bacon - RM 23.00
Two meringue-folded pancakes drizzled with maple-flavoured syrup, served with applewood smoked bacon.
The pancakes are so light and fluffy!
They absorbed the maple syrup as I pour it on them.
Making the pancakes taste sweet.
the bacon was a bit too cooked for me.

Overall? Food is good, ambiance is great!
Most of the food was really good so it's not so bad.
Price wise, yea a bit pricey but it matches the food level that they presented.
Btw, pictures are all shot by my mother with her dslr.
So therefore, the quality of the pictures are better than the usual ones.
Total spending of RM 365.40 including service charge and government tax.

Madame Waffle @ Midvalley

2:26 PM Felicia Grace 0 Comments

Since the hype of Magnum cafe, Midvalley is crowded with people.
and when I walk past this cafe to get to Magnum cafe,
I was like, errmahhgawddddd WAFFLES!!
They had a cafe just for waffles!!!!

Well of course the place is pretty small.
Seats are so limited.
Thanking God they was a table for two thats nice just for us when we arrived.

woman why are you staring at my camera lol.

A little bit of insight of the cafe.
Their waffles are Belgian-style waffles that used Japanese premium quality ingredients, which comes in different kinds of flavours.
Topped with Gelatomio ice cream.
Their Matcha poweder is also imported all the way from Kyoto, Japan.
Of course, their coffee beans are 100% Arabia.
That was why I was wondering, why do they have Japanese written all over?
and now I know.

Huehuehue. MENU time!!!

They had like 7 different kinds of flavor.
Original, Matcha, Chocolate, White Chocolate, Honey, Cinnamon and Coffee.
and there are 4 different plates to dine in that has gelato on it!
Not forgetting the amount of different beverage that they provide.

Hot Belgian Chocolate - RM 10.00
Hmm. For me, it was pretty diluted.
Maybe their coffee would taste better.
but I like the chocolate art though!

Chocolate waffle - RM 6.90
Packed for take-aways, this waffle is really something different!
It's like crunch on the outside and soft on the inside.

Banana Nutella - RM 16.00
Waffle with nutella and banana topped with whipped cream,
with the double chocolate gelato at the side, glazed with Belgian chocolate.
It is so chocolaty!!
The small slices of banana brings out the flavor together with the waffle.
The gelato is hands down, woah, and it melts in such a weird way but it is definitely good.

An overview.

Tengok woman ni, asyik take my camera and selfie haha

Overall? The waffle is great!
Better than the waffles in Kampar for sure.
I mean come on, they used ingredients from Japan, it does definitely performed out in their waffles.
Im a tam jiak person, one small piece is not enough haha.
It is definitely life's simple pleasure.
Total spending of RM 32.90, no service charge or government tax. *woohooo*
