Trip to Ipoh, Perak: The story of Food Paradise in Malaysia Part 1

Salam and Annyeong to all of you!

First of all, apologies from the bottom of my heart for the hiatus for almost 5 months. There are lots of things happen in my life offline and I am battling with personal issues on should I continue blogging or should I abandon this site?

But I guess due to lack of motivation and discipline, I fail to continue blogging for 5 months. I am terribly sorry about that and I wish it won't happen again. I will try my best to blog regularly and I really need your support on that. Wish me luck...Hwaiting! (^-^)   

For today entry, would like to share with you my overdue trip to Ipoh during my birthday month, May. I went to Ipoh to celebrate my birthday and at the same time, family bonding. We choose Ipoh since our family are foodies and Ipoh is the best food paradise in northern area beside Penang.

We start our journey after Friday's Prayer and our first food destination is at Bukit Merah. There is a new Ramly's Cafe ( Ramly is a brand which is famous in Malaysia which related to poultry, beef and process food industry) which just open this year and we decided to give a try through this trip.

Situated at the Bukit Merah R & R entrance, beside KFC

As I entered the cafe, the warm and cozy environment greet you with the smell of delicious meat on grill.

The menu

The counter

The choices for meat and chicken ( For Chicken Chop and Steak)

Super friendly staffs but unfortunately super slow as well.

I have to wait about 1 hour just to get our order. *sigh* But patience is a virtue because I believe they are new and they still need to adjust themselves to cater hungry crowded people at that time. (The place is quite pack since it was a long weekend, Friday to Sunday break due to Labour Day and Wesak Day) 

Me and my little dongsaeng opt for Oblong Beef Burger

My mom's menu, Fish and Chips

My dad's choice, Black Pepper Chicken Chop

So, this is my rating looks like ( out of 5 ) :

1) Presentation

2) Service ( I would give 4 over 5 but unfortunately the slow service affect my judgement) 

3) Taste

4) Cleanliness

5) Work of Art ( Well, nothing much to impress on fast food restaurant's menu) 

6) Environment

If you are a fan of Ramly product range, you surely need to try at lease once to eat here

And beside the cafe, they also sell the Ramly product which you can buy there at the discounted rate

After having our lunch, off we go to Impiana Hotel Ipoh for our 3 days 2 night accommodation. 

Classic yet luxuries feeling. 

I have a great fond to this place because I always come here since I was 7 years old. My dad never fail staying at this hotel whenever he got meeting in Ipoh. Then, my family always tag along and we constantly have the short retreat here. I have witness the changes of this hotel from the management, the staffs to the name of the hotel, the menu and the interior for almost 23 years. And still, this hotel always remain very dear to my heart and my family as well.

At night, we decided to try the dinner buffet offer at the hotel. 

I forgot to take the picture of the food because we are extremely hungry and literally we have turn ourself to be a piranha :P

But what attracts me for the menu tonight is the desserts. Abundance choice of dessert ( well, I am sweet tooth... I can' help it...)

Isn't it lovely? (drooling...) (^-^)

Look at those scrumptious chocolate and strawberry...Yum..Yum..Yum!!

Blackcurrant jelly with Strawberry Slice 

At that night, since I do not have any specific activity, I decided to do some squishy photoshoot. Well, something about me. I am a squishy collector (^-^) And I have been collecting squishy since 2011. And I always bring my squishy on my trip...

My Hello Kitty Fruits Mascot Squishy Collection

Well, kinda fail since I can see the television reflection at the background and the colour of squishy doesn't show up....*sweatdrops*  Will work hard more to improvise my photography skill! Hwaiting! (^-^)

Want to know what I have for my food paradise trip for the day 2? And do you know there is Halal Dimsum in Ipoh?

Find out more in Part 2 and expect more over the top cuisine in my next blog!

Till next time, xoxo, Hanna
