Easter Lunch @ Delicious Restaurant, Cowan Street

Last Sunday was Easter Sunday and after church service, about 40 people from the church went out to have easter lunch together at a new restaurant - Delicious Restaurant in Cowan Street. Just a simple lunch of 7 dishes plus a soup and dessert. If you ask my personal opinion, there's not much to shout about. Normal home cooked food. Once again , it is the fellowship that counts. My family enjoyed the fellowship and for me as long as someone else cooked the food and I am being served , I have nothing to complain. :p :P :)))

First the soup was served to us , the normal Chinese Herbal Chicken soup...natural sweetness with the pleasant fragrant of chinese herbs ..very home cooked :) , next came the Sizzling Hot Plate Tofu - simple and light. Followed by their special Wet Curry Chicken dish with lots of lady fingers - not bad, something different from the usual curry dish. The next one was Pork Ribs Braised in Coca Cola until the gravy thickens and coats the ribs pieces - too sweet for my taste, other then that it was quite okay with a after taste of coca cola.  ( leave it to the chinese, they can be creative and uses any ingredients when it comes to cooking a new dish :p ) The Otak Otak was just okay ...the one sold outside my housing estate was much much better...ouch I am not giving  them a bad review here but according to my tastebud it was not good :p  There was this vegetarian dish  - Braised Abalone Mushrooms - it was all canned mushrooms...what a waste ! It would have been nicer if it had been fresh mushrooms but just the same it was just okay. There was another vegetable dish - Stir Fried Kayle with Salted Fish which I forgot to take a picture for you to drool :)) Too busy chatting and eating at the same time. Not able to multi tasked this time :p

  1. Look at the whole table of delicious food! I love that tofu on sizzing plate the most!

  2. Never heard nor seen this restaurant. Near to Koh Samui there?

  3. Conviviality is a wonderful thing and to be able to experience it without having to do all the work is even better~

  4. Hi Elin, we are displaced Malaysians living in US. This summer we will be back in Canning Garden, Ipoh visiting family. Could you please tell me where the otak-otak stall near your house is? Thanks for the recommendation!

  5. Angie...haha yup that was a nice dish...simple and delicious :)

    James...yup it is opposite of Koh Samui...just opened a few months back :))

    tasteofbeirut...welcome...I can't agree more...well said :))

    Su...it is just opposite the shop houses in Ipoh Garden East. One of the stall in the centre. It is actually a laksa stall but selling home made otak otak. If I am not mistaken it they have it only on a Saturday. Let me know when you are coming back, maybe I can get them for you when u are back. Just email me :))
