If you had came to this blog previously searching for a good hipster café in Ipoh, you might have came across my post about Mat Periuk Café in Kampung Tersusun Tasek. And this time, I want to write about it’s branch in Tambun Ipoh.
After Thumbs Café, Al-Negra, Mat Periuk, another new (well not really new since I’m quite late in writing this, but yeah~) art café in Ipoh town has arrived, Gomok Café. I’m not really sure why they choose the name, but most probably it is relatable to the word “Gemuk” which means fat. I really happy to see many cafes of this type started to came into pictures because as I said it before, I really love to see Ipoh as a small town that focusing on arts tourism.
The area of Tambun in Ipoh has been known for it’s famous landmarks, the Lost World of Tambun by the local and outsiders. But there are also many nice foodspots you can find here. Recently, I was told by one of my colleague that there are new interesting restaurant in the area of Sunway City, Tambun. As she described the restaurant to be very unique and beautiful, I became a little bit curious to go there.
If you have been or lived in Ipoh recently, you may noticed that there are several new art café being opened here. What is art café? I don’t think there are any specific definition for it but I might just consider it as a hipster and cool place to hang out with friends. The restaurant/café will focusing on arts in their interior design beside serving great foods. I believe this will be a good moves to make and to promote Ipoh town as a place for arts & culture tourism.
Taiping, another interesting town for you to visit in Perak after Ipoh. Formally known for their coal mining activity, Taiping is now becoming a famous tourist spot in Perak. Among the places that are interesting in this town are, Taiping Zoo, Maxwell Hill, Taiping Prison, Taiping Lake Garden and many more. And for food hunters, Taiping was also a food heaven. Before this, I had reviewed one famous Cendol in Taiping, you may read it here: Cendol Bismillah, Taiping.
Okay, skip dulu any review of Ipoh foods. This time I will review one restaurant that I go during my holiday to Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan. Actually there are a lot of restaurants there, but I’ll just review this restaurant because I think they are quite unique because it does not served seafood (as in most restaurant in Port Dickson) but a western-like type of food.
Yup, before this I had review one stall in this place that also served Western dishes, you may refer that post here. But I think, that stall is not so special compared to what I will review this time. The main difference about this stall compared to the previous stall is that, this stall served the steak in sizzling way (by using hotplate). This bring the uniqueness in the food. But, later I will served you the picture~ :muahh1:
Anyway, I quite like this stall foods because of it’s uniqueness. The taste also not bad. But there are lack of seats here, sometimes on the weekends, it was hard to find a table. Maybe because there are 2 good steak stall here. Because this stall is near to Lanun or Pirate Steakhouse, another favourable steakhouse here in Damansara Uptown. But I may review about it later.
So here is my conclusion on this stall.
Food: Nice, Unique and Tasty~Me likey~I prefer grilled Chicken Chop rather that being deep fried.
Environment: Open food court, Comfortable, but sometimes when you come in weekend it was hard to find a sit. But they used “free seats” here, means you can seat anywhere and order on any stall.
Price: Very reasonable for a price of western dishes. Most of the price is below RM10.
So, that’s all, location map at the end of the post, click “Eat More” to view the “mouth watering” photo~ :hehehe1:
or in English, Murni Discovery Restaurant @ Taipan 9 USJ, Selangor.
Yeah, found one more amazing restaurant at USJ Taipan Business Centre, before this I had blogged one good Ayam Penyet Restaurant HERE. Taipan Business Centre was quite famous to the Subang peoples as it offers lot of restaurant to hangout for late nite dinner or supper.
But this restaurant that I will blogged about is the newly opened restaurant and one of the branches of a “quite famous” restaurant in Kelana Jaya. The restaurant named Murni Discovery and I think they served amazing foods here.
Anyway, before going to this branch restaurant, I had go to it’s main branch, and I’m quite upset with its food =(. But this restaurant change it all and I will tell you why later. At their main branch, it’s so pack with people, service was quite late and food was not too good (to me lah). I’ve long time not going to their main branches mainly because too many people there.
So my verdict for this restaurant.
Food: Wow, it’s nice man!! Really you should try this restaurant. Ok stay calm~ Erm, to me, the food is quite good. They have plenty variation of foods, from western to local foods. Some of the dishes is a blend of Local and Western food, for example the Chicken Chop Fried Rice, so it’s quite unique here. They did provide you the menu for you to choose the dishes, but my recommendation are, as for this time (15/2/2011):
– Nasi Goreng Ayam Pandan, and
– Nasi Goreng Chicken Chop.
And I will update this recommended list as I visit the restaurant again later, InsyaAllah.
Environment: Better than the main branch. Easier to order. Bigger and Comfortable.
Price: Affordable. Not too expensive compared to Williams Corner. But food portions is smaller.
Therefore, hope you enjoy the food pictures after the break.
