Bumbu Bali, Bibiwok Nyonya & Kiat Seng). On an ad-hoc basis, I, yes I decided - let's try Restaurant Ho Poh because mum quite like Chinese food. We sat in the traditional ambiance, menu came and I (I again) called for "out of our usual" type of dishes. Dad however already sounded that he wants a bowl of noodles and drinks included as well.

San Bao (Herbal) Juice
Ice Soya Bean
Arriving first was the fish ball noodle - simply cooked for the simple flavours, brimming with bouncy fish balls and green veggies, dad loved every bit of it.
Our meal started with "Hopoh Rui Cha", a healthy mixture of rice, fresh green veggies, fried shrimps, peanuts and fried shallots, accompanied with "green is the colour" soup.
The rice everyone didn't mind but the healthy soup made with a couple of green leafy veggies, only mum and me pleasured into. The family including my half-half just wouldn't go for more than a single scoop of the quite bland soup.
The rest of the dishes arrived simultaneously. Bitter gourd omelette - fluffy eggs fried in lots of oil and with thinly sliced still slightly bitter gourd, we equally shared and finished off.
The crunchy mixed vegetables obviously was an immediate sell-out.
The fried fish generously topped with aromatic fried garlic, coriander leaves and smothered with soy sauce, no complains from the family and absolutely loved.
The tender ginger chicken in a thick lightly scented soy ginger gravy was so good eaten with rice.
All the dishes were cleared and after paying RM125.00 for this healthy meal and in a restaurant I've never heard off, I must say service was attentive, no regrets for coming over and I won't mind returning again and again.
