Different Taste Restaurant, Bercham, Ipoh

Last year, we had a delicious meal at Different Taste .. it was so memorable that we decided to revisit again when we were in Ipoh recently.

Surprisingly, the staff still remembered us from our visit last year. We ordered all the same dishes that we had last year and also added on salted egg yolk squid later (after we saw it on the menu).

First to arrive was the lala (RM22), served with chillis, lots of garlic, ginger and spring onions. Still as good as we remembered it! As always, Baby D demolished almost half the plate of the lala.

Baby C enjoyed the fishballs (RM12 for 8) most, so she ended up having four. The texture was really bouncy.. delicious!

What we came here for... the claypot crab with glass noodles (RM75 per crab). I was really looking forward to having this dish (would always reminisce about the meaty claw from last year) so imagine my disappointment when we peeled the crab claw and there wasn't much meat (it was a big claw but almost hollow inside).  For the price we were paying, it was definitely a letdown. I mentioned it to the staff and all they said was that they sometimes receive deliveries of not so good crabs. They reduced the price to RM60 for the dish, though I much rather have a nice meaty claw.

The salted egg yolk squid (RM22) made up for the crab dish. Deep fried til crispy perfection, we enjoyed this so much that we ended up ordering yet another plate.

Opening times: 12pm to 9.30pm daily.

Price: Total bill RM152.30 for 4 pax.

Location: Different Taste, 72 Persiaran Bercham Selatan 2, Taman Desa Kencana, 31400 Ipoh, Perak. (Street parking available)

Beta KL Grand Opening Party

It was an amazing evening of good food, cocktails and music at Beta KL's Grand Opening Party earlier this week. Guests were treated to canapes (ox tongue, shrimp, mini sliders, winged bean salad and fried chicken), wine, beer, and a Nitro station before the unveiling of Chef Raymond Tham's chocolate masterpiece, Tanah Air which marks the beginning of a new culinary journey for the owners of this restobar.

Guests also embarked on a cocktail pairing, which showcased three of the restaurant's signature dishes (scallops with kangkung, duck pongteh with roti canai wrap and Earl grey chocolate dessert) and delicious cocktails. Thanks to the Beta KL team for having us on this fun evening!
