We wanted to try out one of the coffeeshops in Ipoh which is known for its curry noodles. Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on our side as they were sold out early when we arrived at around 1245PM. So, we had to look for other option… and we ended up here at Sun Seng Fatt which also known for their curry noodles (I only got to know this when I’m writing this post after a quick Google search).

Sun Seng Fatt, Ipoh

Searching for parking was surprising a breeze so was getting a table on a midday-lunch weekend. A quick glance at the menu as well as what other customers are happily tucking to and you will get the idea that their main forte are noodles.

What’s surprising, for me at least, was how the orders were took and passed on to the kitchen via wireless devices. Pretty high tech for such coffee shop, eh… The coffee shop was rather clean and airy, probably due the open ends of a corner shop.

The orders took a while to arrive while we got our fresh juices (RM2.10 per cup) first.

Ipoh Hor Fun by Sun Seng Fatt, Ipoh

I opted for Ipoh Hor Fun (RM5) as I wasn’t feeling really well (sore throat was imminent) while my friend went for their dry curry noodles. Despite the rather subtle looking compared to Loke Wooi Kee’s or Thean Chun’s version, the chicken broth was surprisingly quite tasty; savoury with subtle hints of prawn essence. The flat noodles, like any other stalls in Ipoh, were silky smooth with nice chew to it.

Initially, I didn’t really like the dry curry noodles (RM5) when I took my first mouthful. It’s probably due to the viscosity of broth. But then, it grew on me as the scant, spicy broth (or maybe I should refer it as gravy since it’s a mixture of soup and thick gravy) was rich and fragrant. It got addictive after the first spoon so much so that I was happily finishing it off.

All in all, the noodles were fine. Though there might be other places/stalls/coffee shops which able to triumph this place, but I wouldn’t mind coming back here again for its dry curry noodles and dumplings (I read that it’s pretty good too).

Though we could go for another round of steamboat, we were not really in mood for it. Hence, a quick good search has brought us to this place in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highland.

Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Locating Rosette Café was quite a chore. We roughly knew where the café was but we still had to look out for it. Without a proper signage, I had to rely on photos posted on the internet to search for it. The only landmark that I managed to spot from the photos was the Ambank.

Despite its small space, the café exuded relaxing ambiance with tables and chairs arranged close to one another. The menu was pretty extensive. It has probably more than 50 dishes covering from rice to noodles, eastern dishes to western meals. The café also served steamboat too… pretty much a common thing for restaurants in Cameron Highland.

Drinks at Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Nothing wanting to go full on, we opted for something simpler; their dinner set meal which consists of bread and butter, soup, main (western) meal and a drink. There were two sets and we went for both; Set Meal A (RM16.50) and Set Meal B (RM18.50).

Soup and buns at Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The food didn’t take long to arrive although the café was half filled. The warm buns were quite tasty, went well with the knob of butter. The mushroom soup, however, was pretty much run of the mill.

Black Pepper Steak by Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The black pepper steak (Set Meal B) was pretty tender. But due to their seasoning of sorts, it somehow has the sweet taste after each bite. I didn’t really like it but I didn’t hate it either.

Chicken Chop with Mushroom Sauce by Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The chicken chop with mushroom sauce (Set Meal A), on the other hand, was pretty good. The chicken was well marinated and deep fried to perfection. The skin was crispy while the meat was still juicy; pretty good to eat it on its own even without the sauce. The mashed potatoes on the side was probably of those instant ones; nothing to shout about.

For the price we paid for, I guess they were quite affordable. The portion was alright and the service was okay. We left the café feeling just right, enough space for a cuppa and dessert.
