1977 New Restaurant Ipoh Chicken Rice
I went to try this restaurant with another two of my colleagues during the lunch time. I did not revisit this restaurant since after its re-opening in Mid Valley Megamall. It used to be located at the Boulevard building before moving to the Level 3 in Mid Valley Megamall.
We ordered the set lunch which came with a drink. My colleague ordered the Roasted Chicken and Roasted Pork with Rice set.
And another colleague and myself ordered the Chicken Hor Fun.
I personally, do not really prefer to eat steamed chicken and this noodle appeared to be quite little chicken meat and it has a lot of fat. I did not really like it at all. It came with two big pork balls and some vegetable. Simple but oily.
Location : T-013D & 061 , Third Floor, Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Ambience : It has two storey, if you are in big group, you can go to upstairs. Overall, it is quite and not crowded.
Rating : 1/5. For me, it is just a normal food that we can get in food court which does not need to come with such a high price. It is overpriced.

I went to this food court located at Level 3 of AMK Hub, Singapore. You can use your Plus card to get discounts or buy the food at cheaper price. It has plenty of choices to choose from this food court. And so far I tried two stalls.
Minced Meat with Mushroom Mee Poh
It tasted alright with generous ingredients and noodle. I ordered it with slight chilli paste, commonly found in Singapore eatery places. It was different than the normal noodles that we eat in Kuala Lumpur. Normally, we have Mee Poh for Wanton Noodle only. But here, it is very commonly.
Kimchi Soup with Rice
The soup was spicy to my level of acceptance. It gave vegetables, tofu and glass noodles without any meat. It came with a bowl of rice and 2 side dishes, anchovies and kimchi. The kimchi did not taste good. I think we can get something better than this one for the same price.
Location: 53 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3, #03-12, AMK Hub, Singapore.
Operating Hours: 9.00am – 10.00pm

New York Bakery, Sovereign Hill
We were at Sovereign Hill for a day tour. After went through the gold digging session and trying my luck to get some gold pieces from the stream of water nearby the entrance, we decided to stop by to relieve ourselves at the nearest washroom. And, my cousin told me that there was a restaurant next to the washroom.
Since, we tried but failed to search for the little shop that sells pies, we just settled down at this restaurant. All the setting of the restaurant were based on the olden days design except we were using modern apparatus for dining.
There was nothing cheap to get from the menu, so we just went according to our desires. And, I chose to have Coffee Latte, not hoping that it could keep me awake for the rest of the day, however, other drinks were almost the same price.
Fish and Chips
We both chose to have the fish and chips, which was the most expensive fish and chip we ever had here. It came with lots of fries and a bowl of salads, so that could be the reason why it was expensive.
Of course, if we could have more tartar sauce it would be great, as salt and pepper still did its tricks. The fish was fresh and popping hot when it was served. Same for the fries. I quite liked the dressing for the salad but I could not tell what dressing it was using.
Location: Sovereign Hills, Bradshaw St, Ballarat, Victoria 3350, Australia.
Ambience: Olden day style or setting but did not look elegant or antique. Maybe, some renovation is needed to bring back its glory.
Rating: 2/5. It is still expensive for a budget traveller like me to have this fish and chip. Though its portion is big for fries and came with salad, somehow, I expected it to give more fish.
