it’s mr. khairul’s treat, and the special guest is abah who finally gets a break after the wedding, and my new bro-in-law nash, who just got married to my younger sister syida. the place – a popular indonesian restaurant serving delicious nasi padang (basically steamed rice with a lot of different dishes of our choice from chicken to ducks to veggies) called ‘simpang tiga’.
click here to read my review when i first came here with abah and my youngest sis azi.
the restaurant ‘simpang 3’ is really spacious. head on to the counter up front where they put all the dishes. choose what you want, and the staff will bring it to your table.
the newlyweds : nash & syida
chilli prawn (udang masak cili)
sayur pucuk – i like! i love this ever since my eldest sister’s indo maid cooked it. this is one yummy dish!
must have – ayam bakar (grilled chicken), sweet, succulent, tender chicken meat!
this is mr. khairul’s favorite – gulai kaki sapi. the gulai (gravy) is really good, but the texture of the ‘kaki sapi’ is really weird. gooey yet cheewy yet..yet.. i couldn’t describe it! it’s like eating a very savoury hard jelly!
sambal terung. i don’t really like eggplant because the texture is much to soft to be in a sambal (chili paste) – haha, but mr. khairul loves this one too.
pergedil – potato nugget!
my eldest sister and her sons – talk about ‘really reaching out’ for food! hihi
abah & umi. abah really enjoy indo food, especially this nasi padang.

the newlyweds shared a coconut drink. awww.
my yummy sirap bandung! (rose syrup in milk – yum!)
azi and her fiance could’ve made it for this lunch but they were sending her buddies to the train station to catch the ETS (electric train service) back to kl. it was a most enjoyable makan-makan as it was my final lunch in ipoh before heading back to KL.
a simple thing as eating together, as a family. at the same table. enjoyable good food. sharing stories. these are the moments to treasure for always.
restoran simpang tiga is at greentown ipoh, taking up more than 3 lots of shophouses. you can’t miss it. check out my previous posting on this place!
