100 Yen @ Ipoh

17 06 2010

Right after a heavy afternoon downpour at Ipoh Town, I stopped by 100 Yen shop which is located right opposite of Ipoh Parade. 100 Yen prides itself for selling quality Japanese stuff ranging from kitchenware, candies, stationeries and a whole plethora of interesting items.  While I have come across many 100 Yen shops around KL, this one has to be the biggest by far.

Apart from the imported Japanese stuff, 100 Yen is also famous for its snow ice. Unlike our local Ais Batu Campur (ABC), 100 Yen’s snow ice is shaved from a block of frozen juice. The flavour therefore originates from ice rather than the syrup and other stuff found in our ABC. The texture of the ice is also worth mentioning. It is really fine. Once you put a scoop of ice into your mouth it will melt like ice-cream. The peanut flavour snow ice tasted really good. They added some chocolate syrup as well as some peanuts to compliment the taste. Nice!

Check out the fine texture of the ice..

I ordered the Mango flavoured once which is their best selling so far.

Besides the ice, they also added a few cubes of fresh mangoes. Absolutely yummy.

If you love icy cold dessert, make sure you make your way to any 100 Yen shop.

Pick n’ Brew @ Glenmarie

17 06 2010

While looking for a place to eat around Glenmarie, we found this hidden gem tucked away in the industrial zone of the area. Pick n’ Brew is a nice and cozy restaurant located on the corner of CNI building at Jalan U1/17. It took us quite a fair bit of effort to locate this place but thanks to Google Map and some wrong turninsg, we managed to find it eventually.

First thing that struck me was how nice the interior was. I couldn’t help but to snap some pictures while waiting for our food to come.

And speaking about food, we opted for their set lunch which comes with a soup of the day, a main course and a choice of either coffee or tea.

The soup of the day happened to be Tomato Soup which tasted great.

There were three choices for the main course namely Herb Crusted Fish…

… Teriyaki Chicken.

I had the Grilled Lamb Shoulder and it was worth trying. The meat was nicely cooked without the usual gamey smell. Did I mention that it was very tasty too? Price wise, each set lunch costs RM 28.00 which is not cheap but the ambiance and food makes it worth it.
