East Ocean Restaurant @ Kampar.

Every year my Mil's children will treat her to a sumptuous dinner at different restaurants around Ipoh or Kampar.

For this year's dinner it was held at East Ocean Restaurant @ Kampar which has branches in Chemor and Menglembu in Perak.

It is located near the Tesco Hypermarket and the restaurant is air-conditioned and occupied three shoplot.

Parking is a breeze as most of the shops are closed in the night.

The dinner started with the Longevity noodle-wheat flour noodle cooked in superior grade soy sauce with generous strips of pork and slivers of soft and smooth mushroom seated on a bed of blanched Kow Choy.

Four Combination Platter-served on a big plate with an eye catching "sea design" 1) crabmeat/seaweed/salted egg rolls with a dash of Mayonnaise 2) Stir fried fresh scallop with onion/red & green sliced capsicum. 3) a slice of Lotus root topped with Fish paste (too much flour)/shrimp/gingko and bathed with a smooth tasty gravy. 4) balls of white Dragon fruit.

Steamed Herbal Chicken in soup-filled with mushroom and mini abalone-tasty and herbal flavored -a bit like chicken essence.

Roast Suckling piglet-normally it is all skin only but this one got lean meat attached to the skin-served with Mantou.

Steamed White Promfret (1 kg)-smooth and tender with no fishy after taste-good grade soy sauce/peanut oil and garnished with cilantro and spring onion.

Deep fried Sea prawns-big, fresh and succulent-would have tasted better if tossed in more Soy sauce with gravy to go with the bed of spring onion.

Mixed Vegetables-sweet pea bean, celery, lotus root, Lily bulb, carrot and cashew nuts-a great dish.

Sweet Dessert of cool Soybean and white fungus.

Pastry-deep fried Wheat flour dough with a Sesame crust and Pandan flavored filling-not overly sweet.

Ice cream cake-corn flavored for her 83th Birthday.

Total bill:Rm488/
Location: 33A, 35, 36, Jalan Perdana,
Taman Kampar Perdana, Kampar,
Tel: 05-465-8890/8879.

normally I'd take a lot of time to separate the fat from the crispy skin of the suckling pig. But if there's only lean meat, it's a heaven!

To correct Simple Girl's statement, the East Ocean is actually in Ipoh Garden SOUTH, not EAST.
Kok Thai and Jusco are situated in the East.

But true enough, that Tung Hoi never did much for me. Kinda pathetic though, having bad wedding dinners and family meals there.

C&CIKI/thule a.k.a leo-delicious.
SGirl/J2Kfm-we booked six tables and the food was fabulously good and they put many top restaurants and hotel's banquet dinner set to shame. For this dinner set it will cost at least Rm800/ in KL.
