Indulgence Restaurant & Living, Ipoh – my Designer Breakfast the morning after

I woke up this morning and asked myself “What’s for breakfast?”.

Immediately visions of thick fluffy french toast and poached eggs came to mind. I’m a huge huge fan of western breakfast. Give me toast, eggs, sausages and muesli anytime. Other than the occasional nasi lemak & dim sum, my immediate preference for breakfast is Continental or American.

It was while I was pondering where to head to for a good American fry-up did flashbacks of my indulgent Ipoh trip came into mind.
Oh, I love Indulgence Restaurant and Living. I love my Qatrynka suite and I love my wonderful breakfast the day after.
Let me share with you the breakfast that awaits me when I woke up from my slumber on the four-poster bed.

Every Breakfast set comes with a choice of coffee/tea or fresh juice. Served from 9am onwards until 12pm, breakfast is not available on Mondays/Tuesdays as Indulgence Restaurant is closed on those days. However, but the restaurant remains opened for hotel guests.

There’s a plethora of items to choose from the menu, but mine was as predictably as carbo-licious as possible.

Here’s Andrew’s morning pick-me up – Julie’s signature Hibiscus Latte, with my pancakes in the background. Julie has been incorporating hibiscus into her menu and cooking recently, as she has partnered up with another friend who has a hibiscus farm in Malaysia.

This Hibiscus Latte was a tad sweet, but what it does is it perfumed the latte with its floral scent and gave the coffee an overall pleasant floral sweetness. It might have been more suitable for me, since I like my coffee sweet. Andrew could barely finish it.
My healthy choice of beverage for breakfast is a Strawberry Milkshake. And Indulgence Restaurant serves a very mean, luscious and thick one too.

Oops, not so healthy after all? Nahh.. it still is I’m sure.
There’s protein from the milk and vitamins from the strawberries right?  😉

My pancakes takes 20 minutes to serve, but not to worry, it was already informed beforehand on the menu.

These pancakes were definitely worth the wait. It was incredibly fluffy and light, thanks to use of purely only egg whites in the recipe. I’m not sure it should rightfully be named pancakes either, as it’s more of an egg souffle. I love bananas with pancakes and this was even better as they came drizzled in caramel.

Andrew’s choice of breakfast actually topped mine! We both loved this dish. I wished I can remember the ingredients in it, but vaguely I could recall eggs & spinach. The sardines (not the Ayam brand ones, mind you!) were hardly fishy, something which I didn’t like about sardines. These gourmet ones were flaky, meaty and plain delicious.

If I could make such wonderful breakfast each weekend, I would!

Good news is, I’m moving to a new place next month! It has a big kitchen and I’m thrilled knowing that I could bake, whip up American brekkie and slowly doubleboil nourishing soups each week from Feb onwards!  :DD


Time to put my Ikea Malaysia Ambassadorship Card into good use too! I have been at lost as to what I should buy the last few months as I have almost everything I need at my current place.

Well, the new kitchen would need new kitchen utensils so it’s Ikea shopping time!

      Yes, plenty of good cooking frm my kitchen soon! And No I didnt move the bed 😛
      I agree, a lot of people when they go Ipoh – will eat local food, but for special meals with gourmet ingredients like this, I think only Indulgence has it!

  11. Caren

    1. rebeccasaw
