brewsterlane kitchen

brewsterlane kitchen

brewsterlane kitchen is opened by an avid antique collector/repairer/seller, mr lee and his son. how did we come about this place? i mean of all places to eat in ipoh which have been tried and tested for good food, why come to a place relatively unheard of and parking is ... well, just horrendous as the shop is situated at the traffic lights junction. the answer is simple: mr lee repairs our antique furnitures and my mom thought it'd be nice to pay a visit to his new eatery-antique gallery when we were back ipoh last week.

how is japanese cuisines and chinese antique furnitures related is beyond me. but anyway who cares if the food is good, right?

well, to start off... the menu is just disappointing. no pictures, no descriptions and confusing. nevermind, i suppose flaws are inevitable being a new entrant in the f&b industry. maybe the food taste good with/without a nice tempting menu like sushi/pasta zanmai.

every set comes with a bowl of coleslaw, a chawanmushi, a plate of cauliflower, carrot, mushroom sidedish (??), a bowl of soup of the day (its not miso soup wtf), a bowl of rice, fruits, a refillable cup of green tea and the chosen main dish.

slice beef in sukiyaki sauce- rm24.90

boneless chicken in shoyu butter sauce- rm13.90

mackeral fish fillet grilled with salt- rm18.90

pork belly with sizzling tofu- rm14.90

pork belly (japanese curry)- rm11.90

mixed pork deep fried with bread crumbs- rm12.90

fish and chips- rm7.90
(from 2.30-6.30pm free 1 coke)

while i thought my slice beef in sukiyaki sauce tasted rather ok... most of them complained about their dishes being salty and un-japaneselike. either salt is cheap or the chef was feeling rather salty that day. heehee. my mom and uncle had fun oooh-ing and aaah-ing over the antiques though.

i think mr lee and son should just stick to the antique business rather than f&b. or turn the place into an antique gallery + olden style kopitiam. just my 2 cents worth though.
