1919 Restaurant & Gallery

In our recent visit to Ipoh, my sister took us to 1919 Restaurant & Gallery for dinner. It is located at Jalan Medan Ipoh 6 with Tesco as the nearest landmark.

I have no idea why they add the word "Gallery" to the name but the availability of antiques display around the restaurant are pretty much self explanatory. It feels like a mini museum here.

The interior is pretty cozy. Interestingly, the restaurant use those marble tables and old wooden chairs design to give a feel of the old kopitiam.

Even the tea drinking cup is rather unique

Curry fish head and spinach. Thumbs up for the curry. It has a distinctive taste which I can't find anywhere else.

Antique tofu is regarded as one of the specialty here. Sea cucumbers are stuffed inside the tofu.

I believe this is the King Sauce Chicken. It has a combination of sweet, sour and spicy falvour to it.

This is my favourite dish here, one of the restaurant signature dish, the white brinjal (eggplant). This is the first time I come across this kind of dish and it tastes really great and crispy.

However, the food here don't come cheap. I don't know the total damage that night but it was around RM100++.

The place is unique. But for the price of RM100++ for all the foods, i think it is ok.
