Brewster’s @ Old Town in Ipoh – Relocating soon to Greentown
Interior of the restaurant – The stools made long meals not as pleasant. But the bistro/cafe/bar-like ambience suits a casual dining eatery to a tee.
Brewster’s Restaurant in old town of Ipoh might have not piqued many people’s interest for the location was not as strategic, nor in the midst of a trading hub. Hence news has it that they’re relocating soon to a new premise in Greentown, tentatively opening in September of 2010.
Previous experiences at Brewster’s proved to be mediocre; or maybe it was because I usually went for the lunch sets (RM18/USD5.50++ exclusive of drinks). But they do take pride in their pizzas, spare ribs, crispy pork knuckle, pasta and such. Read on to find out more …..
Creamy Broccoli Soup included in the Lunch Set.
The deep-fried fillet of dory with cream sauce which was almost too bland/tasteless to register on our palate. The fish was good, being fresh and succulent but the starchy cream sauce did not go down well …..
Seldom do we see cubes of sugar used in the other cafes any longer. A nice touch, albeit this tea DID NOT come with the set.
Dessert of the day was a sweet block of vanilla-flavoured cake, with poppy seeds. I was not sure what it was exactly, but a cross between condensed milk, caramel, and a syrupy sweetness.
And the following would be the previous experience at Brewster’s, way back in 2008 …… Pardon the dark, grainy pictures. If you’ve been following this blog from then, you would have known the reason why.
Dessert served was Chocolate Brownie, topped with Sugar Dusting. Small portion, but moist and chocolatey enough. It was warmed before served, the way brownie should be served. Nice.
Total for 4 pax = RM99.00. Not bad, but slightly small portions. Hopefully the ala carte dishes will fare better …. Til the next time ….
