~project food haunting: gomok cafe~



Hipster cafes are growing like mushroom in Ipoh...Gomok cafe is one of them...Located in the centre of Ipoh town, you have probably came across Gomok at the corner shoplot while you are roaming about here...It has a cute round chubby belly dude in an office attire as its mascot...


Why it is named as Gomok?

Actually I do not have an exact answer for that...It is probably because...
  • Gomok is related to 'Gemuk' which is fat
  • The foods are served in a big sized portion
  • You will end up fat if you eat a lot (that is a fact...lol)

Gomok had been operating for almost two years now...I finally got a chance to pay a visit here on last Thursday...Honestly, I am not keen to make an appearance in Ipoh town because of several reasons...The road here is quite congested, it is hard to find a parking space and the MBI personnels are everywhere to issue you with their summon letter...

Last Thursday evening, I drove my friend to UTC Ipoh to renew her driving license...I brought my sisters together with us...Since everybody was hungry, we decided to have our dinner nearby before we were going back home...And that was how we were end up dined in Gomok Cafe ...

Decoration


My first impression when I stepped my foot here was a ''wow''...I found that Gomok cafe was quite nicely decorated...I love how they decorated this place...Simple, neat and tidy but trendy...Not forget to mention on the lighting effect, it could give you to experience a kind of romantic feeling...



Foods


When we looked at the menu, it took us a moment to decide what to eat...Just like we were in the middle of an exam, thinking on the best answer to choose...I am a kind of a go for a cheap food person...For me the price here was not that cheap...As far as I could remembered the main courses price, range from RM 15 and above...For the signature drinks it would cost you from RM 5 and above...But still, you could get a bottle of mineral water at RM 2...

Gomok Cafe offers you with fusion local and western delicacies...Usually when you ate western food, most of the restaurants offered you to choose either one of these gravies, brown sauce, mushroom sauce or black paper sauce...What was different about Gomok compared to others, the western foods here served with varieties of unique gravies such as cream spinach sauce which i never tasted before...

The foods presentation was nice and they came in a quite big portion, suited with the price...We were struggling ourself to finish our meals...We tried both of its local and western dishes that day...Overall, the fried rice tasted just so and so whilst the pastas tasted quite good...

Services and Facilities


Eventhough it is a corner lot, the premise was quite narrow...I personally thought that this premise was quite small and have limited seating place...That day, by 2030 hours, the premise was almost full with customers...I am not sure whether the second floor already opened for the customers or not...


Cellular respiration is considered as an exothermic redox reaction which release heat...That is why we tend to feel extra hotter especially when we were in the crowd...Here, you do not have to worry about that matter... Eventhough the premise was quite small, it was well ventilated...It got fans and air conditioner now...

It would not take you a longer time to wait for you meal to be served on your table...Or meals arrived within 20-25 minutes after we placed our order...And what I like most, our meals came in at one go...If you are looking for a free wifi, unfortunately, no free wifi provided...But it was not a big deal for me...

You do not have to worry if you do not bring a lot of cash with you...You can pay your dining bill by using your debit or credit card...Before we were leaving this premise, one of the staff asked our feedback on their meals...What could I said more ''I am full'' ...lol
