It is very rare that franchise chain is available in Ipoh before the capital city, but it seems that the Cruises Steak House which I assume originally from Penang has had more than ten branches in the Northern region and there is already some plan to expand to the Central region to the Southern region.
Nevertheless, the Cruises Steak House at the Aeon Klebang mall offer respectable steak and it's no wonder that the place seems to be full house during the dinner time, and a vast contrast compare to some of the other food outlet within the mall. The price of the food is reasonable; considering the environment and the quality of it. My parents especially my father likes the food that he ordered, on both occasion that we have been there.

My colleagues told me that there is a tom yum restaurant in Bukit Mertajam which serves very spicy tom yum noodles and we have been talking about going there for supper for quite some time and last week finally, I got the chance to go there to taste this spicy tom yum noodles that they have been talking about.
Heng Heng Tom Yam Mee Restaurant is located at Lebuh Nangka 1, Bukit Mertajam and it is about thirty minutes drive from where I work. We went there for late dinner after work last Wednesday. There was not many people around by the time we reach there, but more customers are coming to Heng Heng after 10, so I supposed they are coming for supper.
We ordered 2 bowls of to yum noodle, one with egg and one without, and a bowl of tom yum porridge; and I'm surprise that kuey teow soup is served here as well. Like Joo Heng, we are supposed to select our sides such as fishball, crab meat balls or abalone slices just like how we do for fishball noodle in Ipoh. And also like Joo Heng, the tom yum here is also without kaffir lime leaves and celery although I did see some mentha leaves on top of the bowl of porridge - which make me conclude that the tom yum style in Penang area is totally different with Ipoh or even Kuala Lumpur.
