Tao Fu Faa Smile Dec 22, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Kopitiam

I've never been a fan of desserts and honestly, I'd rather have fries than have something sweet after a meal. It's just never my thing even though my family enjoys having dessert at the end.

Yet when we were in Ipoh, I pestered them to get some Tao Fu Faa after brunch and made sure we went to one in town that I've been told is pretty good. A friend of mine is a local so he knows the best places to get good food and recommended Woong Kee - so it wasn't surprising to see people queueing up for their bowl of soybean curd.

 
I LOVED IT! The bowl was small but felt so traditional and in it was super soft Tao Fu Faa with some simple syrup. Every spoonful of this was so comforting and made me happier each time - so much so that we all got an extra bowl just to indulge in.

Must try this whenever you're in Ipoh town. Just got slightly earlier to avoid the crowd and also be prepared to eat this standing up since they do not provide tables for you. It's kind of like an eat & go system.

Roadtrip Smile Dec 15, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

Before heading into Ipoh town, a favourite place that my family loves to stop by for an afternoon meal is Pun Chun. This is a restaurant which we have frequented quite a number of times over the years and whenever we get the chance, it's definitely a place that we will go to for lunch when we're on a roadtrip.

This afternoon, we stopped by there and immediately I was taken back to my childhood days where my mom would order food for me then try to feed me. Unsuccessfully might I add because I am always determined to feed myself. 

 
Without fail we have to order the double-boiled chicken leg soup. I remember this tasting stronger back then but today, it was somewhat lighter in essence. However it is still good because the flavour of the meat and vegetables has seeped into the liqud which gives it this beautiful aroma. This, I finished it all myself without any effort. 

 
Then I had the Dried Wantan Noodles with Char Siew. This is my absolute favourite because the noodles are springy with a bite to it, perfectly coated in the savoury but also sweet sauce. The taste hasn't changed very much which is a good thing and neither did the portions. The wantans are nicely filled with meat and tasted nice especially when eaten hot. 

I really enjoyed my first meal in Ipoh. I only wish I could eat this more often.

Family Gathering  Smile Dec 09, 2015

As always whenever my aunt from Singapore comes down for a visit, our entire family on the maternal side always have dinner together. Our first choice is and probably always will be Wan Jia even if the distance there is quite a bit. But we never mind driving a little further just for some good food. 

 
Our first order is the Thousand Island Sauced Pork Ribs. Usually I would prefer marmite rather than this but then at Wan Jia, this dish is freaking amazing that it has fast become a favourite of mine. It's kind of hard to describe the flavours exactly but it's tangy, salty and also slightly sweet. The ribs are always cooked nicely, crispy on the outside while the meat remains nicely juicy. 

 
We also ordered their special Bean Curd braised with Abalone Slices on top. This was everyone's favourite because they loved the sauce that it came with. I however was partial to this only because beancurd was never really something I was crazy about, though I did have two big pieces to myself. It's nice when doused with the sauce and mixed with some white rice. 

 
Another dish that is also a favourite is the Kam Heong Lala. This dish had a good punch of flavours and nice hit of spice from the chili padi that is used. Plus the clams are super gresh so they are juicy while absorbing the flavour of the sauce very well.

 
Then as an added treat for everyone, we got this braised pumpkin with lots of seafood. They have abalone, sea cucumber, dried oysters, mushrooms and fish maw which have all been  braised in a similar sauce to the beancurd dish. This was also pretty good as the filling was very big portion which kept all of us at the table very happy.

So worth dining at Wan Jia every time because the portions are always big and yet the price are not too exurbent while the quality of taste & ingredietns never fail.

Deep Fried Chicken Wings Smile Nov 19, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood | Noodles

Despite restaurant 52 being super far from KL and the drive there can be a little nerve-wrecking, especially if there's an unexpected jam. However it would be a crime to not dine there if by chance we were around that area or had free time to spare. Just the fried chicken wings alone would have me drive there if the craving for it is strong enough.

 
Unlike other restaurants where their chicken wings have been marinated with 'nam yu' paste, the one at restaurant 52 is done differently. I do not know what it's been marinated in however the skin is always super crispy and flavourful.

Based on what mom told me, it's coated in some sort of special salt seasoning & also spring onions, garlic and chili padi for some extra flavour. It sounds a bit redundant to do that since the chicken is already cooked, yes it does but you will not think so when you do try it. 

Whenever we order a large batch of this, it wouldn't be long before the entire plate is cleared of any signs of food because it is that good. Imagine freshly fried chicken that is really fragrant from the extra little seasonings with super crispy skin, heaven in a bite.

THAI Smile Nov 19, 2015

Categories : Thai | Restaurant | Seafood

I'm probably repeating myself for the millionth time but thai food is definitely one of my favourite cuisines ever. However to find good and afforadable one around town is actually more challenging than one would assume. But when I do find one then I am always going back to have my fix of spicy and sour thai food, SongKhla is one of those places.

 
A definite order whenever we dine there is their Manggo Salad because it's amazing. The mango is nicely sour-ish with crunch bits from the peanuts and also dried shrimp. Then there's also a nice kick from the bird's eye chilli that is added into the mix and the raw onions too. 

 
Then there's the Chiang Mai Chicken and it is seriously the BEST dish from the restaurant. The chicken pieces are nicely deep fried to crispy perfection before being tossed in the creamy curry. Although the meat is supposed to be the star of the dish which it sort of is, but the curry sauce is also amazing. Perfectly creamy and also spicy, flavourful bite each time especially when poured over steaming hot white rice. 

Just writing about the food at SongKhla makes me crave for it all already. Do try their chicken, you won't regret it!
