Dinner again.  Smile Dec 26, 2015

Since we are back in Ipoh, no doubt we will go get food at one of our favourite restaurant and despite it being a holiday, we are glad that it wasn't too filled with people. So we got a table instantly and got right down to ordering because we were super hungry after a long day out - not counting to plenty of treats we had in between.

 
No doubt we would order the stir-fried char siew. OMG, this dish is the epitome of indulgence because the meat had perfect layers of fat & meat which is coated in the sweet sticky sauce that has caramelised onto the meat. We ordered two plates of this because one wasn't enough.

 
Then, because everyone love's this, we ordered baby french bean stir-fried with garlic. Simple but also very delicious which everybody loved and finished up with ease. 

 
This was a new dish we tried that night. It is braised pork ribs with tendons and... As crazy as it sounds, this tasted heavenly because there's just so much flavour in each bite. There's a hint of sweetness from the different seasoning in the sauce but yet, not too much because there's also a savoury porky flavour. This was our first time trying this dish out of recommendation but we probably will be back just to have another plate of this.

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

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.

Memories Smile Dec 15, 2015

I remember when I was younger, we would take several trips out of KL just for a getaway. Our usual place to visit is Ipoh & Penang because these two places are well known for their food. And the one place that I will always remember very fondly is Kong Heng in Oldtown Ipoh. 

Whenever we eat there, the place will be filled to the brim with locals and people from other states. They are there to try the famous and very delicious noodles.

 
My favourite is the Ipoh Sah Hor Fun. This bowl comes with strips of chicken and prawns atop the noodles, plus some garlic chives for added flavours. Usually I never really like eating hor fun but somehow I can finish this entire bowl by myself. The taste is exactly the same as I remembered it to be and I'm happy to know that the quality plus standard never drops.

 
Then there's the pork noodles with lots of intestinal bits. This one is my mom's favourite and she always orders this but I usually only enjoy my own bowl of hor fun. But that day I tried a bit of this and found it to be really good too. The ingredients are plenty and the noodles are perfectly al-dente. Then the soup, it has SO much flavour that one spoonful left me quite surprised. 

 
Then the meal is never complete unless we have a plate of tau geh simply steamed then doused with soya sauce. This represents the simple pleasures in life because it's probably the cheapest thing ever and yet, the tastiest. 

Let's just say we never fail to pay a visit to this restaurant whenever we're in Ipoh or happen to be driving by.

Ipoh dinner Smile Oct 13, 2015

After taking a slow drive down to Ipoh, stopping every now and then for toilet breaks on top of getting more food, we reached just in time for dinner. Since everyone was kind of tired already we were not too bothered with searching for a specific place to eat at. So the first restaurant that caught our attention is the first one we ventured into. 

Here, we ordered a few dishes that came recommended by their wait-staff.

 
Stir-Fried Char Siew was one of the main and truthfully, I was quite pleased with this. Never would I have considered to cook char siew but this tasted very good. Some pieces were more caramelised than others so it was slightly crispy and sweet. Everyone at the table really enjoyed this.

 
We also got the Steamed Chicken. Since I've had better ones in KL, I felt like this was only so-so. At least to me it was since everyone else thought it was pretty good.

 
Another dish that came recommended was the Fish-Paste stuffed Tau Fu. I actually quite liked this dish because the fish paste was very nicely flavoured which masked the weird taste of tau fu which I usually dislike. Plus the sauce that it came with was nice especially when mixed with white rice.

 
For vegetable we ordered their Stir-Fried Kailan with Yam. It's quite an odd combination because we usually have one or the other in a dish. But the chef cooked this dish quite well and we all gobbled it up by the end of the night.

We found this restaurant by chance and now that we've tried it, we will most definitely be back again when it is possible. Only this time we will try other things off their menu to see if it is as good.
