Continue from Ipoh Day 1 and Ipoh Day 2….
We woke up early. The very first thing we did was to forget about the waistline and to continue with our Ipoh Makan List, we can never miss out any good food from Ipoh; and so, let the eating journey begin…….
1. Restoran Paris – Famous Hakka Noodles and Liews
This famous Hakka Noodles stall that used to operate their business at Yin Yau Kui coffee shop is now shifted to Paris Cafe. Unlike those Hakka Noodles that we have in KL, the Hakka Noodles here is served with Tauge (bean sprout) and Yeung Liews (Yong Tau Fu). however, you don’t have the chance to pick up the Yeung Liews you love. They will just mix and match for you as soon as you place the number of servings you want. Do try their special dipping sauce that is made of pickled garlic and chili sauce.

After a good night sleep at Citygal’s house, our makan makan journey started with…
1. Dim Sum at the New Foh San
Guess i don’t have to elaborate much. Foh San serves one of the best dim sum in Ipoh. We took a hard time for the seats; thanks to Citygal for her very special fighting-for-table technique, else we will have to wait for another hoursss 😛

We had Sze Chuan Meal at 缪氏川菜 on my day 4 of visiting. Talking about Sze Chuan dishes, ones always think of red, orange, red chilies oil, chilies and dried chilies!!! Besides the hot and spicy, they do actually serve sourish food that can boost up your appetite.
缪氏川菜 is well decorated in that oldish way, giving you a real Chinese atmosphere and create a relaxing and enjoyable environment for dining. The wall is painted in red and lanterns are here and there, hanging from the ceiling.
It was super pack with OL and office staffs while we were there as it was lunch time. Contunue Reading

面点王 Mian-Dian-Wang is well-known as Chinese fast food chain in Shen Zhen. It is almost similar to those McD, KFC that appear everywhere; the only difference, 面点王 Mian-Dian-Wang serves Chinese Food rather than those fried and high calories pre-prepared food.
This is the only picture I have for their interior and environment around. I was prohibited from taking photo of their interior and deco. Guess they are a little blogger unfriendly. Here, you have to order straightly from the bar counter (something like self service as well). The chef and cooks will take order from you. There are a variety of dishes from appetizer to porridge to bao to vege to meat to dumplings to…

I am supposed to have dim sum for my very first meal on the very first day. Sadly, while we arrived at the place 西湖春天 and find that they were closed down. They were doing a very good business previously. We guessed it might be dealing with the property problems or the management of the building or something. Too shocked with no more 西湖春天, we changed our mind to a restaurant nearby, 湘鄂情 Xiang-E-Qing.
湘 Xiang resembling 湖南 Hunan, a province of China. In short, Hunan is called as Xiang after the Xiang River that runs through it. Hence, Hunanese cuisine is also called as 湘菜 Xiang Cai.
As for 鄂 E, it is representing 湖北 Hubei.
We were here in湘鄂情 Xiang-E-Qing for their Hunan Hubei cuisine 湖南湖北菜. A revisit for me as I was here before in my previous trip.
煲仔娃娃菜 is one of their best selling. The stir-fried Chinese cabbage present in the warm claypot to keep the dish warm at all time. It was really appetizing with the additional black vinegar for the hint of tangy taste and the added chilies for its little spiciness.
海带排骨汤 Double Boiled Seaweed and Pork Ribs Soup.
Hmmm, how shall I describe this?! — 老火汤. The soup was double boiled up to wheee hours until the ribs were crack easily into pieces. Besides that, the seaweeds were extremely soft and melted right between your tongue and hard palate. Contunue Reading
Back from Shen Zhen and I don’t wish to be home. Time was like fast-forwarding for me during the lovely home-stay in Shen Zhen. Well, I would never regret for cashing out my saving to purchase the air ticket and support myself with the limited pocket money.
Precious Pea has raved about Air Asia’s Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak and I decided to have a try.
The portion was rather small. It came with piping hot fragrant coconut rice, sambal, rendang chicken, boiled egg, peanuts and ikan bilis. I was happy with the pre-ordered system because they give priority and privileges for those who pre-order their meals online. Well, no waiting and no starving for me.
Due to the H1N1 problems that the world is facing now, we were not allowed to enter the airport hall once upon arrival. There were the Chinese health authorities with the masks came on board for the one-by-one passengers’ health and temperature checkups. This took about 30 minutes. Contunue Reading
It is dragon boat festival again! Sadly, this year I am not able to celebrate this festival with my family. Thanks to the blogger. I can pre-schedule this post and let it to be published on the right time.
Mum will never disappoint me; she has made me some Crystal Zong Zi 水晶粽 and pre celebrate this festival with me before I am heading for my trip. Don’t have ‘ba chang’ this time; but I do have this crystal zong zi.
They are Soft and chewy. Though mum put in quite an amount of lye water, I don’t feel they are strong with lye water and alkaline taste. These Crystal Zong Zi are best compatible with the handmade kaya by mum. The Kaya is thick with the egg yolks and strong aroma of fresh blended and concentrated pandan juice.
This year, mum is not going to make any ba chang. Firstly, dad and bro don’t like glutinous rice. Secondly, I am away. No one is going to finish her ba chang without me as the family’s DBKL. Next, youngest bro is on his orthodontic braces where he is prohibited from taking chewy food. And finally, mum said making ba chang requires lots of hard work in processing from the raw material to the final product. Well, she has promised to make the Nyonya Zong Zi
Happy Celebration! ~

I have not been up on blogging for quite a long time. Guess I have missed out a lot of stuff.
Firstly, have to wish WeiZhi a happy belated birthday. Secondly, gonna spare a little time to catch up with my favourite blogs! Ahh… too much reading to do~ anyhow, blog reading is always much much better than studying!
I am a little fed up with the swallowing-lecture-notes-and-books-and-vomiting-out-words-in-the-test-type of day and life. Although I have this ‘guilty’ feeling (due to the test in Fri and 2 more reports to be finished by Wed), I still want to spend a little time in blog-updating.
I always wished to try out the food in Canton-i
after reading the reviews from other food blog. Finally, I have made myself there with WenChing from Sugar Bean
months ago (hmmm, yeah, another dated post) for our dinner.
Canton-i which is owned by Dragon-I, has become the famous Chinese food chain around Klang Valley. This restaurant can definitely attract people for revisit with the elegant looking and modern oriental interior.
