Famous Pan Mee In Chung Wah, Ipoh Jaya

No home cooking food last night, we went out for a simple dinner in Chung Wah open air restaurant in Ipoh Jaya.  My friends told me that the place here is famous for their Pan Mee, Cheap and Nice, that's what they used to say.. only setback is our patience.  We must be prepared to wait at least twenty minutes or so, depending on the days and the time.

Yesterday was a Wednesday, we waited around twenty minutes or so, I didn't really time it... anyway, I was not too hungry myself so I wouldn't mind waiting longer than that. :)  But one is too hungry, we can always order some fried chicken or fried noodles as a starter.... hahaha...
Simple open air restaurant...
Here is the stall that sells Pan Mee
We wanted to try the Soupy and the Dry type...
For soup, we ordered the flat noodles... (choe meen)
For dry, we ordered the finer type of noodles... (yau meen)
Don't be misled by the above picture...
The portion of the noodles are actually very BIG...
I couldn't finish one plate by myself... 
It comes with a bowl of soup with some greens and fish balls...
Beneath the noodles are the black sauce and the "lard" oil... 
that makes the noodles tasty, right?
I like their crispy fried anchoives.. but not the fish balls.. I can go without that...
As for the greens, they are "Sabah shu chai choy"... (something like cangkuk manis)
Overall, the Pan Mee here is worth trying out...
Especially their dry version...
Their noodles are kind of special in a way...
Pricing :  RM3.80 only!


Restaurant Chung Wah,
Selasar Rokam 11, 
Taman Ipoh Jaya, 
31350 Ipoh, Perak, Ipoh.

  1. The dry version looks different from ours, dark soya sauce will be added for more dry pan mee in Penang, i think i'll like ipoh's version

  2. Cheap & nice,worth waiting. Portion is huge.For the greens, they didn't tear it, like how we tear the cangkul manis before frying.

  3. orh, so it's kind of like hawker center with many stalls in the compound?? like that okay lah, while waiting can order and eat other food from other stalls.. if only the pan mee and have to wait only the pan mee, then probably i won't be willing to do that, haha!!

    oh, different from the KL pan mee which uses minced meat.. i actually prefer the meat slices than the minced meat also lah.. very clear soup, and a little starchy i can see, which is the way i like~~ and more like is the price, RM3.80 for a big portion!! so cheap.. that's KL price but 10 years ago~~

  12. I remember the first time I had soupy pan mee was in Singapore in 1998 when my aunt hand-made and cook for me!! I missed her pan mee.

    I prefer the clear soup pan mee than the dry soy sauce one. Usually the one over here they put soy sauce with a bowl of soup.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
