At Foh San, Ipoh For A Bite

I think it has been more than a year or two since I last went to Foh San Dim Sum in Ipoh.  Being a local, I don't really go there, I prefer other "Dim Sum" shops than the popular ones.  Having said that, we went there one fine Sunday, joining in the crowd.... all for the love-sake for my girl. :)
 The ground floor was crowded.... and we came up... 
just nice timing to see one small table for the three of us....
Having sat down, my girl took the card and went to get the food..
Yes, it is self serviced except for some special selection...
She brought back a few items...
All her favourite food... actually....
 Steamed Chee Cheong Fun on the outside but crispy fillings on the inside....
 Some sweet desserts....
 Ma Lai Koh...
 Char Siew Poh and Sang Yuk Pau... (All meaty dumplings)
Part of the food we ordered...
After that, my turn to take my glutinous chicken rice and fish balls....
After this meal, I think I will refrain from Dim Sum for at least one month  :)

  1. I think I've seen mummy bloggers posting on Foh San dimsum.. Yes, it's crowded, you'd be lucky to get a place.. Hmm, mention about dimsum only, I must have a few things, here goes: siew mai, fried fish balls (read: fried, and not normal steamed "yue mai"), sui kow or prawn dumplings with mayonaise dip, woo-kok, char siew pau, fried carrot cake (chau lobak koh) and lastly, egg tarts.. Ooohh, and a bowl of hamtan-peitan-housi-sauyoke porridge, kekekeke..

  2. I like foh san actually, not because of absolute taste but the myriad choices available, smaller dim sum eateries are unable to provide many types of dainty dim sum dishes :D

    1. But I think the things there are a bit overpriced.. anyway, once awhile, it is good to taste different varieties from different dim sum shops...

  5. I love this shop and I think they have the best Egg Tarts that could beat TongKei chain in KL...
    Ipoh has few really excellent Dim Sum shops that could be at par with Hong Kong too!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
