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!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
