Authentic Food At Pin Sum, Menglembu

ANDY TOLD ME THAT HE WANTED TO TRY ALL FOOD IN IPOH... especially those I posted up in my previous posts.  LOL.... Great, try eating all within ONE week, I said..  LOL...  And so from Day One till today, we have been eating outside food.  Unhealthy and fattening though, but never mind, once back to Johor, we "try" to eat healthy again, homecooked food and baby oats will be our meals.  *hearsay first*

This morning we started out at around 10.30am and we went to old town to visit Concubine street.  My sons have never been there, we thought the tourists would be gone by now but we were wrong.  The whole area leading to the tourist spots were jammed up and we had no choice but to detour to somewhere out from Ipoh town.  We went all the way to Jelapang for noodles but the shop was closed.  We took a big round again and landed in Pin Sum restaurant in Menglembu.  It was a good choice after all.... everyone was happy with the food here especially Andy!
While waiting for the main course to be served, we had these as appetizers....

The famous noodles in this shop called Sam Si Mee... 
*three ingredients* mainly from dried oyster, mushrooms and dried cuttlefish.... 
We also ordered flat noodles in egg gravy... 
Also known as Wat Tan Hor...
Some side dishes to go with the noodles....
Six bacon wraps.... 
Our first meal of the day.... 

Someone is taking the pictures to "lure" somebody down south.... 
Definitely a Thumbs UP from both of them!


  1. Everything looks so good especially the roasted oink2 and the bacon wrapped thingy :)

    1. hahaha... yes, oink oink is always attractive...

  2. I like the char siew and the bacon wraps looks good!

  3. Oh mine look at the char siew and roast pork, the char siew is literally glittering

  4. This looks amazing and delicious!!! The soup looks like egg drop soup,only better. Is that pork? So good looking. Now I must go eat something! But it will not compare to this!

    1. Yes, it is pork... hope you get something equally as good...

  5. More a treat for Aaron than Andy, I'm sure - he can get such stuff in Johor...but going out to eat on one's own ain't much of course, some things are not as nice as the ones at Sibu kampua and kompia. Hehehehehe!!!!

    1. Yes, as long as they enjoy, anywhere is good! hahaaa...

  6. All the food look really tempting, especially the bacon wraps. That would delight any fan of oink oink.

  7. Yummy food! I like to eat a bit of each, lol! Both Aaron and Andy are looking so happy in the photo.

  8. Love all the food esp the noodles.

  9. I will go for the char siew and the roast meat...

  10. Looks yummy! But I actually wanted something light now, been eating too much 'dai yu dai yok' lately, hoho!

  11. I like to walk around that Concubine Street area. It is very lively and happening. When I was a kid, my Tai Koo told me that place was better known as a hangout for concubines!
    I would love to eat that bacon wraps and Wat Tan Hor. You really know where all the delicious food are sold

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


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…
