Cheap Dim Sum In Kum Loong Taiping

It was only around 10am when we reached Kum Loong Food Shop (direct translation) from the photo here.....
It is actually a double shop lot selling dim sum only... when we were seated, we were told that most of the dim sum were sold out already, the waitress told us that not many choices were left....  I was really astonished...
no wonder the lady was sweeping the floor already...
(Can you see the customer putting up her legs?)
hahahaa.....
 I notice that the shop is more for "elderly people" like me...  lol...
Anyway, we sat there.... and see what they had to offer...
my friend and I didnt take much...
Just ordered a "Tai Pau" (Big dumpling)
some steamed dumplings and fish balls...
2 plates of steamed pork ribs
plus one plate of chicken with vegetables (not shown here)
We were recommended to eat this... 
Oh, I forgot the name but it seems they only do this once a week..
It was very large actually...
something like "sang yuk" pau..
with minced meat and a piece of egg as fillings..
 since I never seen this in Ipoh before, we ordered one and try...
It was not bad... neither it was very good...  hahahaa...
Well, nothing much to shout about in this shop...
but I do notice that many people came by to take away 
rather than sitting here to eat....
maybe because there is no air-con.....
Morning breakfast was a so-so...
I do not know their individual prices...
and the price including the above came to 
only RM17...something... 
So Cheap!!

  4. You must have gone there yesterday cos the kai woh pau (the one which you can't tell its name) is only available on Sundays. Coincidentally, I bought the same pau yesterday but I went there much earlier, around 7 a.m. The kai woh pau is sold at RM6 to RM7 in Sri Petaling so this one is really cheap. Kum Loong sells the usual stuff every day namely loh mai kai, paus, morsels etc. At 5 p.m. daily, chicken pie (kai soh), siew pau and kaya kok will be delivered fresh from the kitchen. Egg tart, chin tui and nam yue sou (fermented beancurd puff) are sold on Sunday morning only (usually sold out by 7.30 a.m.)

  7. Claire, Kum Loong dim sum is very famous during the olden days...My grandfather like to go there yum char. For me, their dim sum is so so only. We usually da pao their famous "Tai Pao". Kum Loong have great tea time snack like kaya puff and also kai sou = bbq pork pie with crumble on top. If you come here next time, I can reserved for you in advance first.

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…
