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.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
