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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
