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!

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
