Retired Foodie Explorers To Jeram Lui Char

"OK, LEAVING FOR DIPANG AT 10AM TOMORROW MORNING!" And that was my last night's message to my foodie friends....  and this morning I got up refreshed and ready to start off the journey to a new place. True to their word, they came punctually and off we went for another new place we have yet to explore.  However it is not Kuala Dipang we were going to but Jeram....

Jeram?  Oh, this is the first time I have heard of Jeram eventhough I have passed it by numerous times.  I must be oblivious of the signboard leading to Jeram.... It is a small town between Gopeng and Kampar... and the journey from Ipoh to Jeram took around half hour.... *lady's speed*

Thanks to my foodies friends....
Their Geography is definitely Better than mine!
And they even took the trouble to google what their special food is over here... 
The place we stopped and parked... 
Diagonally facing this Pasaraya May....
Some houses just opposite the indoor market where we parked...
It was almost 11am when we reached... some stalls are closed..
And the one we were looking for.... pheww... thank goodness it is still opened!
Here is the name of the stall... 
And of course, my friend did the "ordering"..... 

And this was what we got..... 
Not one bowl... but TWO!
Our Lui Char... 
Consists of various greens, peanuts, dried shrimps among other toppings.... 
Not sure what they really are... but when they are mixed and mixed.... 
                                        Their taste turned out different from our Ipoh's ones.... 
As if those two bowls are not enough, my friend ordered this..... 
Wahhhhh... I really wanted to hug her!
Something really "ching" and clear.... so suitable for us retirees... 
Consisting of bitter gourd, salted vegetables, tomatoes and some beancurd skin.... 
Nothing can be more simple and yet tastefully perfect to my buds!
For these orders, the total came to RM13.50... 
Isn't that GREAT! 
"Retired" Foodie Explorers... I call ourselves!
After our breakfast cum lunch, we explored further in... 
Another place to "tested" for our next trip.... 
At the end of the road stands a Chinese School... 
before we made a detour and drove out of Jeram...
Well, that was not all...
We continued on another fifteen minutes drive to Kampar!


  1. Hakja lui cha! Originally you mix everything and add the soup into the bowl and eat. But most people now prefer to slurp the soup and have it seperately as some could not stand the bitterness.

    Nice photo of the retired foodie explorers. I wish I have someone to go food hunting with me too. Haha.

    1. It is not bitter at all.. only leafy taste but I like the mint taste, so it is fine with me... I normally eat it dry .. and slurp down one or two tablespoon after that.. hahahaa..

  2. I don't fancy lui cha, I always feel macam the green soup got "greeny" smell.. I like your bowl of lou shi fun though, must be very flavourful the soup coz got harm choy..

    1. hahhaah..Yes, I agree not many like... eat is once awhile it is fine...

  3. I don't quite like lui cha maybe because of the overwhelming green taste to me, but this one comes with dried shrimps and I think the green taste becomes milder?? anyway, I will go for the soup noodles, bitter gourd and salted veggie and fuchuk, nice!!! :)

    1. Yes, it is milder and more clear taste... I like the combination of their style..

  4. No, thank liu char for me. :D

    1. I thought we oldies like it.. hehehe..maybe you are not in the oldies group.. hehee

  5. I like the look of lui cha, I mean the "liew" but I am not sure if I will like the green soup. The other soup looks great. I would be happy having a bowl all to myself hah..hah...

    1. This green soup is a bit dilute compared to the ipoh style.. so it is fine with me.. not so strong..

  6. I never tried lui cha before, as i know i won't like it... No, no thank you...

  7. I miss lei cha so much!! I love this dish since last time.

    1. You are one of the young people who like this.. :)

  8. It is good to explore the places around us through our foodie hunts.

  9. I like to eat lei cha. I wonder whether the lei cha taste the same as those in KL.

  10. Lui cha, a very healthy dish but unfortunately am not really a fan of it. If I am not wrong, it's a Hakka dish. Hey, is that my dear friend (6 pix) standing there all the way, hahaha...???...The happy retired foodies explorer.

    1. Yes, hakka dish... and yes, it is she.. hahahaa..

  11. One of my favourite food for the weekend... for detox:D!!!

  12. I always felt good whenever I ate Lui Char as it contains all the greens. I noticed your ingredients and green soup looks different from KL ones. Ours so green like lalang and moss in the water! Lol

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
