Food Discovery In Old Town, Ipoh

MY SISTER TOLD ME THAT THERE IS A SHOP IN OLD TOWN where they served good authentic food but no one really promotes this shop anywhere in the social media as yet.  LOL...  She told me that no one would bat an eye on this shop, normally people will just drove pass without realizing that it is a shop which serves authentic food such as fried noodles, dishes with rice and other "sidekicks" as well....

Since there were only two of us, we did not order much.... firstly, we wanted to diet a bit... ahemmm.. and secondly, we did not really know what to order.... the menu was written in Chinese and what I did was to take a "peek" at what other patrons were eating and cracking my head to remember what my sister had recommended months ago!


I saw one customer eating this so I pointed and ordered this....
Braised noodles with these ingredients.... never took this anywhere else before... 
This is called Kwai Far meen... not too bad too... 
And I love these dumplings in soup.... 
They were different from where I have eaten before.... 
And now for the shop.... it is called Sin Chuan Heong Hup Kee....
It doesn't look appealing at all, right?  
After all these years staying in Ipoh and passing through old town, 
I did not know this is a coffeeshop from outside... 
The shop is just opposite those carpet shops and textile, right after the old town bridge... 
Along Jalan Tun Sambanthan.... 
Now I know... next time I must bring my foodie "kakis" here!

  3. Thanks for sharing about this place. Next time I go Ipoh I will go here. The braised noodles look like yee mee. They put deep fried dumplings into the soup so they are no longer crunchy/crispy I guess.

  5. All of this food really looks awesome! They must take the money they have not spent on advertising, and buy super fresh food. So was it crowded? Word will get around fast!

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...
