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!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
