2 Days 1 Night trip from KL->Ipoh->KL. Fook Seng in Slim River, it is about a little over an hour drive from KL on the way to Ipoh.


They don’t have live bull frog on that day, so we settle for steamed river prawn and claypot garoupa fish(sek3 ban1) below. Above one prawn is about RM24 (RM60-80/kg)


Claypot fish, around RM17. Food taste quite nice, but the price is not any cheaper than KL.


FairPark Hotel, a cheap budget stay, 2 single bed for only RM99 nett(breakfast included), free Astro and WIFI in room.


Fair Park Hotel lobby, clean and simple


Our room, gotta ask for a better room next time, this room opens up to a wall and dozens of air-con, so we can’t open the window for fresh air :\


clean toilet


First stop: Sin Yoon Loong & Sun Yuan Foong coffee shop, similar name shop just next to each other. I am not a coffee lover, but have sips of both ice coffee just for tasting anyway. Sin Yoon Loong(to the left) is slightly too sweet and less bitter coffee taste, whereas Sun Yuan Foong(to the right) has just the right sweetness and more bitter coffee taste. From blogsphere, seems like Sin Yoon Loong(to the left) is the more famous one


Kedai Makanan Rasa Lain, famous for their claypot tanghoon(glass noodle), big fish ball etc


RM1 each fish ball, bouncy and fresh


Claypot Crab, RM55(RM65/kg), enough for 2 person, very nice, yummm~


The crab is really fresh and meaty, drench in soup peppered with szechuan peppercorn


Fresh fruit shaved ice in Dessert street(tong2 shui2 gai1), Ipoh is my favourite, can’t find such in KL, stall 27 this time unlike previous time is stall 22. They have few stalls selling the same mix fruits ice, all pretty identical.


only RM4.50, yummy with mango, jackfruit, dragonfruit, pear, lychee, raisin, grapes, biji selasih etc




Fair Park Hotel serving simple breakfast of nasi lemak and fried kuey tiaw, their nasi lemak is quite nice


Foh San


so grand


Dim Sum, just standard, still missing the yummy Tuck Kee dim sum in Kepong


fluffy Char Siew Pau

2 famous chicken hor fun stall side by side: Thean Chun(to the left, open for business about 9 am) and Kong Heng which open for business earlier, around 8:30am


Chicken hor fun stall in Kong Heng


~RM4, hor fun(rice noodle) is very smooth and almost like chee cheong fun(as the noodle is quite broad), but i find the soup is not served hot enough.


Popiah stall in Kong Heng


Old Grandma making the popiah


very nice, i asked for little spicy, and it pack a definite hint of chili, very nice, ~RM2


Thean Chun hor fun, touted the best hor fun in the area, gotta try it and see


Chicken hor fun ~RM4, very nice, piping hot, definitely one of the must eat in Ipoh :P. The noodle is from Jelapang, taste quite similar to those of Old Town coffee chain, but this is very good


Ching Han Guan Biscuit, their signature pastries include meat floss lotus biscuit, walnut candy etc. Be sure to book one day ahead so that you can collect the next day morning around 9am when they open. Else, you have to wait till 1pm for their fresh batch of pastry to come out of the oven.


Making their lotus paste meat floss pastry


Meat Floss Lotus Paste Biscuit(RM15.60) and meat floss lotus paste biscuit with salted egg cost RM21


Don’t find it as nice as before, wish they put in more lotus paste instead of me tasting more of the pastry skin with little lotus paste


Lai Kee soy bean it is since funny mountain soya bean shop is closed on Tuesdays. Can’t beat funny mountain ones.
