Ipoh-Penang-Taiping1-Foh-San

This is the 3rd documented trip to North Malaysia, do check out other 2 posts below for more eating places:

Ipoh 2 days 1 night trip

3 days trip to Penang and Ipoh

First stop, dim sum in Foh San, above is yam cake

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping2-Foh-San

Other dim sum, notable is their porridge which is very nice and made with drumstick meat instead of chicken shreds

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping3-TanjungTualang

Second stop, we made a slight detour (in the direction of KL) to go to Tanjung Tualang for their famous steam fresh water prawn

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping4-TanjungTualang

Yew Kei, supposedly restaurant locals prefer among many other restaurant in the area selling the same famous steam prawns

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping5-TanjungTualang

tanks & tanks of prawns

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping6-TanjungTualang-600gm-for-RM42

I think the above is RM40 for 600gm, medium small size, find it is just so so, the taste a bit funny, maybe  they should put more rice wine to cover the strong seafood smell…

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping7-TanjungTualang

Over the deepavali weekend…

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping8-Kuala-Sepetang-Portweld

Next stop, Kedai Makanana Tepi Sungai in Portweld/Kuala Sepetang

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping9-Kuala-Sepetang-Portweld

Big prawn in the restaurant ‘aquarium)

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping10-Kuala-Sepetang-Portweld

Very fresh prompret, yummy! RM14 for a small one

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping12-Kuala-Sepetang-Portweld

Steamed flower crab, RM18

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping13-Kuala-Sepetang-Portweld

Bill

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping14-Gee-Seng

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping16-Gee-Seng

Baked crab with roe, very fresh & yummy and only RM33!

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping17-Gee-Seng

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping18-Paramount-Hotel

Arriving our hotel in Penang – Paramount Hotel, only RM90 nett for twin-sharing room, situated next to the City while at the same time very near to City Centre, parking lot available. Just have to bear with that this is very old colonial style hotel with minimal amenities: no TV & fridge in room, simple toast and jam for breakfast upon request, WIFI is already in the room, but slow and keep on getting disconnected, only one electric socket for charging in the room

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping19-Paramount-Hotel

This hotel housed a famous restaurant called Ocean Green

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping20-Paramount-Hotel

Very old style colonial building, above is their side entrance.

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping21-Paramount-Hotel

toilet

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping31-Bangkok-Lane-Mee-Goreng

Breakfast in famous Bangkok Lane mee goreng, this Indian uncle speak perfect Penang style hokkien

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping32-Bangkok-Lane-Mee-Goreng

Piping hot even though it is tapao, packed with dried squid etc, slightly sweet, i would prefer it to be more savoury

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping33-AhLeng-CKT

Second stop: Famous Ah Leng Char Kuey Tiaw in Khoon Hiang kopitiam. They closed on Thursdays and supposedly also days when they can’t source good prawns.

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping34-AhLeng-CKT

We waited around 40 minutes for this, the best CKT out of the 4 we had, they use duck egg which is creamy and added in the last stage of cooking, making it creamy and just cooked with soft texture. Yummy! must try

The above is their CKT special(with mantis prawn) + duck egg priced at RM11 Expensive but really nice

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping35

Hokkien mee (prawn mee) with Vits noodle in the same coffeeshop is ok

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping36-Apom-Guan

Yi Garden Coffeeshop located near Lorong Selamat sister CKT

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping42-Yi-Garden

Wanton with prawn+pork mince is quite nice

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping43-Yi-Garden

Venison pan mee is offputting, the strong smell of the venison is just not compatible

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping44-SiamRoadCKT

Siam Road CKT

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping45-SiamRoadCKT

Not bad, although not memorable

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping46-PulauTikus-BeeHooi

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping57-Selama-Lam-Khie

Braised terapin is forgettable, we wanted another soup style but was told it has to be pre-ordered due to long cooking hour, RM20, forgetable

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping58-Selama-Lam-Khie

Steamed frog, RM25 with strong herbal taste

Ipoh-Penang-Taiping59-Selama-Lam-Khie
