The Deck at Weil Hotel Ipoh

During my stay at Weil Hotel Ipoh this year, I attended a dinner at The Deck situated at the rooftop of the hotel. The food presented that night was the creation of Chef Sam Lau and his team and I truly enjoyed the dish creations. Chef’s cooking had an English influence which got me inspired to dive in for more.

Restaurant Teo Chiew Ipoh

A drive from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh is not a difficult task, head to the North South highway and within 2.5hours you will land yourself in Ipoh. I did this yesterday and head right away to this place called Restaurant Teo Chiew at Maxwell Road not far away from Kuala Kangsar Road and meet up with Mr Lim the owner himself. I was so lucky. Great innovative man himself, carrying an abundance of food experience while his wife heads the kitchen over nearly 20years. The two is definitely the Bonnie and Clyde of the food. Having to hear of his eating around story I was amazed. I am definitely his new crusader!

656 PORRIDGE Bercham Ipoh

Porridge

I found something I like in Ipoh, it was this bowl of awesome goodness porridge. It was so refinely boiled with such a consistant texture and thickness. I guess two most important to acquire a tasty porridge would be having a well brewed based broth and a good variety selection of rice grain. Brewing a good porridge may not be an easy task, some may sort to be perfectionist by having the right combination of rice grain as just to perfect it.

Johor Bahru Best Bak Kuh Teh at Soon Soon Huat Restaurant

SOON SOON HUAT

Danny said,

. . . . . actually J.B is not really famous for food like Ipoh or Penang where by 8 out of 10 outlets you walk in you get satisfaction. Other than the beef noodles, plus may be the orang asli sea food , just can’t think of others. Totally agreed with Chin on these type of vanishing food stuff. Especially in KL where you hardly even get a proper wan ton mee. . . . .

Uncle Sunny Wong’s Home Cooked Food | KL Best @ Off Jalan Ipoh

Having the time to track down anything that is delicious can be really exciting and be fruitful as the time spend is so worth while is like having a pot of gold in your hands. Two weeks ago CK and her hubby took a break from their hectic work and had visited Kuala Lumpur. During that few days we went food hunting with Ken and we end up at this little half concrete and half wooden house cum restaurant. My first sight of this eatery was not impressive at all due to the surface look but as you may read on, my views are totally changed . . . . . “never judge a place or a person by it’s cover”.

Hua Nam Coffeeshop, New Town , Ipoh

Hua Nam Coffeeshop in new town ipoh has been around for many years now and still churning lots of delicious hawker food. I am definately one who will never miss visiting this shop for my afternoon tea. I will always go for the “Law Mee” and always make sure the stall serve them in Penang style. “Law Mee” is noodle dish serve in a dark sauce and comes with topping such as shreeded chicken, sliced prawns, deep fried onions and some ‘sambal” chilli paste. It is nothing new as you can get this similat dish in Kuala Lumpur and even in Petaling jaya. So what make this particular dish so uniqe? Well, got to say I was introduce to this dish by my cousin Jennie, She taught me how to eat this dish and that makes the dish so unique and so delicious. This stall serve pickle crushed garlic. What you have to do is just add those pickled crushed garlic into your “Law Mee” noodle and mix them into the dish evenly. OMG! now you will be able to taste such a unique taste and flavour of this “Law Mee”. A must try if you are in Ipoh!


Another delicious noodle that you can enjoy at this coffeeshop is the Curry Noodle. So delicious and I hardly can describe thwem to you. I think you need to try yourself and from my pictures, they tell! …lol!






Rojak is also something that need to try here. What makes this rojak dish so delicious…of course is the rojak sauce. I also love the the prawn crackers serve on the rojak. So crunchy and so tasty when eaten with the rojak sauce. And those crushed peanuts toppings really adds the flavour of this rojak. This rojak is really something that i would crave for…… so to say, something to die for……………..lol! Same goes with their Sotong dish….you have a try and let me know later!



Hokkien “Har Mee” is also a winner here. A noodle dish that comes with slice pork and shrimps and comes with prawns soup. Lovely!
