It was time for lunch and I was at Pavilion meeting up with Sunny, decided to have Dim Sum. I still recalled my friend, Shirley who had been telling me so much about the delicious Dim Sum at Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel.

This Dim Sum really surprised me indeed and you may ask why? I got to confess that whenever I ordered my Dim Sum, I will never do without “Siew Mai” (Pork Dumplings). As Tai Zi Heen is halal, and to indulge a “Siew Mai” can be unimageable but I was totally wrong. . . . I ordered steamed chicken and shrimp dumpling with fresh scallop and black pepper “Siew Mai” was truely a heaven. It was very moist, tasty and you can bite into the crunchiness of the shrimps . . . I can defintely imagine my day.

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!
