Family Day Trip to Ipoh - Sungkai (Part 1)

>> Tuesday, September 21, 2010

One of the best things is to drive along the highway with the sun greeting you "Good morning"

Up north - Ipoh, here we come!

The thick fog/midst that morning was such a mysterious view...

Our first stop was at the Foh San Dim Sum Restaurant

Where you'll find piping hot "char siew pau", with char siew oozing out of the pau...

This was recommended by my friend, Fungi...the "Nam Yue Pau"

That comes with an EXTRA FATTENING slice of pork belly!!
it's terribly high in cholesterol, but oh, so delicious!

We thought Foh San's dim sum are awesome, but they're moderately good only....

Thank goodness the prawns are still quite fresh

This dish is my sister's favourite, but it was not terrific here at Foh San....

Nevertheless, it's still worth eating for the price you pay

Foh San's steamed fishballs are commendable; smooth & slightly chewy (not entirely soft & "floury")

The steamed fishballs are better than the fried ones somehow...but I guess it's individual preference

You don't need to bother ordering their "kao zhi" as this dumpling's skin is so thick & unappetizing

My dad wasn't very satisfied, so he ordered a "loh mai kai" in hopes to satisfy his cravings,  
but it didn't do much of a trick...he said you can find better ones in PJ, minus the waiting for a table & to be served

At the end of the meal, it's always good to be thankful & to keep the cheer :)

Even when you didn't quite like the food, the packed surroundings, & the noise...

After filling the stomach, it was time to shop for "souvenirs" around the Foh San square...

The "aunty" was a natural when it comes to a wok filled with coarse salt for the salted baked chicken...

The "food blogger" is as usual excited over every little finding that concerns food...

While the youth who loves camwhoring gives endless animated expressions!

One of the best salted baked chickens can be found here...RM17.00/bird
We ended up buying 7 chickens for our family & friends...hahaha...

Queue up for the famous "kaya puffs" from Sin Eng Heong... for RM0.70/piece

You'll find more than just "kaya puffs" - there are even cute shaped biscuits for kids :)

Each tray gets snapped up so quickly...at times, 1 customer takes the whole tray or more!!

After standing in line for half an hour, I got my "kaya puffs"!! 3 boxes of it :D

Delicious puffs for tea-time :) (best eaten warm)
