Day trip to Ipoh (Food post)

Besides visiting those caves in Ipoh, we tried some of the recommended local food as well.

For breakfast, Kim brought us to Sin Yoon Loong, located at Jalan Bandar Timah. 

这次南下除了参观洞洞之外,我们也吃了不少美食。

There're people selling fruits, pasembor and local snacks just outside the shop
早餐来到了新源隆咖啡店,人潮满满哦!我们都站在桌子旁等。。。

Full house! We stood by the table and waited for about 5-10 minutes for the previous customers to go...

Ordered the famous hor fun (not bad, the kuey teow is very chewy)
点了它们著名的河粉,还不错,馃条很Q

Yong tau foo
酿豆腐

Siew yok and char siew, highly recommended!
必点的叉烧和烧肉

Kaya toast, thin and crunchy!
面包土司,好吃!只不过这时我们开始有点饱了。。。

Egg toast also taste nice!
鸡蛋土司也很不错!


Then we dropped by the drive-thru Funny Mountain soya bean shop, located at Jalan Theatre.
接着就驾车来到奇峰豆腐花店。

如果你像我们酱懒得找 parking,可以呆在车里等,工作人员会过来order和送上你点的东西。。很方便吧!=)

Queues are long! But we just waited in the car, the staff will come for ordering and bill, so convenient! 

Tapao 5 cups of tao foo fah and 3 big bottles of soya bean milk. The tao foo fah is really good, smooth but not too sweet. But the soya bean is just normal.
因为还很饱所以我打算打包。。它们的豆腐花真的好吃,又不会过甜,大爱!至于豆浆嘛,还可以啦~


As for lunch, we visited this restaurant, Thean Chun, located at Jalan Market.

来到了天津茶室用午餐咯。。。


Hor fun (again), and this one taste nicer compared to the one we had in the morning!
个人觉得这里的河粉比早上的好吃!

Pork and chicken satay, erm just mediocre to me~ Probably because they're not warm enough
沙爹,嘛嘛罢了。。可能是因为冷了的关系!

The star, caramel custard! Nice!!
不过它们的饨蛋却很好吃!!

Rojak, not bad...

Last but not least, popiah. Well, I can't say it's not good as I know different place offers different flavors and styles. Somehow I still prefer Taiping's popiah and rojak, hehe...
薄饼,是很大块啦不过味道不比太平的好吃。。嘻嘻~


After lunch we headed South again to Batu Gajah to visit Karen's home. Spent an hour plus there then off to Tg Tualang for dinner. We dined at Lung Seng restaurant 2 years ago, and this time we tried the food at Luen Fong restaurant.

离开怡保我们再南下去 Batu Gajah 友人Karen 的家,去看看她4个月大的宝宝。接着晚餐时间呢就出发到 Tg Tualang 的联芳餐厅!
友人们。。
可能是父亲节的关系餐厅已差不多满了!还好我们早已经预约了~

It was 6.30pm but the restaurant is almost full house, luckily we had made a reservation earlier.

Here're the food we had:
晚餐包括:

Ice jelly honey lime, or more commonly known as ai yu bing, 爱玉冰,a famous dessert from Taiwan. But here in Ipoh/Tualang, they called it wen tou lang (文头浪,man tao long in Cantonese). This is delivered from the shop opposite.

Satay squids, the sauce is very appetizing!
沙爹鱿鱼

Fried kangkung
炒空心菜

Fried oyster cake
蚝煎

Kam heong lala
甘香啦啦

Steamed prawns
清蒸虾

Fried prawns 
干煎虾

Steamed lam ko
清蒸南哥鱼

所有食物都很不错就除了那只鱼!不懂怎么了那酱汁都没味的!(难道厨师忘了放酱油之类的调味料?好可惜啦!>.<)

We were pretty satisfied with the dinner above because the seafood are fresh! But the only regrets is the fish, the sauce is somewhat tasteless! So wasted.......

Anyway, total bill for the dinner is RM 310, expensive or not, you judge yourself.....

We reached home about 9pm+ and I continued my duty as a mum. It was such a tiring day but we all had fun! Look forward to the coming gathering, and this time will bring along our kids perhaps!

这天虽然很累不过我相信大家都很 enjoy!我和老公难得可以两公婆出外拍拖,偶尔这样其实也是很开心的~ ^^
