Makan-Makan di Ipoh, Re-Visited!

The first place we went that morning was Foh San Restaurant but it was so crowded that we lost the patience to wait and bought take away instead and ate in the car. The boyfriend had been in hunger for almost twenty turn o’ yer hourglass.


After we filled our empty stomach, we headed to Funny Mountain for its famous tau foo fah and soy milk.


It took them about ten seconds to serve you food when you had to queue for about five to ten shots ‘o rum.


So, I have a piece of advice for you here: drive through is definitely faster and more comfortable than joining the queue when you know how hot Ipoh can be.


Tau foo fah is a bit too sweet for me. Plus, I am not really a fan of tau foo fah but just for the sake of having it.


Whereas the soy milk is good. It is definitely better than those cheap soy milk you would find in some restaurants where the ratio of water to soy is 8:2, but other than that, there is nothing so special about this drink.


Next was Dai Shu Geok (Big Tree Foot) where the stall is under a huge tree. This place is famous for its yeung tau foo.


Frankly speaking, I know naught about yong tau foo so, I would not know how great this is compared to the ones that I can get anywhere in Kay Ell. However, you should have its mixed fruit juice blended. It is really good.


The boyfriend ordered this seafood noodles which I found the taste really weird. Not sure if I was super loaded with food that I felt sick when seeing it.


Also the rojak was not good so, do not get it.


Finally the yong tau foo. Seriously, I cannot tell the difference. They are all the same to me.


After forcefully finished at least most of the food above, we went to Sin Eng Heong for its famous mini kaya puff. It seems I had to queue everywhere in Ipoh.


I mean if you queued to get five to ten or more boxes of mini kaya puff then it is definitely worth it. However, I queued for maybe half an hour to get a box of mini kaya puff. “The sex better be great,” I told myself. Not literally. I mean the kaya puff sure as hell better make the queue worth to join for and fortunately, it does.


We later headed to Sin Yuan Loong to meet May and Jhoong. I wanted to go there during my last visit in Ipoh but it was already closed when we reached there. It is usually closed on Sundays.


We also tried its caramel egg custard. According to May, the ones in Tian Chun are too sweet for her. The ones here are alright but nothing special about it.


Jhoong later brought us to Stadium Food Court to have jelly ice before we ended our FoodVenture Race in Ee Poh and started our journey to Pee Nang. The trip this time was definitely better than the previous one. We had so much food that our stomach could not handle us. Definitely had loads of fun too and it was all because I have the perfect travel companion with me.
