We took off to Ipoh on Friday and the highway was of course a bumper to bumper and we ended up at Bidor Pun Chun Restaurant for lunch. It was packed with hungry people who were travelling up north also, and we waited like more than half an hour for a table. Met a friend and his family there too so we shared the table and he even paid for our lunch!! Now, the wait was somehow worth it!!
The food was of course not good due to overwhelming orders and we waited for another 45 minutes for the food! However, the texture of the noodles was still very good and so far we have not found this type of noodles anywhere else…After lunch we took off to Ipoh and joined in the crowded highway.
I chose the first exit which was the Simpang Pulai exit as I wanted to go to Gunung Rapat to get the famous Heong Peang (Ipoh biscuit) from the factory outlet. Trust me, tastes better than the ones you get in town! (more fresh!) After that was coffee at Sin Yoon Loong at Old Town but even the toast bread is sold out! Left only some butter cakes which was not to my liking of course! (Abuden? Amah’s mia butter cakes taste better than that ok!)
Then we checked in the hotel, as it was a long weekend, and we only made reservations like a week before, we had to settle with one that was not my first choice of course. It was Heritage Hotel, the sheets were grey and the pillows were smelly. Good thing I always bring my own pillow cases for double protection!
Dinner was at Yum Yum on Persiaran Greenhill, near Syuen Hotel. It serves really good Nyonya food. However, we were not quite satisfied and continued our journey to Ipoh Garden for the Ngar Choy (bean sprouts) Chicken Hor Fun but guess what? They sold out at 8.30pm!! What a spoiler!!!!
Morning was breakfast in the hotel, (as if I’m stupid enough to eat there! But it was provided, so I ate fruits la) and the kids suddenly loved cereal and attacked the counter like as if they’ve never had any cereal in their life! Breakfast of course continued at Kong Heng, Ipoh Old Town. We had the famous mouth watering hor fun (rice noodles) that I’ve blogged before and then on to Funny Mountain. It was only 10.15 am so they were only preparing to open for business. We walked over to Foh San to buy takeaway egg tarts/dim sum while waiting…yummy…
Look at that queue! The tau foo fah has not arrived ma..
Business hours – 10.30am till sold out! wakakakakaka..
