Food to eat in Ipoh.

After leaving the Lost World of Tambun in the evening, we were all extremely hungry. Not sure what we wanted to have so we just drove around the town to survey. Decided to have our dinner at this Vnam Kitchen Restaurant.

What we ordred were almost the same; pork or chicken chop rice. Their pork chop tastes surprisingly good!! 😯
My ‘halal sister’ ordered fish, egg and chicken instead. (she dislikes pork, she claims that it has a kind of weird taste).

The side order, crispy popiah. I like its filling because it’s full of vegetables.

72
Later at the night, my sister’s boyfriend offered to treat all of us ice-creams as my birthday’s gift. So we went to this Crazy Ice-cream & Salad House. They serve western food as well as salad and ice-creams. We tried on the 3 scoops ice-cream placed on a half-cut watermelon.

76
The next morning, we woke up on time for our complimentary breakfast at Jose & Deli Eatery. This restaurant is located in the same building with our hotel, just a level above the lobby. I guess it’s because the hotel has limited space to have a kitchen.

85
For lunch, we decided to try out Foh San Dim Sum. This restaurant is famous but their food tastes so-so. Not exactly sure why it was full house but i suggested you to try other place, try asking the locals maybe.

My favourite one, the Funny Mountain Soya Bean! Their ‘tau fu fah’ is extremely smooth if compared to the ones in KL. The best thing is they have drive thru service available.

Lost World of Tambun

My birthday falls on a friday this year and i went to work like normal. However, i had a short escape to Ipoh during the weekend (:

04
Had McDonald’s for breakfast before we started our journey. Tried out the new chicken roll breakie wrap and it’s good! Love its combination of scramble egg and melting cheese. But the size of the wrap is much smaller than how it appears in the TV / poster.

11
Booked for a 2D1N room at French Hotel through booking.com.

A place called Kepura Cave where you can rent it to for conference, seminar or dining. The temperature here is very cooling since it’s a natural cave.

A dulang tea house where you can sit down and have a break. They sell kopi kampung, telur ayam kampung, roti bakar, biscuits, roasted rice tea, etc. Spot an uncle wearing like a tin valley worker walking around the place to introduce about tin valley.

See the tall & thin mountain standing solo there? I wonder whether it grows naturally that way? 😯
