Mooncake & Ipoh Pigi Recap

It’s almost that moon-admiring time of the year again :)

And BC’s Precious Black is a little over-rated I must say. Sold out almost everywhere. A bite and “OK-OK nia”. Yet to try the other flavors though namely blueberry cheese, tiramisu, chestnut japanese jingsa (don’t even know what’s that) and chocolate peanut.

LOL btw this phrase was also over-used during the Ipoh yat yat yau (one day tour).

Foh San Dim Sum? Not worth it if you had to be waiting for tables and pressuring ppl to leave their tables or a possible sitting war with the lady who insisted she was there first…Char Koay Kak thumbsdwn, Chee Cheong Fun thumbsdwn, Por Lor Pao thumbsdwn, Char Siew Pao thumbsdwn (rating from Pao King himself), Siew Mai, Loh Mai Kai etc etc, common and nothing special.

Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fah? Only served with sugar syrup. I usually have mine with gula melaka syrup. After the tau fu fah, the soya bean drink felt tasteless..

Nam Heong Kopi? The white kopi peng tasted like well kopi peng. Never been a fan of Old Town anyway.

Yong Tao Fu Under Tree? Dried Yong Tau Fu ie. all the items were deep-fried. Since all deep-fried items are delicious regardless :P this was the only one we felt were great. Cheap price helped too! However I find dipping it with laksa soup only without any other sauce a bit weird so I took mine dry. And the laksa, more hei-koh (black prawn paste) needed.

“OK-OK nia” :P

12 tots:

tango said... really went there like tourist. Went to all those 'touristy' places which I don't normally go except for the 'yong tao fu' under the tree. :P

Ipoh is famous of food for sure. Too bad, you did not have chance to try what the locals love.

Catherine said...

haha i dunno, i ikut saja..but ya dat tot did cross my mind, probably we were jst going to those tourist in pg, tourists flocked to gurney drive, etc.

Anyway some of the so called famous food in pg itself also overated one la and expensive too..same concept ler :P

tango said...

ya, agreed with you. That's why I never take for example the 'ji mui' char koay tiao. ;)

Catherine said...
