Old Town Nam Chau Dry Curry Mee

7 08 2008

Old Town, Nam Chau. Been introduced to this place by my friend from Ipoh (the shop’s closed on Sat though). Famous for its dry curry noodle, and various toasts/sandwiches, as well as their coffee, it opened up another branch in Bandar Baru Menglembu lately.

The dry curry noodle (I normally pick rice noodle or kuey teow) (RM3.50) comes with chicken strips, char siew and prawns, and generously served with amazing curry paste. Though some may find it oily, but squeeze in half a lime, and the taste is simply amazing! Yummy


54 Jalan Bandar Timah, Ipoh

Opening Hours: 8am to 4pm, Closed on Saturdays

Pun Chun Wantan Mee and Duck Mee

8 07 2008

On the way to KL and we stop by to Bidor Pun Chun to taste the famous duck noodles as well as the wan tan mee. Em.. let see wat can I say bout the food dere.. em.. is no doubt the shop is real famous and packed with people even though we reach there at bout 3 pm .. oh gosh.. we are lucky to get a place. So, we ordered the food there and the service is not really good.. em.. I consider them a bit rude.. maybe too much business and under control kua..

I ordered wan tan mee and rest ordered duck noodles.. so, total we ordered 2 plates of wan tan mee and 4 bowls of duck noodles.. waiting time is still ok.. boot 10 minutes..consider ok lo.. not tat slow as I expected.

The wan tan meeā€¦ er.. the taste not as delighting as I expected.. and the wantan is also not as tasty that much as well. The price is RM 4 per plate. Em, comparable the mee is not really nice.. and for me is very salty.. since I don take much salt. Em.. futhermore de wan tan like not much ingridients as well. .. haiz.. and charge me so much.. like not worth lo..

The duck meat mee is abit weird.. my expectation is wantan mee style.. but ended up with this one herbal duck noodles.. Em.. the duck is overcook where the meat is a bit stiff di,, em.. the soup is full with herbal taste and the noodles are wan tan noodles. Oh ya, they give you the whole L-shape drum stick.. em.. if you love the herbal taste you can have a try.. if no don wan lo. The price is RM 6 per bowl

And I ordered teh famous Ipoh Coffee.. em.. de taste is a bit bitter.. is nice.

Taste: 3/5

Bidor Pun Chun Kai Zai Peng (Pun Chun Chicken Biscuits)

8 07 2008

There is two types of Kai chai Peng.. one is more slices and one is a bit big one.. and the one I prefer is the bigger one.. not so crunchy. It is from Pun Chun Kai Chai Peng.. It is now can be found not only in Bidor it self but you can get them in many stores and malls. I spotted them in some malls in Penang like Gurney Plaza as well as Sunshine Square . This one is the packing and the taste is nicer where you can taste the inside of the Kai Chai Peng and as well as the fillings.. It is selling at RM3.40 per pack

Taste: 4/5

Price: RM3.40

A very special Popiah from Thean Chun Coffee shop. This is where this yummy popiah.. is a very special and teh taste is different from Penang. What is so different is the popiah fills is a lot and they add something like small prawns inside which make the taste very special.

Thean Chun Cafe is the next stop in Ipoh, Junee and John took me to this shop.. it is said to be famous for the hor fan as well as for the popiah.. em.. so we went here. .. Thean Chun coffee shop at the town of Ipoh. I have no idea how to go along to this shop. Perhaps u can try and ask fr route to there.

Wat we ordered.. i ordered Cha Tan which is different from Penang.. which the soup is leong cha ..not the herbal cha tan which is in Penang and the taste is also completely different. So, wont be the same as in Penang.

I also get a try on the hor fan and the hor fan is totally different from Penang.. it is where the hor fan which is soft as well as the food is nice and special.. Other than that, the taste is a bit different .. from Penang and very special.. They don give big drumstick or duck meat but they have little slices of chicken meat additional with bean sprouts which is very nice
