Oh yes it is located at Teluk Intan, Perak which is about 4-5 hours drive along the coastal way from the city, Penang. Sin Joo Heong Biscuit Factory is famous for their Fragrant Biscuit ‘Heong Peng’. This fragrant biscuit consists of layered pastry and sweet caramel fillings . . . it is so gorgeous


Teluk Intan Rojak

Rojak Ah Chai is a modest rojak stall smacked in front of some wooden shacks right next to the wet market and opposite San Min school. If you are coming from the direction heading towards the wet market, the rojak stall comes right after it. While there is no McD drive thru in Teluk Intan.

It is totally different from Penang Rojak I took mosli.. cause it have the kickass combination of alkaline treated squid and crunchy prawn crackers, fondly known as yau yee har peng.. Thats de differrnt..and its real yummy

Hope have a chance to go dere n try again

Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun

16 03 2008

Since on holiday, been traveling all this while and ended up in Teluk Intan.Chee cheong fun is quite a staple diet to me. I have never realized that there are different chee cheong funs out there that taste so different from those I always had.

The two most popular types or variation of chee cheong fun sold in my hometown are these two:

-Chee cheong fun with “liao” with fillings consist of fried dried shrimps (hebii) and sengkuang (turnip is that you?) with sauce and spices.
-Chee cheong fun with crunchy fried dried shrimps fillings garnished with chopped spring onions.
Both types are fairly popular, with the first variation served with pickled green chilies widely known as what outsiders called the “Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun”. Both variations of chee cheong fun is good enough to eat on its own, although taste-wise, the former is more flavourful, whereas the latter is blander.
While I prefer to eat them on its own, different folks have different styles of eating chee cheong fun. Some like to eat their chee cheong fun drizzled with sauce and gravy. Some of the more popular sauces and gravy includes:

Chilli sauce of hot sauce (lat jiu jeung or lat jeung)
Sweet sauce (tim jeung)
Mushroom gravy (tung ku chap)
Curry gravy (kali chap)

Although I must say that, chee cheong fun with sauce and sprinkled toast sesame seed is mainly consumed for breakfast, whereas for supper, chee cheong fun is eaten as it is.
