    Honestly the places that you been is not the best yet.
    Those places is great but not the best.
    When you in ipoh first you should try original white coffee + Ganja rice then dim sum.

    Mike, Thanks for coming my hometown and especially where i stay, Menglembu... There is more great food around Menglembu.. You should come again and I can bring you for a food tour.... There is more to offer in Ipoh.. The tour guide ordered the wrong fried noodles, the fried noodles is better if you ordered with prawn, blood cockles and egg... You can try xin quan fang curry noodles too but queue is expected.. Sorry to say, if you ask other people in ipoh they will say Ming Court is not the best, easy to say Dim Sum street dim sum is not nice and that guy didnt order you some Pork Ribs with fermented bean sauce..He is doing it wrong..and you should try Chooi Yue Dim Sum

I can´t get those things here and don´t know how to make it myself (Do you just cook the grains with ginger and lemon?).... but what I understood is that its good for the blood pressure, for the digestion system and good against the hot weather.... Thank you!!!

    The train journey up to Ipoh is a pleasure; no scenery as such but cheap and fast and the standard of the train is very good. All the food there is good; I never had a bad meal there except for my Hotel, where it was rubbish. The breakfast was free but they were trying to do an Western menu and failing horribly.

    Their not soft boiled. They are done a little differently. Boil the water. Gently drop the 2 eggs. Turn off the heat. Wait 5-10 min to cook 😊

    As a Malaysian, I am so glad that you had made a trip here KL, Ipoh and Penang. But honestly is a bit rush and not only Chinese cuisine available here. Due to the time constraints and your tight schedule, we hope that you can really spend another trip here to try out more local delicacies. Like you introduction so much and trust me, our local invent of kaya (sweet) and butter (salty) creates a wonderful sparks with toast. Not to mention about the simply soft boiled egg which can really kidnap your heart and soul. Terima kasih Mike and your pretty female assistant I guess.
