Off For A Day!

I'm off to Ipoh for a one day Makan trip! Stay tune for more foodiescapades...

Hmmm...what shall I eat? ;o) One thing for sure, I'll definitely be eating my usual chee cheong fun from this place. Here's an excerpt from an old post dated Nov 23, 2006.

This is where Czar gets her usual fix for her fave Chee Cheong Fun. Tai Kar Cheh has boycotted this guy as she says he's pretty rude, especially when there are lots of customers. He did seemed pretty quiet to me, not rude but serious looking. But he did recognise Czar as one of his regulars as she would pack about 8 packets back for her family each time she visits Ipoh.
The chee cheong fun was served on a metal plate (plus point for me) and was lovely. Served with pickled green chilli, it was a good breakfast. Anyway, we left the place with Tai Kar Cheh still vowing to boycott his stall (she ate noodles while the two of us had the yummy Chee Cheong Fun!).




P.S. Jason, thanks for the list! *hugs*

hmm... i nvr liked ipoh-style ccf with the pickled chilies, but ooh, wat i'd give to go back and have white coffee, foh san dim sum, teen tjun custard etc... *slurp*

CK Lam said...

That's one great and tasty CCF. The sauce and the sourish green chilies makes this a appetising snack...can't be found in Penang :(

ilene said...

Happy indulging! I'm sure you'll no doubt blog about it all upon your return? This is a wonderful food review blog! hahaha...

k.t.x said...

nice, i like yr fussiness of them being served on a steel plate. me too! HI^5!!!

but looking at the subsequent pic showing fried shallot on it...and it seem to hv no accompaniment(liew; fu pei, fishball, chu pei, taufu, long beans, etc) this place definitely cannot beat MY place. that's for sure babe! (without prejudice). fried shallots on CCF??? gosh! lol.

wmw said...

j2kfm : Yah, I would have called on you if you were around :o).

Daphne : You bet! ;o)

Jun : OOoh...I love ALL types of chee cheong fun! Hahaha...

CK Lam : Well, yeah but I think Ipoh style CCF is an acquired taste. See, Jun doesn't like it and one of my friends didn't either.

Ilene : Hahaha...thanks for the compliment. Well, for sure I'll blog about this short trip.

k.t.x : This is the Ipoh style lah. When in Rome do as the Romans do, when in Ipoh eat as the Ipohans do! ;p

Mama Bok : You coming back for a visit anytime soon???

Christine : Back and happy! Hahaha...

Jason : I did, thanks!

Have tried stir fried cheong fun with chai po (preserved radish) and served with pickled green chili. Like it very much. I have not tried this combi though.

Enjoy your makan trip *envious*

wonda said...

I had the best dim sum at Foh San! We had to each stand around for customers to get up to get a table! So crowded! I tried the chee cheong fun but it was not like yours. One more thing, there must be something wrong with my lumix camera. Why didn't my pictures turn out well as yours? Hmm......

J2Kfm said...

Shell (貝殼) said...

i never try chee cheong fun with pickled green chilli, they can go together ah?

wmw said...

BBO: Found good food in Lumut?

tigerfish : Oh, CCF with a bit of soya sauce and a bit of oil from fried shallots also lovely! Eaten with pickled green chillies makes it even better :o)

Wonda : We missed out on Foh San this time round. Take more photos, try from different angles and range :)

j2kfm: Huh, you Ipoh boy gets tips on where to eat in Ipoh from me??? You ah! Hahahah....

sc: Hehehe...wait ah....Where have you been? We still haven't met up for makan yet!

Shell : Oh, I feel it goes together best when it's eaten the way I told tigerfish above!

JeromeFo 令狐冲 said...

NekoHime said...

Hah, just had grumpy uncle's CCF this weekend. Didnt know he was so famous!

wmw said...

Jeromefo : Buy your own CCF and eat with pickled green chillies??? :o)

Nekohime : Oooh, you're in Ipoh or you made a trip there too?

NekoHime said...

I am from Ipoh :) but made the trip over the weekend to makan this grumpy man's CCF! I go all the way back for good CCF

Fortesfidelis said...

wow. the ccf certainly looks yummy. btw, is it an ipoh thing where you put green chilles on your ccf? Just wondering.

PureGlutton said...

I grew up on Ipoh CCF, haha! Somebody was just telling me about this particular CCF stall and how he uses his bare hands to handle the CCF! This is the shop across the Canning Gdn market, right? I usually go for other CCF stalls whenever im back in Ipoh - hv not tried this fella's yet!

wmw said...

Nekohime: Cool...love the food in Ipoh! :o)

fortesfidelis : Hi there! Uh-huh, I think it's an Ipoh thing with the green chillies, hahaha...

Pureglutton : Yup, that's the one. Bare hands, maybe that's why it's good! Hehehe...
