Woong Kee Tau Fu Fah @ Ipoh (旺記祖傳豆腐花)

Woong Kee Tau Fu Fah in Ipoh (旺記祖傳豆腐花) is fast becoming Ipohans’ new favorite place.  The stall started off as a small stall in Bercham and has now expanded to a bigger store on Jalan Ali Pitchay (Off Jalan Yang Kalsom).  When it comes to weekends and public holidays, good luck, because you’ll need the patience to queue.  Continue reading

Thanks to my bestie, Kat from SpoonSpatulaSaturday, we went on a gastronomic adventure and tried more things than we could stomach and still wished to try more.   You will be able to find most of the food featured in the post along the main road of Chinatown, Yawarat Road, except for No. 8, which is hidden in a small lane.    Continue reading

“Mala” Crayfish is the signature dish on “Ghost Street” (Gui Jie 簋街) in Beijing.  Almost every restaurant that we pass by is selling this delicacy! Some of the restaurants even have three or branches on the same street.  We picked Zai Zai restaurant (簋街仔仔) because there is at least 8 branches of them along the street so I thought they gotta be good right?   Continue reading
