One of the famous Chinese cuisine that i love is Bak Kut Teh, especially the Bak Kut Teh in Ipoh. The reason being is the Bak Kut Teh that I tasted from Penang or Kulim or even from Kuala Lumpur are all slightly different from the one in Ipoh.
I had my dinner in Yum Yum Bak Kut Teh Restaurant yesterday and this is one of the famous Bak Kut Teh restaurant in Ipoh and also one of my favourite Bak Kut Teh restaurant in Ipoh, another one being Restaurant Soon Lee.
Anyway, back to the Yum Yum Bak Kut Teh Restaurant, the restaurant is actually located in opposite Taman Shatin. You can also visit www.yumyumbakkutteh.com.my for more information on the restaurant. The Bak Kut Teh, I must say, I like it very much compare to those in the northern side or many other places because I feel that the soup is nice. I have tried few Bak Kut Teh in the northern region, but I still feel the Bak Kut Teh in Ipoh suit me most.
We ordered pork knuckles vinegar or something like that, the Bak Kut Teh and a plate of vegetable - well, just more than enough for the five of us. The Bak Kut Teh soup that we have here is definitely and easily tastier than those I have in Penang area or Kulim area. Those area somehow serving Bak Kut Teh soup that taste a little bit bitter, maybe due to they have more herbs.
The pork knuckles vinegar taste just nice for my liking, just as the Bak Kut Teh soup taste just good enough for me. Another different I notice between the Bak Kut Teh in Ipoh are usually served with pork meat, while those in Penang and Kulim served with pork meat balls - or maybe I don't know how to order there, something that I always wondered since the first time I tried the Bak Kut Teh there. Hmm....
The Bak Kut Teh will cost RM7 per person, so, if one happens to drop by Ipoh, don't forget to drop by this restaurant to try out one of the tastiest Bak Kut Teh soup in town.

I just posted Sumptuous Western Food at Beacon Point, Ipoh last week and my intention was not to post another western food until another few post, but I just been to this place at Chai Leng Park and the food that I had in this small western food cafe worth mentioning in this blog.
The cafe that I went earlier today is the Smel's Cafe, which is located in one of the residential area in Chai Leng Park - well, in fact, the cafe itself was a semi-detached house before converted and renovated into a small cafe. If you guys would like to know about the cafe, it is located at 20 Lebuhraya Kurau,Taman Chai Leng Perai, Pulau Pinang 13700.

We have so many western food like chicken chops, fish and chips or grilled lamb easily available at most of the food courts in Malaysia that it seems having western food as part of our weekly meal has become almost a norm to everyone.
However, on Wednesday after moving in some stuff to my house in Ipoh Garden East, my sister recommend us to have lunch at the Beacon Point. Outside the shop, you will not realized that this humble shop will serve you western food that can match even the five star hotels.
It seems to me that Beacon Point started out as a bakery, and till now, it still serves some of the best cakes and breads. I can see a lot of delicious cakes from where I sit.....and although the shop looks a bit shabby, it still have one of the best environment that one can wish for during lunch hour.

Yesterday a friend and I went to try out one of the famous Tom Yum at Raja Uda. There are few famous Tom Yum at Raja Uda, but I want to give this shop a try first. If you asked me, there is no sign board of the shop name, so, if you were to ask me about the shop name, I also don't know is the shop name.
Anyway, without a proper sign board, the place is like full almost all the time - so you can roughly guess how famous is the Tom Yum in this place. The shop is actually located few shops after a primary school, Kwang Hwa Primary School (SJK (C) Kwang Hwa. If you are planning to there by using GPS, you can search location like the school or a nearby condominium Cassia and after that asked the people around......and they can directly show you where to go, just within few minutes of walking distance. Anyway, here is my Fourquare check-in details.

Life in Kuala Lumpur is quite tough, especially when I had to endure the food that is nothing close to Ipoh's food...even talking about the food in Ipoh gives a yummy feeling!!
Anyway, last weekend, my friends and I decided to go to Sentosa in Petaling Jaya to eat the famous roast pork and chicken rice there. We used to go there for makan once a while during our university days.
