Ginseng Wu Long Tea RM8 per pot, instead of charging per person they charge per pot as this high quality tea are different from Pu Er, Tie Guan Yin…etc. Ginseng Wu Long Tea has very smooth texture and strong after taste, it is not too bitter as well. RM8 for 5 of us consider quite cheap.

Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun filled with few pieces of prawn inside, rice sheet is extremely soft and the chili paste must add more to have that sauteed and spicy taste.

Tai Tong Dim Sum Restaurant Cintra Street Georgetown Penang

Tai Tong Dim Sum is one of the famous Dim Sum restaurant in Penang and the restaurant has been established for many years, it is still one of the favorite restaurant for local people and now tourist but personally I visit this restaurant not more than 5 times, why? because no parking, it is extremely hard to find parking spot in town area and honestly the food quality is not as good anymore. Their food overall quite salty and we drink a lot of water after that.

Pan fried fish ball is big in portion but too salty to our liking.

Braised Duck Meat, believe the duck meat must be braised for long as it fully absorb the sauce flavor and the bone easily fall of from bone, it is so soft and delicious.

Abalone Siew Mai, extremely small size abalone, smaller than 10sen i think. Honestly you can’t even taste the abalone instead it just put there for presentation, the siew mai is flavorful and delicious.

48 Hours Food Tour Ipoh KL Sekinchan and Malaysia Longest Pasar Malam

Few weeks back we just back from a Food Marathon Trip starting from Penang down to Ipoh then KL, a lot people say we are crazy for eating non-stop but that is what we enjoy the most. This round we are going down to KL on Saturday for a seminar, very short seminar that only run for 3 hours so we take this opportunity to visit some of the places we miss previously.
Since my seminar start at 1pm which mean we need to wake up much early at 6am in order to dine in Ipoh before going to KL. Below are the summary of our 2 days trip, it is pretty straight forward route, Penang – Ipoh – KL – Sekinchan – Bidor – Penang.

First stop at Qi Yuan Restoran China Chuan Kwang, a China style Dim Sum restaurant rather than Foh San Dim Sum which we go normally. This is our second visit to Qi Yuan, we always struggle to decide eat here or Foh San but this time we are very sure to come here since 2 weeks back we just visit Foh San. What we like here is the order to steam dim sum, all dim sum served on table are hot and fresh, their signature ramen very good as well.

After enjoy a great dim sum we drive down to SS2 to buy Bah Kua at Wing Heong but sadly we bought the wrong one, it suppose to be New Wing Heong instead of Wing Heong, anyhow since we already bought it so we have to enjoy it, luckily the taste is quite good. Since we are here in SS2, we simply pick one restaurant for our “not hungry” stomach, Restoran Soong Kee SS2. We order one soup mixed beef noodle and one dry beef tendon noodle, the soup without strong beef flavor and sweetness but still not bad, dry beef tendor noodle has much better taste and the tendons is extremely soft like jelly texture.

After that we went for seminar then check into our Hotel, Merinda Hotel (Formerly known as Prescott Hotel Klang). We did not take any of the hotel photo as it was raining heavily and all parking are outside so both of us are soaking wet, immediately check in and bath. Overall the hotel is acceptable, although the entrance card sensor got some problem where we need to swipe countless time to make it work but inside everything is clean and tidy except toilet which is kinda old. Service is nice and check in/out are smooth and fast.

Luckily after an hour rain stop and we can go to the Malaysia longest Pasar Malam at Setia Alam. The Pasar Malam aka Night Market has hawker selling food, clothes, grocery…etc at 2.2KM stretch of road, walking back and fourth generated 4.4KM walking. That sound like a lot of walk but honestly when you saw so much great food along the way, you just forgot about the distance. We spend around 3 hours here eating local delicacy for our dinner and truly impress, food are great and price reasonable.
First stop at Coconut Shake, instead of using water as based they use fresh coconut juice as based and top with generous amount of vanilla ice cream. It not too sweet instead it is extremely refreshing and great taste.

From far we can smell the “stinky tofu”, I ask her whether want to try or not and she refuse but as a food blogger I have to challenge this, this is not my first time, i try it in another night market before and i try it in Taiwan before so for me it is acceptable. We order one small portion and surprisingly it is not as stinky as i would expected. The pickle vegetable taste sourish and sweet, stinky tofu taste sauteed with strong smell, topping with chili sauce. Overall it taste great and crunchy.
kltravelll9 (8)

kltravelll9 (9)

Deep fried squid, honestly this is the worst snack we ate throughout the whole night market. RM10 for a piece of squid, deep fried then brush with sweet sauce, squid is way overcook to extremely dry and flavorless while the sweet sauce just doesn’t match the squid. Big Disappointment.
kltravelll9 (10)

kltravelll9 (12)

Few years back when we study in KL, almost every night we tapao dinner at night market and Malay Mix Rice is our favorite. This stall offer great variety of curry and immediately I know it is good, i took a big plate include of cuttlefish, chicken, egg, ikan bilis with a lot of mix “kuah” for just RM7. The curry taste so so good and we miss it so much.
kltravelll9 (13)

Baked fresh oyster, emm…we not really interested but just curious how they maintain the oyster freshness.
kltravelll9 (14)

Taiwan Jambu RM5 a pack, highly recommended. The Jambu mixed with plum and it has very strong jambu taste and plum make it taste so good.
kltravelll9 (15)

Honestly we rarely attracted to Pan Mee but we saw this stall has so many people queuing so we decided to give it a try, we order the dry pan mee which came with some kind of leave, deep fried ikan bilis and pan mee. The thick gravy taste a little bit sweet and sauteed, ikan bilis very crunchy, pan mee is nicely cook, overall taste good.
kltravelll9 (16)

kltravelll9 (17)

Last but not least Malay style “yong tou fu”, we tapao back as we are too full to eat here but we regretted because the taste just so so and we are too full to finish, what a waste.
kltravelll9 (2)

kltravelll9 (18)

kltravelll9 (19)

There even have a portable hair cut service. Nice!
kltravelll9 (20)

Overall we are very happy walking 4.4KM pasar malam and truly enjoy dining here. Highly recommended.

The next day we wake up around 9 something and drive to nearby Bak Kut Teh shop for breakfast. The shop name Teluk Pulai Ba Kut Teh, corner lot with ample of parking space, there is another 2 Bah Kut Teh side by side but we decided to try this shop just because it has the most crowd.
kltravelll9 (26)

Overall the Bak Kut Teh taste very good and portion is extremely big even we just order small, it soup rich with pork taste and sweetness, not so much on herbs. Ingredients is fresh but for those don’t take organ remember to exclude it as they do put a lot into it. The soup Bak Kut Teh is good but what best is the Dry Bah Kut Teh, we order another bowl of Dry Pork Leg which came with thick sauce and it is extremely flavorful, this might the best dry Bah Kut Teh i try before, it taste sweet, sauteed with mild spicy. It is a must try dish if you happen to visit Klang.

Next to it is this Bah Kut Teh, according to the menu they have sea cucumber Bak Kut Teh, sound interesting to me and added to my “To-Eat” list.
kltravelll9 (27)

After a complete breakfast, we drive down to Sekinchan and that route took us almost 1+ hour on non-highway road.
kltravelll9 (28)

We are here at Sekinchan.
kltravelll9 (29)

We visited Kilang Beras Rakyat Sekinchan, a small factory process rice in Sekinchan.
kltravelll9 (30)

Inside the factory got Paddy Gallery, which they show us the overall process of planting, harvest, manufacturing and packing. Very informative.
kltravelll9 (32)

RM5 per person for Paddy Gallery entrance, remember to keep the receipt as you can get a free gift later on.
kltravelll9 (31)

Inside the Paddy Gallery they show us video of the overall progress and introduce their product.

You can even buy Sekinchan rice which only available on certain state, like Penang are not available.
kltravelll9 (38)

We end up buying something not related to Sekinchan, ice cream. HaHa!
kltravelll9 (40)

We took some photo next to the factory, as it was freaking hot so we just take a few photo.
kltravelll9 (41)

Remember i ask you to keep the receipt? Yes, you can exchange for a small pack of Sekinchan rice at the counter where you purchase entrance ticket.
kltravelll9 (42)

Just few minute drive away from Rice Factory we are at the Sekinchan beach, where the Hong Kong drama film are taking scene here. It has since become so famous and crowded. Right beside the temple has one big tree and everyone just throw the lucky stripe at it, it fully cover with red lucky stripe making it so photogenic.
kltravelll9 (43)

kltravelll9 (44)

It is “free” to grab a lucky strip in the temple but donation is highly recommended. They do provide pen for you to write your wish before throwing to the lucky tree.
kltravelll9 (45)

kltravelll9 (46)

I saw a lot people fail to throw it up high, here is my tips, grab it into palm size and throw, this gave more force for it to go up high.
kltravelll9 (47)

kltravelll9 (48)

I just like the temple and lucky tree combination.
kltravelll9 (49)

As a tourist, we have to some what tourist doing, take a photo with “I love Sekinchan”.
kltravelll9 (50)

Walk across you will be at the beach. What a nice weather (although very hot but better than raining).
kltravelll9 (51)

kltravelll9 (52)

kltravelll9 (53)

Collect shell at the beach, the whole beach side is cover up by shell so bare foot is not recommended.
kltravelll9 (54)

kltravelll9 (55)

We collected some unique and nice texture shell. Wondering around here for around 2 hours then we decided to go back, it is quite a nice place for relax.
kltravelll9 (56)

On the way back, we decided to visit Bidor famous duck soup noodle Pun Chun Bidor (品珍就楼). The restaurant is extremely famous, a lot people purposely drive into Bidor just to eat here (it not that far from highway).

We order 2 bowl of wantan mee, one with wantan and another one with duck soup both cost us RM17. Honestly price is acceptable.
kltravelll9 (57)

Duck soup is a must try here, it is very refreshing with herb taste. We eat till the last drop, it taste good added into the wantan mee as well.
kltravelll9 (58)

The wantan mee just normal, it a little bit too dry and hard for us and the sauce doesn’t has the fragrance of soy sauce.
kltravelll9 (60)

kltravelll9 (61)

kltravelll9 (65)

Before i forgot, Coffee is a must order. It has very strong coffee aroma and very smooth, it taste very good.
