When we talk about breakfast in Ipoh the first thing that will cross your mind would be DIM SUM.In Ipoh, to have Dim Sum for weekend’s breakfast is a norm where most of the people flock around the Dim Sum street (Jalan Leong Sin Nam).
Prior to the gathering of MfM Anniversary, myself and Andrew woke up early at 6am and drive to Ipoh for Dim Sum. I was thinking to reach there at 8 plus where you can still able to try out the new Foh San Dim Sum outlet.
The New Big Foh San Building
We are so dead wrong! The place were packed! You can see the que goes out till the main door and road. Same for the take away corner where it is dedicated just for take away orders.
The new Ground Floor Setup …. Nice but sad so many people standing around waiting for table
Stair Case to second floor …. just look at the amount of people going up
Nicely decorated stair case …. took this shot while heading up
The second floor were flooded and fully packed as well …..
We look around and waited for 5 mins ….. Hell no we will get a table that morning …. all come in family size and all the tables were fully loaded. We headed to Ming Court Dim Sum which is right opposite of the new Foh San which also packed.

Judging by the view of the crowd waiting outside, we didn’t even bother wanna go and try our luck and straight heading to Yoke Fook Moon.

Again we were disappointed by the crowd. We gave up and went to old town for White Coffee Breakfast. My personal favorite since the old days were Sin Yoon Loong. Unfortunately this shop were off on Sunday. So I went to the one next door instead which is Sun Yuan Foong.

Before we cross the road, there’s something which caught my attention. Apom Balik stall! hur hur hur …… that’s one of my fav snack.
Just look at all the thin and crispy pan cake baking in progress
I just like mine with extra corn and peanuts!
The pancake come with RM0.70 each and 3 for RM2. All come with corn and peanuts unlike in KL, just plain peanut already RM0.90 at least. After that we cross the road heading to Sun Yuan Foong. Then we saw a roast pork stall and a confectionery stall which we couldn’t resist and tar pao some roast pork.
