Breakfast Food Trip in Ipoh – New Foh San Dim Sum, Yoke Fook Moon Dim Sum, Ming Court Dim Sum, Kedai Kopi Sun Yuan Foong

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.Β  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.

    Hi and greetings from IPOH.. got to know u from Motormouth IPOH.. he told me I could get more information on own domain from u.. hahaa.. well, hope i could.. but later.. now i want to comment on the dim sum-s. FYI, i havent tried out foh san yet but heard plenty of comments, mostly negative, i wonder why…the food not fresh, not hot, too crowded, ppl overlooking at u while u were eating.. like.. how to say, not comfortable la.. hahaa…
    Maybe that is why i do not want to go yet.. wait for the suitable time where there is not much crowd anymore and i can enjoy peacefully then…
    btw, great blog u have here too!

    this CCF seller had been at it for YEARS now!
    since i was in primary school in fact, we used to go all the way to old town for dinner/supper.
    he’s opened at night back then.

    haha, your dim sum crawl was similar to mine, the 1st time I tried to sample NEW Foh San.

    Wow! Must try this when I get into Ipoh next month. Sure looks very good and very nice pictures all round. BTW, I am planning to rent a car for 5 days but cannot find any at the Ipoh airport. Can anyone help me?

    Yeah, you’d think that by having a bigger place it would be able to accommodate more people but still it is jam pack. Ken didn’t even take a picture of the people that was quieing for take-away. Imagine it is like a long queue of ladies lining up to use the toliet at various shopping malls on a weekend.

    I guess Foh San has been over-evaluated. People go there because of the reviews by food-bloggers and food guide travellers. Last weekend I travelled from kuantan to ipoh to try the so-called best tim sum in ipoh. I tried Ming Court first and 1 hr later crossed over to the opposite side where the new Foh San is. My opinion…..I prefer Ming Court. First, it is much much cheaper. Second, I get better service in Ming Court. In Foh San….self service. Third, no servette or tissue paper in Foh San. They expect you to bring your own….or wipe your mouth with your hands. If you really need tissue, you buy them from the counter. Foh San is very pricey!!!!!!! There are other tim sum restaurants in Ipoh where you can find good tim sums too.
