17 One Night In Ipoh

My dearest friend's sister was tying the knot.

We were thrilled to receive an invitation. Weeks later, we found ourselves on a road trip down to Ipoh for one night just to attend the wedding. We had planned to do a little sightseeing as well. Who knew that it would turn out to be a food sightseeing trip instead!

It began with these yummy snacks, bunga telur (hard-boiled eggs) and cookies that my friend gave us at the wedding do.

Bunga Telur and Wedding Snacks

After the wedding, we took a leisurely drive around places near the Lost World of Tambun and Banjaran Hotsprings to see if we should book a stay there on another trip.

We headed into town for an early dinner that evening. A banner with a picture of this soy sauce baby octopus dish drew us into Restoran Sun Tuck Kee. We ordered flat rice noodles and braised chicken feet to go with it - a thoroughly enjoyable meal. Am I making you salivate with these pictures?

There was a local fruit and snacks store along the same road - Chop Wong Yew Kee. We dropped in for a look-see and brought home these goodies! I could not resist buying the chicken lap cheong (Chinese sausage) and pumpkin crackers. It was my first time seeing it. The pumpkin crackers were so yum that my girlfriend and I finished it in one sitting during our chitchatting - this was after I had returned to KL. The lap cheong? It sits in the cupboard waiting for Chinese New Year. That's when I will eat it!

The next morning, we headed into town to dapao (takeaway) the famous Tau Fu Fah (tofu pudding) from Funny Mountain. We breakfasted nearby with wantan noodles whilst waiting for the shop to open.

Behold, the silkiest tau fu fah I have ever eaten!

I made my way across the road to order one salted chicken to take away . We drove back to KL that afternoon. The salted chicken was our dinner that day.
