Ipoh Old Town - Foh San Dim Sum

It is a nice weather Saturday morning, I was worried the previous night as it has been raining for the past 3 days. But the weather turns out well. We were on the way down to Tambun Lost World from Penang, and decided to stop by Foh San to have dim sum for breakfast.

It is quite a challenging task to have breakfast there. First, you'll need to find a car park. Then, you'll need to find a seat in the restaurant. :)

The second task is a lot tougher, especially with 2 kids. :P

The last time I was here is like 12 years ago, and I don't really remember how it was last time. So, it ends up a bit blur when we are at the restaurant. The commando aunty of the restaurant is nice enough to help me get a table after she saw us wondering around for half an hour. Really happy about it. :)

The restaurant is basically jam packed. It is another kind of experience where you need to stand by the table and wait for people to finish their food.

There are few counters served different food, the dim sum counter is actually at the entrance, with this special counter which serve the "zhu chang fen" and porridge. I ordered a porridge, but the size is really huge. There are also another "to go" counter, specially for those who wish to take back the food or rushing to another place.

The entrance, where all the important activities located, take dim sum, and pay. :P
It is really amazing how efficient is the the restaurant work flow. With crowds keep swamp into the restaurant, they still able to cope with the seating, foods and payments.

The service plate looks really nice, with the restaurant sign imprint on it, cool.......I personally think that it is more like a sushi plate.

The bun! My favorites for morning dim sum, especially the char siew pau!

Another must have, the egg tart. The filling is really generous, with the crispy thin outer layer, really a perfect match. Nice!

The porridge. Think twice before you order, especially if you are there with only 2 adults (like me). The porridge is nice, just that it is too much for 2 persons. :) Perfect if you have party of 4. :)

Porridge in a small bowl, I was actually expecting this size......well, hopes that next time they did serve the porridge in a smaller portion.

One of the main dish, the "siew mai".

The restaurant sign at the main entrance. :)
