Ipoh Canning Garden Chee Cheong Fun (CCF) at PJ Old Town!
Hmmmmm… would this CCF pass the test of this Ipoh gal’s tastebuds?
Well, the mushroom sauce with the mince pork is actually rather reminiscent of the Ipoh Canning Garden CCF sauce in texture, but in taste, the mushroom was too overwhelming and the dark sauce too heavy. Also, the chillie sauce was completely awful with a stale manufactured taste.
No where near Ipoh Canning actually. (I have to say that Ipoh folk all have their own favourites, when it comes to CCF, so let me just clearly say that the Ipoh Canning one is my fav ok? lol…)
The Sar Hor Fun here is pretty good. Light chewy balls in a sweet, lardy soup, with springy noodles. No complaints.
After brunch, seeing as it was a long weekend and all, we thought it might be a good idea to swing by Tong Woh, PJ State, to pick up our wines for the holiday season… Judging from the long snaking queues and the hordes of cars jamming up the small lane, so did half the PJ folk.
Anyway, whilst we were picking out our wines, we noticed something blue-green on the shelves…
What? They sell Absinthe here in Malaysia? Aiyoh, had we known, we wouldn’t have had to ‘tumpang’ our friends coming back from Europe to buy it for us…
The 68% one looked rather hardcore.
Another cool tipple for the new year celebrations… are you intrigued?!
Finally we took our place in the long, long line, at the checkout counter… Good job they give discounts at Tong Woh, because we can feel our wallets getting lighter already and Christmas isn’t even here yet… oo-er.. ;P
