Hey what’s up guys this is Johnson for JohnsonMalaysia.com today I’m in Ipoh town in Perak, one of the states in Malaysia.
Today I’m venturing into three parts of Ipoh town for food. Dim Sum at Ming Court Restaurant kind of Hong Kong style Dim Sum (Dumpling) just across the road there is another restaurant called Foh Sun also well patronage Dim Sum. Each of the restaurant has their own plus points. Ming Court has a cheerful welcome party and Foh Sun grand place. Both place food nice. I leave to you tourist to test both. Sometime Muslim brothers also want to have Dim Sum for that there is Halal Dim Sum. I had Lo Mai Gai (Gluttons rice with Meat filling) and Prawn Dim Sum.
Next from here I took Grab equivalent to Uber service other countries, from there I went to home factory producing Biscuits, traditional fragrant biscuits known as Heong Peah.
I met the owner, Mr Boon. A very hospitable man. He worked for 31 years and this home factory business now 10 years.
The interesting part about this fragrant Heong Peah biscuit is that it is fired in a furnace using coconut shell. The modern mass producers using gas and electric oven for faster production. Boon told the fragrant comes from the coconut Shell that used as fuel in the furnace. The Heong Peah feelings are caramel from sugar, honey, fried onion and etc.
Beside the fragrant biscuit Boon also supplies fantastic Kaya (Coconut milk, egg & Sugar) puff super nice. When I was there freshly baked Kaya puff arrived. Boon told me to leave it open for half an hour before closing them because it is still hot, it was truly delicious taste.
Nasi Ganja / Marijuana rice
From here, later I went to the famous marijuana rice or known as nasi Ganja. This is actually nasi Kandar which started from Penang made famous by the Indian Muslim people. They came from South India in the early days. These people cooked and carried on sizable 2 baskets on each side of the pole going across their shoulder. They were brought to Penang Port to sell.
The nasi Ganja is very famous because its is simple yet delicious taste. Fried chicken, Shredded coconut Sambal (hot sauce) cucumber, salted egg this basic race made people become addicted to it.
