Kedai Makan SINKI - Dengkil

I was googling for nice food to try out in Dengkil since I knew I would be making trips to the LCCT. Kedai Makan Sinki came out high on the list.

One of the signature dishes, Chili Fish. RM22

It was nice, but still I think it's over-rated. I guess deep frying is really not my thing. I don't mind it once in a while though.

Steamed sang har /fresh water prawns and yellow wine. Absolutely yummy. RM44 for this but totally worth it. The flesh was nice, firm and fresh.

I notice that they sell mixed rice too.

Restoran Min Kee - Gopeng

Another nice eatery we discovered on our last day in Gopeng. However, after being in the restaurant for a while, I recalled having been there once many many years ago!

Steamed Herbal chicken. Very nice. RM7.00

I saw the roasted ducks and roasted pork as well so I ordered those too. Bad mistake!

Roasted duck. Dry and not very flavorful.

The siew yuk/roasted pork wasn't very nice either. The skin was quite hard and not crunchy.

RM7 for the roasted duck and roasted pork.

The bill came to RM24.40 including 3 plates of rice and 3 herbal drinks. Very good price.

I saw fish head curry too but we already ordered chicken, duck and pork by then and definitely no room for another dish! But I know I will stop by in Gopeng for this the next time I go up north!

Edit: 2nd visit to Min Kee

Grouper fish head curry, the thick and lemak type. RM27 for this alone, not including rice nor drink!!! Too pricey I think.

The flesh was quite tough. Overall, I think it's not worth the price.

Restoran Peng Yew - Gopeng

I came to know about this restaurant when I saw my friends posting food photos from this restaurant. I was particularly attracted by the Yong Lam Pou (mutton belly in claypot) and sambal petai (stinky beans). Unfortunately, both items were not available on the night of our visit :(

Stir fried snakehead fish fillets with spring onions and ginger. Really yummy stuff! RM36

Fish bone wine soup. The bony parts of the fish were deep fried and then cooked in yellow wine soup. RM7

Kin Hong Food and Drink center Gopeng

Kin Hong is located in Kopisan, Gopeng. We got there at 7am on a Thursday and the place was almost full!

Many varieties to choose from.

Hakka yong tau fu...many different varieties to choose from.

yong tau fu R0022078 copy
I found the yong tau fu really very ordinary. Nothing special at all.

We had lai fun to go with all the yong tau fu. The lai fun here was much thicker than the usual type but really soft. A little too soggy for my liking.

3 bowls of lai fun and all the other items you saw above came to about RM12.xx. Quite cheap. Drinks not included.

Chicken congee, Gopeng Food Court

I used to think that Gopeng (and Kampar) were ghost towns until recently, when a friend showed us around town to check out some eateries. It was a pleasant surprise to see so many hidden treasures in the little town of Gopeng. I know I will be skipping Ipoh when I travel up north again next time!

We had only two days and one night in Gopeng but we managed to try out a few outlets.

The first one was this chicken congee from the Gopeng Food Court near the wet market (?). A little raw but still very nice. Lean, flavorful meat.

Location: inside the Gopeng Pasar /wet market.

Smokehouse, Fraser's Hill

I have stayed in Ye Olde Smokehouse before and also dined there as well many many years ago. Love that place. However, I actually haven't had tea there so on a recent trip to Fraser's Hill, I made it a point to enjoy an afternoon tea there.

Tea set for two. RM33. Two scones with strawberry jam, cream, and one brownie, one orange cake, one Earl Grey cake and one apple pie. 3pm to 6 pm only.

10% service charge and 6% Government taxes apply!

The scones were nice and warm, but the rest were no good. Dry and even a little stale.

But Smokehouse is such a lovely place and the ambiance is just wonderful. I would go back there again! Maybe I'll just order the scones and not the other cakes.

Kedai Kopi IUI - Dengkil

Kedai Kopi IUI is located on Jalan Besar, Dengkil. It's right next to the famous restaurant, Sin Ki.

I ordered one sang yuk pau and one mui choy pau each at first.
Dengkil pau R0021842 copy
You will notice that the pastry was a little yellowish and not snow white like what you would get in most dim sum places. Bleached flour is used to make that kind of white pau.

Sang Yuk Pau 生肉包. Yummy and only lean pork was used.

I also ordered a bowl of red bean soup.

Mui Choy Pau (梅菜包). Very nice too.

Yau Char Gwai (You Tiao,油条). Crispy outside yet soft and tender inside. Not chewy like what you would get at most other places.

The frying was done outside where everyone can see it. You can see how clear the oil was before deciding whether to go for the fried you tiao and hum chin peng.
