Food Surprises - Foh San Dim Sum 富山茶樓, Ipoh

Most in Ipoh should know Foh San Dim Sum. It's famous, really! Even most visitor will know this place for good dim sum, which practically comprise of dumplings and other side dishes at small little plates. However, for the past 5-6 years having a frequent visit to Ipoh, I had never been to this restaurant. Even before, I knew that it had recently moved to somewhere nearby, as the old place was over crowded. Honestly, I have been to its competitor, Ming Court couple of times, but not this.

This renovated Dim Sum Restaurant is much more better, you'd got the feel of stepping into a relaxing morning breakfast, just like when one have Dim Sum in Hong Kong. However, this is slightly more localized. I like the space compared to Ming Court, as it will not cause echo when the place been over crowded. One thing we noticed, we have to be real early to enjoy the morning breeze and less crowd, be there 8am is the best!

These were part of the servings we had.... yummy!

They have got a lot of choices for dish, but one thing I am not very satisfied as most of the dishes are colder than those normally served from the cart or handheld tray, which are practically hot from the steamer. Anyway, environment has compromises the serving, food seems to be nice and lots of variety.

Check out their official website - http://www.fohsan.com.my/, nice website too.

51 Jalan Leong Sin Nam, 30300 Ipoh, Perak.

Hmmm... I suddenly thought of dim sum. Should I head over to Sri Petaling one day for it?

Once after breakfast that Saturday when we were in Ipoh, we headed to Ipoh Railway Station for a while. This is a station I like most, peaceful yet convenient, most important it has its heritage scenic view!

Ipoh, the lovely heritage town!
