Eating in Ipoh 吃在怡保
Today is the last day of our northern trip.
After breakfast, we visited Shangrila's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa at Batu Ferringi before leaving Penang for Ipoh.
Arriving at Peter Cho's house in Ipoh at noon. As always, Peter has Ipoh famous pomelo kept cold in the fridge ready for us. With temperature at 35 degree C, believe me, the pomelo is better than the forbidden fruit in the Eden!
We have Ipoh famous nga choi chicken for lunch and later toufu fa as dessert.
Salted chicken is another famous delicacy of Ipoh. We sent Amanda, the gui lou, to place an order of 4 chicken across the road by signalling to the staff of the shop. The super efficient staff sent over within minutes .... She enjoyed the process and the chicken as well ... it is fun!!
Thanks to Peter and Ann for their hospitality (as always).. and bid them goodbye at about 3:00 pm for home.
The eating and sight-seeing road trip ended successfully at Kajang with Amanda taking up the challenge of eating durian ... and she loved it !
This is Amanda's first trip to Asia. She comes with an open mind and adventurous spirit, she experienced the local culture and traditions, dare to try and enjoy all types of local food. She likes it ! (She knows the meaning of gui lou and accepted it good heartedly)
She will be going with my daughters to East Coast for an island holidays.
