Dinner With Old Friends At Kopitiam Mun Soon, Taman Pinji Wani, Ipoh.

It was Easter Sunday and it happened to fall on 1st April, also April Fools day! The day went pretty smoothly with no April Fools pranks played on anyone of us. That evening, we had a dinner date with an old friend who wanted to give us a treat. We planned a Sunday dinner to accommodate a friend who works late on other days. Altogether there were 5 of us and we looked forward to tasting the food at this new place. Our earlier attempt was unsuccessful because the whole place was packed and many customers were waiting to be seated. This is a common scenario at newly opened eateries here in our country.

This time we went a bit earlier, making sure we reached the place before 6.30 pm to beat the dinner crowd. We arrived just in time to find a table available. Looking around we saw that every table was occupied. Before we even get seated, someone came to take orders and we left the ordering to the boss. Service was fast. In spite of the crowd, our dinner was served in a short while.
Appetizing sweet sour stewed pig's leg.
This alone will tempt you to eat extra rice.
Steamed salted free range chicken (half chicken).
Stir fried crunchy Romaine lettuce with fermented bean curd.
Deep fried tofu topped with deep fried shrimps, etc.
Stir fried 4 combination with spicy prawn paste
(long beans, stinky beans, winged bean, ladies fingers)

Kopitiam Mun Soon (same row as Restoran Pulau Sembilan).
In Chinese it is called Xin Shun Min
Thanks to our friend for this wonderful dinner.
Contact numbers and address on calling card.
Opening hours from 4.30 pm to 10.30 pm.

The following picture is for joining Tuesday's Treasure and Image-in-ing. 
Found this antique portrait in the dim sum Restaurant Sun Kim Aik, Falim.


He (Jesus) saw through their trickery and said, "Show me a coin.

Whose portrait is this on it? And whose name?"

They replied, "Caesar's - the Roman emperor's."

He said, "Then give the emperor all that is his - and give to God all that is his!"

Thus their attempt to outwit him before the people failed;

and marveling at his answer, they were silent.

(Luke 20:23-26, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. I think most of us here prefer cooked lettuce! I don't mind eating lettuce raw as in salad or used to wrap food.

  15. What a lovely meal. I'm guessing everyone is having dinner out like they do here on Easter. We always stay home. Too many people and the waits are too long. You were lucky to find a table and get waiting on so quickly.

    Have a fabulous day, Nancy. ♥
