Lunch At Hoong Tho Restaurant In Ipoh Old Town.

This post is about a lunch we had with friends in the middle of January. Since all of us preferred noodles, we went to Hoong Tho Restaurant in Ipoh old town. We ordered the following for 4 people.
Deep fried dumplings or wantons.
4 fish balls for 4 people.
Flat rice noodle in egg gravy - single portion.
Yee mee or chewy noodle in dark sauce.
After we have finished our lunch, we just couldn't resist buying 2 pieces of these traditional sponge cake from the same restaurant to share.
And we also bought a chempedak cake to take home to enjoy. Chempedak is something like the jack fruit but it is softer and has a nice fragrance.
Hubby only ate a few pieces, I finished off the rest.
The restaurant also sells these Chinese New Year cookies and snacks.
A few shops away, we stopped to look at these Chinese sausages and waxed meat. These waxed items are usually sold before the Chinese New Year.
We bought 2 pieces of waxed duck legs which is hubby's favourite.
Buah Bidara - a tropical fruit, crisp and a bit juicy and a bit sweet.
This is the first time I bought and tasted these fruits.

The following picture was taken at the National Museum.
 This is a replica of the Royal Throne of the state of Perak.
This Royal Throne has been used during the installation of His Royal Highness Sultan Iskandar Shah (the 30th Sultan of Perak) in 1918. Since then it was used during the installation of His Royal Highness Sultan Abdul Aziz Al-Mustasim Billah Shah in 1938. His Royal Highness Sultan Yussuff Izzudin Shah in 1948 and His Royal Highness Sultan Idris Iskandar Al-Mutawakkil Allalahi Shah II in 1963 in Iskandariah Palace, Kuala Kangsar, Perak. (Information from the National Museum)


The Lord has made the heavens his throne;

from there he rules over everything there is.

(Psalm 103:19, The Living Bible-TLB)

  5. I like to eat deep fried wantons. can you taste the chempedak in the cake? any lumps of chempedak meat in the cake? Oh I have eaten buah bidara once. I did not know it as buah bidara then. I know it by the English name which is Jujube.

    1. I like fried wantons too. Oh yes, you can taste the chempedak, there's small lumps of chempedak in the cake. Now the amount has been reduced.
