Scrumptious Dinner At Restoran Fan Chen Mei, Bercham

Recently, hubby's foodie friend recommended a restaurant and we went to try out the food on an evening when I didn't cook. We overheard one of the customer ordering coconut chicken soup and we too wanted to order the same. It has been a long time since we last had this soup. Before we ordered, we were told that their offer item for that day was clam (lala). To qualify for the offer, we have to order 2 other dishes excluding the soups. Since we wanted the soup, we declined the offer and will return to enjoy the offer on another day.

Double steamed coconut chicken soup @ RM6.80 (2 servings). When the soup was brought to our table, we could smell the fragrance of the coconut soup.
Fried soft and silky tofu @ RM13.00, topped with pickled radish & minced pork.
They made their own tofu.
Marmite pork rib @ RM16.00. Nice and tender.
Total cost of dinner: RM38.40.
(including 2 small portion rice + 1 Chinese tea)
Business hours for dine-in: from 2pm to 8pm.
Tuesday is their off day.
Location: 3a, Persiaran Medan Bercham 3,
Taman Bercham Baru, Ipoh.
The next day, we returned to the same restaurant with our friends.
On Friday, their offer item is Tilapia fish.
Steamed Tilapia fish with spicy sauce @ RM16.80.
To qualify for the offer, we ordered the next 2 dishes.
#1 - Stinky beans with minced pork @ RM16.00
#2 - Water spinach (kangkong) with fermented bean curd (fu yue) @ RM7.00
Spicy sour fish maw soup (Foochow style) @ RM13.00
This is enough for 4 people.
We also ordered coconut chicken soup for our friends to try @ RM6.80.
Total cost of dinner for 4 people = RM65.10
(including 4 rice, small portion and drink).
Sunset at 7:06pm
After dinner, we took a short drive around the area.
Sunset at 7:14pm.
Sunset at 7:15pm.
Sunset at 7:22pm.
On our way home, driving on the highway.

Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate!
The highway to hell is broad and its gate is wide enough
for all the multitudes who choose its easy way.
But the Gateway to Life is small,
and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it.
(Matthew 7:13-14, The Living Bible-TLB)

  6. As always, delicious food and beautiful photos.

  7. Very good price your Scrumptious Dinner. I must note down this Restoran Fan Chen Mei at Bercham. Did you expect the coconut soup to be served in a coconut or in a bowl?

    1. No, I was only expecting a delicious soup because it smells so good.

  8. Oh the food. I ate some of all the food. You two have the best food.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Nancy. ♥

  9. Oh my goodness- look at all that delicious food! And your sunset photos were lovely! Have A WONDERFUL day!

    1. Thank you, Kathe. Have a wonderful day too.

  10. That restaurant serves great food! It all looks delicious! The price seems reasonable for the amount of food you ordered.

    1. Thank you, Gigi. This is another new addition to our list of places to dine-in.

  11. I don't know much about tofu. But that is interesting that they make their own. Your dishes always look so interesting and fun. Photos are spectacular. Thank you.

  12. That looks like a great place!

  13. Las costillas de cerdo se ven muy ricas. Te mando un beso.

  14. We had chicken tonight.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  15. Prices are so low haha. A veg in KL would be about rm12 at it's simplest, not rm7 like what you got. Food looks really yummy as well.

    1. Thanks to hubby's friend, we found this place with good food and reasonable price.

  16. Wonderful food and photos! Hugs, Valerie

  17. I havent coconut-chicken soup before. Looks great. I am sure it must be delicious. I would like to eat it while watching beautiful sky view.

  18. I do love the rays fanning through the clouds. So many dishes, but pork ribs always look so good.

  19. La comida se ve muy bien. Besos.
