My mother brought us to this restaurant on our first day here, saying that this was one of the highly recommended dim sum places in Ipoh. I was horrified. The staff were super friendly & worked pretty fast too. Turnover rate was crazily high. Food was too expensive for its quality.
Servings were really small, but it's good if you have the habit of ordering multiple items & sharing. You see servers everywhere, carrying food items. So the waiting time for your food is virtually nonexistent.
I hated their egg tarts. In Hong Kong, I could eat 10-12 similarly sized egg tarts at one go, but I had to force the 2 that I ordered here. The egg custard was acceptable, but the skin was undercooked inside & so very, very thick.
I counted more strips of ginger than bits of century egg in the porridge. I ordered Century Egg Porridge!
Chee Cheong Fun was filled partially with air. The accompanying sauce was incredibly salty. Ugh.
If you're not one who can tolerate savory foods in the morning, skip the fried stuff. They're too oily, enough to make me gag.
I'd really advise against putting this restaurant on your 'Must Visit' list.
