Z007: Ipoh Zhu Cheong Fun

Ladies and Gentlemen, today our very special and honourable guest is with us. Let me introduce you, my beloved and all times favourite "Ipoh's Zhu Cheong Fun"!! (applause) *wink*

This is not any odinary zhu cheong fun that you can find on the whole continent of this country. Mind you, only Ipoh! Haha...

Not only it is cheap and looks good, also superb tasty. This dish may comes with either mushroom sauce or curry with 'pig's skin'. However , you can always still choose neither the 2 sauces I mentioned earlier, which is to have the plain zhu cheong fun with the "tim zhiong" (the red sweet sauce). In addition, you may request for the marinated green chillies.

As you can see from the picture above, the normal dish of zhu cheong fun in KL and Johor are very different from the one here. (Note: VERY DIFFERENT!!!) *ahem* "Very different!" I can't stop emphasizing the fact. I can clearly (very clearly) recall the very first time I ate 'those' in KL and Johor. I was totally shocked! (Like says foreigners who have the so called 'culture shock')

Wait! I must first clarify something before I move on. Please forgive me the words that I'm about to use in order to express the exact reaction, especially those who are from the states I've mentioned. Alright! Here goes! Arrgghhhh... Ewww... Gross!! How can anyone thought of using those superb duperb sweet sauce that taste like kaya? Hea Gou? I have no idea what are those!! Are those eatable? My goodness! Doesn't anyone actually feel that it's eerie?

This is the reason why zhu cheong fun appears in my Must-Eat list everytime I go back to Ipoh. *wink* I crave for it.

*Ahem* Anyway, I can't say that this is the best still, coz there's a better zhu cheong fun served in Teluk Anson. Everytime I eat the one from TA, I dare bet there isn't any other places can serve better than that one. **Thumbs UP**

Overall: 8/10 (Ipoh) 8.5/10 (TA)

Sister, I feel you. Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun is still the BEST! With the Mushroom sauce, Teeem Cheong, Lat Chiew and all the PoWer sauce, it's heaven.
It's horrible to even taste those in Penang. I can't imagine HAR KOU on the wonderful Chee Cheong Fun. It's stinko man!
