Bidor, Perak

Bidor, is a tranquil little town about 45 minutes away from the Ipoh, capital of Perak state.

Perhaps the most famous things in Bidor are the Chinese Chicken Biscuits and the Duck Noodles.

Since I had to travel to Taiping to attend Court, I stayed over at Grandpa and Forth Uncle’s place at Bidor. Granpa’s over 90 years old now. I was a little bit worried that when he sees me, he would say..”Who are you?”.

Fortunately, he didn’t. But he gave me a “who-are-you?” stare. I’m sure I will miss him after he’s gone :s

So after attending Taiping Court, I went back to Bidor to get some biscuits from the famous Pun Chun Chicken Biscuits and Restaurant.


My favourite!

As I was walking out from the restaurant, I saw a chap having a bowl of duck noodles. Although I had chee cheong fun, dunkit donuts and wantan mee prior to that, I decided to give the duck noodles a go.

I did a search on google and found that:-

tried the Duck Noodles as well. Everyone gave positive comments about it. However, to me, although the duck and the soup were fantastic, the noodles were so-so. The noodles were first soaked in to hot water and thereafter mixed into the soup. Although this is a common method, I find this method made the noodles tasteless. They should use a different type of noodle i.e. min sin (long and short very fine Vermicelli.).
