Ipoh Road Trip 2011: Yik Mun @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

During the Raya break, my hengtais, me and our respective partners made a trip down to Ipoh for a one night trip. It’s been a while since our last trip which was Tioman Island. This time round, the adventure was no where near our Tioman Island adventure. If you may recall, my hengtais and I took a 8 hours boat ride to Tioman Island using a fisherman’s boat.

This trip, like any other trips, was all about eating. Our first stop was Yik Mun, a restaurant famous for its halal paos (steamed buns). It was established in 1926. I recall when I was a kid, my Dad brought me here for breakfast whenever we head back to his hometown in Bidor.

So anyway, my friends and I ordered their kaya, chicken and beef and Chicken chop. I only tried their kaya pao and I find it mediocre. There wasn’t much kaya fillings. The pao near my house is much better :p

However, their chicken chop is good. It comes with thick gravy, fresh tomatoes and mash potatoes. This is probably the highlight for me.

The only complaint that I have about this place is their bill. We were charged for paos that did not arrive and also additional paos. Fortunately, KF spotted this error and the cashier made adjustment to our bill. Those who eat here should remember how many paos they have eaten. I wonder if it’s a method for them to make extra money – since 1926. XD
