Foh San

Before we checked in to Sentosa Villa, we stopped at Ipoh for lunch.

Restaurant that furnished a snap into my mind immediately that time ~ The legendary Foh San!

It was my virgin visit to Foh San so you can imagine how anticipate I am since there has been so much rave & enthusiasm going about. This new double storey building is spacious, bright an sparingly decorated with framed Chinese calligraphy.

Equipped with plenty of ceiling fans & air-conditioners.


Service was prompt & we got our Chinese tea served in a jiffy after our order.

烧卖 Siew Mai (Pork Dumpling)

Quite decent with firm & tasty pork filling.

虾饺 Har Gau (Prawn Dumpling)

With fresh & bouncy prawn filling.


芋角 Wu Kok (Yam Puff)

Crispy exterior, smooth yam paste & the savory char siew filling = an impeccable combination! Most important it was not greasy/oily at all!


叉烧包 Char Siew Bao (BBQ Pork Bun)

Fluffy & soft bun encased the sweet & sticky char siew filling, oh I like this!


虾卷 Fried Prawn Roll

Deep fried beancurd sheet with prawn & pork filling was a bit oily~


蒸排骨 Steamed Spare Ribs

A must order for me whenever I have dim sum & I’m quite picky on it too.  Foh San version was on a stellar level in my humble opinion as the ribs were tender & infused with flavorful and enticing marinade. I love the fermented black beans 😛


It really surprised me when I found diced yam underneath the ribs! I never see this at any dim sum restaurant at KL!


马来糕 Ma Lai Gou

Fluffy & light with some kuaci bites, I love this too!


Take Away Counter


Verdict: Overall a pleasant dining experience~  good & decent dim sum, reasonable price & prompt service.
