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.
