Last week, Jieqi brought me to Funan Wen, a Chinese restaurant that supposedly serves wonderful ipoh horfun (: Funan Wen is a stone's throw away from Once Upon A Milkshake, so you can visit both places (like we did) when you're in that area.
Regular lunch crowd. Thankfully, we managed to secure a seat despite the restaurant being very crowded! I think its convenient location, low prices and high quality food are the three important factors that draw the lunch crowd in.
Jieqi ordered the prawn with chicken ipoh horfun ($5.80). The dumplings were much larger than expected and more importantly, they taste good! I think this was just enough to suppress Jieqi's hunger pangs and to satisfy her craving for ipoh horfun (:
I chose to have mushroom & vegetable ipoh horfun ($5.20), which was what I had at Scotts foodcourt many many years ago. For the amount I paid, I didn't expect to see such a huge plate of food! I'm extremely pleased with the large servings of horfun, juicy succulent mushrooms and fresh green vegetables. In my opinion, there are two things that make this ipoh horfun an A dish: the horfun itself, which has a light springiness, and the horfun sauce, which had perfect consistency and taste. I thoroughly liked this simple yet satisfying meal.
Thanks Jieqi for introducing Funan Wen to me! (: It's real gem for ipoh horfun lovers.
