Herbal Duck Soup Noodles in Ipoh @ Sin Kooi Yuen



I'm sure many of you Malaysians must have heard of and tasted the acclaimed herbal duck soup noodles from Pun Chun Restaurant in Bidor, Perak.  Recently a friend recommended me a shop also selling the herbal duck soup noodles, wantan noodles, etc right here in Ipoh.  We took the opportunity to pay a visit to Restoran Sin Kooi Yuen @ Taman Rishah,  and tried their signature herbal duck soup noodles.  If you're not a fan of duck meat, you can opt for herbal chicken soup noodles and they also serve siu kow/dumplings, a variety of yong tau fu, fried foo pei, stuffed sengkuang/turnips, curry chicken and BBQ meat noodles and braised chicken feet.  The marvellous thing is that most of them are all homemade by the lady proprietress!


You're spoilt for choice looking at what they have to offer!


Their signature herbal duck soup served in a ceramic bowl.  Whole drumstick, well marinated and steamed with Chinese herbs, like tong sum, pak kei, red dates, dried longan and goji berries.  The meat is tender and soft and the soup tasty and delicious.  All of us, five in number, opined that this is much better than the one served at Pun Chun!


Dried wantan noodles (home made) served in light and black soya sauce with some 'chee yau char' or deep fried pork lard.


We ordered some sui kow/dumplings to try .... the skin was thin with a generous amount of pork filling.


Also had some wan tan soup.


An assortment of deep fried bean curd sheet with fish filling/foo pei, bitter gourd and brinjal.


Pork and fish balls, and foo pei in soup.        


Tasty and  tender braised chicken feet.


Reasonable price list.


The plucky lady proprietress, Mdm Chow Lai Har gets up at 5 a.m. each morning to prepare all these goodies to serve her customers.  If you're in Ipoh, you needn't have to travel all the way to Bidor to satisfy your craving for herbal duck soup noodles.  Do give Sin Kooi Yuen a try.  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Sticky rice cake with red bean paste ~ 芝麻豆沙饼

I love red bean, be it  in kuih, mooncakes, rice dumpling or other pastries with red bean paste filling.   This was my first attempt at making the red bean paste from scratch and had to admit that it was really very time consuming.  Nonetheless this sticky rice cake or glutinous rice cake with red bean paste, was indeed very delicious especially when taken fresh from the pan.  I like it that it was not deep-fried but pan-fried with very little oil when using a non-stick pan.  Great to snack on with a good old cup of hot Chinese tea!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
