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.

White Bihoon/Rice vermicelli ~ 白米粉

I was introduced to White Bihoon on my recent trip to Singapore and must admit that I have never heard of this before.  Back here, we have Hokkien fried bihoon which is brownish in colour or Cantonese braised bihoon which is bihoon deep fried and coated with an eggy sauce of meat, seafood and vegetables.  I was curious and I had my first taste of this popular White Bihoon at Jewel, Changi airport.  It's white, because no light or dark soya sauce was added to the bihoon, hence it's white.  It does tastes good with a light squeeze of calamansi. So, today I'm trying to replicate this dish and here's my version of White Bihoon.  Enjoy!
