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.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Yam paste Mooncake ~ 2018 ~ 芋头月饼

It's that time of the year once again and there are Mooncakes galore at all the shopping malls and supermarkets.  The Mid-autumn Mooncake festival falls  on 24th September, this year.  This round, I'm sharing with you mooncakes with homemade yam paste.  Homemade yam paste is moist and sugar level can be controlled.  These mooncakes do not have a 'waiting period'  which is  ( 回油)  and can be eaten on the day they are baked.  Best to consume within four days.
