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.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
