Dim Sum Brunch at Li Yuan ~ 荔苑点心茶楼


Saturday, being a public holiday, we took the opportunity to  have brunch at Li Yuan Dim Sum restaurant.  There are quite a number of  dim sum restaurants in Ipoh  and I've passed by this shop a couple of times but only decided to give this a try at the recommendation of my neighbour.  The shop is not very spacious and as it was close to lunch time, we were lucky to find a table for the two of us.



Pan-fried Carrot Cake - Rm 4.00.  Very tasty especially with their 'homebrand' chilli sauce.



These fish balls were delicious, tasted a bit different from what I've tasted at other dim sum joints.



Steamed Pork Dumpling with Fish fillet - Rm4.80.
This was the chef's recommendation for he concocted the bunga kantan/ginger flower sauce, only available here in this restaurant.  Yummy!



Steamed Beancurd Rolls with BBQ sauce  - Rm4.00



Steamed Coco flavoured buns with Salted Egg - Rm5.00 for 3 pcs  (Lau  Sar Pau)
But these two were complimentary for us to try.  So kind of the chef!



Steamed Mango Buns, the filling had a good mango flavour  - Rm4.80 for 3 pcs



A dim sum meal cannot be complete without having tried their 'Char Siew Pau'.  I like them for the filling was all lean pork and to my surprise I couldn't detect any bits of fatty pork!   This is indeed a plus point.

They do have noodles on their menu.   Noodles are made by them and again all the sauces are the chef's own concoction.  Will definitely try them on my next visit.

  1. Hi Cheah,

    Everything looks very delicious in this place. Comparing from what we are eating here in Melbourne, the price is of course very very very reasonable :p

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Steamed Tofu ~ Beancurd

'Steamed Tofu' ~ Beancurd is always a hot favourite with my family whenever we eat out ...... nutritious and for easy digestion especially with oldies around.  For more information on  'Tofu'   read here.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
