Ho Fun Restaurant @ SS2

Used to be called Lou Wong Ipoh Hor Fun under the previous ownership, the Ipoh Hor Fun back was much nicer. Even their pork dumpling aka sui kow tasted very homemade. Their first shop was at the same row of Kayu Nasi Kandar in SS2 Cheow Yang area and then another one in Taman Tun. Not too sure if the two shops still exist but after the new owner took over, quality wise dropped a little. Probably because the previous owner business was run by family members whereas the new owner employs foreign workers.

But on a hot hot day, I just don't have the mood to have soup noodle at normal coffeeshop so we normally opt for air-conditoned eateries such as Restoran Ho Fun at SS2, the row of shophouses directly behind Ee Yan Sang and facing the field.

My bowl of Ipoh Hor Fun Soup (RM4.80) came with few slices of shredded chicken breast and 2 pieces of prawns. No quantity control as sometimes they give 3 pieces of prawns instead of 2. But the rice noodle is really smooth, just like those you get from Ipoh. Actually, the soup is not too bad, definately better than some con hawker stalls which claim they are selling ipoh hor fun but tasted just like normal chicken soup noodle.

Hubby always opt for their dry version of ipoh hor fun (RM4.80) so that he could pour lots of chilli sauce into it. Oh yes, Hubby is a chilli sauce addict.

I always enjoy their bubble tea which came in a variety of flavour. My favourite is the Passion Fruit Bubble Tea (can't remember RM3.50 or RM4.50). It tasted like passion fruit flavoured milkshake...very refreshing for a crazy hot day like today. Their beverages are very reasonably priced!

Apart from Hor Fun, they also have rice and noodle with roast pork, bbq pork, steamed chicken, curry laksa as well as other side dishes like dumpling, meatballs and veggies. Aiii..nothing beats the Hor Fun in Ipoh though. Anyone know where else I could find good Ipoh Hor Fun in PJ area??

Am not addicted to chilli sauce. But being a Malaccan, its quite normal to add chilli sauce to our dry noodles, including wan tan mee. Its a different kind of chilli sauce though.. more like chee cheong fun type of chilli sauce. Hehehe

Yeah, the one at Ching Hai is nice. The one at Asiacafe Subang also not too bad, but find the soup not hot enough.

By the way, here's wishing you Gong Xi Fa Chai! May there be abundance of blessing, prosperity and longevity for all!
