By now, this dim sum mammoth needs no introduction at all. Its name is pretty much synonymous and/or tied to Ipoh dim sum. While the some locals detest them, most tourists from other states will flock to this place for breakfast. And while there are other dim sum joints in the city, Foh San dominates the dim sum scene due to its sheer size and history.
I’ve visited them twice but I still can’t find what’s the big hoo haa about it. Sure, the portion is significant bigger so is the restaurant size. But some how, the taste does not strike the chord, mine at least.
On the recent visit, the prawn dumplings were off while the egg tarts… Let’s just say the ones at Nam Heong are way better than them. The Siew Mai was a-okay although it was slightly salty. The rest were just meh… The only commendable ones that worth going for were the BBQ pork bun and Chee Cheong Fun.
So… is it just one off or me… or have their quality deteriorated?
