Born an Ipoh girl, I am quite sensitive to the taste of food. I may not be a good food critic but I am able to tell you what is good and what is not. As a dim sum lover, I respect food and my palate so going to an average restaurant is definitely a no-no. I would normally recommend the dim sum restaurants in Ipoh when out-of-towners want to know more about the food culture in Ipoh. Being rigid enough, I did not believe in food innovations as I always thought that only the traditional type of eateries can give you a real taste on the food. However, I was proven wrong when I was taken to this little dim sum shop which offers both traditional and innovative dim sums.
Shall I rename this place as Dim Sum Cafe?
