Hi, I’m back from Chinese New Year celebration. Was back to Ipoh and Kuala Kangsar on 6th noon for 4 days Chinese New Year break. Traffic fortunately was smooth on New Year Eve but my friends and I were stucked in jam on highway on the fourth day when we were on the way back and it took us 4 hours to reach KL. How about you?
Before I write about the happenings at home, I shall put this up first. Was at Sri Petaling one Sunday morning with two friends for breakfast before heading to Mid Valley for bargain-hunt (aka shopping) as they say they wanna eat Kai Woh Pao.
So, this is the Kai Woh Pao. Slightly smaller than tai pao and lighter too but at first sight, we thought of one thing; lor mai kai wrapped in pau! Well, at least it looks like that and tastes similar too. There’s sliced Chinese sausage, caramelised onion, mushroom and diced chicken meat. Taste wise, it’s a bit bland and the lor mai (pulut) was a bit hard.
The common item to have on every table (Jackson loves this) – siew mai. The siew mai were quite good with sufficient amount of pork and fish paste and the skin was not too thick or dry.
We were surprised that they serve the mini “fatt putt” (yam basket) here with sweet and sour pork in the middle, similar with the one Joe had in Sri Kembangan. The yam casing were similar to the yam puff, fine texture, fluffy and light but I find the sweet and sour pork a bit hard to chew.
And lastly, we wanna have char siew bao (barbeque pork bun) but the waitress brought us the wrong item. Instead of char siew bao, she brought us the black pepper chicken pao. We don’t know about it till we bite in it and realised it’s not what we ordered. At first, my friend wanna ask them to change it but after all the earlier food, we were quite stuffed and decided not to do that. The spiciness was a mild one and there’s just chicken and onions in it. Taste wise, still acceptable.
Overall, it’s not a fantastic place for dim sum and the price were quite high too. The meal costs RM60+ for the three of us. But if you’re looking for something new, you may want try the kai woh pao.
