“Die Die Must Try” dishes for serious foodies
The latest “hot” item to hit the Foodie market which you will find in many of the top Chinese restaurants in Ipoh is the Common Ice Plant or Mesembryanthemum crystallinum.
When it first arrived on the table, I was taken aback wondering why we’re getting raw greens on a plate in Sun Lee How Fook, a top-rated Chinese restaurant. Served with a sesame dip, the greens were delectable. Crispy and cold, it looked to be frozen, yet I was told that they were fresh. I couldn’t get enough of it!
Refreshingly crunchy, apparently this perennial succulent has medicinal properties and is now making waves among the gourmet crowd. Do check it out at Sun Lee How Fook and Crab House but ask for the price first; RM20 per plate.
And while at Sun Lee How Fook do order their Truffle Fried Rice. This is one of those “Die Die, Must Try” dishes. Rice fried with real black truffles, topped with dried fried scallops, and embellished with pine nuts, this is one dish that has become a must-have dish here; RM50/RM100 S/L.
