Kedai Kopi Mee Bon @ Jalan Ipoh
Today met up with an old friend from Chennai since he was visiting Malaysia and we planned to have dinner together. Initially, I was planning perhaps to take him to some Indian Restaurant here but guess what, he asked if we can go for some Dim Sum.
Mee Boon Coffee Shop
Such a surprise to me. Well, since we were already in Jalan Ipoh, decided to head to one of my favorite joins here which serves good Dim Sum....Mee Boon Coffee Shop. This outlet is located in 3rd Mile, Jalan Ipoh, just opposite Million Gardens. Finding it is not difficult as it is mostly crowded with rows of cars illegally parked along the road side.
Assortment of Dim Sum to choose from
Once here, we were ushered to a table and then a guy came bringing an assortment of Dim Sums for us to choose. One peculiar thing which I observed at this restaurant is that somehow, they only bring it once. I have had previous experiences where when we wanted to top up the dishes, it is somehow so difficult to get them back to our table and they always seem to be passing the responsibility. To save us the time and hassle, we ordered our dishes in one go.
More Dim Sum
The dishes here are really good. Another two items which I would recommend here is the Char Siew Pau and and Loh Mai Kai. Both of these are very good too.
The Herbal Tea
Also to note is the herbal tea, it is made just the right way and with the correct sweetness. A must try here too. On the whole we had a good dinner here and the price was not too expensive. For 9 plates of Dim Sun, we paid RM 40.00 . They have standard rates which are printed on the order sheet itself. So before hand, you would be able to know your total bill and no confusions here.
