A Quickie Dinner at Tambun Chan Heng Restaurant, Sunway City Ipoh

It was around dinner time when we passed through Ipoh, on my way back to Penang during the recent Chinese New Year holidays. My wife suggested that we stopped by in Ipoh for a quick meal before continuing our journey. I took the first exit near Ipoh and ended up at Jalan (Road) Tambun. Actually I wanted to go to Bercham and should have driven further up north to the Bercham exit. Anyway, it was dark and I was not very familiar with the road around here. I missed the left turn to Jalan Perajurit, so I just stop by the next restaurant that I come across near Giant Hypermarket Tambun. Chan Heng is just a simple Kopitiam (coffee shop) type of restaurant and we sat down to order our meal. We requested for Ham Choy Thong(Salted Vegetable Soup), Orange Chicken, Homemade tofu with minced meat and Stir fried Cauliflower with Broccoli. The total bill plus drinks for 5 adults and one toddler came up to be RM49 (USD14). Here are the photos and review of the dishes we had.
I love the savoury and sour Ham Choy Thong. The serving is quite generous as well. The main ingredients are fish cake, parsley, fish ball, tomato, preserved plums and salted vegetable. A good way to get the stomach ‘engine’ started after a long journey from KL, so that I can eat more! LOL!
We decided to try Orange Chicken instead of the usual Lemon Chicken. The Orange Chicken is surprisingly tasty. My kids love it very much. The citrus orange aroma sure blend well with the crispy fried chicken and the sauce has a well balanced taste of sweetness with a little sourness of the orange juice.
These are homemade tofu. The texture is smooth and soft and I love the sauce that accompanied the tofu.
My kids love cauliflower and broccoli, so we ordered this dish for them. The crunchy vegetables are well fried with prawns and fresh too!
