EARLY DIM SUM IN RESTORAN FOH SAN,IPOH

When we checked into Hotel Excelsior Ipoh, the receptionist informed us about  Restoran Foh San which is famous for dim sum and  if we are game for it, we must arrive there at 6am to avoid any queue. 
So next the morning, we woke up at 530am and walked to the restaurant which is situated just right behind the hotel .  Upon arriving at the restaurant entrance, we were told the business hour starts at 630 am.   Even though the sky is still dark, we saw few elderly couples chatting away and many elderly ladies clocked in for work.

At 630 am sharp, the restaurant open its door to the  customers and within 10 minutes, most of the tables was occupied.  

Ordering food is quite simple. Every 5-10 minutes, a female server with a push trolley will  stop at your table and you can choose your choice of dim sum.  We selected seven types of dim sum and digested with a pot of chinese hot tea at RM31.80 only. 
A MUST...a pot of  chinese hot tea
Fried Prawn Roll
the beancurd skin was crispy with fresh shrimp unfold inside
Prawn Dumpling
my all time favourite...sweet and juicy prawns enveloped inside translucent skin
Parsley Dumpling
tucked inside the 'green' skin are succulent combo of  minced prawns + pork meat
Steamed Fish Ball
Bouncy and flavorful

Steamed Chicken Glutinous Rice
very addictive...soft  glutinous rice  steamed with aromatic char siew, chicken meat and black mushroom

Fried Prawn Dumpling
moist inner layer with fresh shrimps
Nam Yue/Fermented Red Beancurd Pork Bun
Star of the day....stuffed with fragrant and tender  pork belly meat which melts in the mouth


Oh ya, we even take away a set of nam yue pau and prawn dumpling at RM8.70 for my mom who is still sleeping soundly inside the hotel room.....

Well, this was a good dim sum and worth our effort to wake up so early in the morning when most of the people are still cuddling in bed. Eventhough, the hotel serves free complimentary buffet breakfast but it did not justify our tastebuds.
