Chinese Curry Mee Hor Fun

Ipoh Cravings Cafe @ Damansara Uptown, PJ – Yummy!

I was in the area two nights back and decided to drop by Uptown to see if there was anything I fancy having for dinner here. As I was driving around the square, I came across Ipoh Cravings – which piqued my interest. Apparently, they have been around for 7,8 month? I know for a fact that I was here last month and the month before but I somehow missed the existence of this cafe. Perhaps this is because I almost never enter Uptown to ‘jalan jalan’, there is always a purpose – to buy some thing at a specific shop and leave immediately, so, it is easy to miss this or any other eatery when I was not looking around in the first place but I am glad this time, I did and found Ipoh Cravings. Better late than never.


I like the feel of this cafe. It’s a kopitiam inspired slightly modern-ish eatery. They had the white + green theme going on – right from the signboard outside and all through the interior inside. Customer service was great, they were all friendly and welcoming and food arrived real fast.Β 

** Do keep in mind that if you are heading here for dinner, like I did – some of the items on the Menu would be sold out. I wanted to give their Hainanese Chicken Rice (Breast) a try – sold out. Homemade Tau Foo Fah – sold out, Black Glutinous Rice with Santan – sold out. I did check with them, whether the items were really sold out or if it is actually a case of them not serving it for the day and they assured me that it was truly sold out. So, I guess if these items tickles your fancy, perhaps make you way here earlier in the day as oppose to nearing closing time.

Chicken Hor Fun

Their Curry Mee was nice, yummy. i love thick ‘curry’ and the one here was pretty good. It was not overloaded with santan and the flavoring of the curry shined. There was some heat, some spice – the right amount to allow you a taste of those much welcomed flavors but not overwhelming in a way that makes you sweat – get what I mean? Not that I do not enjoy a good sweat but not at nightlah. There was those soggy tauhu that I liked, about 4 of them, yay! Just having them tauhu in your mouth and as soon as you bite down on them and the soup just burst out of them – yummmmm! The chicken was the shredded version – steamed chicken sreadded into smaller pieces? Yup those ones, they were soft, juicy and meaty, a good addition.Β 

The Hor Fun was apparently one of their popular dishes. I am one of those weirdos who do not like Hor Fun and I still dont. So, I cannot comment much on this dish but my friend liked it. For a simple noodle dish, nothing fancy, just something simple for the night – the Hor Fun was pretty good. He did add however that perhaps it would have tasted even better if we ordered the ‘soupy’ version as opposed to the ‘dry’ version.Β Β 


Would I head here again?

Yesss, I would. I amΒ  looking forward to giving their Chicken Rice a try πŸ™‚
