#49: Foh San Dim Sum, Ipoh

Their siew mai was very good... infused with the fragrance and taste of pork.

Apparently the owners of the place come down everyday to tend to customers.

The Lady Boss is a grumpy-looking old lady who speaks quickly in short sentences but with awesome customer service . (She's a walking contradiction, I know.)
She refills our tea, packs our food to go, clears the table, etc.

She asks my friend in Canto, "要什么?!“ (What do you need?!)

Friend: "我要纸袋打包" (I want to tapao our food...)
**that place is self-service oriented so you had to get the doggie bags yourself)

Lady Boss: "不用。我帮你。".(No need. I'll do it for you)

Friend: "什么?“ (I'm sorry, I can't hear you)

Lady Boss' Staff: "我的事头婆会帮你“ (My Boss will pack it for you)

Lady Boss: "不要酱讲“ (Don't say that.)
**for referring to her as his Boss

Foh San is kinda overly glamoured, hence the elaborate deco for a dim sum place!

There is one right opposite Foh San, call Ming Court, it's pretty small you need to share the big tables if you are in a small group but it's cheaper and just about the same in taste!
