Amongst all the Chee Cheong Fun variations, you name it-Hong Kong style commonly found at dim sum places, Kampar style curry chee cheong fun, Ipoh style that comes with mushroom sauce and even KL style CCF that is accompanied with Yong Tau Foo, my all time favourite has got to be the Teluk Intan style. Without the sauce that might at times be overwhelming, the very texture of the rice rolls can easily be subjected to the scrutiny of the fussy taste buds of mine (lol!). We headed out to the the famous Liew Kee (Ah Lek) Chee Cheong Fun strongly recommended by the locals.

Tastes distinctly different from the KL rendition of Teluk Intan style Chee Cheong Fun. The rice texture is definitely more prominent here.

Perak, or to be specific, Teluk Intan and Ipoh are well known for their heong peah(fragrant biscuits).  Before heading back to KL, we decided to grab the number one Teluk Intan delicacy. The very same local who introduced us to Liew Kee also strongly recommended us to buy from Sin Guan Tin instead of the ‘Tiger’ brand that is more popular with tourists.
