After our lunch at Sushi Tomo, outside still heavy rain, so we decided to proceed to next door to continue our chit-chatting session. Swensen's is just a few foot from Sushi Tomo. The last time I dine here is about more than 10 years ago. I think that time Swensen's can consider as one of the pioneer Ice Cream Restaurant.

I have plan to made JB my first 2013 Cari-cari Makan Trip. This long planning trips supposed is on Chinese New Year but I head down to JB few week earlier for some other matters. So, even though this is not a Makan-makan trip, I still manage to add some good food inside my itinerary. So this time, I decided to put everything inside 1 post, and here my long story...
We start our long journey quite late. So not to wasted our time, we just stop at Restoran Jejantas Ayer Keroh Melaka for lunch. I had the Nasi Lemak Biasa that worth RM3.80. I seldom eat at any PLUS Highway R&R place because it is dirty. But maybe today is weekday the environment is better. The sambal is nice and slightly spicy.

After Leaning Tower at Teluk Intan, we said Goodbye to Perak. On the way back to Kepong, we passby Kuala Selangor. So what to do, we end our day with Seafood Feast at Kuala Selangor. At first we though to go to Riverview Seafood, but somehow suddenly we saw this restaurant, Makanan Laut Kuala Sungai.
After the rain stop, we immediately proceed to the Leaning Tower or "Menara Condong". This is the Leaning Tower in Teluk Intan and not the famous Pisa in Italy. Our Leaning Tower is located in the centre of the town of Teluk Intan, Perak. The tower is slanted leftward, with 25.5 metres tall. From outside, its looks like a 8 storey building, though inside it is actually divided into 5 storeys.
After left Ipoh, we decided to drive to Teluk Intan just to have a look at the Leaning Tower LOL! It take us more than 1 hour to reach Teluk Intan. Once we saw the Leaning Tower, immediately rain..haiz. So no choice, we need to find somewhere for us to hang around while the rain stop. I search online see what we can have now and our final decision is here, Rojak Ah Chai.
After exploring the Caves Temple at Ipoh, we back to hotel to check-out. Before we proceed to our lunch we drop by Funny Mountain to try the famous soyabean milk and curd (Tau Foo Fah) at Ipoh. Located just nearby Lou Wong Tauge Chicken Rice, Funny Mountain is just a very small corner shop. In fact the service area is just within the very small space infront the shop.
After the heavy breakfast, we visited 2 temple before we left Ipoh. Limestone cave temples is very popular in Ipoh. We started exploring Kek Look Tong 极乐洞 (Cave Kek Look), a natural limestone cave with beautiful faura and fauna in Ipoh. Opened in the 1970s, the temple is set in a huge cave in the limestone outcrops behind Gunung Rapat, about 5km south of Ipoh City.
After dinner at Lou Wong we walk around the nigth market in the same area. Unfortunately it is heavy rain and we stopped by a dessert shop to wait for the rain stop. After the rain stop, we go to Tuck Kee to have some supper. Honestly all of us is not hungry, just feel so tempted to try their famous Yuet Kwong Hor (Moonlight Flat Noodle) and Steam Baby Octopus that is introduce by Astro AEC; Taste with Jason.
Restoran Pun Chun in Bidor, Perak is a must-stop destination for all good food lover. This is also a place for tourist to stopped by while heading to the north. Well-known for its Duck Drumstick Noodle, Pun Chun also sell local famous biscuit, petai and etc.
After breakfast at Yik Mun Tanjung Malim we drove to Sg Klah Hot Spring at Sungkai via Plus Highway. Its take less then 1 hour to reach Sungkai Toll exist but our GPS guide us to the wrong way!! Really "Guna Pun Sesak (GPS)"!! After the toll exist, just follow the Felda Hot Spring Signage.
We plan for a vacation to Ipoh, Perak quite sometimes and finally we make it before 2013. This 2D1N exploring Perak trip is my 2012 final Cari-cari Makan Trip. As what we know nothing much we can do at Ipoh so we add in a lot of stopped by place before we reach Ipoh. Our first stop for breakfast is at Yik Mun in Tanjung Malim, Perak. Yik Mun is famous with the pau and simple Hainanese food to the local. It is also a popular spot for tourists who stopped by for a cuppa or simple food before heading to the north. Located at the corner shop lot on Jalan Slim River, Tanjung Malim, Yik Mun has been certified halal, and now serves mostly Malay dishes.
