No visit to Perak is complete without a stop at the famous “Ngap Thui Meen” at the “Pun Chun” restaurant in Bidor, Perak. The “Ngap Thui Meen” is actually a duck drumstick cooked in herbal soup and served together with “wantan mee” noodles.
Almost everyone who visits Bidor will order the famous duck drumstick noodles, I prefer the simple “Char Siu Wantan Mee” available at the same restaurant which I would rate to be one of the best around where the Char Siu is the reddish coloured type unlike the dark coloured ones you normally find in the Klang Valley. The “Wantan” at Pun Chun is absolutely the best. You can taste the crunchy prawns and I would purposely detour to Bidor just for the “Wantan”.
The restaurant also sells a wide variety of local delicacies and cakes along with the famous Kampar Chicken biscuits and Bidor Tau Sar Piah along with the Heong Peng from Penang or the dodol from Malacca. To me, these items are more of a tourist trap but nevertheless, it is very popular and you will find the KLites raving over their purchases.
To get there, just turn off the North South Highway at the Bidor Interchange, proceed to a T-Junction, turn right to Bidor town. Look out the “Pun Chun Restaurant” on your right. If you reached a petrol station on your right, you have just missed it.
Check out their “Wantan” or their “Ngap Thui Meen”. You won’t regret it.
