Bee Home Cafe (Sharon’s Laksa) @ IpohOctober 28, 2009 | 3,846 views
27 March 2010 – Sadly, this cafe has moved/relocated/closed. The premise is occupied by a Wan Stop Cafe now. I have no idea yet, on where Sharon’s Laksa has moved to, or are they still operating. Anyone?
4 June 2010 – Sharon’s Laksa is not operating from any premises. But you can contact her through this number : 012-518 5562 for small parties, catering services and such. She still cooks for such occasions.
Bee Home Cafe(Sharon’s Laksa) @ Taman Ipoh Perdana
Those with an exceptionally stellar memory would be able to recall my previous post on Sharon’s Laksa, inclusive of my constant rants with regards to the weekends-only Siam Laksa, and the other dishes I sampled way back before I even moved to my new domain here. (You can of course, choose to relive those good old days of viewing my blogposts against the black background HERE)
Home Made Pan Mee (RM6.90) – Wednesdays Special
But of course, the feedbacks from the gluttons (or eager & hungry ones) who have paid this charming cafe a visit ranged from the positive/glowing ones to the not-so-favourable replies. But indeed, credits to be given where they’re due, Sharon’s Laksa had only been operating for a few months, hence QC (quality control) aspects may not be in check YET, but rest assured the lady boss herself (an affable Sharon Chin) is constantly on the prowl, doing check and balance while still whipping up a storm. The Siamese Laksa recipe belongs to her, by the way.
Home Made Prawn Mee (RM5.90) – Mondays Specials
They extended their opening hours to a 12 hours slot, from 11am onwards, catering to both the lunch and dinner crowds, and everything else in between. So you know you CAN grab a bite if you’re feeling peckish come tea time, or later at night.
Two items have been added into their menu, the first being the much-appreciated (by my grandma, no less) Pan Mee, or flat flour noodles literally torn into thick pieces and cooked in a most relished, sweet yet savoury soup base, then served with crunchy anchovies (you can choose to have them served separately to preserve the crunchiness), thinly-sliced black fungus, shiitake mushrooms and sweet potato leaves (correct me if I’m wrong). The thicker than usual noodles ensured a chewy, or most referred to as QQ texture. However, I’m no fan of pan mee served this way, but instead like mine to be long, in strands, and served dry; tossed with some soy sauce.
Another addition to their ever-expanding repertoire of dishes is the Home Made Prawn Mee, which scored rather well with everyone’s tastebuds. You can request for more chilly paste, rendering your bowl of noodles with a reddish hue (for aesthetic purposes, and of course, tormenting that palate like every spicy food lover should!), or hold the fiery kick, in case you’re serving the bowl of noodles to an elderly or someone with IBD. Which brought to mind a few close friends. Hehe … but I won’t divulge the details, to protect my own welfare.
Fried Dumplings (Wantan) – Firm, and packed with finely-minced chicken meat, the morsels make good snacks while waiting for your mains.
Chunks of mackerel mashed and served with the tangy, spicy and gastric juices a-churning Assam Laksa
Fried Lai Fun ( RM5.90) – A Thursdays only special
They still serve the Siamese Laksa on weekends only (RM5.90 per serving), while the Assam Laksa is available on a daily basis. The Fried Lai Fun (lai fun being long strands of rice noodles, used in Laksa mostly) arrived with a splendour of ingredients, ranging from the usual shrimps and chicken meat, to sliced fish cakes, eggs, and carrots.
Bee Home Rojak (RM6.90)
Sharon makes her own Rojak sauce, sprinkled liberately with toasted sesame seeds and chopped peanuts for that extra crunch. More sweet-ish than spicy, the sauce goes down well with the children and again, those not keen on torching their tongues. Served with cuts of pineapple, cucumber, yambean, and raw mangoes.
Bee Home Jelly (RM2.90) – Resembled the famous Chinese dessert of Gui Ling Gao, the jelly was served with some honey, a Bee Home Cafe’s specialty
And the other desserts to end the meal on a sweet note – Toast with Honey, Bee Home Pancake (RM5.90), Garlic Butter Toast, and Pisang Goreng with Honey (RM3.90)
The list of the beverages we had that evening :
Pure Honey (RM3.90), Coffee Cincau Ice (RM3.30), Honey Lemon Ice (RM4.10), Honey Jasmine Sour Plum Tea (RM5.70), Honey Milk (RM5.90) and Honey Cincau (RM3.90)
