Thum's Western Food (2nd Visit), Ipoh

Quickie post now, to prevent dementia from setting in. After the first round rave & rant about possibly my favourite Western food joint in Ipoh currently, Thum's Western Food, I've decided to spread the love and infected my family to go for another round. (Btw, this was a week or 2 ago, my apologies if my memory fails me) =P
This time around, I was a man-on-a-mission. I knew what I had to order. Half Cheese Mussels. And of course, the mysterious concoction aptly named ... Teh C Special.

3-layered drink called Teh C Special (RM2)

The tea came in a glass, separated into 3 distinctive layers. The top part is the tea, middle part being evaporated milk and the bottom part was a dark black layer. Hmm, initially I assumed it was coffee, but then one sip, and surprise, surprise! It was gula melaka (coconut sugar)! Strange combination but it worked wonders. Being a caffeine addict myself, the smooth, milky tea was up my alley, and one of the better Teh C I've tasted.

Chicken Maryland (RM10) ... Simply a carnivore's wet dreams ...

Dad ordered Chicken Maryland, batter-fried til crispy, and the meat was juicy, not dry, served with their signature (I supposed) onion sauce. With a slice of ham, a sausage, ONION RINGS, French fries, cucumber slices and toasted butter bread (Whew ...), the portion can be slightly intimidating at first. But Dad loves his meat, and in a matter of minutes, whoosh .... empty plate.

Half Cheese Mussels (RM13)

After a long, dreadful (I was salivating at the other's chicken chops, fish and chips, maryland) wait, my mussels finally arrived! With LOTS of onion rings, fried to perfection, I'd give up my mussels for a few plateful more of the rings, ANYTIME! Not to say the mussels were bad, mind you. Half a dozen were deep-fried in batter, with cheese powder and cheddar, the big, plump, juicy morsels were just great. Moreover they were very fresh and sweet. No sauce required. But the trophy STILL went to the humble ONION RINGS !!!! =)

Location? Pls refer to my first post HERE.

Wow, seems like the onion ring really got your vote! Too bad this place is far from us, if not we would definitely try it out! :)
