Pun Chun

Bidor used to be a stopover town for interstate traffic before the opening of North-South Expressway. Perhaps the most well-known eatery in Bidor is Pun Chun Restaurant (品珍酒楼). The shop is renowned for iconic pastries like Chicken Biscuits (鸡仔饼) and Shai Kek Ma (萨骑马).
Pun Chun serves noodle dishes too. A bowl of Duck Drumstick Mee (鸭肉云吞面, RM11.30) consists of double boiled herbal soup, duck drumstick and handmade wan ton mee. Food taste has somewhat improved since our previous visit, but still falls short of satisfaction.
There is also a dry version of Duck Drumstick Mee where the noodle is seasoned with soy sauce. Meanwhile, the herbal soup and duck drumstick are served separately. The soup is similar but is slightly thicker.
As for beverages, we had Kopi O (RM1.40) and Teh C (RM1.40). The aromas of coffee and tea are not strong enough. Overall, the drinks in Pun Chun leave a great deal to be desired.
A meal for two costs RM26.90. This is considerably expensive given the restaurant's location and ambience. The saving grace is the improved food taste than before. In addition, the shop is not so crowded on weekdays.
