The shop itself is not spacious, and even with extra tents outside of the shop to provide a cover over its customers' heads, you can expect the place to be fully crowded if you arrive after 7p.m., the usual dining hour for Ipoh folks. The shop will be so packed that you still feel hot and stuffy during the night. It is not advisable to arrive after 7, especially during weekends and holidays... trust me.
The beautifully named Phoenix Claws is a traditional Chinese name for the dish of braised chicken feet, served within a plate of delicious sauce. The leathery claws may not be the favourite of everyone, so make sure that there is at least a person from your table who enjoy it before you order this.
The sliced tentacles of octopuses (ask for ba jau yee, the Cantonese name of the dish) are served on a plate of oil based sauce in the company of sliced onion stalks and fried and ground garlic. The same note goes to this dish as well: some may feel queasy looking at this tentacled delicacy, so getting people who love it to accompany you may help getting your appetite up when you see people fighting to get the last tentacle.
