My daughter loves these…
…but since I became ultra-sensitive to msg, I’ve stopped going to the place where we used to go as I seem to feel uneasy after eating probably due to the excessive use of the stuff.
I’ve tried a number of other places but did not think they are up to the mark.
Pian sip, as these are called, are our local Foochow-style wantan but the skin is very different – whitish, thinner and soft – not chewy or firm as in the case of wantan skin. Cooking it, as in the case of kampua noodles as well, can be quite a challenge as you would need to do it just right – not overdone lest it becomes too soft and soggy.
The other day, I decided to try the ones here (RM2.50)…
…and I liked it a lot.
The meat looks a bit more substantial than at other places, the texture of the skin was just right and the amount of ingredients used to toss the pian sip as well. I also noticed that the lady adds chopped spring onions to the meat…
…which further enhances the taste of the pian sip and makes it nicer.
I certainly would take my daughter to this one when she comes home…

I was just about to ask u if it is da same as wantan..
I’ve touched on this before in previous posts as well…
and then i read that it is not… WOOT!!!!!!!!!!!! Me FIRST today! Fuiyoh! can go buy lottery! 😀
In essence, they’re the same but that’s where the similarity ends… 😉 Ya…what are you doing up so early this morning? Have you heard that Nuffnang Malaysia has been hacked? I’m not a Nuffnanger but every other person I know is. Dunno how they will be affected…or what precautionary measure they would have to take… You’re one of them too, right?
yep NN been hacked, but the pw i used there is kind of not used anywhere else, Will still change the password in NN for precautionary measures anyway.
Well, does not concern me as I’ve nothing to do with them. 😉
why not cook like that one on your own that way you are sure no msg will be added 🙂
We do that sometimes – buy the skin from the market, buy the minced meat and cook. But less of a hassle to just go out and it. After all, it’s only RM2.50 a bowl…plus the stack of skin – a whole lot…. Can’t possibly cook so much and such a waste to throw away.
ah ha….think what to eat for breakfast, then u post this..make me want to eat this but don`t know where to find this 😦
I guess you’ll just to go for wantan soup there…more or less the same as our pian sip soup. 😉
Is this like sui kow? I actually don’t like sui kow because there’s always prawns inside – not a prawn person. Does pian sip have prawns inside?
Oh? So that’s what you people do there. We have a kampua stall in Sibu – a West Malaysian selling char siew and all the roast meat and he sells kampua and pian sip too – but his pian sip has prawn inside – 50 sen each! Not cheap… I quite like it. So those are sui kow? Our original local pian sip only has meat (and some places – so very little), no prawns in them.
The wantan look so fresh! I love wantan noodle soup so much for breakfast 😉
Me too. I quite like wantan noodle soup…more than the dry version with the black sauce – not really a fan of that.
Is this the way to eat em? You sip the soup and chew the pian? muahahaha.
This is the dry version…no soup. Don’t actually what the name means…
I love these as well, probably not pian sip, since I’ve never tried one yet. But I love wantons! XD
Not very much different. Also nice. Come on over and you can try…
hahaha, here i see you mentioning about kampua noodles again!! hmmm, i guess i am right, at least one kampua every couple of days huh?? hehehe~~ nice wantons anyway, but i would rather prefer them in piping hot soup~~ 🙂
I love both but my daughter prefers the dry version. Kampua! Ah…just had very good kampua in Kanowit today – watch out for my post on it. LOL!!!
Hard to find good ones. Easier to cook it at home
They do not sell the skin…say, 10 pieces only. LOL!!!
Wantan, pian sip & kiaw…..to me, they are like “identical twins” . I can’t really differentiate between them. They are called differently in different places. I simply love it. Have a great weekend and go hunting for more food to post up!!!……
Pian sip and kiaw are more or less the same – wantan’s a bit different. The skin’s yellowish and firmer…
Too much MSG is bad for health. I can’t understand why some people place too much MSG on their dishes.
Wow. Wantan. This reminded me of the the one I ate in a fast food here.
It’s supposed to be a taste enhancer…and many people seem quite immune to it. They do not seem to mind at all and will say how tasty the food is…when it is all msg! Not for me, thank you very much! 😦
Ohhh… looks yummy… and the filling looks generous too. *grinz* I hear a lot of people having prob wif nuffnang, but not me. I dun even have an account with nuffnang. Hehehehe!
It is…but you will never get to try this as you people are not keen on coming over. 😦 Ya…we’re in the same boat – no worries!
Where’s all the soup?? I want the soup or better yet, chilli oil! Yum!
I love anything wonton, (quite notorious for eating too much till puking…) Hehehe.
This is the dry version – also nice but Melissa prefers it dry like this. Eyewwww…you’re like my missus – she’ll bury these in lots of chili sauce and if it’s soup, she’ll add so much traditional red wine that it will taste completely different. I will only do that when the food is no good to make it more edible. 😉
OMG! I love these things too!
I love the photography – the pink, tender and succulent flesh is very inviting.
I would love to whack a couple of plates of that right about now.
I can actually eat 2 plates of kampua with 1 plate of pien nuk. 🙂
Gosh! You are truly blessed to be able to eat some much and stay looking good. I guess I can too…but that would be brunch – breakfast and lunch and I wouldn’t be eating anything else after that. Missing these, eh? You haven’t been home for a while now – give me a tinkle when you’re back in town. We can go for these…and more. 😉
Let me try those and I can tell same or not as in IPOH…*hinting* by the way, Cikgu, u drank all the soup? 🙂
No need to hint lah! I know you will not be coming anytime soon one. Tsk! Tsk! 😦
hehehehe… hey.. i remember your schedule for this year is nearly full… saw the comments.. who and who are going… so… i better be considerate and go next year or so.. not this year definitely!
Liar! Liar! Nobody’s coming…only Shereen in early October. Sigh!!! So sad…nobody wants to come. 😦
eh…how come my comment is not here.. i commented this in Gurney Hotel… hahaha.. perhaps the comment was lost in transit..
I was saying that I wanna taste those piansip… taste the difference between the Ipoh wan tons and these… by the way, what happened to the soup? or were they served this way?
It went to spam. I’ve retrieved it already. Wah…in Penang again? Wah! Wah! Wah! Stay at Gurney! So kaya… No soup – this is the dry version. You will see another photo of the soup version in my post coming soon in two days’ time…
Haven’t tried the authentic pian sip before…only the common wanton and sui kow here. I’m sure they taste like wanton, except for the skin, rite? Anyway, I like them in soup (with lots of spring onions) and also the deep fried version of sui kow. Yummy-licious!
Yup…the soup versions are more of less the same…even with sui kow – they’re all meat wrapped in skin. Ya…I love them too! 😉
pian sip, nice, although kampua still my “first love” LOL!
I don’t mind my pian sip dry or soup, but i like to add some foo chow red wine in it, even when it is dry, taste yum. If soup, i will ask the tauke, add more wine for me!!! hahahha
Just like my missus – always adding so much red wine…does not taste like piansip anymore in the end. 😦
