Without further a-do, I shall present you my 2nd post on 2nd part of Teluk Intan food and first half of Ipoh food.
The following morning, we headed to Jalan Permaisuri, supposedly a famous street of food for breakfast which are available as early as 5am. Wow. We only got there at about 10.30am, which pretty much everything good was sold out and what was left were disappointing food. :/
If you noticed on the picture below, there are actually two rows of food stalls you can find, where there are several stalls selling the same type of food (laksa, curry mee, midnight chee cheong fun etc) and with different pricing. So, look out for the crowded stalls (when you go early) and survey all of the stalls first because some stalls may charge you more expensive for the same bowl of curry mee (as an example).
|Kali mee. Curry mee. RM3. Nah, nothing nice. The curry is not heavy on the santan side, but more on the curry powder side. Portion size is equivalent to the price you pay.|
|The stall's name where we had all the food, except the drinks. Don't bother ordering their 'Fu Chuk Yi Mai'. Doesn't have any 'liew' (condiments), just the plain drink itself. :/|
|This is Char Siew Sticky Rice. One of TI's famous food. The yellow sticky rice is exactly like malay style nasi pulut and the only thing special is the char siew (sweet pork). But all I tasted are all pork fats. D:|
|One of the shops selling heong piah biscuits in TI town, nearby the slanting tower. We didn't buy from here as we think they are sold expensive.|
|Sin Joo Heong heong peah biscuits. The tiger face I grew up with. Rawr!|
|Entrance of the shop. People buy a lot of heong peahs here. Lol. The packaging here is much nicer. One heong peah packet of 10 pieces cost RM4.90. When we went, the biscuits are packed and made freshly and on the spot.|
|Employees of Sin Joo Heong hard at work packing each heong peah in fancy packages|
|All ready to go!|
|To feast your eyes. Have you played it before? :D|
So, we kinda head off to Ipoh after our not-so-satisfying breakfast and stopped at Ipoh town for some yummy lunch.
|We went to Wah Nam Restaurant for our lunch!|
|Don't be deceived by its pale color. This white coffee packs a punch of flavor and richness. RM1.50 for cold|
|Halfway eating. We ordered some Dim Sum as well, they were alright, nothing too great, the Wu Kok (Yam with Char Siew) and Char Siew Paus' however were good!|
|Hakka Mee. RM3.50. I like the noodles. Been always on a lookout for such noodles. The taste is alright. A bit too salty for me.|
|Dry Curry Hakka Mee! RM3.50 as well. Mine was much better compared to the Hakka Mee. The curry is rich and the siew yok (Chinese Crispy Roast Pork Belly) is good too. :)|
|Errr. Chicken Hor Fun. Very sad looking portion. This too costs RM3.50 per bowl.|
|Char Siew Pau. Very fresh, soft and fluffy. The bun is well made, hot when eaten, char siew inside was good too.|
Hope you guys are starving now. :p
The last post will cover my last night in Ipoh and I will be covering Cowan Street's Chicken and Keow Teow Restaurant.
