Talk East Talk West Email --- IPOH BEEF NOODLES

From: Wong Tat Swee

Subject: Ipoh Beef Noodles

Dear Chow Wai Sek,
Long time No hear you. You also no hear me because day day I ho busi lei. Because Chinese New Year coming my work became no day no night.
Hong Kong cold mai? You wear more tick tick shirt and No moon lightning at night la.stay at home and play 3leg mahjong la

You been asking me to sent you more information about good food in Kuala Lumpur. Sorry I no do as I very busi. But last Friday I went for a day trip to Ipoh for a Wedding dinner. Do you know where is Ipoh mai? Ipoh is about 2 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur, but if you sit my car I can reach Ipoh 1 hour 15 mints but I sure got a lot Beef Dry from the police.
Anyway Ipoh not only famous of food but a lot of Leng Lui.

That Friday I actually very busy and only leave KL about 4pm and was thinking eat something first as we Malaysian always late. When Invitation card says dinner start at 7.30pm, sometime only 9pm dinners start. I was thinking stopping by Bidor but before I reach Ipoh a Lo Peng friend of mine knows I'm coming to Ipoh call me up and want to take me to eat something special in Ipoh town.

I meet my friend at the toll than follow his car. I was thinking he must be taking me to eat Ipoh famous Ngai Choy Kai.(Bean sprouts chicken)

but I come to this restaurant that sell Beef Noodles.

He told me this restaurant only open at night.I ask him where this place is? he say here is call 'Pak Kok Lo'.It seems they came from Buntung.If you want to know where this place maybe I ask some of my online friends where actually that place
When enter the shop my friend got to pick up a number.I was thinking this is a bank or eating shop why must get a number one?.My friend explain to me because night night this place is pack with a lot of people.We place that number on the table and we have to wait for the waiter come to our table to get order.

Waited almost 5 mints only the waiter ask us what we want to eat.Beside Beef Noodles they have Yong Tong foo, but I just order Kwei Teow Mix Beef.Before the noodles come, back in my mind areadly tells me this food sure GOOD one.6.30pm and more than 20 people eating at this shop.
Next time if We ever open restaurant why don't we pay people to come to our shop eat for one week.So when people see our restaurant a lot of people, they sure think our food taste good one.Food Good No Good Never Mind !!.

I order Kwei Tew dry style, the mix sauce just nice and not too oily.The taste of Ipoh Kwei Tew is very different from KL Kwei Tew.It seems the Kwei Tew in Ipoh made from stream water that's why it taste smooth.
The beef meat soft tendon and I just love the Fun Kok.The Soup taste mild but I like this kind of taste, knowning it did not add alot MSG.I finish my meal very fast and my friend ask me to I need another bowl but because later in the evening I been attending a wedding dinner I forgo the idea of having another bowl. Overall I rate the food 6/10, I still prefer the Seremban Market beef noodles.

Anyway when if Mr Chow comes down to KL I will take you this Ipoh restaurant and beside Ipoh is also known as Food paradise beside Penang.

I wil try my best as promise,email you on Kuala Lumpur famous small eat.Will email you in near future when I got day got night sin.

Hope you like this Talk East Talk West email

Survon said...

Wah....I haven't been to this place when I was back in Ipoh.

The next time I'm back, have to drop by at this Restaurant, introduced by a KL lou to Ipoh mui..*paiseh*

Helen said...

Desmond, Ipoh punya 8-poh aka me, would like to inform you, this place do open shop on mornings!! lol (they close on Sundays)I usually go morning at 10am, coz, there is no crowd and no need to get number. In fact, you can go and choose your "liu"..... (nightime they dun allow u to go there and pick pick their liu, right?)The only drawback eating in the morning is.... they dun fry the liu again for you!!

This one is a "lou jiu pai". Formerly, they were in Buntong, opposite the school. You say Man toong Hau Ngau yook fan, ppl know. They only shifted to the town about ? 2 years ago.

Your HK friend should have no problem knowing Ipoh if he is a sucker for good food. Choi Nam (the Honkie who goes round the world seeking good food....& women) came to Ipoh and was so impressed with one curry mee stall, he took the curry mee to HK by opening a curry mee shop in HK. lol

Lilian, you want to eat next time let me know lar!! lol

Kelly said...

TQ Desmond and Helen too !
