This place is famous for their yong tau foo~ The price is around 50~70 cent per piece, but the size is quite big compared to other stalls around the town. Quite crowded during lunch hours. Definitely a great place to eat locally!

It's not the best ambience, literally zero service. Cleanliness and hygiene levels are best left unscrutinized. But it's just simple, honest good food. Everything is fresh as the turnover is really quick.

Food is good and a lot of variety. Yong Tao Fu is tasty and value for money, the pork meat is another good choice. Ais kacang is good. Hygiene is so so.

By far the most amazing and most affordable Yong tau foo in Ipoh. Good soup base and variety of picks. Freshly made noodles. *Yummy* It is an experience lunching under a tree. Many locals flock to this location for meals. Most recommended. *drooling*

Tau foo prepared in this shop is very fresh. Fried daily in the shop lot. The ingredients used is good quality. The fish paste is used more compare flour and make the flavour thick. The tau foo can be served with or without noodles and also optional for soup, laksa or curry gravy. Yummy, must try
