Cheap and good food

This is one of the must eat for those visiting ipoh. It is situated at an open area with. The weather is hot, but there are still so many people lining up for the best "yong tau foo". It is cheap and delicious, worth the waiting and sweating. You can compensate by ordering an ice-blended fruit juice

If you are not from local, you must give this stall a try. The assam laksa is full of fish and flavorful. It's best to accompany the noodle with the fried stuff ( fried tofu curd that wrap with fish and a lot of others choices).

Came back here to aid my cravings for their infamous hashbrown Yong Tau Foo! Still one of the cheapest priced YTF arnd Ipoh, with quality assured food. You can't demand much on the cleanliness (it is considered street food and under a tree after all) but this place is a must when heading to Ipoh. Tried the Assam Laksa for... More

The queue was long, it was like in war- every customer tried to grab as many yong tau fu as possible, in spilt seconds half of the yong tau were gone. Crowded and hot with limited space to sit. The yong tau fu were oily but taste good. Red bean smoothies taste great too. Each Yong tau fu cost RM0.80... More

I am not a fan of Yong Tou Fu - what is so nice about some fish cakes and greens in a bowl of saltish soup? If not for the persistent coaxing from a friend (a frequent Ipoh visitor), I would not have ventured to Dai Shu Geok. Surprisingly the food here far exceeded my expectations. The soup base was...

Famous for its signature and very good ''yong tou foo''( vegetable, tofu and various items stuffed with fish paste) the stall sits in the shade of an old rain tree which covers not an insignificant amount of space. Other fare on sale include poh poah ( fresh spring rolls which are not fried), char kway teow -friend noodles, congee, mixed... More

First time ordering mixed smoothies (red bean+green bean) and it tastes great! The stalls selling yong tao foo was crowded with people every time but they serves well within 10-15 minutes. A must try for their curry noodles as well. The things need to be concerned are the limited places to sit and atmosphere during peak hours.
