We had heard so much about this place so was very excited when we finally came here for lunch. We had congee and the famous fried goods with noodles! It was AMAZING. There were plenty of food stalls to choose from. A definite must try!

Went here to try their yong tau fu - absolutely recommended. It's fairly cheap (compared to KL price) each about 85cents. The fishballs are big and meaty. The fish paste is fresh without an odour. PS: Drinks were expensive though. :(

Will only come once but not in future.. Foods were okay but the hygienic of the place is a question.. Nothing special bout the famous yong tau foo, guess you can get the same quality of yong tong foo on others coffee shop around ipoh too.
