“Warning : Addiction possible ... :-)”
Ever since i was introduced to this place by a friend in late 2009 , i've been coming back here for the nasi kandar 5 times and have brought along other family members and relatives too.
5 times may not sound a lot but considering that i stay in Kuantan which is about 500+ km away from Ipoh, that should say something about this place :) ... I always make it a point to drop by here usually when in the vicinity or en-route to Penang
Btw, you gotta be a nasi kandar and curry connoisseur to be this crazy about it...:)
This particular nasi kandar operator occupies a spot in an old-school Chinese coffee shop called Kedai Kopi Yong Suan, and therefore to locate it you need to look for the coffee shop signboard as there are no really visible signboard saying 'Vanggey' ... however, you may also spot this shop by the consistently long queue of customers waiting for their rice fix (self-service style) ... You can also opt to find a table first and be served although by this method you can't personally pick and choose the exact cut of fish, beef or chicken that you want.
Peak meal times are really packed with people and tables are usually fully occupied and table sharing with strangers are not uncommon and may be the only way to go about it.
There's a newer branch of Vanggey (in Ipoh Greentown) which i have never been to but feedbacks say it is not as authentic and not as good (or addictive) as this original outlet within Yong Suan Coffee Shop.
While you're enjoying the rice and curry, Yong Suan itself serves magical dessert eg the caramel pudding which is just heavenly after a savoury and spicy meal... the coffee is a killer too
