This place very unique....popular with tong tau fu. Q very long daily. Popular choice among local and tourist. Besides yong tau fu this place got nice red beans iced and ai yu ping and pang tai wun drink (green herbs drink) good for hot day! Assam Laksa nice too.

Yes the are well known to many near and far but not to my liking. Fried stuff is over oily. This maybe because of the oil temperature. The okra or ladies fingers are old and hard. Maybe they use to be good but now they have engaged foreign workers and this could have cause a drop in their quality. Will... More

Without a doubt the food here is good! The yong tau foo selection was awesome! We loved their sat kot. It was very good indeed. Their laksa was very good too. If you're comparing with the Assam laksa in Penang, it's different. But the version at this store is very good on its own merit. We managed to find tables... More

Came on 31 December lunch. It was a rainy day and it was hard to find parking. Finally got a spot with an attendant help and recommended we try the famous tong tau foo. All items were deep fried. My favourite was the fried beancurd Skin and the rest were ok. Stood in the queue for the roast pork rice... More

Saw this as one of main Ipoh eatery attraction, hence we brave the crowd during Xmas holiday for lunch. Came on 12pm + Can't think of any + Plenty of tables, just need 10-15min wait during the peak time. - Hygiene is a BIG question - Laksa is too sour, can't taste other fragrance. Sorry, a Penangite speaking here in... More

This was a real treat for me! After our tour of the Sam Poh Tong caves, my friend who is a local brought me to this place to sample the Assam Laksa, And was impressed with the delicious variety of food at this place. Located on Jalan King, (which is near Jalan Queen, yes that's true, there is even a... More

A nice place to try local street food. No surprise at all, you can get these quality of food everywhere in ipoh. The worst thing is hygiene of the place, dirty and smelly near the drain. Since the food is not expensive, I will vote it for 2 star.

Although not being famous for their laksa but I think the fried stuff really goes well served together with the laksa soup. It's a perfect combination! Other than being always crowded it is pretty hard to get parking around that area.

Really enjoyed the yong tao foo or 炸料粉. Worth trying out fried turnip option which has some sweetness, and the noodles with curry.

1. The Yong Tau Fu(Variety of Fish Cakes), though made from a blend of pork and wolf herring fish meat, they gave a fine tender bouncy texture and fish taste. For me, the ladies fingers, chillies, carrot and plain fish cakes are the tastiest. Soup noodles are good too especially to match the kuey teow and beehoon. Laksa is sour... More
