Open for breakfast up to lunchtime, this popular icon of fish-paste-stuffed food, has been known for decades. From its beginnings under a large sea almond tree, it is now within a large warehouse-like structure, with proper cement floors and a decent tiled roof, unlike before. It still commands a large following, as the prices are fair, and service is quick.... More

Quality still maintained after all these years the portion to price ratio is still consider very reasonable comparing with other food places in Ipoh.

the famous yong tau foo is worth a visit, and you have to have it with the laksa (which is of the assam variety, ie. sour sweet). the famous Sar Kok Liew, or deep-fried stuffed turnip/yambean is a little over-rated, but if you've not had it before, again, definitely worth trying. would suggest going on a weekday, during off-peak meal...

A bit of a disappointment. The fried stuffs was salty. The only good thing was the price which was quite cheap. The red bean ice is highly recommended. wouldn't visit again though.

I cannot forget how tasty is the red bean sherbet with only RM3/glass. I must recommend as it is the most pure and won't stingy with the ingredients needed to make a glass of perfect red bean sherbet. Other than that, I love the various types of 'nyong tau fu' at one of the stalls, u can choose dry, soup... More

Fresh reasonably priced though a bit salty. Some items not available elsewhere- fried turnip/sengkuang, yau char kuay. Best eaten within same day if you buy home as no preservatives is used. Most amusing is the message that it's the only stall; no branches elsewhere. Best way is to either go when on the way to Ipoh or when leaving Ipoh... More

This place is a must got for new comers like us. So, we came ot pay a visit and try out what they can offer here. Went round to look at every stall and ordered food from them. We only ordered yeung tau fu, roast pork, and hor chien (oyster omelette), and of course fruit drinks. The drinks are great,... More
