“Famous for their yong tau foo”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Dai Shu Geok refers to an outdoor hawker center. There are several stalls here, of which the most well known is the yong tau foo. They have a wide variety of yong tau foo, including the Ipoh specialty of "sar kot" which you rarely see elsewhere. They are freshly prepared/fried and reasonably priced (about 50-60 sen per piece). You can order noodles or asam laksa at the same stall to accompany the yong tau foo.

“Mouth Watering....”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

This location is just behind the "Kow Wong Yeh" Temple near Pasir Pinji. It is flooded daily with people especially during lunch and holidays. Its famous food are the Yong Tow Foo and other variety of fried fish paste stuff (Chaow Liu)...they are really mouth watering once we see them. The price is really reasonable, between RM0.50 & RM0.60 each. We pick our own stuff before handed to them for brief frying those food again. Of course, your food will have to join a long queue on their table but they will serve them at your table within minutes. It is quite competence and fast. You could order with noodles (curry, soap, laksa) or just plain eating them. It is simply tantalizingly delicious.
The famous drinks that we always have; ice blended red bean...that's good quality..
Although the place is a shack (not a proper shop), but that's the authentic food location supposed to be....most of best foods are available in this kind of place.
Of course, they have others food available but, once reaching there...do not miss those Yong Tow Foo...simply one of the best in Ipoh.
