Been here many times but since I am with friends who are 1st timers in Ipoh ... this is a must go place !

The Assam Laksa is not expensive but I find the standards have came off a little. The fried bean curd, ladyfinger etc were a little too oily !

The place needs a good clean up but again who cares when business there is super good !!

A customer goes to "Dai Shu Geok" for the tasty food, food that he or she becomes accustomed to, or food that reminds him or her of his or her youth. The total absence of ambiance and other mode of comfort (no table cloth, napkin, air conditioning or fan) are completely immaterial to him or her.

As the name denotes, Dai Shu Geok means literary "under the foot of the big tree", and that was the humble origin, or the birth place where street food was first offered to the public. But now, instead of indulging your favourite dish under the canopy of a big tree, you relish the "creation" of the chef under crudely constructed zinc roof. Instead of one single stall, a total of roughly 30 stalls gather together, serving 30 different kinds of food and drinks. It is due to the availability of such a great variety of food that contributes to the popularity of the hawking center. The returning customers have the choice to sample the famous Yong taufoo, laksa, nasi lemak, clay pot rice, white coffee one day, and try western food, fried chicken, mee hockkien, mee rubus and ice kacang the next day. There is never a dull moment at such centre. Nevertheless, such food centre will be even more successful if they make the effort to improve on their hygiene and cleanliness.

Whew! Imaging gonna have to line up in a long line just to order/take away the more that 30 varities of dishes available. People are willing to line up more than 20-25 mins just to buy. Image those whom are eating there gotta wait & wait. Well, i'm willing to stand that long just for my favourite good (once in a while only...hehehe:) when i visit my home town. Gotta try this dishes, if, you are willing to sacrifice you diet while holidaying.
