After a long hiatus, I’m back at work and also back to recording my memories..
During the Chinese New Year break, we took a trip up to Ipoh to settle some legal matters. Enroute to Ipoh, we stopped by Teluk Intan to pick up some documents and also for some hearty breakfast. My sister kept singing praises of Ah Tong’s curry noodles and told me it is not to be missed. When I went to the shop the last time, it was closed but on this particular trip, I managed to savour the amazingly delicious curry noodles. The shop operated out of a corner house at Hoover Park. You would miss it as it looked so unassuming. Back to the noodles – the gravy was thick but not overwhelming, topped generously with curry chicken and prawn, cockles and beansprout and served with your choice of noodles. I took a sip of the gravy and instantly fell in love with it. You can’t find this kind of curry noodles in KL. Ooh… heaven! The dry noodles (kon loh mee) also looks delicious, slathered with the same curry gravy. Will definitely try that next time.
After filling our tummies and finished all the documents in Teluk Intan, we made our way up to the hilly town of Ipoh. After official business concluded, my dad suggested to have the famous Ipoh Chicken with Beansprout for lunch. There were a lot of choices and not knowing which is the best, we just went with the recommendation from the GPS. The lunch turned out fair. The chicken was poached to perfection, served with a plate of crunchy, fat blanched beansprout topped with fried shallots. We ordered a side of chicken offal and opted for kuey tiaw noodles instead of rice.
It was a short ‘official’ trip, but well dotted along the journey with pleasant experience for our happy tummies..
