Big Three Round Coffeeshop

THIS MORNING we went to old town... as usual, it was very jammed up especially in the mornings, IPOH old town is famous for its food almost everywhere... I got so fed up turning round and round looking for a parking... eventually, ended up in Leech Street (leech? yes, leech..) and found this shop just opposite the parking lot.

Tai Sam Yuen (in cantonese)... a new shop... as far as I know... anyway, just rushed in cos I was really starving..


when we entered, there were quite a lot of varieties
not only fish balls but steamed fish too..


but since it was morning, I prefer a bowl of noodles
this is called Gopeng noodles with sesame seeds as toppling...


taken with a crispy fried beancurd fish paste too...
there and then they did the frying...


this is the front portion
doesnt look attractive but behind the scene
more selections were seen


I wonder what is the meaning of Dai San Yean
direct translation is BIG, THREE and ROUND

anyone knows mandarin here??

  3. hmm..something new in ipoh, never see such noodles mixed with sesame over there. ipoh old town is famous for its white coffee and a vsriety of hawker foods! But it's getting pricey eating over there nowadays.
