Ipoh Went To Kuala Lumpur

I dedicate this post to my fellow friends in Kuala Lumpur. Let me say this... Ipoh is not food haven as it was those days in the 1970s, 80s or 90s.... I cannot deny that Ipoh is famous for its food but this is already an understatement these days.

For those living in KL, I envy you all now... so many blogs I have read and most of them display a lot of newly invented dishes in their posts... I think the best cooks have gone to KL, eh.... am I right? (Exported!)

I almost forgotten about these pictures which I took some time ago when I was in KL... my brother took us to try this Ipoh Road Yong Tau Foo and looking at these pictures now, I wish I could be there tonight, this very minute!!
My gosh.... I love all of these varieties... 
One dish like this is so well balanced...
crispy fried beancurd with fish paste!
can you resist that??
brinjals (eggplant) stuffed with fish paste... 
my goodness...they have sambal steamed kembong fish too!
did you see that??
for kids, fish balls are a Must!
Oh Me Oh My!

taken with this simple chee cheong fun
Steamed flat noodles...
so.... tell me..... Is KL food best now????
I think I will make a trip this month...
Must find an excuse going down south...
Can we organize a bloggers' meet up there?

    Don't really feel KL food is that great especially when cooked by the Myamarese or Bangla helpers... Not anything I would want to eat again.

    Hahahaha Ipoh still has some authentic spots for great food. I still find the best sar hor fun to be in Ipoh. Plus feeling the bean sprouts crunch in the mouth can never be replaced by the skinny ones we get in the Klang Valley.

    stp: Each state has their own speciality I guess.. but many might have gone to bigger cities where there are bigger crowd and spending power... make money fast fast! :)

    gratitude: oh, i dont like the big tree.. hahaa... always crowded, hot... and of course, cheap nonetheless... :)

  8. sorry for the copy paste comments, I republished my post again due to some silly mistake.. :)

    cleff: sure I want the coke coke chicken.. please KIV!

    kathy: yeah yeah.. go makan makan!

  9. Hope you have a great time in KL and enjoy yourself with all the nice food and nice company.

  10. hahaha!! what a statement you've made, i like.. but then i guess it's like "you see me good, i see you good" only lah.. because when we have it we tend not to appreciate, when we don't have it, we will want for that.. correct?? so i think food heaven is still in Penang?? cos Penang people don't like food elsewhere, haha.. Jalan Ipoh YTF, which outlet you went?? they have lots of outlet, i only like their very old shop in a bungalow in Jalan Ipoh itself..

  11. Seriously speaking, YES. Everything in Ipoh i going downhill now. Probably because of its reputation as a foodie heaven, they don't bother to monitor the quality of their food. Always think they are the best... lousy

  12. doing down hill? how cud it be... i luv ipoh food! except chee cheong fun cuz i think Pg chee cheong fun is more tasty ^^

  13. Claire.. shoot a date to us and I can do the organise of the meet-up! I am sure loads of us waiting here.. hehehe..

  14. they have one branch just opened not long ago...very near to my house. 5 mins. Come I bring you there makan when you come ok.


Thank you, readers!
