I love to take my breakfast in this shop here in old town but I seldom have a chance to. The reason is that this shop is always "Full House".... Sometimes I will stand and wait for awhile but most times, I will land up in some other shops nearby. This shop is called Hong Hin and it has been operating since 1970s. I was working nearby then and the vendors were quite elderly. But now it is being manned by a young couple and their mama. (I think)
On this particular morning, I saw a Caucasian making some enquiries at the stall...
I overheard he asking what the ingredients are... fish? How about this?
And the young lady was patiently explaining to him despite the busyness...
We were sitting on the five foot way.... and from my angle, this building came into view...
Nice colonial building... now only I realize...
Just right opposite from where I am sitting
is the Goldsmith shop which has been operating many years ago.....
Soon my noodles arrived.... Hakka Mee!
Love all the spring onions...
For the combination, it only cost RM3.20
We were a bit taken aback...
Now we know why this shop is always crowded...
What is Cheap and Nice, the Ipohians will be there!!
Is this famous? And my Ipoh friends only know how to bring us to drink kopi and eat roti or kuih if we go to Ipoh old town...ReplyDelete
If you want to come to this shop, you need to be early.. By 9.30 or so, the noodles are sold out.. :)Delete
Huh.. sienzz... no wonder..Delete
I didn't hear wrongly, did I? RM3.20 for the noodles & "liews". So very cheap. Like the colonial building too.ReplyDelete

This is a very nice and the people are so very polite, no wonder everyone comes here. Love that building that is odd shaped, what is in it?ReplyDelete
Yes, a triangular shape... I only notice it when I was waiting for my meal to be served...Delete
That certainly does not look anything like what I had in Seremban. Wahhhh...everything, north and south, all not the same one.ReplyDelete
Not same is good.. if same, no good.. no more special... no more excitement to try new food.. hahaha...Delete
Hakka mee I like.. I can eat everyday.. But here is whiter one. And dryer.. No dark dark sauce one.. Plain, with just minced meat and some char siew.. Sedapppp..ReplyDelete
Yes.. each place has their own special way of cooking it... if all same, then will be boring.. for Wai Sik people like me, I prefer to try different styles... :)Delete
