Ipoh Buntong Fried Noodles Resurfaced Again!

Buntong Fried Noodles along Leong Sin Nam Street was quite well known one time for making patrons wait at least half hour or 45 minutes before food was being served and if one is too hungry, one should not go to this shop. It is also not surprising to see the men holding and reading newspaper while waiting to be served. Well, that was few years ago...

Not sure what happened, suddenly business stopped, the man "disappeared" and I heard there was franchise on his noodles.. I am not into franchising food products, I prefer the originality so I stopped eating the fried noodles. Then recently, someone told me that the man "reappeared" and this time he was at another location in town along Osborne Street, just behind the former Majestic cinema. The shop is called MXII....
Finally....  I found "him"...  yes, same man... cos I remember he is quite "skinny" type...
Still the same look but not as skinny as before... hahahaa...
My girl and I went around 7pm.... not many people as in those days...
Maybe his old customers have not "found" him yet....
On the other side, a couple was preparing dumplings.....
While waiting for our fried noodles, we ordered these below...
Called "Kau Chee"... I prefer those with leeks fillings......RM6 for 5 of these...
We ordered a bowl of egg gravy flat noodles...
AKA... Wat Tan Hor...  RM6
And a plate of fried meehoon....RM6
Well, how was the taste?
Not too bad... 
Will come by again.... this time with a bigger group...
Can taste more varieties!
