Tricycle Laksa Along Jalan Pasir Puteh, Ipoh

I used to hear about the "tricycle" laksa sold on the roadside in Jalan Pasir Puteh but I have never tried them before.  Then few years ago, this "tricycle laksa" moved to a corner shop and I did not really know where it was until my colleague took me there last week. 

Now and then I saw people posting up the food sold there and I was so glad that I finally had a chance try them out for the first time... despite the lunch rush hour jam and the countless traffic lights along the way... 
It is called Eatime in English...
But in mandarin, it is called "Sam Loon Cheh?"  (Tricycle)
Not really directly translated....
There must be a reason why... 
Reanaclaire has yet to find out....
Anyway, it is not relevant....
 
This is more relevant!
Our orders.....
Ipoh laksa is definitely different from Penang... 
 
Some fish ball varieties to go with the laksa....
 Fried beancurd skin...
And a special broth consisting of meat and white carrots to go with the laksa as well...
Ok, error here.. Radish is the word..not white carrots..
hahahaaa...
Total cost for the food above is around RM22 something...
Not too bad..... 
Now that I have tried, I am "contented"....

  1. yeah, laksa in Penang, Ipoh and KL are all very different.. Penang laksa comes with lots of mashed fish, while KL laksa comes with chunks of fish, and Ipoh ones?? errr, macam not a lot of fish meat inside huh??

  5. Laksa looks appetising though totally different from our own Sarawak laksa. Each has its own unique taste & look.

  6. I don't see any tricycle in front of the shop. I thought they should've at least place it at the shop as a prop. Then younger generation would know why they sell in a shop but called sam loon cher laksa :D

  7. Is that your car parked right in front of the shop? ;p I was just saying (actually in the comments section) to Nancy the other day that it seems like almost every shop in Ipoh has some sort of yong tau fu food, just like this one.

    1. Yes, yong tau foo is very common in Ipoh.. we don't call them ytf actually.. we called them Liew Fun...

      Delete
    2. What language is Liew Fun? Hokkien? What does it mean?

  8. It all looks wonderful! The tricycle name is a mystery for sure! Ipoh must have hundreds and hundreds of restaurants and food stands. We have very little. If I started a food blog, I would run out of places in a month or two.

  12. Been a while I never had laksa, even in JB. Very hard to find!

  13. Oh, at first I thought the laksa was sold on a tricycle until I saw that it is actually a shop and I saw the tricycle logo hah..hah... I wonder how Ipoh laksa taste like :)

  14. Did not expect this type of laksa. Totally different from Penang laksa or Sarawak laksa.

  15. Jalan Pasir Puteh, Taman Bak, next to Soong Seng Shell Petrol Station. When they started, they used a tricycle for the stall, with tables and chairs at the 5 foot way at the shops further down, next to the Kodak Express photo studio. Started early evening until sold out at night.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
