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...

    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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
