Day Trip To Coastal Kg Koh Sitiawan

WE THOUGHT OF GOING TO CAMERON HIGHLANDS THE NEXT DAY.... but no, we changed our minds the next morning!  It is a bit too far and tiring to drive all the way up but it was not too far when we decided to go Sitiawan instead.... hahahaha...  The journey from Ipoh to Sitiawan took around one hour and a half to reach.  Not near too but at least it is not a long and winding road unlike Camerons.
It is more like a straight road... all the way to our destination... 
Yes, we "consulted" Waze again, 
We keyed in Pasar Awam Kg Koh...
Heard that their Kolo and Lor Mee is famous there...
But alas.... the stall was closed upon reaching... 
Sigh.. kek si....

Instead we winded up here randomly...
Not sure what they offered but we saw something interesting...
Three big pots of "tongsui" *sweet desserts* and people crowding around... 
Many types of kueh too....
Just got a few to try.... 
"Dissecting" the pulut sambal..... 
This one is new to me... tastes good too!
Glutinous rice with peanuts, red dates and melon sugar...
Must be a Hock Chiew dessert!
Yes, this too... Peanuts tong sui... 
Laksa in Kg Koh?
Yes, we certainly did order and ate this... sour enough!
And we had Kolo noodles... 
Served with a few fried crispy beancurd skin and BBQ meat... 
And the total cost for the meal plus drinks cost around RM15...
Well, that means RM5 for each of us!

  3. I miss Sitiawan! I grew up there but left right after college. My parents are in Malacca now so I don't have reasons to go back to Sitiawan anymore :(

  10. Sitiawan is a very interesting place for the Foochow clans food and desserts. Spot on and you ate them all. I must share with you about their famous chilly sauce which has too many imitations today which are making bigger bucks than the original Kampong Koh's. Read this okay >>>> http://www.thestar.com.my/metro/smebiz/focus/2015/09/07/the-real-garlicky-deal/
