Taiping Food Paradise

Taiping is another food paradise! Less than 100km away from Ipoh, it is another place worth trying out their selection of food....

For dinner, my friends and I went to this food court just opposite the Lake Gardens....

Parking is easy if you go there before 7pm....

it was quite crowded when we reached there in the evening..

but there were lots of tables...
so should be no problem finding one....

first thing that caught my eye was this sardine pastry
it was so nice that I "packeted" some back to Ipoh..

the 9th vegetable dumpling.. hahahaa....
(kau choy kok kueh)

these came first...

followed by curry puff "bread style"

not bad..something different....

one lady coming by to sell otak otak...
different from Ipoh too! Nice!!

sambal sotong...
not too bad but too spicy for me...

love their Hong Kong chee cheong fun...
very smooth... favourite..
special kuey kark... special edition
with shrimps, sotong, eggs and mantis...

we ordered a bit of satay... just to taste nice or not..
turned out not too bad either...

then I saw many people ordering a bowl of shark fin...
I also dont want to "chap shu"...
only RM3.50...
it tasted quite sourish..
maybe too much vinegar?

Ok, before you wonder how I could finish so much, let me tell you that the food portion above was for four persons... the only pictures I didn't take were 2 bowls of porridge with three dishes... AND THAT WAS ALL.....

So..... I want to conclude that Taiping is another Food Paradise.... I will go again cos I haven't tried all the stalls yet!! hahahaha....

    The vegetable dumpling and sardine pasty look delish. I wouldn't mind trying those. You ate well.

  8. Been living in Taiping for 3 decades but never knew that there is so much to explore in Tpg... Instead, I know more about the food trail in Ipoh. Am I a Taiping lang or Ipoh mali?
