Here We Are At Tranchell Street, Menglembu

After the laksa, our high tea meal in Gunong Rapat, we made a drive to the west of Ipoh, that is the Menglembu. Another part of Ipoh, going to the coastal way, we had our dinner in Tranchell Street, Menglembu.

It has been a long while since we had been there especially in the evening. I am not too familiar with the roads in that part of the town but I think it is quite easy to locate the "wai sik" street. (Food Street)
the most busy moments in the evening..
Tranchell Street, Menglembu..
they have mixed porridge (chu chap)
kueh kak to describe this...
rice flour fried with eggs, bean sprouts... etc...
this is the best I have tasted so far...
mini-sized wan ton noodles..
my nephew took 3 plates to satisfy his hunger....
RM1.20 per plate
they have sweet desserts too... RM1 per bowl...(30cents usd)
fish balls at 20sen for only RM3 ($1usd)
"our cramped food"
one word of advice... 
please choose a bigger table if there are more than 4 person..
one bowl of wanton noodles only cost RM2.40 
this is the stall...
unfortunately Honey Chicken shop was closed yesterday
heard this is good too!
along the street, they have dim sum for sale...
curry noodles, hor hee and a few other stalls which 
we have yet to try...
till next week.....
