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.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
