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 White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
