Yong Tau Foo @ Pasir Pinji, Ipoh

After the caves temples visit, we proceed to Pasir Pinji to have our first meal at Ipoh.

Pasir Pinji “Dai Shu Geok” literally translated as “Big Tree Foot” is a popular spot for cheap & satisfying lunch among both locals and tourists. Famous for the Yong Tau Foo or better know as “zha liu” (fried food) at Ipoh, this place housed a few stalls selling different food such as above mentioned YTF, popiah, satay and beverages under the same shack.

Pick your food at the self service counter for the “zha liu” and hand them over to the staff and your food will be served to you after being re-fried. There are plenty of choices for the fish paste stuffed food ranging from the common brinjal, chili, beancurd puff, beancurd, bittergourd to the special items like stuffed egg, long bean, yau zha guai and yambean fritter.

They also serve noodle such as clear soup noodle, asam laksa and curry laksa.

Yong Tau Foo (RM 0.60 / pcs)

The food was served pipping hot; the size was decent for the price we paid (cheaper than what we get at KL) and stuffed generously with fish paste.

The Ipoh famous Sar Kok Liew (Deep fried yambean fritter)

Oh boy, I love this, super love this! Crispy on the outer and the filling of shredded yambean was slightly chewy. Oh, why so delicious !!!! Very addictive and the worst thing is I can’t get this at KL when I’m craving for it!

Hor Fun Soup (RM 1.20)

Slippery smooth hor fun in clear broth was equally good too.

Pork Satay

Well-marinated meat and nicely grilled with a small piece of fat intertwined between  had balanced up the dryness of the lean meat.

Parking is available behind the shack (very limited though) or you can also park your car by roadside.
