Ipoh Food Again

When we were back in Ipoh recently for the “Qing Ming” (All Soul’s Day) festival, we of course went around town looking for good old Ipoh food ๐Ÿ˜€ Right after we have paid our respect at the Sam Poh Tong temple, we headed to the Big Tree’s Foot (called Tai Shu Keok in Cantonese) hawker food in Pasir Putih.ย  This place is famous for its yong tau foo aka ‘char liu‘ (fried beancurds).ย ย ย  This time we didn’t eat there because I don’t quite like the hygiene factor of this stall ๐Ÿ˜›ย  I went down pack the ‘char liu’ and proceeded to another coffeeshop for lunch.

As soon as I reached the hawker stall, I saw many people standing around.ย  Guess what?ย  Local celebrity, Xandria Ooi was there filming the Tai Shu Keok’s famous yong tau foo.ย ย  I don’t know what programme she’s onย  but if you happened to watch this episode on tv and saw a plump woman dressed in black, furiously picking those yong tau foo into a bowl, well, that’s me ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย  These were what we had that day….


20 pieces of Fried Stuffed Sar Kok (turnip).ย  Simply yummylicious and they are the best.


I also bought a few pieces ofย  fish paste tau fu pok and fish paste long beans.
