    Street Vendors: Taiping Delights-Curry Mee (Noodles)

    by chocolatecake Updated Dec 12, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The vendor is on the 1st floor in the market.

    Favorite Dish: Curry Mee is the egg noodles with the hot and spicy coconut milk curry, garnished with tofu, prawns, bean sprouts and spring onion. There are many street vendors sell Curry Mee, but the curry soup is different from stall to stall. The curry soup from this vendor is very thick with coconut and really hot and spicy, it is the best I have had so far in Taiping. If you find egg noodles is too filling, you can ask for Mee Hoon (rice noodles), it costs the same RM2.50-RM3.00. It is very popular in M'sia, Singapore and Indonesia.

    Tops Thai: Too much bone and gristle

    by Willettsworld Written Aug 18, 2010

    I stayed in the hotel above this Thai restaurant (see my accomodation tip) and the food was about as good as the hotel - simple and not all that good. I had a Thai green chicken curry which featured lots of bone and gristle but the curry was just OK. One to avoid.

    The food court is the result of moving most of the street hawkers off the streets and centralise them... A section of the food court is segregated for muslim food... There are many stalls thats sells all kinds of Chinese hawker food... ranging from seafood to noodles soups...

    Favorite Dish: The most famous chee cheong fun is located at stall C-37... It is the best in the town... its yam cake is also mouth watering and delicious...

    The Restaurant

    If you like those fresh short, stubby and succulent type of bean sprout (Ngar Choi), Central and Northern Perak is the place to be.
    This restaurant serves Ipoh style Ngar Choi Gai (Bean sprout and chicken) with rice noodle in soup or dry style. Their white coffee is also excellent. If you're into chicken feet, their braised checken feet is great too.
