Where the Starz Come Out to Play

Second post for the day ... Must catch up, must catch up !!! =P

Hor Le Wood. Tongue-in-cheek?

I used to attend tuition classes at Wijaya in Ipoh Garden South. On most evenings, my family would walk a short distance from my tuition centre, and packed some fried goodies home (eg . yew char kueh (Chinese Crullers), ham chim peng, fried nin kou, etc) for tea break.

The stall is still there, but manned by different owners. But still attract the crowd, nevertheless.


Sore throat inducers ... pick your poison ?

More of the superstarz on display

Fried sweet potato balls (RM1 for 5)

Grandma's perennial favourite. Though I find them a bit too sticky. But when eaten HOT from the wok, really satisfying. Crisp on the outside, hot and sticky on the inside.

Fried Nian Gau (glutinous rice cakes) RM0.70 each

Ham Chim Peng (RM0.70 each), and the rest of the cast at the background ...

Sticky Nian Gau sandwiched between sweet potato and yam slices. Contender for an Oscar nomination?

Overall, pretty cheap, RM5.20 for 6 pcs, plus 5 sweet potato balls. Tastewise? Decent, but a notch below the ones from a stall at Restoran Hong Kong in Canning Garden. More on that in the future. Now for some well-deserved rest after a long, long day .... zzz ...

Location : Tingkat Taman Ipoh, Ipoh Garden South. A corner shop opposite Restoran Chha Yong (famed for the tong sui). This row of shops is behind E-Box Karaoke, a large building facing the main road of Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah.

Mum-Hulk like to go there for tea whenever she came visiting Hulk. She likes this tid-bits. But not me. I like Chendol for tea only. Favourite hang out for this hulk-Green slimy thingy at Bercham padang area. Hulk likes everything green..green pea, vege, green tea...& the green padang view.

hello motormouth!

i frequent those shops too...really miss the nin gou...so yummy...

Also, if you're around there for breakfast, do try the seafood mee at Chha Yong, the shop opposite Hollywood! The auntie was originally selling those in Jalan Dato' Onn Jaafar, then she moved here...nearer to my house summore!

And the tong sui there...ohhh...nice...
