Kar Pin Eating Shop (yup, loose translation of Kedai Makan I supposed) on Jalan Bendahara in Ipoh, has been around for some time. After undergoing renovation lately, the colonial building has transformed into a sleek, modern coffee shop with airy ambience.
The shop's specialty, has always been their "Liu Fan", or fishball noodles. They do have an extensive range of Yong Tau Foo (stuffed fish paste) for choosing, but being my usual self, opted for all the fried versions as I prefer my fix being crunchy, savoury and oily (LOL) chunks of artery-cloggers. Sadistic? ;)Dry Curry Low Shu Fun with minced pork
I chose dry version of low shu fun (short rice noodles) with some curry paste. Loved how they serve them garnished with minced pork and chopped spring onions on top. However, we found the Yong Tau Foo too cold for my liking. Probably not fresh from the wok, unlike Dai Shu Kiok, or Pasir Pinji's versions. Disappointed.
Location : Kar Pin Eating Shop @ Jalan Bendahara, right at the crossroad traffic lights connecting Jalan Bendahara and Jalan Leong Boon Swee. A nasi kandar restaurant (Majeedia, I think) is situated a few doors away, right at a corner.
