Working in Old Town of Ipoh, I've been exposed/pampered to various cheap yet delicious choices when it comes to breakfast, or lunch. It's been a year, and we've been crossing our fingers for more eateries to open up, else we'd be having the same "Kam Chau Fan" (Golden Char Kuey Teow), Nam Chau's Dry Curry Noodles & Egg Toasts, Kong Heng's Popiah, Hwang Chao's Singapore Chicken Rice, the white coffee originals (Sin Yoon Loong and Nam Heong), Thean Chun's "Kai Si Hor Fun" (or Chicken Kuey Teow Soup) and many others.
Total damage for two? RM15.60, including drinks. Worthwhile; a rejolting, detoxifying meal for the senses. (Well, I CAN lie to myself, can't I? =P)
So what if you're not fond of dishes TOO simple, and avoid porridge like the plague? Then you can walk a short distance, and find solace in Wong Koh Kee (click HERE for previous post).
