Motormouth From Ipoh

Yee Fatt Dry Curry Noodles @ Jln Kampar, Ipoh

Phew. I'm back, pardon the longer than usual break. Not exactly one, depends on how one looks at it. I was away for a short vacation in KL, and it so happened work beckoned for the last 3 days. All without the presence of my notebook, nor broadband for that matter. Only good old dial-up (you thought that's extinct? you can't be any wrong-er!). At a speed so marvelling, it deserves a place in the Guiness Book of World Records for Jurassic speed in this over-rated ICT era our government is shoving down our throats.
To imagine I tried downloading a 15MB file in one hour (yup folks, 60 whole minutes!) and faltered at the very last few minutes. Patience is a virtue, and this Motormouth's helplessly screaming for someone to drill some into my thick skull .......


Yee Fatt - Now with MORE varieties! In case your bowel's acting up, and curry noodles' the last thing on your mind ....

Pardon the ranting, but lately I feel that life is really testing my patience, stretching whatever values I have to the limit. And ironically, barely a week or two ago (I'm losing track of time now), I attended a course on Morale Values in Teluk Batik. Not any pathetic one or two hours of lecture, mind you. No sirree, here we do things on a whole different level; A showstoppin' of a grandiose scale, with much pompous and swaggerin', a magnificient 3 days 2 nights of Hardcore-Instilling/Drilling/Installing of Morale Values.

Kind of made up for whatever's lost over the years. Still remember the nightmare that was SPM's Moral Studies, anyone? :)


Delicious Chee Cheong Fun with Mushroom Sauce
Wait, didn't I blog about Teluk Batik before? Yeah, brownie points for those who remembered that post. But at that moment, I have NO idea I was about to go for a 3 days course in Teluk Batik in the very near future. Rendezvous struck again and again. Remember my TWO visits to Langkawi within a week from each other? (Read HERE for the 1st visit, and HERE for the 2nd one)

Herbal Tea (sans the egg, or you can opt for one with your cup of tea)
Anyway, I'll save the Teluk Batik posts (with some Sitiawan & Seri Manjung food) for some other day. For today's post, let's drool over some simple yet mouth-watering fare from Yee Fatt Coffee Shop in Ipoh.

Hainan Dry Curry Noodles (RM4) - A secret blend of spices, serving satisfied customers from generation to generation


I've actually blogged about this place last year, but I doubt many would have noticed. So, for the benefit of the curry mee fans all over Malaysia (and maybe the world?), here's Yee Fatt again! Yay!
They've since renovated with a bigger signboard upfront, green in colour, and with a few food shots to stop the crowd. Or the traffic for that matter, as this shop is located at the rather busy roundabout at Jalan Kampar, or known as Jalan Raja Permaisuri Bainun, facing Methodist Girls' School (MGS).


They've expanded their menu somewhat, with dishes such as Chee Cheong Fun (Steamed rolled rice noodles), savoury Glutinous Rice, etc. But their main pulling factor is no doubt, and forever will be, the Hainan-style Dry Curry Noodles.

Thick, rich and creamy curry dousing the noodle of your choice, with ingredients such as Char Siew (BBQ pork), chicken meat, and bean sprouts as complements. Compared to the other curry noodles in Ipoh, Yee Fatt's version is slightly spicier (though far from burning hot), thicker gravy, but without the usual bells and whistles of most, such as cockles, roasted pork, prawns and such.


But holding true to its years of legacy, serving the most authentic form of Hainan curry noodles one can find in Ipoh, you have to try the dry curry noodles here, and pass judgment accordingly. In case you're wondering, here's a MAP. Further directions required? Feel free to drop me a comment, a mail, a shoutout or a Twit. =)

I love the noodles here. The lor mai kai is not too bad too.

SimpleGirl said...

the 2nd generation is running the shop now..the quality remains the same at Yee Fatt.

JENCOOKS said...

The immorality of eating and reviewing too much eh that you need 3D2N training on Moral Values and lead a healthy life! hehe. The Hainan curry oodles of noodles or hor fun for this matter is temptingly good. I think the signboard already beckons me well.

Bangsar-bAbE said...

So this is the curry mee boo-licious mentioned about!

Why no see hum one?? Out of stock? Or does it come with just char siew and chicken? *_*

Sugar Bean said...

Wow, seems like their curry is something that we shouldn't miss then. Thanks for sharing and will put in into my must-visit list.

Sorry to ask for a favour, do you think you can add us to your food bloggers link? Thank you. ^^

allie said...

I miss ipoh curry so much... and see those ccf.. can never get that kind in Penang.. :(

soo sean said...

With the new and big signboard, I almost could not recognise it. I prefer the dry curry noodles here than the soup version. Did you try the tea egg?

Selba said...

Chee Cheong Fun is my favorite one :)

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Aah, all the requisite ingredients are there for a good curry mee. Yummy. The chee cheong fun looks delicious too. Must remember to drop by one day. Thanks!

boo_licious : the pau's were very good last time, fresh from the steamer. hainan pau. and they had fried rice, rice with pork chops and such. but now not anymore i think.

SimpleGirl : yeah, used to be amused (slightly intimidated) at all the shouting when ordering, as the Hainanese guy was really really loud.

Jencooks : but the 3D2N training was a pointless course though. :)

Bangsar Babe : oh she raved bout it as well? :) good good ... no see hum lah. never bothered to ask for them also though.

Sugar Bean : no problem! will add you guys in later.

Little Inbox : absolutely horrifying, to some. but to the fans, the noodles are god-sent!

allie : Penang only has HK CCF and those with shrimp paste eh?

soo sean : i didnt try the egg. my friends had the tea without egg though.

Selba : do they have them over in Indon?

LL : the rich, thick and spicy curry is lip-smacking, not to mention lip-smearing messy-goodness!

jason : more than Nam Chau and Tung Koo Ting's ah?

email2me : Pg as well, though they're slightly different.

ck lam : just read ur comprehensive coverage of Penang curry noodles as well. together, we can make a difference. hahaha ...

I notice they have upgrade their look, new signboard and some beautiful posters. Another great curry noodle from ipoh!
