The Gerik-Pengkalan Hulu Trail (Pt 3)

.... continued from Part 2

Tropical paradise? ... Nah ...

Breakfast on the next day was a simple affair, at a half-open air outlet, resembling a medan selera/morning market eatery.Situated at Jalan Takong Datok, a stone's throw away from our Hotel Avana.

Lady selling wantan mee (noodles with pork/prawn dumplings)

There were at least 10 stalls operating that morning, with the morning crowd mostly condensed at the same area, probably relishing the yong tau foo with noodles. But KYT wanted wantan mee instead, so we chose to park our derrieres nearby a pau/dimsum stall, next to a wantan mee stall.

Wantan mee with Char Siew (BBQ Pork) (RM2.40)

The difference between the noodles sold here, compared to the ones in Ipoh, is the one being sold here is slightly thicker, but KYT commented the noodles lacked the bounce normally associated with the egg noodles, and gave his seal of DISapproval.

Char Siew Pau (RM1.20) with Milk Tea

I opted for a lighter breakfast, in hope of devouring the almighty yau char kueh (Chinese crullers) at Pengkalan Hulu, which we had during the previous trip. (Trust me, there ain't no other LARGER yau char kueh you can find). Thought of snapping a photo of the pau's fillings, but was sorely disappointed to discover minimal, mediocre fillings. The milk tea fared much better however, even trumping the mamak stall's version.

(.... to be continued, again ...)

We have our daily lunch and sometimes breakfast at that food court. I haven't tried their pau before, but other comments are not so good. By the way, the lady in the pic is Yk's landlady :)

Well, if KYT was transferred over to Grik instead, he wouldn't have complained much as it is one of the better ones over here. A-ha..unless he can find a better wan tan mee in this area, thn i wouldn't mind agreeing with his stamp of DISapproval...Well, as for the pau, we forgot to inform u..Paiseh lor... =P

haha ... I'll be sure to inform him that! :)

the pau is not that bad, just lacking in fillings. infact the skin is rather fluffy and did not stick to teeth type.
