Kar Pin Eating Shop @ Jalan Bendahara, Ipoh

Grab a bowl, fill up with your favourite Yong Tau Foo pieces, then pick your noodle.
Short post today, as after attending two out of FOUR scheduled meetings this week, somehow had taken their toll on me. Yeah, although all that was required from us was some sitting around, yawning and pretending to be listening to the big shots. =)

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.

Scrumptious looking pieces of fried Yong Tau Foo (50-90 cents/pc)

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.

sc : yeah, worsen the whole dining experience a notch.

jason : not air-condition, but rather they did not re-fry them, or fry them freshly.
