Kar Pin Eating Shop, Ipoh

It was morning, the day of my return to KL for the new semester, meaning the end of my precious (and so short) break. Actually, I was quite looking forward to returning to KL; only that I always have the dragging feet approach to the end of my breaks. Well, as is customary, my parents brought Joshua and I out to breakfast before our 9 a.m. train. Mum suggested this shop which along the road after MGS Ipoh, Kar Pin; which I've never been to before:-

Their specialty is their assorted yong tau foo
Which they put it all at this table at the entrance

I let Mum make the choice for us and went to get a table inside. The exterior in the picture above looked so old but the interior must have been newly renovated since it was really clean and nicely lit. We all ordered coffee for our drinks.

Our food took a little while to come, but it was worth the wait. Pictures:-

Noodles (gon lou hor fun mien)

Assorted fried yong tau foo

Their liu was really good. I am a loyal Big Tree (Dai Shue Geok) customer, where I cannot get enough of their fried liu. But this shop, Kar Pin fared very well with theirs too. Their fried liu were very crunchy and tasty, and the liu in soup were very fresh. I especially loved their giant fishball, which was springy and nicely flavoured with cuttlefish. Mmm..

Looks like I've discovered another place for a yong tau foo fix!!!
Yay-ness! Breakfast plans in place for next time I go back to Ipoh!! Image Hosted by
