The last time I was at Ipoh, I spied this famous shop and was keen to give it a try but I didn't get an opportunity. Hence I decided to try out their Petaling Jaya branch which is near the Cheow Yang area. It seems it's so famous that the curry noodles are sold in Hong Kong.
It's actually my first time trying out Ipoh curry noodles (RM4.90) hence I was surprised to see it come with lots of oil floating on top. The curry soup that it comes in is very much spicier, thicker and a darker red colour than what I am used to for Penang curry laksa. I ordered the meehoon which came topped with prawns, chicken shreds, bean sprouts and mint leaves. Although there was nothing wrong with the curry noodles, it wasn't my bowl of noodles as I hate eating food with too much oil. The thick and spicier curry soup just did not appeal to me either and I found myself craving for the Penang type with the thinner soup.
Besides the curry noodles that is served with soup or dry, the shop also serves Ipoh's version of prawn noodles and the poached chicken. I also ordered some seafood dumplings(RM1 each) which I had fried or boiled. The dumplings are packed with fillings - fish paste, bits of prawns and water chesnuts which were very nice and crunchy. The place is relatively quiet with an al-fresco area for smokers in front of the air-conditioned area. Service is extremely efficient and Ipoh's famous white coffee is also served here.
