Enough with the KL posts (for the time being) and come back to good ol’ Ipoh! The other day we ventured to Pasir Puteh area for breakfast, and initially went for curry noodles at Mee Kari Ipoh Garden. But it was a little too early, and they have yet to start operation. Shucks ….
But help is at hand. In the form of previous recommendations from various quarters, pointing to the simple, unassuming shop directly opposite of the aforementioned shop, crossing the road. A shop that has been around since I was small, when I still was living la vida loca in Pasir Puteh.
Chuan Fatt is the outlet’s name. Sandwiched between various old and slightly dilapidated shoplots, the place may escape most food pursuers, especially tourists, without the guidance of the locals.
What sets their curry noodles apart from the others, you ask?
For one, you get to pick WHAT’s going into your sinful bowl of either wet, or dry curry noodles. Choices include fried chicken, shredded chicken meat, roasted pork and char siew.
A formality of sorts, I picked their dry curry noodle, as I’ve always preferred the thicker, stronger and luscious dry curry over its wet sibling. And fried chicken as the ingredient (poison) of choice, as many had me believed it’s Da Bomb !!!
