Sitiawan Food For Dummies – Half A Day’s Worth of Food HuntMay 27, 2009 | 12,004 views
The Loh Mee stall is opened from breakfast until lunch, hence don’t go at night. You’ll be better off visiting Happy Restaurant for their homecooked Hock Chew dishes, or seafood & toddy at Kampung Cina’s AMU or Villa.
Say, if you’re thinking; ‘How to spend some time, before the next meal?’ You can either :
a) Take a nap in your car, or
b) Go shopping at Giant, Billion, or The Store, or
c) Catch a movie at Lotus, or even
d) Burn some calories off at the beach of Teluk Batik.
A Chinese-Muslim uncle gleefully attending to the queries from the crowd, all the while prying open those mussel-like shells (kepah, is it?)
Not ANOTHER Teluk Batik post!!! I hear you lamenting. No fret, as this time I spare you the beach shots (hehe).
The multi-layered Crushed Peanut + Sugar Pau @ RM0.90 per piece
Just ask for the peanut pau with layers, or the sliced ones. The dough resembles ‘fatt koh’, those (normally) pink-coloured steamed rice cakes commonly used as offerings placed at the altars for praying. Slightly sour (again, we suspected Foo Chow folks really like their food sour/sweet), the pau is not your average peanut ones, or any other you’ve grown accustomed to, for that matter.
Sang Yuk Pau @ RM1.10
The Sang Yuk Pau (pork bun with a quarter of a boiled egg) fared much better in my opinion, even eaten after a day! Flavouful, with good dough (those that does not stick to the teeth & not an inch thick!), and ample fillings, the buns were in fact, not our orders. The guy sent the whole plate to our table, drawing blank stares, & question marks atop our heads. But could it be a blessing in disguise?
Location : Yee Si Restaurant @ Kampung Koh, next to Maybank. Refer to previous map and directions on the Loh Mee @ Kampung Koh wet market.
That famous Sitiawan’s James Cendol in front of the Indian temple, next to The Store @ Sitiawan
And to cap off a hastily-planned food hunt, we had something sweet, refreshing and cooling. Please pardon my laziness, and refer to my older post on James cendol HERE, for directions, price, and taste. Here’s a MAP, in case you’re feeling even lazier than me. =P Just go straight at the KFC traffic lights in Sitiawan, from Ipoh/Ayer Tawar’s directions, towards Seri Manjung. You’ll see The Store on your right, and the Indian temple within a short distance.
With that, I rest my case. Now, WHO WANTS TO HIRE ME NEXT? =P
