The Gerik-Pengkalan Hulu Trail (Pt 3)June 4, 2008 | 2,158 views
…. continued from Part 2
Breakfast on the next day was a simple affair, at a half-open air outlet, resembling a medan selera/morning market eatery.Situated at Jalan Takong Datok, a stone’s throw away from our Hotel Avana.
There were at least 10 stalls operating that morning, with the morning crowd mostly condensed at the same area, probably relishing the yong tau foo with noodles. But KYT wanted wantan mee instead, so we chose to park our derrieres nearby a pau/dimsum stall, next to a wantan mee stall.
The difference between the noodles sold here, compared to the ones in Ipoh, is the one being sold here is slightly thicker, but KYT commented the noodles lacked the bounce normally associated with the egg noodles, and gave his seal of DISapproval.
I opted for a lighter breakfast, in hope of devouring the almighty yau char kueh (Chinese crullers) at Pengkalan Hulu, which we had during the previous trip. (Trust me, there ain’t no other LARGER yau char kueh you can find). Thought of snapping a photo of the pau’s fillings, but was sorely disappointed to discover minimal, mediocre fillings. The milk tea fared much better however, even trumping the mamak stall’s version.
