Must-try Ipoh Street Food Gems
1) Yong Suan
Yong Suan’s nasi kandar is fondly known as nasi ganja because it is incredibly addictive. After a tantalising lunch at Yong Suan’s, quench the fire in your mouth with some sweet soupy offerings from Hong Kee. Ipoh folks would drive through to take away their famous mah chee and peanut soup.
2) Hong Kee Mah Chee
Tucked under a big shady tree and parked in front of a house, Hong Kee’s Ma Chee stall is almost hidden from sight along Jalan Queen, Pasir Pinji. A creamy concoction made of toasted ground peanuts and sugar, it is full of peanut flavour (think liquid peanut butter) with a mildly sweet taste and a slight salty aftertaste.
3) Canning Garden Chee Cheong Fun
This Ipoh chee cheong fun, it is very simple and wholesome. The freshly steamed rice rolls are silky smooth and drenched with plenty of mushroom sauce, dried shrimps toasted sesame seeds, pickled green chillies and fried shallots.
