Restoran Kong Heng, Ipoh

We didnt have breakfast...
We drove all the way to Ipoh, skipping Bidor and it's delicious woo kok *gasp*
So it was only normal (at least for us) to over order... :)
SF and SL brought us to one of their favourite kaishi hor fun ( flat noodles with shredded chicken) stall which is located in Kong Heng...

But before we managed to tuck into our mains, we were hassled by other stall owners to order food from them..
The satay man promptly placed satays on our table..

Eat eat, calculate later!
There were a range of non halal satays..ie, pork satay, pig intestines satay and zhu hong (pig's blood) satay. I tried one stick; was just okay.

Shot some caffeine into my blood stream..hehe..Had the ever famous Ipoh White coffee..One word: kuat! (strong)
Some mixture of balls..hehe.I meant pork balls, beef balls, beef ligamen balls, etc..Only the pork balls were nice, others was mediocre..
And yes, the kaishi hor fun! Looks so delicious, I cant wait to tuck in :). Taste as delectable as it looks..The noodles was smooth, the prawns fresh and the chicken; very tender. The broth was light and sweet, just pure pleasure slurping it down..
SF likes the chee cheong fun there..something about the red sauce.. ;p. It was quite tasty..

SF ordered this for me to try..She said her dad and uncles likes this..Guess it was not that good that day, it was not crispy and a tad hard. Was suppose to dunk it into the curry soup (served with the meat balls), but it only turned out ok.

After we cleared all the food we ordered, we decided to have the fruit rojak across the street at Restoran Hang Chao. The old lady who serves the rojak presented it in a very interesting manner..The rojak was served without the sauce.. Next, we were given a bowl of rojak sauce each. The sauce was thick and pungent, just the way I like it :). The prawn paste and belacan powder sure makes the sauce real strong smelling; and for an extra kick, add in bird's eye chillies..

Restoran Kong Heng and Restoran Hwang Chao is located at old street town (kau kai cheong) at Jalan Panglima, Ipoh.

Well Kong Heng Use to be a great place to have breakfast and lunch. Chinese Satay was one of my favourite when I was young, people as far as KL crazzz about them. The best and well known kai see sau hor fun would be the stall next to Kong Heng. Now as there are so many new eatery in Ipoh, Kong Heng is not as crowded as before but still manage to retain their presence!

That's the reason why I stopped going there. Hate it when all the hawkers start hassling you.

They started to do the KL version of hor fun (with prawns). The satay wasn't as good as it was last time anymore.
