Restoran Tuck Kee, Ipoh

We visited SF and SL's aunt while we were in Ipoh..
Also went around Ipoh town, enjoying the old town's charm..
We didnt know what to do; whiling away time as it was way too early for dinner..
SF suggested for a snack before dinner; so off we went to Tuck Kee..
We had the fried bee hoon..
The fried bee hoon was just right, not to dry nor too wet. It had the aroma from the wok hei and plenty of zhu yau zhar (fried lard). Eat it with their home made chilli sauce, it's scrumptious.

We also had the wat dan hor
When I saw the noodles, I was a tad surprise as it looks more like a huge bowl of thick soup. We could not see the noodles at all, we had to ladle the noodles up in order to take this picture ;).SL told me that years ago, when they were staying in Ipoh, this was the only version of wat dan hor they knew. Imagine their surprise when they moved to other states..where's all the saucy soup? The sauce was thick and fragrant; the noodles, was smooth and just glides down our throat and again, there were lots of zhu yau zhar in this bowl of noodles..
Guess Tuck Kee loves using zhu yau zhar eh? (not that i'm complaining ;p). And if you add their homemade chilli sauce into the noodles, you'll get another new level of flavour altogether..Very tasty too :)
Restoran Tuck Kee is located at the same row as Low Wong ngar choy gai.

I grew up in this part of neighbourhood, oh I wud say nearby. I still remember Tuck Kee start at the roadside just infront of this shop, the crowd was so hugw, sometimes you need to wait for half an hour to have your noodle done and serve to your table ot take away.... that was 25years ago!...gosh time fly so fast.

By the way, if you walk forward to the main street in the morning you can find the famous policestation curry noodle and also the hakka noodle!

Tuck Kee. My previous visit wasn't a good one, maybe they changed the chef (noon and night shift?).
