‘Tong Sui Kai’, Ipoh

This would be one of my favourite place to go for hawker food in Ipoh. Literally known as Tong Sui Kai (Dessert Street) by the locals, it’s located in front of SRJK (C) Sam Tet, off Jalan Sultan Idris.

My reunion with two ex-schoolmates last night was certainly a great occassion although we were seated at the wrong place (one of them arrive earlier and grabbed a seat according to his preference), so there goes my mixed fruit ice dessert and ‘yut kwong hor’ (fried kuey teow with raw egg). But it’s ok, our dinner turns out to be quite good anyway.

My all time favourite, ais kacang with ice cream, RM2.00. This is among the few spots that still serve it with ice cream in Ipoh. Love it with plenty of kidney beans, peanuts and jellies.

Char Kuey Teow with yellow mee, prawns and egg. My friend “sapu” them immediately as he’s quite hungry at that time, so I didn’t try it. But from his enjoyment, I guess it should be good.

Kangkung Sotong. The sauce was a bit watery but still good.

Blanched cockles with chilli sauce. The two of them almost “sapu” all while I just watch them crack the shell and poped them into the mouth. LOL

My recommendation – Egg Skin Popiah. Priced slightly higher at RM1.60 per piece, this is a must have snack. Both the fillings and skin were full of flavours.

Normal popiah, RM1.20. Good but the egg skin version tastes better of course!

The stall selling popiah is located opposite Tong Sui Kai, inside a food court called Man U (gosh, someone really have the passion for Manchester United, I guess).

Other surprises you would find at Tong Sui Kai include chee cheong fun with mushroom and gei ji gravy, beef noodles, “lolo”, wan tan mee, and various types of desserts such as barley gingko with fu chuk, mo mo cha cha and black sesame.
