*Updates: Yin Yau Kui moved just across the street and has been renamed to Restoran Paris.
Nowadays, when I go back to Ipoh, I tried to make an effort to visit at least one eatery which I never posted before previously. Luckily Frankie and Lee Sha joined me in my quest and probably, J2Kfm too, on my next visit.
While Frankie wanna have dim sum, I suggested we have nasi lemak instead. After a few rounds of ideas exchanging, we decided to have Hakka noodle at Yin Yau Kui.
Although it’s Saturday and unlike KL, most of the businesses remain open on Saturday. But it sure unable to deter the crowds from coming here for breakfast. The three of us practically stood there, waited for about 10 minutes to get ourselves a vacant table. This place is just a stone throw away from Foh San, Lou Wong, Onn Kee and Funny Mountain Soya Milk.
A single noodle (small) costs RM 1.80, one and 1/2 (medium) RM 2.40 and double portion noodle (large) RM 3.00. A bit different from the one we get in KL as they’re mixed with dark soy sauce, hence gave the noodle a slightly darker colour. But don’t let the colour fooled you, as the noodle itself was quite bland. Here’s where the minced pork topping came to the rescue. Eaten alone, the pork were very salty but when mixed with the noodle, they complete each other perfectly. However, I would be happier if they give more minced pork, though.
You simply can’t miss their mixed liu as well. I love the pork balls with smoked cuttlefish bits and the minced squid balls, while the beancurd have a burnt smell. Almost forgot the fish ball too; fresh, tender and not-to-bouncy. All items costs RM 0.50 per piece. If you don’t know what or how many pieces to order, just tell the worker to mix them for you.
