Lately, I have not been writing anything about Ipoh. Let’s us take a short break from Guangzhou today for something more local and nearer to home.
I got meet up with J2Kfm aka Motormouth again few weeks ago in Ipoh for lunch. I’ve been wanting to have curry noodles, so I suggested Yee Fatt. Popularly known to locals as the “MGS (Methodist Girls’ School) Curry Mee”, the place spans two shop lots and located opposite the school, nearby the Jalan Kampar’s (aka Jalan Permaisuri Bainun) roundabout. When I came here two years ago, there was a stall selling roast pork and char siew, but this time, the stall is no where to be found. Instead, more delicacies were available such as lor mai kai.
The curry gravy was aromatic, thick and not too spicy, while the chicken came with the curry were tender and moist. Roast pork, char siew slices, beansprouts and mint leaves complete the ensemble. However, it is recommended to have it immediately when it reach your table as the noodles will soak up the gravy (especially when you order for rice vermicelli). Or else, just request for more gravy.
