Another famous Ipoh snack has got to be the Peanut Candy (or Peanut Brittle for the atas English) at Ming Yue Confectionery. It’s one of the top MUST-HAVE snacks while you’re on an Ipoh Food Trip.
Ming Yue Confectionery is located in Pasir Pinji, where the famous Ipoh Big Tree Foot at.
Ming Yue Confectionery is well-known for its fragrant peanut candy and there’s usually a long queue for it. You have to be really early to avoid the long wait. The production frequency is usually every 30-45 minutes for 2 large bags of freshly baked candies.
Ipoh is well-known for its Taugeh Chicken (or also known as Nga Choy Kai in Cantonese) and it’s always a must-eat during an Ipoh Food Trip. As usual, the popular Lou Wong and Onn Kee, both located in the heart of Ipoh town, takes the limelight.
As famous as Taugeh Chicken can be, most of the time, I think it’s overrated. Instead of Lou Wong or Onn Kee, I used to prefer Cowan Street Ayam Tauge. But its quality has deteriorated over the years.
Therefore, whenever I travel back to Ipoh, there’s no serious cravings for Taugeh Chicken.
Of late, I’ve been hearing much about this Taugeh Chicken place, which is nearby my Ipoh home. It’s located in Buntong, an outskirt neighbourhood away from the hustle and bustle of Ipoh town.
I love to travel, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s local or overseas. Having the opportunity to explore another city is always fascinating, especially when traveling to London. ;)
I just love the planning process, the anticipation, and the feeling of total relaxation as I leave ‘reality’ behind.
But after a few days, I start to worry again. Is everything alright at home? Did my house get broken into?
