Haze, traffic crawl, festive crowds….long-long way from home. So, we took a break at Ipoh and went right into Ipoh’s puzzling signboards and missing road directions to find out what we can discover to perk up our tired souls.
Wallah! A bowl of seafood noodle with a very delicious soup boiled from anchovies. It costs only RM5.50 per bowl! Two huge fresh water prawns, octopuses, pork balls and lots of Chinese celery. Ahhh…soon, all those tiring rides were forgotten.
We had our lunch at Kim Kee Seafood Noodle. The shop displays many newspapers and magazines cuttings featuring their shop. The coffeeshop is rather cramp, oily and stuffy but their chrysanthemum tea and yee-mai fucuk are good, so I will overlook that point.
Kim Kee is along the road where Onn Kee and Lou Wong Ipoh Taugeh Chicken is. Funny why the row of restaurants there call their shops with Kee. So many Kees there it is confusing.
We had four bowls of these noodles, two with prawns, two just with pork balls, four glasses of water and they told us it is only RM15.30. We were surprised and ask them to calculate again because we thought it was too cheap!
I believe they have other things beside these but most of them have sold out. So, the next time you are in Ipoh and wants to try out something other than Ipoh Taugeh Chicken, check out Kim Kee. (Originally we wanted to go to Foh San but again, we can’t seem to find Foh San when we want to eat there.)
