怡保舊街場), and how do you different Old Town or New Town in Ipoh then. Simple, just differentiate by Kinta River, across the other end that’s Old Town. In fact, Ipoh Old Town has lots of good foods, and one of the famous one is Hoong Tho Restaurant which has been here for many many years, if am not mistaken it was established in 1957. And it has now inherited by grandchildren.
This place has featured in HoChak’s program also, Food Point of Interest has the short clips of it.
I was there sometime last month, and I didn’t order their signature Hoong Tho Noodle. However, I’ve order the Wat Tan Hor (滑蛋河), and this is really nothing in Penang could compared to this. Reason it’s full of fragrant, where as in Penang, people fried the flat noodle ahead first then only they cook the sauce.
Deep Fried Sang Min (乾煎生麵) is one of their famous dish. I didn’t quite like that, probably I prefer the Sang Min without deep frying. Does anyone know Sang Min is actually the normal Wanton Mee??
Oh yes, though Fish Paste Wanton is their signature dish, but we have something different, that’s Fish Paste Wanton Soup and they named it Ee Foo Wanton (依芙雲吞). Though many people find it a crispy wanton and dip in a soup that will make the crispy skin soggy, however, you could see many tables in the shop do order this dish. So, am surely believe this is their signature.
Last, my favourite Wax Meat Clay Pot Rice (蠟味飯). It tastes really good and I believe they have also added a bit of Shaoxing Wine (紹興酒) to make fragrant.
