It's been a long, long time since we had been here. I think it should be more than a year or a year and a half that we last had our dinner here. This is the popular place famous for its "Dai Sai Keok" (Big Small Leg - direct translation). The shop is called Kedai Makanan Kum Kee in Pasir Pinji, Ipoh.

It has its humble beginning besides a big drain just down the road. I remembered it was a wooden shack and you get the foul smell from the drain as you eat your food. Later it shifted to its current location and the customer can enjoy their food minus the foul smell of the big drain.

This trip, we noticed that they have again expanded and added another two shop lots that is four shop lots altogether, if I am not mistaken. It was a weekday and the place is already filled with people even though we were early. As usual, the service is fast and we need not have to wait long for the food to be served.
Front view.
A plate of the popular "Dai Sai Keok", braised oink oink trotter (big leg) and chicken feet (small leg). That is how the name Big Small Leg came from.
A plate of Ipoh taugeh (beansprout)

Add some fried stuffed goodies (stuffed with fish paste)

A bowl of koay teow soup with stuffed okra (ladies finger) and a meat ball.
A plate of noodles, dried stir with dark sauce, with a little curry gravy added.

Side view.

Located just at the junction of Jalan Raja Muda.

Diagonally facing the police station.

Once upon a time, this was the location.

And that is the drain flowing between the rows of houses.

Glorious and majestic are His deeds,
and His righteousness endures forever.
He has caused His wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
(Psalm 111:3-4, New International Version-NIV)


  1. Big small leg dish is yummy! If it was still at the old location, I don't think I will want to eat there.

    1. Lol..surprisingly the business was good even beside the because it was night and it was dark.

  2. The noodles with the dark sauce looks divine to me! So you liked their food? They have really improved!

    1. Once in a while we will eat here. The new place is clean and comfortable compared to the one by the drain.

  3. Love all the dishes especially the Ipoh taugeh & kway teow in clear soup. Yummy !!!!

    1. I love taugeh...never tired of eating taugeh!
