ENJOYING "HOR HEE" NOODLE AT RESTORAN LI HENG FATT, IPOH OLD TOWN

There are days when we do not know what to eat. It is like we have been eating the same old things again and again and our taste buds are desiring for something different. Out of the blue, I thought of "hor hee" noodle in Ipoh old town which we have not eaten for some time. We used to eat this noodle once in a while for dinner or late night supper. It was already past the usual lunch time so there will be no traffic congestion and parking should not be a problem.

We arrived at the shop at about 2.30 pm and they were just starting to get ready for business. I saw a notice on the wall that business is from 3 pm to 10 pm. We were invited to take our seat first and we will be informed when they are ready to take our order.
This is the normal serving for a bowl of "hor hee" noodle with 6 fish balls, few slices of fish cake and 1 fish dumpling. We ordered glass or cellophane vermicelli, which is made from mung beans. Glass noodle is not as filling as the other noodles. There are other types of noodle to choose from e.g. fresh yellow noodle, rice noodle or flat rice noodle.
This is normal serving with additional ingredient of 2 fish dumplings. Normal serving will only have one fish dumpling.
4 pieces of deep fried crispy bean curd.
Total cost for food MYR 11 (approx. 3.09 USD)

1 glass of lou han guo boiled with sweet dates and 1 glass of barley with bean curd. Total cost of drinks MYR 3.20 (approx. 0.90 USD).

Restoran Li Heng Fatt (Ipoh old town), 14 Jalan Panglima, Ipoh.

He who gets wisdom loves his own soul;

he who cherishes understanding prospers.

(Proverbs 19:8, New International Version-NIV)

  3. Hi Nancy,

    This looks like very a relaxing meal... Always nice to finish a meal with sweet drinks like lou han guo and barley. My son loves barley water and asked for it often. And, so I cook this nostalgic drink for him very often :D
