WANTON MEE/NOODLE AT RESTORAN BIG ORIENTAL, IPOH

Wanton mee/noodle is quite common in Ipoh and can easily be found in most coffee shop. But to get tasty wanton noodle is not easy. When it comes to eating wanton noodle I have my own preferences and one of them is the Georgetown wanton noodle (tok tok mee) sold at Restoran Big Oriental, Persiaran Greenhill, Ipoh. As a landmark, there is the Tower Regency Hotel, a tall rise building in the background.
Whenever my hubby and I want to have our breakfast at Restoran Big Oriental, we will usually reach there around 8 am. That is when we get to smell the sweet fragrance of BBQ pork (char siew) coming from the kitchen.
The wanton noodle I am talking about is this Georgetown Tok Tok Wanton Noodle. Normal plate of wanton noodle MYR 3.80 (approx. 1.05 USD)

Roasted pork and homemade BBQ pork (char siew). The boss grills his own BBQ pork (char siew). He only prepare just enough for the day's business.

Wanton noodle dry version with special sauce, topped with BBQ pork, some green vege and pickled green chili.

It has been quite a while since we last ate Tok Tok wanton noodle. The boss has been on medical leave due to an injury to his ankle bone when he fell from his motorcycle.
We have heard that he is well and fully recovered now and will be back in business soon. That is really good news to us because we missed the fragrant smell of homemade BBQ pork and tasty Tok Tok mee.
This is glutinous rice dumpling with filling consisting of pork, beans, mushroom, salted egg yolk. I like glutinous dumplings and once in a while we will order one dumpling as side order. 1 dumpling MYR 4.80 (approx. 1.33 USD).
Besides Tok Tok mee, there is another stall selling GP Kopisan noodle. This is one of the many outlets of GP Kopisan from Gopeng. Every morning the van will deliver fresh noodles and stuffed goodies (liew) from Gopeng.
Crispy fried bean curd with fish paste (left) and crispy fish cracker (right).

Some fish paste stuffed goodies (liew) e.g. fried stuffed bitter gourd, tofu, bean curd, etc. in clear soup.

More fish paste stuffed goodies e.g. fried meat balls, fish paste, etc.

Spicy sauce for dipping the goodies (liew).

Rice noodle (lai fun) in clear soup with sesame seeds and spring onion (top pic.) and Rice noodle (lai fun) in curry soup (bottom pic.). I still prefer the clear soup version.
There are more choices from the kitchen if you prefer the fried noodles, rice dishes, etc. The menu is pasted for customers' reference.
Available for breakfast and lunch.

This is a plate of crispy fried rice vermicelli. Thicken gravy with pork slices, fish cake slices, prawns, green vege and egg.

Your eye is the lamp of your body.

When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light.

But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness.

See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.

Therefore, if your whole body is full of light,

and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted,

as when the light of a lamp shines on you.

(Luke 11:34-36, New International Version-NIV)
