From Wednesday to Sunday, a tricycle stall can be found under a big tree at Lorong Taman 11, Taman Pertama, Ipoh. By 12.30 pm, the stall will be under the big tree with a display of delicious food from fried noodles to curry wild boar or rendang ayam. And there is also dessert e.g. red bean sweet drink (tong sui). There will be people coming to buy food, some will eat there where there is a table or two with some chairs. Some will pack the food home.
Once in a while, I will buy home some of the food for lunch or to be warmed up for dinner especially on days when I am too lazy to cook and when we do not intend to eat out. The dishes are tasty and the price very reasonable.
On this particular day, I bought a pair of drumstick, cooked the rendang style for our dinner. This cost MYR 6 (1.69 USD) for 2 drumsticks.
I cooked some dried pumpkin flat noodle to go with the drumstick rendang and vegetarian curry. This was our simple and easy dinner.
Sometimes, I will just buy some vegetable acar for my lunch.
A plate of vegetable acar. Cost MYR 3 (0.84 USD).
When you beat the olives from your trees,
do not go over the branches a second time.
Leave what remains for the alien, the fatherless and the widow.
