LUNCH AT SWEET AND TASTY FOOD COURT, IPOH

One afternoon we wanted to try something new and we went to Sweet and Tasty Food Court which is just next to the Main Convent School along Jalan Sultan Idris Shah, Ipoh. We came to know about this place through my ex-colleague a few months back.

Day 1 - Lunch
Hubby ordered Prawn Noodle or Hokkien Mee. It came with a small saucer of sambal paste. Taste wise is good with additional sambal paste.

I wanted to try the Laksa Noodle but the stall was closed. So I ordered this Vermecilli Salad from the Thai Food Stall. It tasted slightly sourish, sweet and it is quite appetizing.

Day 2 - Lunch

This time the Laksa Stall was opened so I went to order my Assam Laksa. Then I was told that they also had Siamese Laksa. It has been a long time since I last tasted Siamese Laksa, so I decided to order the Siamese Laksa. Not easy to find Siamese Laksa in Ipoh. I like this.

Hubby ordered this Clear Soup Noodle with minced pork balls, meat balls, fish cake, egg and veggie.

Day 3 - Lunch
One Sunday, after church took my friend to the same place for lunch.
My friend's order - short rice noodle with stuffed tofu and bean curd sheet.

I ordered Vietnamese Beef Noodle.

These are served separately - cucumber strips, beansprout, basil leaves and lime.

I transferred all the veggie onto my bowl of beef noodle. It was a big portion with many pieces of beef.

We also ordered a plate of deep-fried Vietnamese spring rolls.

A glass of coffee and a cup of tea.

I have not tried all the food from every stall but this is a nice place to go to for a meal and fellowship.
It is quite a comfortable place and at normal days, it is not very crowded.

We went once in the morning at about 8 am but we found only 1 or 2 stalls opened for business. There was no customer in sight.

On the right side is a Chinese Medical Shop. Photo taken in the morning before shop opens for business.

On the left side is the RM2 shop. Photo taken in the morning before shop opens for business.

On one of my visits to the RM2 shop, I came out with 2 plastic bags.

One of the items I bought from the RM2 shop - 5 plastic pots for my garden, charged with GST.

Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden,

to the east, and placed in the garden the man He had formed.

(Genesis 2:8, The Living Bible-TLB)

  4. Looks like you are eating your way through IPOH. Do people eat out every meal or do they also cook at home? I like the Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup and the soup your husband tried. I think I would like the food court because it is not too crowded. I digest my food better that way. Have a nice week. xx

    1. Joyful, here in Ipoh, it is quite usual for people to eat out. This place is good and convenient for meeting up with friends over a meal. I too do not like crowded places.
