Delicious Curry Noodle & Kai Si Hor Fun At Restoran Curry Keng, Ipoh.

I saw a Facebook posting by John Boey about a new eatery in Ipoh new town and I was interested to give this new place a try. I waited for its opening on the 1st of December, 2016 but we didn't go on the 1st day.

It was raining heavily on early Friday morning (2nd December) but the heavy rain didn't deterred us from going out for breakfast! Hubby and I went to try out the food at Restoran Curry Keng at Hala Pasar Baru, Ipoh. It is facing the Ayamas outlet near the wet market in Ipoh new town.

Curry noodles sounds good to us on a cold and wet morning. I asked the lady who came to take our orders what else they have besides curry noodles. I was told they also have chicken noodles (kai si hor fun). After hubby ordered the dry version curry noodle, I decided to try the chicken noodle and forgot about the curry soup noodle.
My bowl of chicken noodle (kai si hor fun). It came with the red oil floating on top and generous portion of chicken and prawns. Did I enjoyed my breakfast? You bet I did!
 Hubby's dry version curry noodle. We prefer more of the thick curry gravy for extra oomph! 
Our non-sweetened coffee - hubby's iced black coffee and my coffee with evaporated milk.
 The walls are lined with pretty decorations.
More decorations on both sides.
I was told they serve a special rice item for lunch only and I wanted to try that too!

 Facing the Ayamas outlet and you can't miss the bright orange/red shop next to it.
 After breakfast, we took a look at the nearby project.
 New wet market project.
After breakfast, we drove from new town to old town. The morning sky was gray.
The distance mountain was covered with mist.
Wanting to snap the misty mountains and I caught this dog trying to cross the road.
So did we go back for the special rice item?
Yes, we did and on the same day!
For lunch we ordered a bowl of curry noodles, soup version with yellow noodle. I specially requested for prawns to be added. My curry loving friends will love this!
And this special rice item called Traditional Granny Rice. It came in a neat heap and before hubby was about to eat it, I stopped him to take a snapshot! It has pieces of crispy fried lard, dried shrimp, onion crisps, egg, etc. This will be great if eaten with some spicy prawn paste (sambal belacan). The cost of both our breakfast and lunch were reasonable.

If you love someone,

you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost.

You will always believe in him,

always expect the best of him,

and always stand your ground in defending him.

(1 Corinthians 13:7, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. The soup looks so delicious! Big huge pieces of chicken, yum! And I love the walls, very thoughtfully done. There is nothing like hot soup on a rainy day.

    1. Just started on the 1st Dec. I would say I wouldn't mind having my kai see hor fun here at this new place. At Moon de Moon, the waiting is long and the portion is very small.

    1. If I have to choose between the two, then I will have to say that the one in moon de moon is better. Anyway it is up to individual's taste and preference. Have a good day!
