Presentation wise, this bowl of Ipoh Chicken Broth Flat Rice Noodles was a real turn off. And this is not due to my less than amateurish photographic skill. Been there a few times and yes, this is the usual way it arrives at your table.
Tastewise, thumbs up toes up! The chicken pieces smooth, the noodles smoother and the soup, flavourfully sweet. A word of caution though. The chicken pieces are at the 'just cooked' stage so may not be for those who are squeamish at the sight of blood. Not to say this had happened to me but there is a good chance since the meat can be a bit on the raw side close to the bones. As for its highly recommended wantons (prawn dumplings) by the proprietors, I have had them before (didi not take any pictures) are to me nothing to shout about.
This is a stall run by 3 men. A gentle fair looking man whose duty is to greet customers (which he does most genuinely and courteously) and take orders. He is always standing there with a ready smile. Another in the background busy preparing the orders while a foreign worker buses tables. This worker is a gem too. Whenever I asked for extra cilipadis, he will bring me the whole tub and wait patiently while I scoop my desired amount.
The cost:- RM5.00 per bowl
Location:- A Food Court at Taman Desa. Stall is the first on the right upon entering.
Note: Better to go in the mornings as the place gets stuffy and warm towards noon.
