Kuala Kangsar, Perak – Prawn Noodles @ Aik Huat, Taman Bunga Raya

It was Monday morning and I had to rush up to Ipoh for a morning meeting, so it was one of those leaving KL in the wee hours of the morning and heading up the highway. Everything was going well, with a little time buffer we even check out my Perak food guide on some makan place in Ipoh.

As we are approaching the Ipoh toll, the norm for me is to keep right as that is where the smartag lanes are located right… and so I did… but before I know it (travelling highway speed), the road had changed! The highway splits into 2, left to Ipoh and right is straight up north, no more chance to turn into Ipoh! Next thing I know the GPS asked me to drive 25km further up north to make a u-turn! *stone*

So anyone, since I had to make a u-turn at Kuala Kangsar, we decided to check the town out for breakfast but we got a called that meeting rescheduled slightly later… not to tell more grandma stories… we stumbled upon this place that sells prawn noodles. Its located in Taman Bunga Raya and at the end of the residential road there is this wooden house that is actually Kedai Kopi Aik Huat.

The place is pretty quiet but you get quite a lot of locals stopping buy for noodles or doing take aways. The stall is in shop and they have a choice of mee or koay teow, I don’t see any meehoon. Anyway, there are 2 types of mee, the normal yellow noodles and another one that looks like hakka noodles but thicker. I was being told by the lady that this one does not contains alkaline and so I gave it a shot.

The prawn noodles is RM3.30 per bowl and it is topped with prawns, slices of pork, kangkung and some fish cake. I was bring asked by Andrew what’s the rating for it, I have it 6-7 out of 10… mainly the mee is good, smooth and soft plus no alkaline. Every slurp of the noodles is quite flavorful with prawn taste… but when you drink the soup, its not addictive. So maybe no MSG? I don’t know… haha.. but the prawn flavors are good enough for me but good noodles.

I wouldn’t drive all the way up to eat it but if I am in the area, don’t mind dropping by this kampung style place again ;).
