This yong tau foo stall is located in Big Tree Food Garden which is next to the big tree foot yong tau foo. I was here on a Wednesday and since big tree foot is closed, I gave this stall a try.

The queue at this stall is long with a lot of people dining and da bao-ing away even though its already 3pm in the afternoon. The yong tau foo here starts at 50 cents per piece, very reasonable price not like KL where YTF is becoming an expensive food to enjoy.

There are various types of ytf that’s unique to Ipoh again and tonnes of fried ytf to choose from. My favourite is a fish paste with a lot of chinese parsley inside that’s deep fried, its really good.

Basically I took 2 full bowls plus 3 bowls of dried lou shi fun (short rice noodles) for 3 person and it cost RM13!

Best part is I can order a nice big glass of red bean ice (hung dao ping) to enjoy with the yummy yong tau foo. Each of us walked away with additional ytf we da bao to bring back to KL to enjoy.

The yong tau foo is really good too but comparing to big tree foot next door is a little oily for me but perfect for those who love it crispy!

We were on the way up to Penang for a few days of makan and we made a quick stop at Pasir Panji in Ipoh for breakfast for the famous yong tau foo under at the big tree foot.

There are various types of yong tau foo (yong liew as they called it there) available here and mainly are big in size and different from those you see in KL. My personal favourite is the sar kok liew and the beancurd skin (with the yummy, tasty and generous fish paste in them).

We ordered a whole table full of them with noodles to share and it cost RM30++… pretty good pricing yet delicious. This place closed on a Wednesday as I had experience coming here twice on a Wednesday.

Best is to come slightly earlier before lunch as this place is pack during lunch time and 11am plus is a very nice time. This is definitely one of my favourite stops in Ipoh, yum yum!

Teluk Intan – Sing Guan Hoe Heong Peah
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Perak, Places to Eat | icon4 11 19th, 2009| icon3Comments Off on Teluk Intan – Sing Guan Hoe Heong Peah

Heong Peah is a well known Chinese delicacy in Teluk Intan. According to Wiki, Heong Peah or 香饼 in Mandarin (Fragrant Biscuit) has a crispy layer outside and contain a mixture of flour, oil, maltose, sugar, sesame, and shallots. ‘Heong Peah’ market in Teluk Intan is dominated by two family-run enterprises: Sin Guan Tin and Sin Joo Heong.

Of the above, my colleague’s aunt actually owns and runs Sing Guan Hoe and so far I find their biscuit to be the best! However the trick is you must have the biscuits fresh, the modern vacuumed pack can keep it nice and fluffly for the next 2-3 weeks but best is to be taken immediately or within a week as they bake and pack their biscuit fresh.

During my last trip to Sitiawan, I made an effort to stop by at Sing Guan Hoe to pick up the pre-ordered biscuits (they have a long queues of order to be met) and got to taste some freshly baked heong peah and have a cool and viewing how they make their biscuit.

Our initial orders of like 8 packets became like 14 after everyone started to taste the biscuit and those that we brought back, everyone loves them! I highly recommend this brand to anyone, its soft, fluffy and sweetness is just right ;).
