Quick Eats: Ipoh Horfun

Lee Tong Kee Ipoh Sar Hor Fun is one of those old school places that modernised into an air-conditioned coffeeshop but still retains the same gruff, I-know-exactly-what-you-want-and-when-you’ll-get-it service. We had fried wanton ($6) for starters and they were fried to crisp perfection on the outside and bursty juiciness on the inside. Either that or I was too hungry to be discerning.

The standard Lee Tong Kee horfun dry ($4) came swimming in its own private pool of delicious dark brown gravy. I guess people like to drink it like soup, but not me. I liked the fresh prawns (completely peeled, without even the tail, what a rarity!) and tasty tender chicken but wasn’t too keen on how the horfun stuck together. Texture-wise, the noodles were fine. They were quite delicate, so it was a pity that they were pre-assembled and practically glued together. But overall, it was very good. The sprinkle of homemade fried onion (not factory-made) really completed the dish.


Go try this place if you’re in the area. It’s reasonably priced considering that you get aircon and you don’t have to queue.
