yeah, she made v good "sui gao"(dumplings). her disciple used to sell at Restoran Supreme at Fair Park. But they got evicted a few years back by the landlord, shifted around n now they've finally called it quits sometime back last year. no more excellent "sui gao" for me. anyone know of any excellent "sui gao" stalls?
oh, i tot her "ngap tui meen" (duck drumstick noodle soup) was the best (followed by her disciple).
anyway, other wan ton mee stalls i like:
1) the one at stadium. Ming Chee but it's in the middle lot n sells from morning till abt 4pm. v expensive(rm2.80 i think) cos the serving is v small. their noodles r homemade, cooked just nice so that it's springy. one thing tho, the std in Ipoh is 5 wan tons whereas in KL they dun give more than 3
2) the one at Jln Pasir Puteh a few shops away from the Keadilan office. Open in the afternoons.
3) menglembu wanton at night at menglembu (old town) "wai sik kai" (hawker street). at rm2, i thk it's cheapest in ipoh. homemade noodles done just exactly nice too.
4) there's one at menglembu old town that sells in the morning too. coming from the ipoh-lumut highway it's on ur right after the junction that goes to the "wai sik kai" (hawker street). they give gravy w pork strips n good char siew.
5) or the one at Buntong that operates at night. again homemade noodles except that they add gravy w pork strips. be prepared to wait if u go later than 7pm.
5) or u can go to Pusing to that famous restaurant ... sorry can't recall name but u can ask the locals there. they make their own wanton noodles. their "sang har mee" (big prawn noodles), "ngap tui meen" (duck drumstick noodle) use the same homemade wanton noodles. of cos they r famous for other stuff like braised duck w ginger dish. actually an old style chinese restaurant la
6) for big prawn wantons, go to Bercham at night, just opp Public Bank. this stall supposedly "famous" for their "Shine" noodles is not that good when it comes to the noodles (even tho it's supposedly handmade using duck eggs n has made many newspaper n even tv promotions). i'd advise u to order soup cos they can't do dry noodles for fish but their wanton sure is big.
