The Dying Art Of A Good, Delicious & The Best ‘Chee Cheong Fun’


Note: “Chee Cheong Fun” = Steam Rice Noodle
When I was a kid, I still remember my dad and mom will take me out for a ride on their morris minor and it was always be a special night when we headed to the Caning Garden “Chee Cheong Fun”. I can still remember the stall which was located at the middle side of a football field. It was as usually crowded and that it was nearly more than 30years ago. And yet recently the temptation of “Chee Cheong Fun” had excited me again, reborn! . . . . as I had found the best ever “Chee Cheong Fun” in my whole entire life and this is the one, a NO name “Chee Cheong Fun” located in Pasir Pinji.

The best jokes that we alway cracked about this stall was their quing number system whereby you have to obtain before serving. YES! the QUE and YOU are not the QUEEN!, YOU still have to wait and with added patient! You will be given a number, sit and you will be served when your number is called. Don’t this tell you about the “Chee Cheong Fun” served here. YES! It is truely awesome delicious “Chee Cheong Fun”, it just melts in your mouth, so soft and yet so fragrant, with the mixture of an authentic sauce which enhance this “Chee Cheong Fun” ever further. The real bonus about it, . . . it is really affordable, so CHEAP!, read my word again if you dont believe,………… VERY CHEAP!


The authentic sauce, . . . soya sauce, sweet sauce, chilli sauce and pickle green cut chillies!

    It looks good. The uncle is so old but yet he is still so active in making it everyday. I really admire them at times. But I wouldn’t mind doing such thing with my other half till old age. hehe…

    We so envy you to have a chance to take this Pasir Pinji CCF photographs. We only sneakingly took a few shots at the front cuase the Aunty was grumbling, which she always does.
    She asked us not to promote more as she is unable to cope with the increasing business and the under manned problem.
    The following is the link to the blog we did on them:

    This stall is called “Ah Tuck Chee Cheong Fun”. The simplest yet most delicious chee cheong fun.

    since my 1st trip to ipoh a few yrs back, i have heard of this stall from my ipoh friend. but too bad i have never been to there before, yaya becoz of the famous numbering queeing system. a plate of ccf may cost u more than an hour++ of waiting, yet u finish it within seconds.

    i think is mainly due to freshly baked ccf, thats why the progress is a bit slow. i very appreciate their style, like in HK, the sifu making fresh tim sum in front of u.
    hope their next generation wont let such culture slip away.

    hope oen day a kind soul will teach me how to make them, in the meantime, have to be satisfied with what we have.
