Gosh, there are so many lovely and delicious food in Ipoh and for example, “Hor Hee” noodle. There are a few stalls selling this typs of noodle in Ipoh but Seng Kee noodle stall is one of the oldest. As I can remember, it started before I was borned and so to say it is at least more than 30 odd years. It is a stall started from father to sons and daughter. The stall sells at Jalan Lahat, opposite ACS school during weekdays and in Canning Garden during sunday. What is “Hor Hee” noodle? well basically it is a fish soup based noodle with fish balls and fish paste block. The fish ball skin is crunchy as they are dried under the sun and the fish paste blocks are deep fried.


Lovely, deliciously deep fried fish paste block.
