The sky has cleared, the haze were gone, the unforgiving radiation from the sun came shining brightly on this old town of Ipoh, is a boring Sunday and the only thing I had in my mind was to look for something nice to feel my stomach. Surfing online, and Restaurant Xin Quan Fang caught my attention, a half-century old curry mee stall, that is commonly known as 'ma ta liu' ( police station) curry mee as the stall was located opposite of the police station near a road junction.
The shop is fulled with people on a Sunday morning, many were out to have their brunch, a long wait of almost an hour before we were served.
A small bowl of thick, gravy curry sauce with a slight touch of mint is served up front before receiving your noodles and side dish.
The curry is thick with a spicy aroma, suits my taste as I'm a big fan of heavy food. The noodles is served together with a side dish consists of roast pork, stewed pork, chicken and beansprout, that goes really well with the curry sauce. Noodles are available in curry, dry curry and dry.
I do have to warn you that, the price is a little high, a meal for three cost about RM 29.00. =) so if you're a little tight on your budget you might wanna let this slide. However, I do recommend you to try as it is nice!
