The Food in Tuck Kee Noodles Ipoh
Since it’s a must, I ordered their Wat Tan Hor Fun. The shop is filled with quite a lot of patrons, hence I waited for quite a bit. But the wait was worth it.
The noodles is somehow incredibly tasty and full of what we Chinese called “Wok Hei”. That’s referring to the noodles fried in high heat, giving that charred smoky flavour. The noodles is also very smooth, thanks to the combination with eggs.
I also ordered the Bao Zha Yu (Baby Octopus). The octopus is cut in bite-sized and served with fried onion oil and light soy sauce. The octopus is lightly blanched in hot water and it’s not chewy at all. In fact, it was quite easy to bite through. The dipping sauce is a little bit spicy and sweet.
Another must order, although I’m not a fan is the braised chicken leg. The bones in the chicken legs are removed and braised in their sauce for long hours. Hence, the texture is quite gelatin-like and also full of the sauce flavour.
