Pasar Malam (Night Market) @ Ipoh, Malaysia


What better way to end my Ipoh food spree with a write up on the night market or Pasar Malam of Ipoh. There are 2 different night markets… one is a lot bigger scale and caters more to the general public and it is at different location daily. The other one will be near Lou Wong Bean Sprout Chicken, permanently there and cater more for our muslim friends. So obviously I went to the former lah, and if I’m not wrong, they are always at Tesco area on Wednesday nights. Just ask around from the locals, they know which day is at where. 🙂

Entrance...
Lok Lok... cook in the hot water, spread some sauce, and whack... After that they count how many sticks you ate...
Only one bean curd stall and it's very good... Their bean curd all comes with ginger inside.
smooth and nice
RM$2 deep fried chempedak
Many stalls selling tako balls and taiwanese crispy chicken cutlet
Keropok stall with free tasting!! The fish one has loads of fish bits inside. They close quite early cos sell very fast so maybe you wanna be there before 8.30pm.
Paper wrapped chicken! This one is nice.
Siew mai is also very nice. Skip fishball. Big pau is ok.
Taiwnese Crispy Chicken Cutlet... many stalls... taste ok only.
Apom RM$1 for 3 pieces... last time was 4 pieces...
One guy cook, another old man roll with his bare hands... and collect money from the same hands... but still whack lah... don't care!
Asam Laksa has a few stalls... not too bad though.
Fried Carrot Cake look for this guy... he uses a lot of egg and bean sprouts. RM$2.50 only.
Deep fried crabs... never try but looks good...
Mini burgers in bite size like oreos. RM$2.50 I think. Interesting and nice.
Yes they sell these fresh water lobsters for your fish tank and fighting fish and also some other fish too

Sin Eng Heong @ Ipoh, Malaysia


Just remember I have a lot of Ipoh foodstuff haven’t write yet… then I moved on to Macau ones already… sigh… getting very forgetful and I guess age is really catching up. and I sort of regretted reviewing the pictures I have taken in Ipoh again… Now I miss them so much… Think I really need to get some friends who will be as crazy as me, take a bus up over one weekend when I’m back in SG, and head to Ipoh to whack one whole weekend!

Over fantasies aside, everyone must be wondering what is Sin Eng Heong right? They are a traditional biscuit shop selling all the local favourites like Heong Pang, Kaya Kok, Beh Teh Sor, Mooncakes, Traditional Wedding Cakes, etc. One of my friends brought me to this 60 year old shop (that’s what the founder told me) and highly recommended the Kaya puffs (Kaya = Coconut + Egg Jam). So I tried… it’s really good. Thought maybe it’s hot that’s why nice… but after I packed back to SG, it’s still very good. Check it out the next time you’re in Ipoh. You’ll end up buying a lot for your family and friends!

You see the shop, you'll know it's been there for a long time...
Was there during the mooncake festival... They sell batch by batch piping hot!
The famous kaya puffs! RM$0.70 each only...
The uncle who started this business since he was 17 years old. We chatted for quite a while.
Address and contact details.

Rating: 5/5. With all the tradition and history behind it, respect.

Taste: If you like traditional cakes and biscuits, this should suit your taste. The Heong Pang (香饼) are packed in packs of 10pcs and each has very thick fillings. Crispy even if you leave it on your dining table for about 10 days after opening. Kaya puffs are damn good.

Portion: Average. Above average for fillings though.

Price: RM$0.70 per piece. On average, it’s not expensive and it’s fresh and good.

RTE: Yes definitely when I’m back in Ipoh again.

Location: See last pic.
