Yong Tau Foo is a famous hawker food in Ipoh and is commonly found in food court and coffee shops around the town. I personally find the Yong Tau Foo in Ipoh tastier, and was delighted when my friend KS introduced me to Nam Fatt Fish Ball Noodle House.

My family visited this air conditioned noodle shop which was located along Jalan Kampar on our recent Ipoh trip. Our meal started off with a plate of Stew Beef Noodles @RM6.80. It was served with plenty of vegetables, indeed different from those serve in Penang.


It was a delight to see that they serve Beef Soup. It came with chunks of beef and other innards with pieces of turnips in a claypot of savory and tasty beef soup. It has a very distinct flavor with the added turnip. Hubby loved this soup!


Beef soup @RM7.50 (large)

The meal was accompanied by a plate of Kau Choy pancake. The fish paste contrasts well with the pieces of carrot and kau choy. It has a crispy coating which was a bit oily.


Kau Choy pancake @RM6.00

Finally we had the selection of pork and beef balls (with tendon) together with various kinds of Yong Tau Foo in a bowl of clear soup.


Each item cost around RM0.60 each

No meal of Yong Tau Foo will be complete without bowls of plain noodles. We had the curry and dry version @RM1.40 each. The flavorful Curry Hor Fun and the dry springy noodle with Ipoh’s famous crunchy beansprouts was good. The prices were quite reasonable even though the food is served in an air-conditioned shop.

This is one place worth visiting for Yong Tau Foo. It is indeed a nice change from our usual stall, ‘tai shue keok’ which we have been patronizing regularly.

I love the look of the kau choy pancake!!! I am craving grease now, that’s probably why… hehe! Hey CK are you on Twitter?

Oh you certainly don’t get the Kau Choy pancake everywhere! That’s a very nice addition to the usual Yong Tau Foo fare. :)

Hi CK, no GPS coordinate info? It is useful for me when hurting food out of Penang. Thanks…

Notice Ipoh Curry Noodle and Penang, what’s the difference?

September 20th, 2009 at 12:24 pm

Nam Fatt food used to b better….esp the yeong liu,,,

September 20th, 2009 at 9:37 pm

the kau choi pancake looks the most tempting among all.
this shop had been running for some time now.
just that this place always escaped my radar.
i normally patronize the coffee shops opposite of this shop, on the small road leading to Tai Shu Keok.

All the foods look so hearty and home cooked

I guess ‘popular’ would be the word for te Ipoh ‘Yong Liu’ or stuffed ingredients. KL also has its fare share of popularity in the areas of ‘Yong Liu’.

Life for Beginners – Do visit this place when you happen to be in Ipoh.

BG – Forgot about that…haha. Will update it when I pay another visit again.

New Kid On The Blog – Ipoh curry are more richer in spices and aromatic and comes with curry chicken whereas those in penang are more on the whiter side – with your own add-on chili paste and comes with cuttle fish and pig’s blood.

simplegirl – Glad my friend introduced it to me :)

turnip always goes well with beef soup.

September 23rd, 2009 at 3:20 pm

foodbin – The turnip has the texture to absorb all the flavors of the soup…

September 23rd, 2009 at 3:43 pm

Another great find. I just love those turnips ngau lam or gnau chap soup. The pancake remind me of those crispy Bagan Lalang fried popiah, at least these are nearer to get to.

Btw beef balls with gnau kan is not “veins” but tendons.

September 25th, 2009 at 10:29 pm

OneBigMouth – Thanks for the correct word.

I miss this Yu Dan Fun store so much, they’re one of the few ones with air-con seating as far as I know. Things might be a little bit more ex than their rivals out there, but quality is just as good…I miss Ipoh food so much :)
