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.

We went to Swee Garden Restaurant for lunch with our friend, Dr and Mrs Lim (they recommended this place after browsing through their Rasa Rasa Penang book). It is located behind Maybank in Nibong Tebal, Seberang Prai. It is frequented by many outstation customers. Its speciality dish is the Thai style fried pork trotter.
The skin is crunchy, yet the meat is very tender and comes with some pickled onions. Indeed very delicious. The restaurant also serves many varieties of seafood. We had the steamed fish, fried lala, assam prawns and some vegetables.
Would like to recommend you to try their umbra juice suan -boi (sour plum) that comes in a jug. Penang has a lot of coffee shops and restaurants that serves this juice but this one is the best that we had tasted so far. It is so thick and pure (not mixed with a lot of water). They provide ice cubes for the juice.
The food was nice but it was a bit uncomfortable as there were many flies flying around.
