We started off the day in a local shop, Kedai Kopi Keng Nam which housed three separate stalls in the shop. Here we had a sampling of the curry noodles in both dry and soup versions. Both dishes were good, but we especially enjoyed the dried curry noodle version as it had quite a bit more flavour than the soup version.
We also managed to try out the Ipoh version of chee cheong fun which uses mushroom sauce instead of the usual sweet, sticky sauce you find elsewhere in Malaysia.
