Pigging Out @ Nam Fatt Beef and Yong Lieu Noodles - Ipoh

My favourite past-time in Ipoh is pigging out. What else? Stuffing myself silly with my childhood comfort food. And great and healthy stuff too. But one thing that most Ipoh residents or those dispersed to other parts of Malaysia but coming back regularly is the upgrading of these simple coffee shops stall food. Meaning its more expensive but with air-con and better and cleaner environment.

Nam Fatt is one of them. Air-con comfort is really good. Leisurely pace and without the sweat-shop kind of feeling.
Extensive menu. Yong Lieu and Beef Noodles
This is our table!Fantastically fresh Prawn Rolls.Deep-fried Lieu. Combining fresh fish paste and bean curd skin will create wonders. The darker brown Sengkuang pieces is my favourite. Wonderful with curry noodles too!Wow! The Yee Wat was superb. Springy and pack with fresh fish aroma. Vegetables Yong Lieu another healthy alternative to deep-fried items.
The best Ipoh Choy Sum from the farms nearby. Soft no-fibre stalks and tender packed with the esters peculiar to Choy Sum. Really missed this smell!Last but not least this hard to find dish is rare in Ipoh due to religious practices! This shop is famous with this dish too.Nam Fatt Fish Ball Noodle House

Yeah, such a classic. This shop has been around since forever?
Glad they decided to set up air-cond for the patrons, for those who's wary of Big Tree Foot's humid surrounding, a stone's throw away.

Choy sum is one of my favorite veggies... Wonder how Ipoh choy sum tasted :)

J2Kfm... Big Tree Foot prices is cheaper.

SG... Nam Fatt has a moderate MSG factor. My preference is low.

BB... 7 pax with lots of double order for Beef.

Selba... The key is in the land. Those from over-farm land lose their taste and fragrance. These were fantastic and original.
