Nasi Kandar Pekan Lama, Ipoh (Near Kinta Heights Flats)

In the days of yore only the brave Chinese will eat cross-culturally due to non-compatibility of taste and reaction to it internally. There is the kind of provincialism that took time and globalisation to break down. Of course with learning and travel the walls have tumbled. And we can enjoy the food that we like as stomach becomes international.

This is an iconic favourite of Ipohans despite the walls. I had squid, fish roe and chicken. This shop has been around since I was a very young man and perhaps even longer. The taste is rather different from our KL's Mamak. The aroma is stronger and taste perhaps lighter. Maybe more savoury. That's how I like it.

So try it with your favourite Kopitiam food round the corner at Nam Heong and Sin Yoon Loong. With today's newer generations they can stomach all kinds of food and I am sure they will enjoy a good lunch follow by Kopitiam or vice-versa.

Looks for this tall Kinta Heights Flats, the Nasi Kandar is just next to it. It was one of the very few developed by the government solely for rental for the poorer segment to of Ipohans
