After previous night food exploits (this include supper consisting of Black Pepper Crab, Deep Fried Fish, Deep Fried Mantis Shrimp (瀨尿蝦), Frozen Beer, and a couple of other more dishes), we woke up with a heavy tummy. But nevertheless, I was looking forward to breakfast, as we are heading over to Ipoh Old Town for their Curry Laksa Noodles. Unlike Singapore’s Katong Laksa that will leave you ‘jelak’, or surfeited at the end of it due to excess coconut milk, the Ipoh version simply leave you to crave for more!

The spicy gravy is unbelievably easy and smooth on the throat. Topped with Cockles and Prawns, along with the unusual Peppermint Leaf, this is easily my favourite dish of the trip.

Opt for the thin yellow noodles instead of the vermicelli and you will never go wrong with this dish. And if you think Curry Laksa Noodles are too sinful for the morning, think again...... the girls' mother ordered a plate of Roast Pork and set it right in front of us.

And before you start ranting “WAH, Roast Pork for breakfast?” let me just say that - have a go at the meat - and whatever thoughts would be dispelled. The skin is just so crisp and roasted to perfection. Easily the perfect side dish to eat along with the noodles.

This was definitely the most enjoyable meal I had in Ipoh. Nice authentic old town ambience along with excellent food. Truly worthy of the title!
