After such a fantastic breakfast, you cannot help but wonder what other gastronomic experience can you possibly experience in Ipoh. As one of my fellow colleagues wanted to sample some authentic Muslim-Indian food in Malaysia, we were brought to Kalai Curry House located at Ipoh Old Town for an authentic meal of Banana Leaf Curry Rice.

Rice and dishes were served at the table but the daunting part remains having to eat lunch with my fingers!

However despite the mess I made, I finally understood why people said that only by eating food with your hands do you truly taste the original flavour of the food.

We had the Curry Chicken and the Deep Fried Fish, which was delicious, but the icing of the cake was definitely the Mutton Tulang, or the Bone Marrow of the Mutton.

Awfully sinful with high cholesterol – sucking at the jelly-like marrow of life however leaves you in a delightful delirium.

After such a wicked lunch, we stopped by Yee Thye Biscuit Shop to purchase some famous local biscuits and pastry. After a bountiful harvest at the seemingly commercialise shop, we stopped by at a corner stall opposite the road for our dessert – Tau Foo Fa, or Soya Beancurd.

For RM0.70 a bowl, I tasted the usual Soya Beancurd with Pandan Flavoured Sugar Syrup,

as well as the unique Ginger Syrup version.

If I was to compare this to our Singapore Rochor Beancurd, I have to admit that it was not even a close fight – their Soya Beancurd was so smooth and silky like a baby’s ass that each slurp just melts in your mouth without you knowing what hits you! The dessert is definitely my silver medallist for the trip.
