In search of Ipoh’s best curry noodles, sometimes my family ventures a little future away from our home ground. Over the weekend, we were at Pinji Centrepoint, at this food court-style coffee shop by the name of Lee Kitchen Restaurant, formerly Oh Mama Recipe Restaurant. The management and its concept changed about two years ago.
Lee Kitchen Restaurant has a dozen food stalls, selling a wide range of local specialities from char koay teow, pau & dim sum, vegetarian fare, mixed rice, Jawa mee, prawn mee, beef noodles, Hakka mee, nasi lemak, wan ton mee, plus snacks such as gyoza and youtiao. For good measure, there is even a Vietnamese stall offering a variety of popular Vietnamese noodles.
My family ordered from four different stalls, with curry noodles being a compulsory item most of the time when we eat out. I am happy to report that the curry noodles at Lee Kitchen Restaurant have received the stamp of approval from my father, the official curry noodles taste tester. “Got standard,” he said.
Check out the other dishes from the photos enclosed and their captions. Is it worth another trip to Lee Kitchen Restaurant? A resounding YES. Total damage: about RM30 only.
Do take note that Lee Kitchen Restaurant opens for breakfast up to early lunch. We were there at around 12.30pm and some of the stalls were getting ready to wrap up for the day.
