Young Malaysian Hawkers Serve Hearty Ipoh Curry Mee & Chee Cheong Fun At Jurong West Stall
Mention Ipoh food and the eponymous hor fun or white coffee probably come to mind. While these are more commonly found in Singapore, or at least local versions of them, less ubiquitous is Ipoh-style curry mee. This is part of the reason why Ipoh-born Tay Yee Sheng (middle), 26, decided to open a hawker stall peddling his favourite dish from his hometown.Called Wang Cai (prosperity in Chinese), the three-month-old stall, located in a rather ulu coffeeshop in Jurong West, serves up both soup and dry versions of the noodles, as well as other curry-centric dishes like curry chicken and chee cheong fun. You can’t miss the stall thanks to its brightly lit storefront, complete with larger-than-life signages featuring its menu and cute dog mascot eating, you guessed it, curry mee, near the front of the kopitiam (which also houses popular Fei Zhu Lok Lok stall opened by viral “chio bu” hawker Phyllis Seah).
