As on the way back to KL, and I just love my friend Ian as he always love to find food during his sales discover over the other states then will bring me there whenever he had the chance or when I follow him, cuz he knows I love to eat in those kind of hidden places. Kedai Makanan Rasa Lain is one of a good recommendation.
This journey, he decided to stop by Ipoh and bring me to this Bercham area which is the other side of Ipoh, that I will consider pretty outskirt already. If you consider coming from Ipoh town it will easily take about 30 mins – 45 mins to reach here.
Neverthe less, if you ask me to drive another round again to this place, I think I am capable or driving myself here as I did recognise a few buildings. . .:D
Okay, cut things short that we reach here pretty early as no wonder he hurry me from Penang, that he tried to reach here to beat the heavy dinner crowd. I notice quite a moment later upon our arrival, family by family start to pouring in and I asked Ian, that the people there “sot sot (means crazy in hokkien) one? so early come dinner? as it was bout 5.45pm – 6pm and near half full already.” He explain people around the area eat dinner early!
According to Ian, you must pre-order their signature item if not, its hard for you to order their signature item on the night itself as they are trying to safe the best for the customers either by choosing one of the item. As to order, I let Ian take care of what;s for dinner .
Signature Claypot glass noodle
It was serve boiling hot as when I took a few other picture it was misty and the side of it is still boiling. The soup is sweet with freshness that cook along with the crab and glass noodle cook to perfection. Crab were fresh and meat is hard.
Another signature ‘Cheeze Prawn Claypot’ while it was servce right infront of me, the smells entrails to my nose and I istantly swallow my saliva as the smells is just too good! As we dig up, look at the cheeze ooze and flow around the claypot with its stickiness texture like pizza, I just cant wait to put it into my mouth. Cheeze topple nicely on the fresh prawn and eat it along with rice is just a match made in heaven.
Vegetable nothing to shout about .. .
As we finish our meal, I observe alot of table also order this ‘Saito Fishball’ which is homemade and being steam in high temperature then after that just add on some simple soy sauce with fish oil and garlic. To me is nothing to shout about too as its just another home made fish ball that are a bit bouncy.
I find the price is quite reasonable as 3 of us ate about RM 110 for all the above. It was another great and satisfying mean that Ian had intro me, as on the way back to KL he stop and buy 2 small bottles of mineral water and mee too. Only found out that the dish uses quite alot MSG as no wonder it taste super good!
