Last 2 weekend when got a bit long weekend holiday, my friend tag me along to a mini makan trip as they are on they way for their business trip and for me, its just more on pure eating~ 😀 . The town is call Pusing.

One of the business partner, introduce me to his small little hometown where by  a few streets away is his grandmother’s place. This small little town is call Pusing, which is located about 20 minutes drive from Ipoh town towards north. If you ask me where the hell am I at the moment, the only answer I can provide you is, I do not know!

Pusing (1)

Its on Monday and the streets here are pretty quiet, a very peaceful town that every one is very friendly. Actually this town is a little Hakka town that according to my friend 90% of them are Hakka. So for hakka speaking people, this will be your chance to shine~

Pusing (2)

If you are talking about to stay in the town, this is the only hotel available which is Pusing Hotel and by far the biggest too, with only 4 rooms available. If you do plan to stay here, book early! :p

Pusing (3)

Then he brought me to this shop that sells one of the local specialty that have no signboard like Ah Seng Kopitiam or watsoever, the only thing for you to recognize is this Blue Zink corner shop with fruit stall right at the front.

Pusing (4)

or directly opposite you can see this gate  . . .

Pusing (5)

This is the noodle that he is very keen on introducing me, as we are very far from heavy breakfast this morning or I would say a while ago, Its hard for me to finish this bowl by myself. If you guys know what is written in Mandarin, please help me translate.!

Pusing (6)

I ask the store owner what is their signature noodle, and they told me curry soup base is their best among neigbourhood. Well, give it a try then . .

Pusing (7)

Love the curry as its, very mild and light in flavor, right after taste is a bit spicy at the end whereby the coconut milk is not too milky yet the soup is aromatic with a bit pandan taste. Its totally different type of curry flavour I have tried so far and the best thing is according to my friend that the noodle is homemade by themselves that the texture taste a bit like laksa noodle and spaghetti, its very unique.

The best part does not only stop on the noodle, GUESS how much is this bowl of noodle? RM1.50 . . ( I was like haaaaaa ??!!! RM 1.50 where the hell can we get a meal in that kind of price.)

You will be surprise how cheap the food in this town is. Yet most of the stalls operate in this kopitiam are homecook style!

Pusing (8)

Another stall that the guy called Ah Chong highly recommend is his favourite Nyonya kuih stall.

Pusing (9)

There are 3 kuih stalls operate side by side that sells different type’s of kuih~

Pusing (10)

This uncle that sells a bit of nyonya kuih style which is highly recommended by my friend.

Pusing (11)

We bought everything in the stalls 2 pieces each that comes out in a 2 big bag and it cost us RM8.70 which our jaw drop again. This uncle made his kuih fresh daily and alot of his business are more on neighbourhood business.

I am definitely coming back for this uncle again as the kuih is good, aromatic and nice!

Pusing (12)

another stalls that selling other types of kuih~

Okay, now that’s the question . .. . HOW to come here right? I have no freaking idea but then if you can find PUSING Police Station then you can find this place easily as its just about a row of shop houses away~

If you are asking me, if you want some cheap nice food, PUSING town is one of the place to hunt for. I will sure be back for their food again if there is a chance and will ta pau a whole big bag of Kuih back to Penang or KL.

Was walking around for the night quite long, so it was me who made the call saying that kia liau…go food hunting. As I remembered last time when I came to this area, there is 1 takoyaki very very nice and the queue is very long.

First stoop of the night, Nelson Street.

As I spotted this stall, directly drag the whole group to this stall as I smelled Smelly Toufu. When I reached this stall I was so excited like a 3 year old kid saw a ice cream guy, and get to see so many things to eat. When I spotted this stall that time I cant really see what were they selling as this stall that time it was full with food patrons. The street with that number is only this shop is here where you can see the shop is flooded with ppl.
Our very first stop of this shop………………
Of course the no.1 thing that MUST not MISSSSSS….. The ‘Curry Fish Ball’ The upper deck is non spicy and the 1 below is Spicy. After taking this picture I got scolded by the store owner saying that not allow to take pictures. Then I was like wtf!!!

This is a small bowl of curry fish ball which cost HKD 8.

Of course cannot compare to the 1 I ate at Sri Petaling Pasar Malam Curry Fish Ball. The fragrance of the currry is there and the softness of the fish ball its like you use a knife to slice it when I am biting it. I ordered the spicy as it was really spicy. One ball enough to stir you high. Definitely good stuff.

Wahhhhh….this is one of the best thing to get in this stall also, by looking at it and remembering the taste just makes me drool again. It is ‘Fried Pig Intestine. The skin is crispy with gold brown colour and the filling is chewy and of course got a lil stink smell and taste just makes it perfect. For those who eat pig spare parts, of course this is verrryy Highly Recommended by me. One stick is around HKD9

Next is my bestie bought Siew Mai’. The great thing is not about the sauce of it. The sweet sauce mix with it that stir up the taste. Comparing with the siew mai in malaysia, still think it taste better from the street food. It is small in size, with the stim taste and soft. Just alright.

This must not be miss also, one of the Hong Kong street food signature. Of course one of in my hotlist food hunt which is the ‘Smelly Toufu. To the dissapointment, the smell of the smelly toufu is not as strong as last time which you can smell it 2 blocks away. This I get to know they serve the toufu when I walked nearby the stall.
The toufu is not as smelly as I ate last time, but of course it is much better compare to Sri Petalling because of the smell and of course the SAUCE!!! The sauce you have to mix it with, sweet sauce, their very own chili sauce and chili flakes with some ginger. Wow, even though the toufu is not really smelly compare to last time but with the mixture of the sauce, can just put the whole thing in my mouth and enjoying it.
After finishing it, when I try to talk to Yeong my bestie, she said she cant really smell the smelliness of the smell when I was talking. The amazing thing was last time me and my bro ate on the street and went back up on the bus, the old lady ask me and my bro did we eat smelly toufu, and we asked her how she know, then she said that we stinks.. 😀
2 pieces of toufu around HKD 9.
Most of the things in this stall is very nice. Should Try!

Food rating 9/10 ,Si Pek Hoh Chiak ah!!!~

Walk and walk and walk then came till this street. From what I eat just now, I am still hungry and my friend ask me am I alright. I said of course, part of my mission here is food hunting. Eat lah~ The stall is located behind this street board.

This is the next shop I came across as I was very thirsty and saw this shop got sell bubble cup tea. Of course it has always been my favorite and by looking so many ppl at this stall and give it a try. I drink the ‘Bubble Cup Tea’ till I forgot to take the pic. The drink definitely is a highly recommended which most of the patrons are aiming for it.

As I bought the drink first and let the rest try ended up every 1 having 1 cup. The pearl is so chewy, the drink in it is just the right taste. Not too sweet not too diluted. The drink was around HKD 12

The food that they sell is similar to the first stall that we eat. Again I was trying to take the pic, got scolded by this stall owner. Then I was like why in their shop they directly put a sign no pictures please!

This is one of the ‘Mix Ball’ that I found it quite funny and just bought one. Start from the top ‘Beef Ball’, ‘Pork Ball’, ‘Fish Ball’ and ‘Squid Ball’ which cost around HKD 10 for this stick.

Honestly, I find the taste is abit weird as they put some satay sauce and don know what sauce and the taste of the ball ball thing doesn’t impress but still finish the whole stick.

Food rating 5/10 ,Ok Ok loo~
Then went back to grab another cup of Bubble cup tea as I only manage to have 2-3 sips and my friend gave me empty glass back.

This round I went there realize that they sell ‘Siew Mai’ and decided to grab one again to compare what is the difference with another stall.

After eating eat, my only comment must try! Again the sauce is impressive and very nice. It was mix with sweet sauce, peanut sauce, some chili oil and chili sauce. After you mix with the siew mai and the taste had combine out it had become very addictive. As my friend saw I ate till like that, they grab another cup and just eat till they drop. Around HKD 8

Food rating 9/10 ,Veli Hoh Chiak ah!!!~
This shop is just a few doors away, it sells takoyaki. At last found one which I think is good.
The store outlook is alright and not many people but my friend she was very tired so borrow their tables and we have to buy their food.
They have large stove to be done compare to places like our pasar malam or indoor supermarket which only owned 1/3 of it.
This is what I mean borrow their tables by purchasing the food from next door and eats there because that stall does not have tables. So we were parking there for that moment.
I order the ‘Original Takoyaki cuz I don understand what the girl is mumbling about and I don know how to read chinese so just point lah…and this is wat I get. Which cost me around HKD 25.
By the look itself I was not impress and the first bite that I eat, does not really taste good. Then asked my friend what bout theirs, they shake their head. The filling is does not taste good even we feel that our pasar malam here is much better.
