Best Claypot Yee Mee @ Keay Teow Mee Stall, Ipoh

I've been always a big lover to Yee Mee, and the story all started from this place where my parents used to bring us for a good supper occassionally. Claypot Yee Mee here is so good that it's the only thing I will order no matter what my parents said. Let's check out the best Claypot Yee Mee in Ipoh.

Now the name is a bit funny, Keay Teow Mee stall, it has been there since I'm little boy, like as long as I can remember. So don't expect people can spell very well last time. This stall is located just right along the famous Tong Sui Kai next to the Sam Tet School, some kind of Wai Sek Kai in other places. The shop looks exactly the same as when I'm a little kid, nothing changed, talk about tradition.

Last time, an old man used to prepare the food, but now supposingly the family take over. Multiple stove for claypot yee mee with stacks of eggs and bowls, exactly how I remember it looks like.

Now this is the Claypot Yee Mee that I've been talking about. It's yummilicious that I will come back here just for a pot of this, and I can wallop this even after a supper. This pot of yee mee has a very special smell, and my family used to make jokes that it smell like dead rats. Weird that they think it smell funny, but in fact, it's so tasty that even the smell fill the entire open stall space. I went back the other day just to snap this photograph, and somehow it does not taste as good as last time. Probably because change of the chef, but it's still very good. The recipe is still the same, strong soup taste and special Yee Mee they are using. The smell is still very strong and I still love this place. It might not be the best Claypot Yee Mee anymore for you guys out there, but I will still vote this place as the best Claypot Yee Mee, talk about 30 years churning out the same food non stop.

This stall is also famous for a Ipoh cuisine, that most of my KL friends have no idea what is it. It's call Hor Hee Fun. Try it out next time, so far I only know it's available in Ipoh, no other place serve it =P

If your stomach still have space, don't miss out the stall beside Keay Teow Mee stall. It served very delicious wrapped braised chicken and braised tofu. It's very very delicious but not that healthy, you should know looking at the oil in the photo. But it's very nice, do try it out!

Road side stall and hawkers, don't expect tip-top cleanliness, but if you miss out Tong Sui Kai in Ipoh, you have never been to Ipoh actually. It's part of the traditional food culture in Ipoh, and they have been here for many many years. Again, road side stalls, price also reasonable, so don't worry. There are even Wan Tan Mee that's selling for RM1.60, so go enjoy yourself =)
