Hakka Mee at Taman Timur in Ipoh, Malaysia


Hakka mee is quite a famous dish in the town of Ipoh. As there are also a few well known Hakka Noodle stalls located around Ipoh town, this noodle shop I went to was located in Taman Timur or Ipoh East and at restaurant called Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Taman Timur and is actually quite easy to find.

So, what are Hakka Noodles? They are a type of yellow noodles cooked in water and served almost dry or with soup and topped with minced chicken or pork and condiments. Each Hakka Noodle stall will be judged by the texture of the noodles and the taste of the sauce. There are a variety of Hakka noodle stalls around Malaysia which serves this dish in their own style, mostly passed on by generations.

After you enter the Jusco, turn right at the traffic lights and head all the way about 1km. You will pass under a fly over and after the fly over, you will see a row of shoplots on your right. This restaurant is the last shop at the end. There is much parking around the area as well.

The stall is located right in front of the coffee shop next to the Nonya Cake/Kueh stall. Ordering your noodles can be quick or you may have to wait, depending on the amount of people there. It took him about 15 minutes before our noodles came so it was average waiting.

The stall also sells Yong Tau Foo and they are pretty alright for taste compared to most I have tried. Yong Tau Foo is a type of Chinese food dish where fish paste is stuffed in bean curd and other vegetables, home made fish ball and meat balls.

The overall taste for the dish, I would give it a 8/10. I have also tried the other noodles in town area where they seem to do it a little better than this one here. For the noodle lovers and fans, you should give this a try next time you make a trip to Ipoh, Perak.

Ice Pomelo Drink

This time around, I could not resist trying the Ice Pomelo drink as I have never seen this being sold until coming to this restaurant in Ipoh. On a neutral point of view, this is a total rip off. The taste is not there and a little sweet.

Chicken Rice Stall

This restaurant also claims to have one of the better Chicken Rice stall selling Roasted Chicken, Char Siew (Roasted Sweet Pork) and Siew Yoke (Roast Pork). Well, I only ordered a plate with all three items mixed without rice. Overall, it was just average to my taste. I have had better in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

On a more personal note, I am not a huge fan of noodles but once in a way, I would indulge in a plate of noodles which would be the dry type. Wan Tan Noodles are my favourite until I discovered the Hakka Mee in Ipon, Malaysia.
