Noodle Throwing in Bercham

Have you heard of noodle acrobatics? I suppose all of us have watched this in some travel programmes on ASTRO. If you want to see a live show, you can perhaps go to Shanxi where the people turn the simple act of noodle making into over-the-top acrobatics. Such amazing stunts can rarely be seen in Malaysia. Some shops may have hired the expatriates to perform the same act in the restaurant but I believe you will have to fork out more money for the bowl of noodles. 

I have discovered a place where I can sit comfortably while watching an even more stunning noodle acrobatics without extra charges. In other words, you only pay for the food and get a free entertainment in return. 

This is my favourite wonton noodle stall in Bercham - Tai Kong Coffee Shop

Bravo!!! Shouldn't he be given an award for such an impressive noodle throwing act?

This is what you get: springy noodles tossed with just the right amount of soy sauce.

Their shrimp wonton is also one of the best in Ipoh.
Don't you think it looks like a gold fish? That's the perfect wonton shape as being defined by the Hongkies.

A complete set of wonton noodles (plus free entertainment) @ RM2.60

    I wanna join in the fun. I never even heard about this stall. Though the prawn wantan at Shine Noodles in Bercham is good enough, though pricey at RM1 each.

  5. J2Kfm:

    What?!! RM1.00 each? It's perhaps the most pricey in Ipoh. May be they include abalone into the filling.
