The Gravy For Dip For Side Dishes

(The thick gravy is a perfect match with the side dishes. You should not miss this.)

Curry Mee + Bee Hoon

(The curry gravy is marvellous, the best in Malaysia and of course Ipoh. Not so milky taste which is great, course you won't feel bloated even though you whacked 2 -3 bowls. A bowl without meat is only RM 1.50)
