Ipoh’s Curry Noodles

All About Ipoh’s Curry Noodles 

– 15 of the Best

Ipoh Famous Curry Mee

1. Nam Chau – Started in old town (Jalan Bandar Timah) of Ipoh , famous for the dry curry noodles (for best effect, try a combination of yellow mee + kuey teow/flat rice noodles). Good also for the half-boiled eggs on toast, and creamy milk tea, white coffee or ‘cham’ (mixture of both). Location : Old Town of Ipoh .
2. Yee Fatt – A true-blue Hainanese classic, no frills here. Pure thick, robust and spicy curry paste on noodles with char siew and chicken. Some people swear by their ‘Lor Mai Gai’ (glutinous rice with chicken and mushroom) too, but beware of their diluted milk tea/coffee. Try the herbal egg instead. Location : Opposite of MGS (Methodist Girls’ School) on Jalan Kampar.
3. Yat Yat Seng – This ain’t too bad, but the lady owner may be a little obnoxious. And this stall serves a reputable chicken rice for lunch as well. Location : Facing the Ipoh Garden roundabout; opposite of post office.
4. Xin Quan Fang – The infamous “Ma Da Liew” (police station) curry mee in town. Decades of legacy, and the pungent side of spicy sambal paste with lard oil is a must! Just don’t walk over and rush for your orders, unless you’re itching for some smackdown. Location : Hugh Low Street (Jalan Sultan Iskandar)
5. Woh Heng – Opposite of the former Foh San dim sum on Osborne Street , this stall has a following too. Not as spectacular, but take note of the wantan mee stall next to this. Good with braised pork noodles, chicken feet and mushroom noodles, etc. Location : Opposite of old Foh San.
6. Twin Sisters Food Stall – Amazingly, these feisty ladies are still there! Try the bite-sized fried ‘liew’ (stuffed fish paste and meatballs), though the curry itself is forgettable. Location : Jalan Ali Pitchay; off Hugh Low Street and Yang Kalsom Road .
7. Tim Shun Loong – Though I can’t attest to this curry mee here, many are head over heels in love with this. Even then, come night or day, you can see hordes of people eating at this coffee shop.Location : Off Jalan Tokong/Jalan King, walkable from Tuck Kee Restaurant.
8. Sun Seng Fatt – Another old town classic; they used to export their curry paste over to Hong Kong ! Was miserable before, but the last few times we tried, the curry mee actually improved. Remember to grab a plate of the chili paste and the prepared lime juice in a squeezer bottle. Nifty ideas? Location : Old Town , Jalan Bandar Timah. Somewhere between Nam Chau and Kong Heng.
9. Ipoh Garden Curry Mee – One of the better ones in Ipoh ; originating from the famous stalls named “Tung Koo Thing” (Aneka Selera) in Ipoh Garden . The rojak stall here used to be good, but wonder if it’s still around? Location : Jalan Pasir Puteh
10. Leong Kee – Situated a stone’s throw away from Mee Kari Ipoh Garden, you will not believe that Leong Kee used to be, and still is a famous eatery for porridge, bean sprouts chicken and curry mee. Very rundown, but then again … this IS street food at its finest, no? Location : Jalan Pasir Puteh.
11. Keng Nam – I prefer the glutinous rice with egg jam (kaya) instead, and that’s a MUST order. The curry mee was mediocre, but still you will be surprised by the popularity of this. Location : End of Cowan Street before Tower Regency Hotel
12. Kafe Tim – A relatively new stall; in Medan Ipoh Bistari where the Japanese restaurants are. Probably the least notable of the group, but some still proclaim this as the best. Maybe a serious dearth of good ones around Ipoh Garden East? Location : Medan Ipoh Bistari, a corner coffee shop.
13. Foo Kwai – With delicious cuts of caramelized char siew, and tonnes of ‘yeung liew’ to go with the noodles. Bear the wait, and you shall be rewarded. Location : Bercham; same row with Maybank.
14. Chuan Fatt – Another classic in Pasir Puteh, this stall is famous for the fried chicken, assam chicken, etc to complement the curry noodles. Spicier than most. Location : Jalan Pasir Puteh, almost right by the traffic lights connecting Jalan King and Jalan Pasir Puteh.
15. New Weng Fatt – Popularly known as ‘Fei Lou’ curry mee, this stall was from the opposite coffee shop named New Hiong Yuen before the restaurant was closed. Not as good as I had imagined though.Location : Ipoh Garden South.

**And there you have it! 15 of the more prominent curry mee stalls in Ipoh . I have missed out a few, most notably Merdeka Garden Curry Mee that opens only at night, the real “Tung Koo Thing” curry mee at Medan Aneka Selera in Ipoh Garden, etc.

Ethics for a Whole World

Beyond Religion;

Ethics for a Whole World 

By His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"We need to recognise two things. 

The first is that religion is not the only way to pursue a spiritual life. There are indeed ways of living the fulfilling and contented lives we all desire which do not require religious belief. 

The second is that in order to build a harmonious and peaceful world, we require more than just tolerance and understanding between the various religions. We also need mutual tolerance and understanding between believers (of whatever faith) and non-believers. Between those with religion and those without…. 

In my view, the most promising avenue is to be found in a system of secular ethics grounded in a deep appreciation of our common humanity." 

... The Dalai Lama

10 Surprising Health Benefits of Beer.

Start drinking more beers everyday from now onwards!

10 Surprising Health Benefits of Beer.

By Lisa Collier Cool

Day in Health
by Lisa Collier Cool

Beer drinkers rejoice: Your favorite brew may be healthier than you think. For years, wine drinkers have indulged without guilt, revelling in the news that red wine can help protect against heart disease. Recent research shows that beer can also be good for what ails you, from reducing risk for broken bones to helping warding off diabetes and mental decline. It can even increase longevity, a large study suggests.However, the key to tapping into beer’s benefits is moderation, meaning just one 12-ounce beer per day for women and two for men. Heavy drinking ups the threat of liver damage, some cancers, and heart problems. Bingeing on brewskis can also make you fat, since a 12-ounce regular beer has about 150 calories, while light beer has about 100.

Here are 10 surprising—and healthy—reasons to cheer about your next beer.

 1. Stronger Bones

Beer contains high levels of silicon, which is linked to bone health.  In a 2009 study at Tufts University and other centers, older men and women who swigged one or two drinks daily had higher bone density, with the greatest benefits found in those who favored beer or wine.  However downing more than two drinks was linked to increased risk for fractures.
For the best bone-building benefits, reach for pale ale, since a 2010 study of 100 types of beer from around the word identified these brews as richest in silicon, while light lagers and non-alcoholic beers contained the least.

 2. A Stronger Heart
A 2011 analysis of 16 earlier studies involving more than 200,000 people, conducted by researchers at Italy’s Fondazion di Ricerca e Cura, found a 31 percent reduced risk of heart disease in those who quaffed about a pint of beer daily, while risk surged in those who guzzled higher amounts of alcohol, whether beer, wine, or spirits.
More than 100 studies also show that moderate drinking trims risk of heart attacks and dying from cardiovascular disease by 25 to 40 percent, Harvard reports. A beer or two a day can help raise levels of HDL, the “good” cholesterol that helps keep arteries from getting clogged.

 3. Healthier Kidneys

A study in Finland singled out beer among other alcoholic drinks, finding that each bottle of beer men drank daily lowered their risk of developing kidney stones by 40 percent. One theory is that beer’s high water content helped keep kidneys working, since dehydration increases kidney stone risk.
It’s also possible that the hops in beer help curb leeching of calcium from bones; that “lost” calcium also could end up in the kidneys as stones.

4. Boosting Brain Health
A beer a day may help keep Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia at bay, researchers say.
A 2005 study tracking the health of 11,000 older women showed that moderate drinkers (those who consumed about one drink a day) lowered their risk of mental decline by as much as 20 percent, compared to non-drinkers. In addition, older women who downed a drink a day scored as about 18 months “younger,” on average, on tests of mental skills than the non-drinkers.

5. Reduced Cancer Risk

A Portuguese study found that marinating steak in beer eliminates almost 70 percent of the carcinogens, called heterocyclic amines (HCAs) produced when the meat is pan-fried. Researchers theorize that beer’s sugars help block HCAs from forming.
Scientists also have found that beer and wine contain about the same levels of antioxidants, but the antioxidants are different because the flavonoids found in hops and grapes are different.

6. Boosting Vitamin Levels

A Dutch study, performed at the TNO Nutrition and Food Research Institute, found that beer-drinking participants had 30 percent higher levels of vitamin B6 levels in their blood than their non-drinking counterparts, and twice as much as wine drinkers. Beer also contains vitamin B12 and folic acid.

7. Guarding Against Stroke

Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that moderate amounts of alcohol, including beer, help prevent blood clots that block blood flow to the heart, neck and brain—the clots that cause ischemic stroke, the most common type.

8. Reduced Risk for Diabetes

Drink up: A 2011 Harvard study of about 38,000 middle-aged men found that when those who only drank occasionally raised their alcohol intake to one to two beers or other drinks daily, their risk of developing type 2 diabetes dropped by 25 percent. The researchers found no benefit to quaffing more than two drinks. The researchers found that alcohol increases insulin sensitivity, thus helping protect against diabetes.

9. Lower Blood Pressure
Wine is fine for your heart, but beer may be even better: A Harvard study of 70,000 women ages 25 to 40 found that moderate beer drinkers were less likely to develop high blood pressure—a major risk factor for heart attack—than women who sipped wine or spirits.

10. Longer Life
In a 2005 review of 50 studies, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that moderate drinkers live longer.

The Other Inconvenient Truth

The Other Inconvenient Truth: How Agriculture is Changing the Face of Our Planet

We typically think of climate change as the biggest environmental issue we face today. But maybe it's not? In this presentation, Jonathan Foley shows how agriculture and land use are maybe a bigger culprit in the global environment, and could grow even larger as we look to feed over 9 billion people in the future.
