Kakak Taiping

This place is like a "historical place" in Taiping. Anyone who lives or grew up in Taiping would definitely know this place of noodle or mee. In fact, it is like a meeting place for those who return from overseas.

It becomes the first stop of the day. A place where nice hot chicken kuey tiow soup with bean strout and shallot is served. A place where you can get wantan mee,noodle and all the good noodly stuff and hot or cold beverage. For me, it is always kuey tiow soup with sambal chilli and teh peng (ice tea with milk) or kopi peng (ais coffee with milk). (I don't understand how people can take kuey tiow soup with just cut chilli when sambal chilli taste so good). The price of the food here had increased over the years. I used to pay about RM0.70 for a bowl of kuey tiow or noodle soup but it costs me RM2.50 now. Well, still a good deal when compared to other varieties of food in the city.

So, if you are in Taiping, make sure you visit Kakak in the morning! If you've not, you've not really visited Taiping!

Total Costs: RM3.70 for a mouthwatering breakfast! Worth it, man!

Address: 111, Jalan Pasar, 34000, Taiping, Perak.

Good for you! I didnt know that you are also a food critic. I did try out MrBBQ last month (along with my fav Kakak). The price at MrBBq is very low compared with the rest. If they keep this up, very soon restaurants like Soon Lee will soon have to think of something else to fight back.

Anyway, keep on posting.
