Tuck Kee (Ipoh) Sah Ho Fun – Everyone queues for their crayfish hor fun!
30 minutes. It took me about 30 minutes to queue for this stall during lunch time. It is my first time eating ipoh hor fun, in my memory. I chose to queue at this stall because of the huge crayfish on their hor fun. We seldom see such crayfish in hawker centres except for some cze char stalls.
You get the whole crayfish and some prawns.The crayfish and prawns are fresh. The crayfish is cut into half so it is easy to remove the meat. The prawns are already deshelled so you can just eat them.
The hor fun is very smooth. Unlike the usual thick hor fun which we see in cze char stalls, the ipoh style hor fun is thinner, about half the size.
The gravy is an important part for this dish. I read from somewhere saying that it is made from prawns and chicken bones. Unfortunately, I feel the light brown gravy quite bland and it didn’t make the entire dish more tasty.
Crayfish Hor Fun costs $6.50. If you don’t feel like crayfish, you can go for other options such as chicken or prawn hor fun.
