20 Dapao : Pork Leg Mee Hoon Soup, My Thai Cuisine

I've made it a habit to cook dinner every day, except on Sundays. My other half and I would gallivant the town in search of food, things to do and places to visit on this non-cooking day. You could say it's our 'us' time.

We stumbled upon this pork leg mee hoon (rice vermicelli) soup stall whilst looking for a chicken rice vendor, in an area that is listed on Wikimapia as 'Kawasan Lapang' along Batu 3, Jalan Ipoh. Don't laugh now. I have just edited the map to include this newly discovered food stall for your convenience!

A little about this dapao (takeaway) gem. The pork broth is flavourful, evidence that it has been on the stove for hours. The meat is tender - falling off the bones is another way I would describe it. It was indeed delicious.

Check out the ingredients : Tender pork meat, fish ball, fish cakes, a whole egg, preserved vegetables and the customary garnishing using flat leaf parsley. 

Pork Leg Rice Noodles
A mildly-sour chilli condiment is included with the dapao.

This is the friendly lady who attended to our order.

My Thai Cuisine at Jalan Tiong

I felt it was worth the RM7 considering the slightly bigger portion and how much I enjoyed each slurp.

Location : Jalan Tiong ( http://wikimapia.org/33921799/My-Thai-Cuisine ) - Off Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah (formerly Batu 3, Jalan Ipoh). Between a row of food stalls next to the shoplot that houses the famous Kedai Kopi Mee Bon (a Dim Sum restaurant).

    1. Yes, cooking can take up so much of our time when we get carried away. I love it, but not to an extent where I neglect everything else.
