I have not been back to Ipoh for quite a while and I heard that many new food outlets have sprung up in old town and also Greentown area. I wonder if the old haunts still exist or are they operating side by side with these new outlets. Maybe I should make a 'food' trip back to Ipoh with my camera and check it out. As for me here in KL, I do go out on a search for interesting places to eat and I must say that there are many places which serve very good hawker food that rivals those in Ipoh and Penang. Perhaps some of them have relocated to KL/PJ.

Hi Joe,
I also heard from the grapevine about the new 'makan' places that have sprung up in old town. I was told about a move to rejuvenate that part of the city which is dormant at night. Malaysian hawkers and manufacturers of processed food are actually quite resourceful and innovative. They keep on testing the market with new products and once it catches on, they have to make a quick buck before being swamp by competitors who come rushing in with imitations or look-alike products. During my time in Ipoh, salt-baked chicken ('yim gook gai')was only available in full-service Chinese restaurants. In later years, stalls that sell this delicacy can be found all over the city. In the same vein, I have a feeling that the popular Penang white curry noodles will have to contend with competitors soon.
