Jalan Ali Pitchay is where another of my favorite restaurant, Lee How Fook is located at. Is this restaurant still in existence? Because of time constraints, I did not eat there in my previous visit to Ipoh. This restaurant has been known for its consistently good food and great service, and it has been around for a very long time.

Ken, Lee How Fook is now off Kampar Road .... near Chateau Garden. When they were still at Jalan Ali Pitchay, my accountant, Herbert J Ho Jr had his office near Winner Hotel. Whenever I met Herbert at his office to discuss matters, we usually ended up at Lee How Fook to have lunch. And talking about Winner Hotel, can anyone remember the name of the nightclub upstairs?

Hi Kayes, I'm not sure if it was just called Winner Nightclub or was it Latin Quater. We used to play at the Tea-Dance in the Sixties. Though it was called Tea-dance, liquor and beer was served and sometimes it could turn up unruly. As for Lee How Fook near Chateau Garden, it is called Sun Lee How Fook now. Ample parking there but you have to pay a buck or so to the jaga kereta boys as they will normally ask "Tip Tada kah?".

Hi, Joe. Latin Quarter was the nightclub above Greenfern Coffeehouse on Hugh Low Street. Speaking of that part of Hugh Low Street, does anyone know if Kok Kee Restaurant is still in business?

Phoebe, the Kok Kee restaurant that was beside Green Fern closed and became a furniture shop. They opened up in Bercham under the name Sun Kok Kee restaurant but it doesn't taste that good anymore. Still, they seem to pack in the crowd there.

Hi Joe, you must have been to most of the restaurants and hawker stalls in Ipoh. If you keep a log of all those restaurants, it must be a mile long! Glad to know that Sun Kok Kee is a pale shadow of the original, and I will keep that in mind. What about Luen Seng, which located next to Foo Yet Khai Building? Is this bungalow-style eatery still in existence?

Joe, thanks for the info on Kok Kee, one of my favourite restaurants in the '70s. If I'd known about Sun Kok Kee in Bercham, I'd certainly have tried to have dinner there as I was staying at my brother's place near there (in Taman Ria).
