So when it comes to which is the best Kai Si Hor Fun in Ipoh, well, you’re bound to have some disagreements among the experts in this field. Today, we’re going to talk about Moon De Moon kopitiam’s version, which many hailed as the best version in all of Ipoh.
Moon De Moon is located in the Northern part of town, just some 5-7 minutes drive from Ipoh/Tambun exit. Parking around the kopitiam is usually fairly easy to find since it’s located quite a fair bit away from town center. However, getting a table in the restaurant itself can sometimes be a bit of a challenge as this place is usually rather packed especially during weekends.
We reached the packed restaurant on a Saturday at around 10am, initially wanted to try both their kai si hor fun as well as dried curry noodle, the latter ran out, but luckily we managed to have perhaps the last few bowls of hor fun, just in time!
It did take almost 45 minutes for food to arrive (we had some roast pork as appetizer first), but boy was it worth the wait.
The kai si hor fun came with one of the thickest prawn & chicken broth I’ve tried, alongside with pretty good size prawns, chunks of chicken strips, chives, spring onion, and I think perhaps my favorite ingredient – fried shallots. The combination was superb and we enjoyed it a lot, though I’ve also heard some saying the soup was a tad too sweet for them.
I think we’ll be back to try their dried curry noodle next time.
