Restaurant Moon de Moon – Best Kai Si Hor Fun in Ipoh? At least that’s what my parents think, because they have been going to the same coffee shop, ordering the same bowl of kai si hor fun week after week.
We have tried the widely popular Thean Chun’s kai si hor fun, Lok Wui Gui, Little Katong’s CEO kai si hor fun (the recipe is developed by Tasek Cement’s CEO) located at Little Genting (another branch at Restoran Sin Hoong Fatt in Canning Garden), but we still prefer Restaurant Moon de Moon’s version.
Located around 15 minutes from town, this little stall is also famous for their dry curry noodles. We had to wait for about 30 minutes even on a normal weekday. Ipoh folks must have love their kai si hor fun very much.
A good bowl of kai si hor fun is made of super smooth hor fun, shredded chicken, chopped spring onions, boiled shrimps, garnished with fried shallots. However, the true essence is the clear looking but flavourful stock made from long hours of boiling chicken bones and prawn shells, as well as that aromatic prawn oil floating on top.
Moon de Moon’s version ticked all the right boxes, and I couldn’t resist slurping down all the noodles and the soup till the last drop.
It is good to order some Ipoh style chee cheong fun and nyonya kueh while waiting for your bowls of noodles.
