If you have recently travelled to Taiping or Maxwell Hill in Perak, you might wonder where you could take a trip down the hidden path of the locals for some good food? Here I would like to share with you the little sleepy town less known to the outside world except those found out from word of mouth. Take a trip down to Kuala Sepetang which is about 15 minutes drive away from the town of Taiping.
As you drive north towards Penang, take the Changkat Jering exit 146. It should take approximately 15 minutes on a 60km/h. Be vary that you shouldnâ€™t speed on the route as it is made of 1-lane road on each way.
Drive towards the end of the road where you reach this small settlement near a port known as Kuala Sepetang (Kuala is port in Bahasa Melayu).
You can choose to park your car at the shoulder of the road and walk towards the street hawkers that is located at the junction near the end of the road.
Here you will find a stall that operates for at least more than a decade as a family business selling nothing but noodles and ice blended drinks.
On a perfect sunny day, you can choose any table to sit and place your orders right away, however on festive seasons. Expect it to be ridiculously crowded.
So what do I do here?
You eat, like a boss. There are various type of delicacy you can try, with dessert, you can consider the A.B.C.
or the thick ice blended red bean juice.
After cooling down your thirsty throat, remember to place an order on the Laksa, served with a sweet and sour soup filled with bits of fish meats within.
Perhaps, you can also try the Dry curry noodle.
Despite the unsightly presentation style of the food, the taste is pretty decent and rightly priced. I hope you enjoy travelling to this little place where is a good stop after a tour around the town of Taiping.
