|Perak Taiping Lake Gardens | Taman Tasik Food Court 24 Hours|
|Thursday, 07 July 2011 00:00|
The charm of Taiping Lake Gardens that serves as the first public park in Malaysia attracted us to detour when we made our first interstate road trip to Ipoh with our little one. My last trip to Taiping Lake Gardens was perhaps more than half a decade ago so I couldn't recall if there were any eateries near the lake.
We settled for Taman Tasik Food Court for lunch after making two loops. Within walking distance from the scenic stretch of rain trees, this eatery also has ample car park. Operating 24 hours as indicated on the signpost, it offers the choices of local hawker food including laksa, chicken rice, noodles, western, a fair bit of Thai flavors and bak kut teh.
My Significant Other (SO) went for a set of bak kut teh (spare ribs herbal tea soup). Offered with a bowl of rice and yu tiau (deep fried flour dough) each, it cost him RM9 though I saw the stall indicated RM7 or RM8 for one person's set. Either my SO was charged for a tourist price or the cost had been revised again, we left the answer to the stall operator .On a hot afternoon, this eatery is certainly not a spot one would stay long. Heat transmitted from zinc roof and dirty public toilets chased us away as soon as we filled up our hungry mouths.
Despite the flip side, the bak kut teh was good and the bean sprout chicken rice was up to par.Perhaps our next visit to Taiping Lake Garden, we will go with our picnic baskets so that we could tuck in while enjoying the picturesque landscape!
