I think everybody agrees that small towns in Malaysia will always surpise us with good food. Remember I blogged about Chan Siew Heng claypot rice in Kampar? It was closed when I was there yesterday. My Kampar's relative recommended Fook Kee, just beside Watson's. It was closed as well. Hmm, no luck for good food huh??? Nope, there is always back-up - - we headed to Lam Kee for our claypot rice. I have not tried Lam Kee before, but according to the locals, Lam Kee is second best after Chan Siew Heng.
Lam Kee is situated at the corner shop towards the end of Jalan Idris. We were there around 6.45pm, the place already crowded, maybe because the other 2 shops were closed?? Anyway, the fragnant of the claypot was really alluring, especially the salted fish smell.
The ingredients were generous here at Lam Kee. I feel in terms of taste it is comparable to Chan Siew Heng. I'll give a 7/10.
Besides the nice claypot rice, we also ordered some nice Yeong Liu at the stall selling Loh Shu Fun / rat noodles behind Lam Kee. The fried fish ball is something I love in Kampar, and of course the Loh Shu Fun in Kampar is really nice...must try if you visit Kampar.
That's not the end, another gem of Kampar food is at the market. A stall selling kuih muih at Kampar market only at night....super crowded even before open....people waiting for it to open.It is advisable to go around 8pm.
I especially love the glutinous rice ball dessert ..the skin was so soft with pandan touch and the filling of peanuts were rich and succulent.
Before the kuih arrived
See the crowd then...soon after the kuih arrived
See the fresh and treacly kuih...tempting!!
Most of the kuih sold at this stall are super good. Really worth to pay a visit when you are in Kampar!
