Healthy Lei Cha 河婆健康擂茶 @ Kampung Tawas



Photobucket

This place I last time visited quite frequently during my internship last year. (For the address and contact, you can see from the image above). Omg, how time flew crazily without mercy! Oredy 1 year! I feel so old! Anyhow, let's talk a bit about this traditional delicacy!

1st - It is a often by being referred as Hakka (客家)food; But, from where I come from, I was told that it is originated from Hopo (河婆). Anyway, they have similar culture with almost similar accent. 

2nd - It is a mixed of various vegetables with minimal rice along with a very nice "green soup" (Some people would feel weird about this soup). Of course, it is not entirely meat-free because some dried shrimps are used in this dish in a traditional way! But, it is again up to you what you want to put in~

Usually, eating this delicacy, I would order another yong tau fu to accompany the luicha~~Hahaha, yup, the owner is an old lady who is always busy taking care of her grandson(^^)~~

I absolutely warn you never to visit this place if you are looking for a decent lui cha. She sells overnight veges and tofu, and some of the meat on stuffed tofu is not cooked (blood inside) and the soup is not only watered, it is starched. In you are in Ipoh, go to Greentown's Wah Chai.
