🌱🌱🌱VEGAN FOOD ADVENTURES with Raw Chef Yin - Suka Kafe in Ipoh 😋😋😋

It’s quite interesting how we ended up at Suka Kafe.
Initially I was planning to go to Vegan Life but then Vegan Life is closed on Tuesdays.
Then I thought maybe I could try Su Sum since one of you recommended the place “For old time shop, Su Sum in Taman Canning is good”.

But then I was searching through hashtags on Instagram for #veganipoh and #ipohvegan and the pix of Suka Kafe’s dry curry noodles popped up and it looked good.
Yunno lah, me and my curry! I have such a soft spot for curry.

Anyways, I searched for Suka Kafe’s menu and found it on Facebook.
2 things popped out.
1️⃣Firstly, they offered all the noodle dishes that I so loved before I became vegan. Wheeee!
2️⃣And secondly, all the vegan items on the menu were clearly marked.
So instead of Su Sum, we decided to head to Suka Kafe.

Here’s what we had:
🍜Kolo Mee RM10
🍜Dry Curry Noodle (we chose the kuey teow) RM12.50
🍜Kuey Teow Soup RM12.50
Mr Jazz Guitarist was still hungry after all that so we went for a rice dish as well:
🍚Ginger Hericium Mushroom Rice RM12.00

🔥I think I died and went to Sarawak heaven when eating the Kolo Mee. I used to have Kolo Mee more than 20 years ago when I travelled to Kuching for work. But usually kolo mee noodles have eggs so it’s hard to get them. Oh, I think when I was in Miri a few years back I did have eggless kolo mee. Or maybe that was in Brunei at a vegetarian place. The point is, I got to eat vegan kolo mee. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

🔥Another thumbs up from us for this! The curry was bursting with flavour and since I didn’t want mock meats they replaced with more tofu for us. Yayyyyy 🙂

🔥Kuey Teow Soup
The first sip brought me memories of how I used to have kuey teow soup for lunch on weekends when I was a kid. It was the exact flavour that I had grown up with. Wahhhh, I didn’t realise how much I’ve missed this.

When I eat out, I usually choose rice over noodles because rice is most likely less processed than noodles but I actually love noodles, especially noodles in soup as they’re so comforting. And good kuey teow is so soft and silky - such a sensory pleasure.

Actually Kar Weng did ask me whether I wanted the fried foo chook, and I said ok to that coz I felt if I keep omitting everything then no point eating the dishes, right? But then I took a bite and realised oh dear, this isn’t healthy. Haha. It’s tough to eat healthy when eating out lah… I should have said no to the fried stuff.

🔥The Ginger Hericium Mushroom Rice reminded me of chicken rice. Oooh, that chilli sauce really hit the spot.

It was a pleasure meeting Lam Kar Weng who runs the place and we had a nice chat learning more about Suka Kafe and the philosophy behind it. Especially the elephant paintings on the wall. Thanks Kar Weng for your hospitality!
Definitely a place I want to go back again if I’m ever back in Ipoh.
(my next destination in mind is Melaka and Langkawi…)

FUN FACT: Suka Kafe is spelt with a “K” and not a “C”. More local mah 🙂
👍👍👍👍👍
