From the Burpple community

Here is the Rojak I highly recommend ordering a plate of if you at “Big Tree Foot” to have the famous “Liu Fen” (also known to us Singaporeans as “Yong Tau Fu”).
I found it very fresh and tasty with a perfectly balanced sauce. The peanut element was very fine, more like a powder really. But the kicker for me has to be the “Har Bing”, a locally-produced prawn biscuit which you can add on.


Although there is, quite literarily, a big tree growing through the roof (swipe to see the video), this food court is not the original location of the famous “Big Tree Foot” or “Dai Shu Geok” “Liu Fen” (that’s what the locals in Ipoh call “Yong Tau Fu”). They use to be located just a couple of metres away where a copycat has taken over. Not that it matters because the neverending crowds at the existing location makes it look perfectly plausible as the spot where business took root.
As you enter the very spacious casual food court, you can see a large variety of the “Yong Tau Fu” (or “Liu Fen” which is what the locals in Ipoh call it) laid out in colorful rectangular baskets. Cut big and chunky, they are freshly prepared and fried. Just grab one of the colorful round baskets from the stack and help yourself to whatever you like. Even if something you want has run out, just wait for a while because the team keeps track of the food and replenishes quite quickly.
One of the special items you should not miss is what looks like a thick golden brown disc. Called “Sah Gok Liu”, it is formed from turnip with fish paste, plus a sheet of beancurd skin to hold its juicy, soft sweetness together. Personally, I prefer the vegetable items as I find the style of fish paste here, to pair very well with them. The eggplant, green chilli and twirled up long beans were my favourites. Unlike the style we get in Singapore, there is no sweet sauce to dip or splash over. Instead, only a tangy chilli sauce is available but it does the trick. You can also opt to enjoy your “Yong Tau Fu” with the noodles of your choice.
If the Rojak stall is open, do order a plate to try as well because it is really good, especially with the unique-to-Ipoh crunchy “prawn biscuits” which you can add on.
To wash it all down, the ice-cold milky red bean drink is the one to get.

You certainly can here at this stall in the Dai Shu Geok Big Tree Foot food court. Not the best that I’ve ever tasted but the saving grace is that you can have this in the morning more than makes up for it. The crispy skin was good but the overall meat was lacking in flavour.

Fried Beancurd and fish cake. Bell pepper, lady finger and eggplant. Side with laksa or curry mee. The skilled cook gave the perfect brown on the ingredient placed with light and umami soup. It was a good place to dine but I won’t Q to eat there.
