Belakang Bomba Mar 07, 2011
Belakang Bomba is not the name of a restaurant but a descriptive phrase letting you know where it is. In Malay, "Belakang Bomba" means "behind the fire station." And that is where these set of food stalls are--behind the fire station in Perak's historical town of Taiping. There is another outdoor food court immediately next to it (Pusat Penjaja Taiping), but this one is halal for those who are specifically looking for that. The specialty of this place is its yong tau foo. It came highly recommended so we gave it a try...and it certainly did not disappoint. It tasted great. And the portions were huge! In fact, we had to take our leftovers back to the hotel--could not finish. (We later realized that we had no utensils and the vendor did not include our 'wooden eating sticks' so eating it later that night was a serious challenge)! As with all yong tau foo places, you pick what you want from a bunch of plates and have it boiled for you. It is then mixed on a plate with a thick, sweet sauce and topped with crushed peanuts. The prices of the individual items were all different, but if you don't get carried away with choosing too many items, it is quite cheap. The fruit juices at the stall across the hall were nice and refreshing. I recommend the watermelon juice or the longan with lime juice. Although I did not have it here, the ais kacang (shaved ice dessert--or sometimes drink depending on how slow you eat it) is supposed to be really nice from this place too. Give it a try if you are in Taiping.
