For the love of travelling and food, we decided to take leave on 17 December 2012. We headed up north, Kuala Kangsar to be more specific. Reason being is because during our first trip there, we didn't have the chance to sample some of the food highly recommended by other bloggers. Actually, I kinda like the place there, small, quiet town with no major traffic jam. Life is so relaxing and calm there.
We reached Kuala Kangsar just in time for lunch. First stop, we had our 1st lunch at Gerai Yeop Helmi, famous for its Patin Masak Tempoyak and Ikan Sungai Bakar. As mentioned by the locals, I do agree that the Patin Masak Tempoyak is really superb. The first sip of the gravy, you could taste that the ingredients used are made to prefection, not too sour, not too hot - just nice and it blends.

Patin Masak Tempoyak. Though to some, it might look and smell a bit disguisting, but to tempoyak lovers, this is heaven!
After a quick, or shall I say, brief lunch, we then took a stroll by the river. The weather was ok and hence, we decided to do some photo session there.
After the photo session, we then headed to the famous coffee shop, Yut Loy. This coffee shop is famous as this is the place for the MCKK students to hang out. Yut Loy also is well known for its delicious-yeast free pau.
We ordered hainanese chicken chop, Meat on Toast, chicken and kaya pau. One thing I notice is that the kaya used in the kaya pau is homemade and one could taste the ginger generously added into the kaya. The chicken chop is cooked to prefection, so does the Meat on Toast. I suspected that the meat is fried with marmite first before ended up being put on the toasted bread. The kaya is nice, it is fluffy and full of flavours.

We were really full by the time we left Yut Loy. We then headed back to Lembah to tapau some laksa to take home. The famous laksa there is Laksa Pak Ngah. Unfortunately, it is only available in the form of take away. They wont serve the laksa there. I personally regretted for buying only one pack of the RM10.00. It is really delicious, full of flavours and one could not stop of having more and more laksa after the first bite.
After buying back the laksa, we headed straight home. We reached Sepang around 7:30 p.m. Though it's tiring, we have to admit that we did enjoy ourselves this time round. Hope to be able to arrange another session soon....
