LIEW KEE (AH LEK) CHEE CHEONG FUN-TELUK INTAN.

After a light seafood dinner at Restoran Nagaria in Teluk Intan, we visited my sil Yoke, whose house is just next door to the famous landmark Liew Kee (Ah Lek) Chee Cheong Fun (fat rice noodles in the form of sheets-rolled up and cut in bite size pieces).

It was about 9 pm on a hot humid Saturday night and already there was a long queue waiting to buy their specialty CCF for takeaway.

My Sil, Yoke as a neighbor was given first preference and she bought 5 packets (Rm3/each) of CCF cooked in 2 variants for us.

The process of making the CCF takes less than a minute- a thin layer of the milky white rice flour mixture and the various ingredients were poured into an Aluminium tray-then it was placed into a conveyor driven hot steamer - when it comes out at the other end - it's cooked!

This CCF tasted better-the skin was white, smooth, not too oily and covered with sweet Turnip, deep fried aromatic Shallots and crispy deep fried dried Shrimps.

While this CCF was plain, a bit salty and the rice noodle sheets were covered with deep fried crispy dried Shrimps and chopped fragrant Spring onion only.

Location:725, Jalan Hill,
Teluk Intan, Perak.
Tel: 05-6216-884.
Open-5.30pm-7 am

Looks delicious! So much CCF. I have never seen that conveyor belt before. Does the conveyor belt roll out the cheong fun or do the people do that?

Never have Teluk Intan CCF b4, but I don't like fried shallot, so means I won't like the CCF too ?

ETEaT-the guy at the end will empty the tray and roll it manually.
SGirl-you should make a CCF omelette with it!
mimid3vils-oh! what a waste, you should give it a try.

I LOVE CCF!!! Too bad that here in Jakarta, we don't have many varieties of it, only the beef and prawn versions.

This must be the Teluk Intan heritage site for its most famous produce !

We have been treated to a few packets of Teluk Intan CCf a few times sometime back and each time we were informed that they could not get the original one...

Selba-have not try the beef CCF, is it good?
BSG-yes, this is the original one.

Ah.. here is your post of CCF! :)

Looks different than our Indonesian version aka Medan version (the street food).

Oh.. the beef filling is nice but I prefer the prawns one. CCF with filling only can be found at Chinese rest during dim sum.
