Bak Kut Teh • Ipoh Hor Fun (Albert Centre Market & Food Centre)

Bak Kut Teh • Ipoh Hor Fun is a hawker stall located at Albert Centre Market & Food Centre. This food centre located a stone throw away from Bugis MRT station is just behind Bugis Village. This stall is unique as it offers both Bak Kut Teh and Ipoh Hor Fun.
The Bak Kut Teh Menu. 
Ipoh Hor Fun Menu. They offer a few variety of hor fun. 
This stall is operated by two person. The gentleman at the foreground is the owner while the lady is the helper. The lady has since left and the owner had to operate as a one man show for a number of weeks. 
I was glad that during a recent visit, I found out that the owner had managed to hire another helper to help him. Heard from him that it was tough looking for a helper who was willing to work at the food centre as it was hot, stuffy and long hours. 
Shredded Chicken Hor Fun $4
As usual I was a greedy glutton and upsized the Hor Fun to $4. 
Shredded Chicken Hor Fun $4
The Shredded Chicken Hor Fun $4 was served with many pieces of shredded chicken meat, vegetables, slices of mushrooms and a lots of hor fun. I liked the mushrooms which absorbed the hor fun sauce and was so juicy. The other ingredients were normal. What stood out was the dark Hor Fun gravy which was well executed. The gravy was pleasantly flavourful with the right amount of starch. In addition, there were wolfberries aka Goji in the gravy which gave it a slightly sweet taste.

The gravy complemented the ingredients well making the whole dish so pleasant and delicious.  
Fried Wanton Hor Fun $4
Char Siew Wanton Hor Fun $4
Both the Fried Wanton Hor Fun $4 and Char Siew Wanton Hor Fun $4 were not bad too. The gravy played an important role.

I have always been back and tried their different variations of Ipoh Hor Fun and have not tried their Bak Kut Teh before. If you have tried it, do let me know how it fared.

Overall, this stall; Bak Kut Teh • Ipoh Hor Fun serves a decent plate of Hor Fun accompanied by generous serving of ingredients. It may not be the best but, for the price it was certainly value for money.
