Nuts and Chee Cheong Fun from Teluk Intan


There were several stalls selling steam groundnuts in Teluk Intan. I am not sure if Teluk Intan is famous for them or what but when I see rows of stalls selling the same stuff, I couldn’t resist getting some. Kinda tourist mentality, isn’t it? Whatever is sold, must buy.


Nice, large groundnuts. RM5 for 1 kilogramme. The nuts were fresh but not soft and salty enough.


I know Teluk Intan is famous for it’s chee cheong fun and went hunting for a stall around the town.


I do not know where to find the best stall so any old stall will do. It was the first day of Hari Raya and the whole town is practically ‘sleeping’. Finally, found one behind a Chinese temple. What I like about Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun is it’s simplicity. I can’t figure out what are those brown bits but I heard they are preserved cabbages. The chee cheong fun has no sauce unlike those stinky ones in Penang or the Ipoh kind with soya sauce.

Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun only has some preserved green chillies to accompany this plain, simple taste steamed rice noodles.

Anyone can give me some leads where to find the best chee cheong fun, Teluk Intan style?

    Teluk Intan is my hometown. I will tell you where is the best and originator of this CCF. It is one of the stalls along the street that is beside the chinese temple. Generally regarded as part of the old market. It should have a generous amount of dried prawns and “choy poh” and to be taken just with prickled green chillies, – no sauce except maybe soya sauce. Beside, this CCF stall, the next stall sells steamed gultinous rice with char siew – very simple, just gultinous rice and a piece of char siew and it is very popular and nice. Maybe now, they may have had other accompaniments. ( I do not stay there now)

    My friends and I, all from Singapore, would be visiting Teluk Intan before heading for Brinchang, Cameron Highlands. I find your contributions to this site very helpful and interesting. Would anyone tell me how long it takes to drive from TI to Brinchang, CH?

    Thank you.

    Irene – I am not too sure how many hours exactly but I can tell you that it is very near. There are two ways, one is to use the old Tapah road. The other is the new Simpang Pulai way. Do use the Simpang Pulai one ‘cos it is really scenic minus the puking curves of old Tapah Road. I had written something in my Penang Faces blog too. Do check out the links?

    Hello everyone

    Last month, my friends and I drove to Teluk Intan, Cameron Highlands and Kuala Lumpur. We have had a great time. Thanks to your contributions of ideas.

    This weekend, we are driving to Segamat. I would like to attend mass in a catholic church, but do not know of any. Can anyone help? It would be useful to know where we should stay and eat. I appreciate your recommendations.

    Thank you.
