This stall, Leong Pui Kee, is located in Ipoh's famous 'Thong Sui Kai' (Desert Road), next to Robin Hotel. Basically, this stall sells Roti Bak Kua and sorts, but are particularly known for it 'Ngap Kuak Pau' or Chinese preserve meat wrap in duck's feet. This snack is a traditional Chinese snack, and is often savoured at movies or fun fairs during the olden days.



The ngap kuak pau is made of Chinese preserved meat (lap yuk), lard, ducks feet, soya bean sheet (fu chuk) and the special stewing gravy, the gravy used for roti bak kua. The lard is placed in between the ducks feet and the preserved meat, thus if you might noticed it. The snack is now not common in Penang, if found it is often the reduced version, without the whole duck feet or replaced with chicken feet.


I have actually tried out this treat in the past and still go back for more, may be because it is not easily found in Penang. I can still remember the days when the small independent cinemas are still around, road side stalls selling snack treats like cutted fruits, roti bak kuah, hamburger, steam peanuts, etc. Those were the days, cheap and good!

The Ngap Kuak Pau tastes sweet, creamy and rich because of the lard piece and preserved meat that is wrap on the feet. The texture is starchy because of the secretion of juices from the duck feet and firm to slight hard(if taken cold) due to the existence of the preserved meat. It is an experience not to miss and forget!


On average, I would give this place:
  • 3.8/5 for value
  • 4/5 for taste & texture
  • 3/5 for service
  • 3.5/5 for cleanliness
  • 3/5 for atmosphere (hawker stall, where got!)

    This ngap kuak pau looks different from those reddish ones that I had in KL Petaling Street.

    This is soak in gravy. With your info...I am definitely going to try it out on my Ipoh trip.
