    Among Ipoh's best-known local delicacy is the chicken rice with poached chicken that's seasoned lightly with very good quality soysauce. A common side-dish to this chicken meal will be Ipoh's famous crunchy beanprouts.Locals call this meal "Ngah Choy Kai".

    Plan B: Posh Ipoh

    This restaurant looked pretty new. It was also quite nicely decorated. By Ipoh standards it seemed quite expensive and everything was plus 16%.

    There are two sections: the outside one has ceiling fans but no air-cons, the inside one has ceiling fans and air-con and is unpleasantly cold.

    The food was of a good quality and very tasty. I had chicken; my husband had burger.

    Sports Bistro: Good food, good price.

    by IreneMcKay Updated Feb 15, 2014
    The beer pricing system.

    We decided to eat in the Sports Bistro which faced onto the padang. It is near the Old Town White Coffee Cafe.

    We first noticed this place because of its complicated drink pricing system. As with many places in Ipoh it all depends on the time of day you want to eat. There is no drinks menu inside so you have to work it all out from the pictures displayed outside the front door.

    For the food on offer check out the backboard inside the restaurant. There are main meals and snack foods. I ordered a chicken dish; my husband had a pork burger - pork is available because the restaurant is Chinese. The pork burger was more of a boneless pork chop in a bun. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was very friendly and attentive.

    We returned here for drinks and garlic bread when we were waiting to depart Ipoh by train. We noticed they did a great value 5 course lunch menu. Some other people ordered it and it looked really good, but we could not eat it having consumed a buffet breakfast at our hotel that morning. If you can eat in the heat of the day, this place is great value.

    Restoran Chang Keong Dim Sum: Dim Sum in Ipoh people way

    by DaHongHua Written May 2, 2013
    there are many choice of Dim Sum too !

    I heard local Ipoh people said they perfer cheaper Dim Sum in a typical coffee shop style that not very high class but serve equally good and delicious Dim Sum. When arrival at the morning eatery area that day, I made a quick round before decided where to eat other that the usual choice. Chang Keong Dim Sum is next to another coffee shop, so we decided to have our breakfast here. Seated in the coffee shop, we can order the food from next door. We spent less than RM30 for a good Dim Sum and noodle breakfast for 3 persons, which I can say it was almost half of the price cheaper compared to eating in a higher class restaurant.

  • Yum Yum Restaurant - Nyonya Cuisine In Ipoh: Not Really Yummy At All - A Disappointing Dinner

    by dk79 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Food : Poor, everything seems pre-cooked. You can feel the unfresh texture of the assam prawn paste when it enters your mouth, you just can't feel the UMMPPH in every bite. The worst pandan chicken I'd ever tasted, instead of the whole piece, the chicken was in cubes only & the rest of the food is too salty for my taste.
    Service : Needs Help. Service is Poor. Sarcastic restaurant owner makes the whole meal unpleasant
    Ambience : Average

    Favorite Dish: NIL

    Hill Top Kafe: Industrial looking hawker place

    by Willettsworld Written Aug 21, 2010

    This rather industrial looking place is a hawker place and was just located along the road from where I was staying. I came here to see what they did for breakfast and luckily for me they served a western breakfast as I don't really like noodles for breakfast. I wasn't disappointed, it was wonderful - ham, bacon, sausage, eggs, beans, toast and coffee for RM6.40! Really did the job! There was a western guy working here as well who looked at me, surprisingly, and smiled in approval.

    Crazy Ice Cream & Salad House: Great sundaes!

    I stumbled upon this place after visiting the large Ipoh Parade Shopping Mall one night, nearby, and, even though I wasn't all that hungry after eating a good lunch of lamb chops (see my other restaurant tips), I thought I would try out an ice cream, here. They do around a dozen or so ice cream sundaes and mine came with 3 scoops of ice cream, some fruit salad pieces and a Malaysian flag! I also had a nice banana milkshake to wash everything done and it only cost me RM9. They also serve some dishes and salads.

    Momo Cafe: Good lunch set menus

    This "cafe" is more a Chinese buffet restaurant that offers 'steamboats' - a set price of raw ingredients that you cook yourself to make a hot pot. I came here for lunch as I was exploring the Old Town and had a good meal of lamb chops, fries, salad, chicken soup, ice cream and orange juice for just RM10.80. Bargain! They do a few other set lunch menus which are very good value.

    Restoran Aun Kheng Lim Salted Chicken: Salted Herbal Chicken

    by yipsufen Updated Nov 26, 2009
    Aun Kheng Lim salted chicken

    Since 1987. Drive in front of the shop & give a honk then you can purchase your chicken. It's like drive through service.

    It's a must try in Ipoh. Wrapped in oil paper and cooked in a big steel pot, the chicken emanates a sweet fragrance that is simply irresistible. Chinese Angelica is added to the kampong chicken and cooked in hot salt. The result: a juicy and delicious dish that provides aomple nourishment for the body.

    Favorite Dish: RM16 per bird, wrapped in paper and packed in a box.
