    chicken rice / popiah / ice kacang: Food in Ipoh

    by SUN_69 Written Oct 15, 2009
    Popiah at Jln Raja Musa Aziz/Jln Mustapha junction
    2 more images

    The much talked about chicken rice in Ipoh and Penang was a disappointment. The chicken was dry and bland. The rice was of cheap grade and wasn't fragrance. Ipoh Bean Sprouts was good though.

    The only good food we came across in Ipoh was a Popiah stall run by a middle aged lady in a coffee shop at the junction of Jalan Raja Musa Aziz and Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri. It was best popiah I’ve taken.....after my mum's popiah.

    The Ice Kachang / soya bean stall at at Jln Yau Tet Shin/Jln Raja Musa Aziz was better than Kei Foong's at Jln Dato Tawii Azar and Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri.

    Vanggey Restaurant: Indian Muslim Curry Rice

    by Chuckaziz Written Aug 17, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Branch @ Greentown, Ipoh
    1 more image

    The original outlet has been operating since 1955 at Yong Suan Coffee shop along Jalan Yang Kalsom, Ipoh. Presently there is a branch of this famous restaurant in Greentown Ipoh with more tables and ample parking space. "Vanggey" is an Indian word meaning "come" and the famous call by the assistants to lure customers into the restaurant has earned them the name ever since.

    Favorite Dish: Have your plate of rice mixed with the restaurant's specialty spicy rose chicken drumstick, mutton rendang, slices of cucumber and coconut sambal. If you want your plate of rice to be devilishly spicy ask for more mixed gravies to be poured directly on top of the rice.

    Tasik Raban Restaurant: Traditional Malay Food

    by Chuckaziz Written Aug 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Tasik Raban Restaurant, Ipoh, Perak

    This is a no-frill restaurant with a simple setup. But looking at the larger than normal lunch time crowd will by itself be a "pull factor" for people to stop by and sample the food.

    The restaurant serves authentic traditional Perak Malay food. There are more than 50 dishes to choose from such as freshwater fish curry, masak lemak labu or pumpkin in coconut milk, various types of chili pastes or sambal, and salads.

    Favorite Dish: Gulai Ikan Masak Tempoyak (Durian flavoured fish curry) and Ikan Bakar (Grilled Fish).

    Kedai Kopi Thean Chun: Kedai Kopi Thean Chun

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    thean chun coffeeshop

    The coffeshop have a whole range of stalls selling all types of hawker food... The shop is always crowded but turnover is also high, so getting a table is not a problem, after a short wait... It is opened daily from 7am to 4pm....

    Favorite Dish: The favourite here is the har (prawn) mee, reputed to be the best in town... the chee cheong fun is also a must try... although it is also known for its satay, the standard has dropped a bit as the old operator has retired and the stall is now managed by new tenant... the egg custard is also popular and sold off if you are a bit late...

    On our last visit to Thean Chun in October 2008, the standard of har mee has dropped dramatically with very watery soup... Will not dine there again for the har mee...

    The restaurant just moved to new premises, a corner double storey building... It is non air-conditioned but is cool enough...

    Favorite Dish: Chemor is famous for its "sang yee" fish... The speciality is hence "sang yee" in two preparation... ie fish fillet fried with spring onion with the head and bones as a kind of peppery soup... Both are delicious... The roast pork fried with sping onion is also good here... You should also try its homemade braised tofu with seafood...

    Tian Jun Restaurant: Custard & Pork Satay

    Pork & chicken satay
    3 more images

    Once you are seated, the satay vendor will put a plate of satay in front of you. Eat it if you like it, then pay later according to the number of sticks that you have eaten. It's enticing to have the food in front of you. How can you resist it ? Trust me, you can go ahead to try one of two sticks. There is also pork innards satay.

    The sauce for cuttlefish spinach tastes a little bit different from the usual as it tastes a bit curry-flavoured.

    The caramel custard is smooth and not too sweet. It comes with a cup of cold water.

    Favorite Dish: Caramel custard (RM2), pork satay, cuttlefish spinach, white coffee, etc.

    Kopitiam: "Coffee Shop" style food in shopping mall

    by SLLiew Written Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the shopping mall version of the typical coffee shop style food and coffee served. With higher hygiene standard, air condition environment but taste still fairly maintained and prices inflated, it is a convenient ternative to meet up with friends for a cup of Ipoh coffee or your favorite nasi lemak or curry mee.

    The marble tables and porcelain coffee cups give the old world coffee shop (kopitiam) experience.

    Foh San Restaurant: Famous Ipoh Dim Sum

    by SLLiew Written Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you can get to Ipoh new town in the early morning, head for Foh San restaurant for dim sum.

    It is another Ipoh institution as one of the earliest place to serve dim sum in Malaysia. The first chefs apparently went to Hong Kong to learn how to make dim sum.

    Foh San is also famous for her mooncakes during the Malaysian Chinese mid-autumn festival. Foh San mooncakes are sold throughout Malaysia during this period. But if you are here during that time, why not buy a fresh box or two home.
