    Restaurant Rasa Sayang: Ipoh Chicken Rice

    by SLLiew Written Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another established restaurant in Ipoh new town, near to Lou Wong is this steamed chicken, bean sprout and rice.

    So if you are more of the Hainanese chicke rice type than noodles, this is a popular family eating place of sharing a plate of chicken with individual rice plates.

    Another famous Ipoh Chicken institution

    by SLLiew Written Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also located at Ipoh new town, this has become a very popular steamed whole chicken dish.

    With the popularity, there are no longer seating place to eat the chicken and it is a take-away or to go outlet.

    Best to eat when the chicken is still hot. Delicious but still just chicken.

    Coffee Shop opposite Kamdar Supermarket: Ipoh Well known "Haw Hee" Noodles

    by SLLiew Written Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a Ipoh signature koay teow soup of rice flat noodles with fish balls.

    It will not be too far stretch to say that most Ipoh Chinese sons and daughters when coming home from overseas or outstation will make it a point to eat it.

    I believe it is an acquired taste. Anyway it is a delicious bowl of noodles but given one choice I will opt first for Ipoh chicken bean sprout noodles.

    Ong Kee Restauarant: Another famous Chicken Bean Sprout Noodles

    by SLLiew Updated Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some local Ipoh residents prefer Ong Kee to the bigger Lou Wong.

    Ong Kee is smaller and located just opposite corner of Lou Wong.

    I have tried both but don't ask which one taste better. If you want to avoid the crowd at Lou Wong, you can opt for Ong Kee.

    Same menu of steam chicken with bean sprout (taugeh) and meatballs and rice flat noodles in soup (koay teow or kuetiau).

    Note: Also open during dinner time.

    Lou Wong Tauge Ayam KueTiau: Famous Ipoh Chicken Beansprout Noodles

    by SLLiew Written Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many Malaysian and Singaporean tourists coming to Ipoh will make it a point to have dinner at this famous institution in Ipoh.

    It is located at middle of town and can be hard to find with the many one-way street of Ipoh. So do not hesitate to ask any local Ipoh resident where "Lou Wong" and you will find it for sure.

    Another thing is that it is only open at night. Popular of course, the steamed chicken, the bean sprout and the meatballs with rice flat noodles soup (kue tiau) or (koay teow).

    Restoran Tasik Raban: Malay restaurant fantastic for lunch

    by mdakhirs Updated Jan 28, 2008

    fantastic selection of selera kampung dishes - ulam2, grilled fish -- typical and wide selection of malay food. Was informed that also got fresh water fish but when i went there the lunch hour was almost over so the grilled fish was almost finished but hey other dishes also got me fumbling for the nasi

    looking at the name the restaurant may have some connection to the one sitting by the lake in Grik, but i dont know..

    Anyway good place if you hunkering for unusual ulam and dishes cant be found in typical malay food joint. The price was also reasonable

    Favorite Dish: Ulam and sambal

    the blue building housing fms...

    The FMS stands for "Federated Malay States". Founded by a Hainanese settler, it was opened in 1906 and just celebrated 100 years of its existence... Making it the oldest restuarant in Ipoh and (maybe) Malaysia... In the good old days, it is frequented by European miners and planters....

    Favorite Dish: Lunch and dinner is now served on the first floor... The food is mainly Chinese... The ground floor still function as a pub and is a favourite hangout for lawyers and high society looking for a pint and to unwind...

    Nam Chau Restaurant: Of Curry Noodles & White Coffee

    by yipsufen Updated Feb 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Curry Noodles & Glass Noodles

    Inside the restaurant, there's many water mist sprinkler ahead on the ceiling. Perhaps this is to cool down your body heatiness while eating their curry noodles ! They also have a proud display of photos of the city's early days.

    You can order the curry noodles in soup or dried form, both are yummy. There is no cockles added but with chicken shreds instead. As such, it doesn't taste like the usual curry noodles in Malaysia. Spicyness can be adjusted according to individual taste.

    Another dish is the glass noodles with fish balls or commonly called by the locals as "Broken Bowl". It is served with ingredients like fish balls and fish cake slices. The glass noodles are springy but the soup is sprinkled with excessive pepper powder.

    Another crowd-puller here is the Ipoh white coffee. I was seated near to their kitchen and have a chance to peep at their preparation of coffee. To my surprise, coffee powder and condensed milk are electronically weighed for precision. Maybe this is their secret formula for the best brew !

    Business Hours: 8am to 4pm, closed on Saturdays.

    Favorite Dish: Some of their famous dishes are:-
    White Coffee RM1.10
    Curry Noodles RM3.20
    Glass noodles soup RM3.20
    Chicken Noodle Soup RM3.20
