Let's go to Ipoh in the Perak state 'cos that's my first stop for delicious and affordable food.
Ipoh is well-known for its food. So, when you're there, be sure to tuck in! Most people know of Ipoh's famous Bean-sprout chicken 'Nga Choi Kai', but there's lots more! The names of restaurants are in Chinese.
Favorite Dish: Ipoh Sar Hor Fun, Hor Hee, Beef ball noodles, fruit rojak, ice-cream float (ice-cream in your soft drink)
No Ambience but food is better and good. Try their deep steam catfish and fried onions and ginger catfish. Also available on the menu are crabs, and prawn but catfish is something not to be missed.
Favorite Dish: Deep Steam Catfish (Yow Cham Sang Yu)
Fried Onions and Ginger Catfish (Keong Choong Sang Yu)
The kinds of restaurants I eat at will probably not be listed on any Malaysia food guide list because:
1. They're not big, fancy eateries
2. They may not cater to foreign tastebuds
But, I believe that's where the local tastes are and for anyone who wants to live like the locals, they should just check it out.
One of my favourite coffee shops in Ipoh is Chang Jiang. It serves good white coffee. The aroma and fragrance is good. Most of the coffee shops in Ipoh also serve white coffee. RM1.2 a cup.
we had dinner and lunch on the street, not to many dishes to choose but very "real"
Favorite Dish: I dunno what I ate......my friend chose for us.
OIt's more comfortable eating in an air-condidtioned restaurant.
Plenty of these in shopping complexes. This is in Kinta City Shopping Complex.
There are no tables. Only limited chair. So many customer 'drive in'. meaning order while you are inside the car.
Favorite Dish: Soya bean juice plus grass jelly.
Avaiable for dinner only.
Favorite Dish: This restaurant is run by the Perak Chinese Dramatic Associations. All sort of typical chinese food is served here.
It's a chicky feeling. Well this one is not so popular but they give a friendly service.
Favorite Dish: Braised chicken with huge taugeh (bean sprout)
Hong Kong actor/actress stopover. well their pictures are pasted aroung the restaurant walls. So was it good ? Hmmm...ok I guess,
Favorite Dish: chicken and beansprout
