    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.

    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.

    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

    THERE is a charming little place in Bandar Baru Medan Ipoh that serves the most unique combination of Western and Mediterranean food in town.

    Step into Kafe Paprika and enter a heady world of fine dining, culinary delights and pleasing sights and sounds.

    With its family feel and warm friendly service, it is one good place to share with friends and loved ones.

    Run by Alan and Nurina Harvey, the outlet specialises in Mediterranean and European cuisine.

    Kafe Paprika’s offerings range from the exotic Morrocan, Tunisian and Arabian food to the classic French, Italian and Greek dishes, all creations from Nurina’s wide expertise and experience from her travels abroad.

    Favorite Dish: Whether you tuck in the tender, Juicy Lamb Shank or the Chicken Florentine baked in creamy French sauce, the Duo Fish in mustard and lemon sauce, the Mediterranean Chicken, or the Young Rabbit in creamy mustard sauce, you will have a gastronomic experience which will have you coming back for more.

    For dessert, try the Bananoffee Toffee, a scrumptious concoction of banana, biscuits, toffee and cream with a toffee syrup topping that is not too sweet, just enough cream and the finest banana taste, combined in one sweet serving.

    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.

    Foo San: Don't miss this restaurant of Dim Sum

    by l_joo Updated May 6, 2004
    Joo in Foo San

    City centre looks like 70’s Kuala Lumpur. The main objective and mission to visit Ipoh for me is to stop over and eat the famous Taugeh Chicken Rice and if I arrive early in the morning, I will go to the Dim Sum restaurant, Foo San (photo).

    Weng Kee Seafood Restaurant: Seafood...

    by 4Czens Written Sep 11, 2002

    It's air-conditioned, so you can eat comfortably. If you notice, there are a few recommendations here that are from Ipoh Garden. That's because I stay here when in Ipoh.

    Favorite Dish: Lai Yau Fish (usually this style is used for prawns, but here they make the fish this way too).

    Sorry the translation is not available 'cos I'm not good with food terms... Does "fried butter fish with curry leaves" help?

    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.
