    Taiping Food Court - Below Fajar Hypermarket: Taiping most popular food court

    by SLLiew Written Apr 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once the old bus station, this ground floor below Fajar Hypermarket Kamunting has numerous hawker food stalls with a separate halal food (for Muslim) section.

    What you should do is take a big walk around and look at all the stalls. Be careful, some times the floor can be wet and slippery.

    If you are ensure, look at what most locals are eating and you know what is popular and decently great.

    I have taken the chicken rice and curry mee there - not bad. You will be spoiled for choice.

    Kedai Kopi & Tumpangan "Peace": Colonial majestic coffee shop

    by SLLiew Written Apr 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An impressive colonial prewar town building which serves as a coffee shop with stalls selling local Taiping food on the ground floor as well as providing accommodating on upper floor.

    Used to be one of my favorite eating places. Location is next to Taiping major shopping supermarket "The Store" and so after a quick snack under the ceiling fans of the coffee shop, can cool down further in the full air con "The Store".

    The food court is the result of moving most of the street hawkers off the streets and centralise them... A section of the food court is segregated for muslim food... There are many stalls thats sells all kinds of Chinese hawker food... ranging from seafood to noodles soups...

    Favorite Dish: The most famous chee cheong fun is located at stall C-37... It is the best in the town... its yam cake is also mouth watering and delicious...

    noted for it popiah...

    This is just a noirmal coffee shop with 4 or 5 food stalls selling hawker food such as noodle soup, fried kway teow, popiah and chicken rice...

    Favorite Dish: The noted Taiping popiah is sold here... As Taiping is also famous for its popiah, beside chee cheong fun, we were unfortunate not to try this stall, which is deeded to be the best in the town... as we were so full after tasting some of the local stalls...

    the place to eat popiah in taiping

    this is an old shop smack right in the middle of town.. the name means peace coffee shop and guest house.. the shop was built during the colonial times and have refurbished.. there's a guest house upstairs.. anyway, everything here is still from the olden days, giving it some added charm..

    Street Vendors: Taiping Delights-Deep Fried/Grilled Local Tofu

    by chocolatecake Updated Dec 9, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main market is the heart of the street vendors for vegetables, fruits and local delights. It is always packed with hundred of people in the morning. The locals like to gather together at the Food Court on the 1st floor after the shopping to have breakfast and chatting with friends before they are heading back home. There is one and only street vendor for deep fried local tofu in the market. RM0.70 per piece.

    Favorite Dish: The fresh local tofu (bean curd) is deep fried then stuffed with fresh cucumber and bean sprout, eat with tailor made sweet chili sauce, they are DELICIOUS! A friend from LA flied all the way from LA to KL to eat grilled tofu with me after her last visit 3 years ago. She told me a friend brought her to eat grilled tofu in KL a day before she left. When she was on board, her mind was filled with her favorite grilled tofu!!!

    Ka Ka Restaurant: Kuay Teow Soup - the best!!!

    by aberacadabra Written Feb 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mention Taiping and Kuay Teow (Hor Fun) soup springs to mind. Taiping's Kuay Teow soup is also synonymous with Ka Ka Restaurant, located on the busy Kota Road. Because Taiping's water is hard like that in Ipoh - due to being surrounded by karst/limestone hills, it has produced some of the best soup based food, beancurd and not to forget beansprouts.

    Do note that you have to be there the latest is before 12noon, because they sell out VERY quickly.

    Favorite Dish: Kuay Teow soup (Kuay Teow) and Tau Foo Fa (Bean curd dessert). The white coffee is also very good and better than the "franchised" stuff found everywhere nowadays.

    The Restaurant

    If you like those fresh short, stubby and succulent type of bean sprout (Ngar Choi), Central and Northern Perak is the place to be.
    This restaurant serves Ipoh style Ngar Choi Gai (Bean sprout and chicken) with rice noodle in soup or dry style. Their white coffee is also excellent. If you're into chicken feet, their braised checken feet is great too.

    Stall C37 Pusat Selera: The Unforgettable Chee Chong Fun!

    by leeks5229 Written Mar 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This stall sells yam cake, chee cheong fun, barley water, etc. It is not ambience of the stall that is important but the affordable yet tasty food items it provides. What makes this place special? My cousins, from Singapore who used lived in Taiping when they were much younger, would never Taiping without first eating at this stall.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish as well that of my cousins is chee cheong fun which is soft and smooth. Normally it would come with chili sauce and brown sweet sauce. The taste would be further enhanced if it goes with prickled green chilli.

    the place for home cooked dim sum

    this is another old joint in town.. we read about it somewhere.. we came here on a weekday morning.. lots of elderly people hang out here to have their morning tea over newspapers and have a chat.. interesting atmosphere.. we were the youngest there!!

    Favorite Dish: they serve very few dishes here compared to most dim sum places in the country.. and the taste is different.. very home cook food taste, if there's anything like that.. anyway, this is something different.. worth a try.. i particularly like their buns.. char siew pau.. have a try! :)

    This is a typical Hainanese coffee shop and eatery... It was recommended by one of the Taiping golfers that we met at the Taiping Golf & Country Club... Thomas Ng told us that it has the best coffee in town... Besides coffee, there are also typical Hainanese food available in this eatery...

    Favorite Dish: The shop is noted for its Hainanese cusine... The chicken chop is good... They serve also fried noodles... As for the coffee, there is nothing to shout about... it is just normal coffee as you can drink anywhere in the country...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taiping is very famous with their local delights-street vendors food in the Larut Matang food court in the morning and in the afternoon; main market in the morning and Durian Square in the evening, there are always packed with the food lovers from all over in Malaysia at all times of the year. Some of the local food which you can't get in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Ipoh etc etc. They are purely local delights from the local people from generation to generation.

    Favorite Dish: One of the local delights is deep fried rice cakes. A big piece of cake is made of rice, then steamed. The steamed cake is then sliced into small pieces and deep fry. Some street vendors sell RM0.50 per piece but some sell 3 pieces at RM1.00 as shown in the picture. They taste delicious with the tailor made sauce!

    Street Vendors: Taiping Delights-Curry Mee (Noodles)

    by chocolatecake Updated Dec 12, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The vendor is on the 1st floor in the market.

    Favorite Dish: Curry Mee is the egg noodles with the hot and spicy coconut milk curry, garnished with tofu, prawns, bean sprouts and spring onion. There are many street vendors sell Curry Mee, but the curry soup is different from stall to stall. The curry soup from this vendor is very thick with coconut and really hot and spicy, it is the best I have had so far in Taiping. If you find egg noodles is too filling, you can ask for Mee Hoon (rice noodles), it costs the same RM2.50-RM3.00. It is very popular in M'sia, Singapore and Indonesia.
