A friend from Ipoh recommended Bibi's Popiah and swears it's the best in Ipoh. There's a few options to choose from and we opted for Bibi's Signature Popiah. The aunty standing in line told me that there's always a queue and prices increased during CNY. Popiah was filled with carrots, cucumbers, french beans, fried shallots, crushed peanuts, egg and sweet sauce. Delicious! 👌👌

Located just opposite Lou Wong, Onn Kee is my go-to restaurant for nga choi gai. The steamed chicken was tender, soy sauce was nice to go with rice, though a tad bit oily.
They ran out of oily rice when we went at 5.30pm, so we had hor fun instead. The smooth, translucent hor fun in the sweet and flavoursome soup was a delight to have. I'm not a fan of bean sprouts and would normally not have them but there's just something about the dish that I can't say no to.
Total cost: RM72 for 5 pax.

Woong Kee offer variations compared to the usual plain tau fu fah, with the choice of ginger, brown sugar or chrysanthemum syrup. You may also op to have grass jelly, peanuts or soybean milk with it.
I had the taufufah with chrysanthemum syrup and grass jelly. The texture was extremely smooth and silky, even smoother than Funny Mountain's. The fragrant flora flavour from the syrup goes so well with the tau fu fah. Do give this a try if you want to try something different.

Nam Chau is popular for its wet and dry curry noodles (RM6.50). The flavour of the soup was nice with a mild coconut milk taste. The dry curry was much tastier with rich, fragrant curry smothering the noodles. There's also char siew, chicken and prawns in the dish. You can also order a side of bean sprouts (RM4) or roast pork. Besides curry noodles, they have shredded chicken noodles and the usual kaya-butter toasts and eggs.
Service is pretty slow, took about 25 min for food to arrive and drinks way later. But it's worth the wait.
