Blessed with high quality water from the surrounding mountains, the soya beancurd turns out to be one of the best that I’ve ever eaten. Costing just RM 3 for a bowl, this is able to bring so much joy (and fun) for the silky smooth and softness-alike-to-clouds texture. With that, this concludes my food adventures in Ipoh and overall this place is so underrated as most people would prefer to head over to the food mecca of Penang but I highly recommend you to make a pitstop here, if possible, for some serious street food.

One of the three legendary white coffee brands in Ipoh but this actually fared quite badly. Though the place was packed with locals and foreigners, I feel that this cup of white coffee ($1.90) cannot hold a candle to their rival, Sin Yoon Loong, who is housed directly opposite the road. What Nam Heong is lacking is the “coffee-ness” and aroma, it almost felt like this cup came out from a 3 in 1 sachet.

To go along with the yong tau foo, there are two noodles that I will recommend which is either the Assam laksa or the dry tossed curry noodles. And yes, I had this for breakfast because I am a champion.

You certainly can here at this stall in the Dai Shu Geok Big Tree Foot food court. Not the best that I’ve ever tasted but the saving grace is that you can have this in the morning more than makes up for it. The crispy skin was good but the overall meat was lacking in flavour.

The large portion costs RM 15, and it comes a generous portion of rice, braised chicken, Chinese sausage and hidden bits of salted fish in the claypot. What’s impressive is that they cook everything upon order over charcoal fire so the aroma and flavour is unlike anywhere else. Just like most claypot, mix them well and towards the end, enjoy the crispy bits.

There are numerous “famous” brands and tourists usually will flock to the ones that are highly recommended on the internet. However, to me, the best way to suss out the better ones are to talk to the locals and specifically the drivers, who will tell you more than what you already know. During this short trip, I had this dish twice from two different places that are recommended by two different drivers, and both, though slight different, are equally good on its own rights. For this visit, I was at Restoran Tauge Ayam Ong Kee, opposite from the bigger boys of bean sprouts chicken, but I don’t think they will lose out in the flavour department. Costing RM 16 for a single pax set, it comes with one of the most succulent and tender steamed kampung chickens, a bowl of the slurp worthy kway teow and a plate of that magical bean sprouts. This is a place that you have to try it at least once if you are a making a pit stop in Ipoh.

A 6oz cup costing just RM 10 might be taken for granted but the hard work behind crafting a good cup goes beyond just the cost. Here at Jln Theatre Coffee, the name paying homage to the street that the cafe’s located on, they roast their own beans and the main core business is their coffee. Thinking of where to escape the heat in the middays, this is the perfect place for a good cuppa of joe in an air-conditioned location.

I am sure how much of these are facts from fiction, but I have to admit that their soya beancurd is really one notch above the rest. Located in the popular Concubine Lane, this soya beancurd is of the Teochew style and at RM 2.40, it’s a bowl of warm happiness despite the scorching heat outside. What’s special about this bowl is that it’s made up of three layers of soya beancurd, ginger and brown sugar. The recommended way of eating this is to get a bit of each for a mixture of texture and flavours that will hit your palate from the silky smooth beancurd, to the slight spiciness from the ginger and sweetness of the syrup. Very unique and something that I’ve never had before.

We got both the German Chocolate Flourless Cake with Gelato (RM 12) and Burnt Cheese Cake (RM 12) to share. Both were decent, though not fall off the chair awesome but by far a higher standard than most mediocre ones.

One of them happens to be Plan B, which looks very similar to our own P.S. Cafe in terms of the decor and interior. However, besides the beautiful outlook, the food seems rather mediocre. We had the 2.0 Big Breakfast (RM 28) that comes with a spread of avocado, sautéed shimeji mushrooms, grilled tomato, baked beans, hash brown, bagel, scrambled eggs and chicken sausage, and the American Spy (RM 20) which are crinkle cut fries that’s loaded with mac & cheese and more melted cheese. The overall flavours kinda fall flat and does not justify the price in Ipoh standards. It’s better to just stick to their local favourites on the streets and in the coffee shops.

Famed for their dim sum, this place is hustling and bustling from the moment it’s opened for operations as all walks of life from young to old gather around the table to feast on dim sum. If you come in a smaller group, you might even be ushered to a communal table, which sort of evoked a community dining spirit that’s commonly seen in dim sum restaurants across Hong Kong. We went crazy, ordering most of the plates that the staff brought to our table during their rounds. After stuffing our faces (and stomach) silly, the total bill came up to only RM 65 for the two of us, which in my opinion is absolutely value for money for the quality that we are getting.

It has been widely known that due to the mountainous region surrounding Ipoh, the locals are blessed with high quality natural water, which is attributed to their tasty bean sprouts. Restoran Cowan Street is an institution of bean sprouts chicken from the long queues and limited operating hours as it opens at 6:30pm and sells out before 10:30pm, not withstanding that they are closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays as well.

We ordered a half kampung chicken (RM 28) and the medium-sized bean sprouts (RM 8), both wiped clean in minutes. The chicken meat was ultra tender with minimal fats and the soya & sesame sauce mixture that’s hydrating the chicken gives it that umami flavour. The other highlight of the meal has got to be that uber crunchy and juicy bean sprouts that was so addictive that one plate will never be enough.
