8 meals a day during Day 2 did not hold us back from continuing our Ipoh gastronomic adventure as we’ve already gave in our waistline. Fret not during an eating trip. These what what we all planned to do!
3 Breakfasts in a row!
#1 Restoran Paris – Famous Hakka Noodles and Liew
Used to operate their business at the opposite coffee shop named Yin Yau Kui Restaurant, the Famous Hakka Noodles have shifted to this Paris cafe. It was my first time having hakka noodles with tauge (bean sprouts) in it. Oh, how could you miss out tauge when you’re in Ipoh! The yeung liew to go with it were good too, but you won’t get a chance to choose in particular which liew you wanted. Just inform them the number of servings, and they’ll pick for you.
Located on Jalan Sultan Iskandar nearby the Ipoh new town police station. Right after the traffic light (on your left) as you head towards old town.
#2 Nam Chau Curry Mee
My dad recommended me to check out one of the curry mee in Ipoh. ‘Neh, near the balai polis one’ But I forgot what’s the restaurant’s name. However, it was closed during our visit. We then proceeded to Nam Chau. The curry noodles here somehow tasted differently from KL’s version of dry curry mee. It tasted sourish, churning out an appetizing sensation.
54, Jalan Bandar Timah, 30000 Ipoh.
#3 Sun Yun Loong Ipoh White Coffee
This is located just opposite Nam Heong Coffee House. Once again, it’s quite tough to a seat. I guess not only Ipoh folks, but people from other states too were gathered in Ipoh somehow. lol.
Chris and I preferred the Ipoh White Coffee from Nam Heong better although the ones served here were also some good stuffs. You could also opt to add some grass jelly in your coffee for a difference!
#4 Gua Kek Look Tong
Kek Lok Tong is the most recent Ipoh cave temples and it owns quite a spectacular view. The temple is set in a huge cave in the limestone outcrops behind Gunung Rapat with works of art, statues of Buddha in various forms among the natural rock formations. We spend quite sometime there amusing ourselves with bubbles blowing and pictures sessions!
Many thanks to Citygal’s parents for the marvellous meal at Lung Seng seafood restaurant, we traveled to Tualang from Ipoh for a seafood meal on our way back to KL. Oh, Fresh Water Prawns catered differently via 3 types of cooking method was the perfect indulgence.
Steamed Prawns with Chinese Wine & Egg White
I love this most, it brought out the freshness of the prawns. Matched with eggs of utter smoothness!
Crispy Oat Prawns
Very fragrant and crispy, these darlings were finger licking good too.
“Jui Ha” Simmering Drunken Prawns
I’m hot! I mean after consuming these freshies and gulping down some alcoholic soup.
Soft Shell Crabs – very crispy and piping hot. Dunk these crabs into the chili sauce for yummier taste.
Seafood Sang Mee
Some tasty noodles to go with our seafood main characters. The gravy was good.
Fried Rice were OK as I am already too full to feed myself with anymore of it.
Stir-fry Paku with Sambal Belacan
Crunchy paku vege and kicking sambal with spiciness. A hit!
