The city also has an abundance of jungle topepd hills making it well known as the “Hill City”. In the early days Kinta Valley tin rush brought an influx of Chinese immigrants to Ipoh. Many made fortunes and built opulent town houses. You can admire these houses in the old town area, where the Indians are having a ‘Little India ‘of their own.The Chinese have created what is now, one of the Malaysia’s best-preserved Chinatowns, the Old Town. And, still the Ipoh coffee in Old Town is the best so far. Save praise for that coffee. (Info from http://www.heritage.com.my/ipoh/)
Pride of Ipohan – White Coffee..Sun Yuen Loong and Sun Yuen Foong’s one are more to the bitterly and sourly side..Nam Heong’s one are more to the milkier and sweeter side..It depends on your taste actually..I prefer Nam Heong’s one myself but patrons would opt for Sun Yuen Loong or Sun Yuen Foong because of the varieties of food stalls..
Raddish Cake and Popiah..Theres assortments of kueh caters to everyone at the lil stall infront..(RM1.20)
Indian style of Fried noodles in typical Malaysian fashion – with a dash of spice, a dose of hospitality and plenty of lip-smacking taste! (RM 2.50)
Toast with Swipes of Kaya and Butter..They sliced the bread into half, making it thinner and crunchier..None of those that I tried in KL beat this.. (RM0.70)
He seems happy with some little promo of his dad’s stalls..His sheepish smile cheer me up too..
Everyone is amazed by the LOW price and HIGH quality food in Ipoh..By the way, Ipoh people wouldn’t waste their money on COSTLY and LOUSY food..Call them picky or thrifty but it’s just our culture..
