Argh! Even if you stay in Ipoh 3D2N keep stuffing your stomach with food, you still cant finish them D:
1. Dim Sum@Ming Court Restaurant
Tell you what, there is this Ming Gok Restaurant which is just opposite Fu Shan Restaurant, whereby both also selling dim sum. And i never been to FuShan because according to my Ipoh friends, Ming Gok serves the same as Fu Shan but Fu Shan is much more expensive.
2. Ipoh Bean Sprout Chicken@Restaurant Lou Wong Tauge Ayam Kuetiau
Literally speaking, bean sprout chicken is basically mixing bean sprout with chicken. People usually eat this dish with hofan(kuey teow) or rice. Their bean sprouts ARE SUPER CUTE! Imagining carrot scale down to bean sprout size! FAT AND CHUBBY. AND JUICY OH MY GOSH! Well its my first time seeing this kind of bean sprout. I find it so-so, but because this bean sprout is super juicy, i will rate this 7.5 out of 10.
This the tourist spot place, where i dined here as well. I couldn’t know other local places sorry TT
3. Ipoh Salted Chicken@Aun Kheng Lim Salted Chicken
Haha i super like strong aroma or taste food. And this. AWW YOU GOT TO TASTE THIS IF YOU WERE ME! There is two types of salted chicken: Roasted and plain. Personally i prefer roasted because the skin wont look so disgusting if you tear of the paper-like wrapper haha. But the taste is almost the same lah. The shop is very easy to recognize: Red banner, is like having a wedding like that hehe.
4. Tong Sui@Tong Sui Ngai
This is a street whereby people purposely come to eat tong sui, sweet dessert like ABC, ice kacang those kind of tong sui. The one with ice cream not bad. Zhap guo(mixed fruit) is my favorite haha.
Address: Jalan Sultan Ekram, Taman Jubilee, 30300 Ipoh, Perak
5. White Coffee@Nam Heong Coffee Shop
You might ask, what so special about the white coffee in ipoh? haha YOU GOT TO TRY IT. I personally think that the cold one without ice cubes is far more, wow stronger aroma. Haha there is other places serve white coffee as well in old town, i choose this because it also serves THE EGG TART!
6. Ipoh Ho fun@Thean Chun
Just so you know their kuey teow texture is so different than other states’. Its smooth texture make you so want them even after you are full! Basically a lot of thing i eat is in this restaurant hahahhahaa.
7. Yong Tau Foo@Pasir Pinji Big Tree Foot
Super a lot of people here. You really can suffocate in here D: But is worth it cause it got all you ever wanted to eat. What should i choose? I say meeeaaaty stuffing!! Then after that you choose your type of noodle(ho fan and lou shu fan are my choices everytime), then you choose whether you want it to be dry noodle, curry, laksa, or plain soup. I personally like their curry!
8. Chinese Pork Satay@Thean Chun
Haha not like malay satays. Its my first time eating it as well! And it tastes so PORKY! Pork meat, pork intestine, pork organ everything about pork! Its not raw dont worry, they grilled it in chinese way. Strictly non-halal.
9. Egg tart@Nam Heong Coffee Shop
Imagining smoking hot egg tart fresh from the oven and after that people will fight for the egg tarts? Err is here.
10. Heong Beng@Gunung Rapat
This is basically snacks or biscuits, and its name literally means fragrance biscuits(heheh direct translation). Famous thing about this biscuits, is THE FILLING. Oh the filling is sweet, not to mention the charcoal fired outer layer of biscuits of heong beng. There are pretty packages of it whereby last longer but more expensive, and those put in red packages and simply tied with a rubber band packaging. I opt for the latter one because it doesnt have much more chemical inside hahahaha.

11. Tau Fu Fah@Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fah
Its by the side with a small little shop. But when you see there is a lot of car stop by, thats mean they are having a drive through. Yea i didnt really went in because i had a drive through as well. And tau fu fah with black sugar(malacca sugar) is sweeter! And eat it while its still hot because you really wont believe how smooth and sweet it is!
12. Custard pudding@Thean Chun
Super duper nice looking dessert. Its like coconut pudding, but not cold, smoother. More softer than jelly. OH MY GOSH! AND IT IS SWEEEEEEEEEET!
13. Pork Porridge@Pasir Pinji Bug Tree Foot
This is my first ever pork porridge where by they mixed all sorts of fried or non fried pork offal into it. Hehe too bad if you dont eat offal because it taste REALLY GOOD. Anyway heard from people this restaurant got better pork porridge. Cant comment much until i get there 😀

14. Dragonfruit Drink@Pasir Pinji Big Tree Foot
I am not sure what is the price for this. But last two years i ordered it is RM5. Hope is still that price then. Oh even if is RM5, it is super big glass! With the seeds and fruit and tempting color of the dragon fruit inside the glass. So refreshing. I love the red bean drink as well.
15. Rojak@Thean Chun
Its so different from my place! They have crispy keropok, sweet sauce, and vege for their rojak. And sotong rojak some more. And, ok i not so fancy it but it trigger my taste buds!

This food is a plate of cuttle fish with kangkung or water convolvulus vegetable and sweet and spicy sauce on top of it.
