To be exact, we were in Ipoh for barely three hours minus the traveling time from KL. Don’t know how we manage to eat so much within such a short time.
I guess with lots of good food in Ipoh, it’s easy to overindulge. And a shame not to.
Here are a few places we visited on this recent trip.
Sin Eng Heong - famous for its delicious handmade kaya puff (RM0.80 each). It’s best to get there early as it tends to get crowded.
The stall at the entrance serves a variety of noodles. I like their fish ball noodles with flavorful broth.
Funny Mountain Soy Bean – drive-through soya bean curd & drink stall. They also serve cincau drink (grass jelly) & cham (mix of soybean milk & cincau)

Lim Ko Pi Cafe
Housed in a refurbished old shophouse along Hugh Low Street, Lim Ko Pi exudes a charming ambiance. The restoration and preservation of Ipoh’s heritage buildings by the Lim family is commendable. We met Mrs Lim and her lovely daughters, Peggy and Betty.
Upstairs of the shophouse is an art gallery spearheaded by Peggy. They’ve a hotel coming up in the building nearby.
We had a few drinks and didn’t try the food here . It was a pity we were already full when we stopped by Lim Ko Pi.
Delicious salted chicken for take-and-go. RM 17 per chicken.
