Eating is easily the best activity to do in Ipoh. Bean sprout chicken rice, 'kai see hor fun', egg tarts, white coffee, hakka mee, curry mee, ABC, caramel custard, yong tau fu and the list goes on. If you are visiting Ipoh for a 'makan trip' soon, I hope you are going with an empty stomach. Here's a list of 20 must-try food, coffee shops and restaurants to get you started.
As someone who has been staying in Kepong for most of my working life, it is my duty to introduce you, in my opinion, some of the best Kepong food stalls and restaurants to eat at.
Mitasu Japanese restaurant is serving a la carte buffet, something buffet chasers nowadays look for because it gives an impression that the dishes are prepared upon order. Secondly, the price is affordable @ RM59.90++, not cheap but not too expensive too. And lastly, the restaurant does not impose any time limit so customers are allowed to stay on and eat until they are closed.
Restoran Boston Baru in Klang is notorious for its long wait time. I have heard stories where customers have waited 3 hours just to get their food served. Last weekend, I finally said 'screw it' and came here as early as 4.45pm to be one of the earliest customers. But what do you know, I still ended up being the second in line.
