Next time you're in Ipoh looking for a place to chill or catch up with friends, be sure to swing by Rooftop Restaurant & Bar. It has been around for about 2 years and it is also currently one of the top rated restaurants in Ipoh. The consistently great reviews you see on their Facebook page says it all.
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.
Mixed Fruits Ice Kacang ä»€æžœå†° is one of the things that's uniquely Ipoh. If you have one and only one shot at this dessert in Ipoh, I highly recommend Fei Ma's stall in Kampung Simee. It's quite different compared to those sold by the stalls at the town's famous 'tong sui kai'.
I have probably driven past Tanjung Malim a few tens of times, but it was only last weekend that I decided to make a quick stopover to check out the town for some grub. Yik Mun is undoubtedly the most popular eatery in town - famous for their homemade steamed buns, coffee and Chinese-Muslim fare.
