Ipoh Food Hunt (Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun, Best White Coffee & Ipoh Chicken Rice)

by Taufulou

Sometimes, when you want to hunt for food, every state also got their own popular food. As for last round long weekend holiday, some friend brought me to his hometown for Ipoh Food Hunt to eat some great food which is nearby Ipoh called Pusing (click here). After that, we head back to Ipoh town to hit on some great food recommended by them.

ipoh (1)

There is this one particular little stall hidden under this huge tree. Some called it Under the tree Chee Cheong Fun. Its so famous that in a day he do only a few hours business. Not because he is lansi, just that alot people hunt for his food.

ipoh (2)

This uncle a humble and cheerful guy had been running this little stall for more than 10 years and it had gain popularity among the locals.

ipoh (3)

One of the different style compare to Penang is, he have created his own special sauce.

ipoh (4)

And there are 2 types of chee cheong fun, one which is plain and one which is with mince meat if I am not mistaken.

ipoh (5)

So its pair up with another family run little coffee shop and both of them make the whole place packed up within minutes.

ipoh (7)

This is what is so different from Penang style as Penang we use ‘heh koh’ (prawn paste).

ipoh (8)

But in Ipoh, this uncle had created his own special gravy that shower upon the chee chong fun and according to my friend the gravy is made of pork bones and other great ingredients that make it so rich and sweet in taste. Add on with spicy green chili, brown sauce and some chili sauce just makes it perfect for afternoon tea time. RM2.50 per plate

Some people like my friend will need to have 2 plates at least to satisfy their crave. I would say, if you have not given it a try, it is certainly worth to try, consider this is one of the most famous Chee Cheong Fun in Ipoh.

Remark: you might like it or don like it. More like a love – hate relationship.

Operating hours: 2.30pm till finish (means while stock last)

ipoh (11)

Also I notice alot people order White Coffee here, find out that its a bit strong, foamy on the top and just nice to go for afternoon tea. RM2 if I am not mistaken.

Location:
Lahat Lane,
Ipoh, Perak

Next is we have to go for what Ipoh is famous for where how white coffee started. Of course I was introduce by one of the best white coffee in Ipoh is located inside this coffee shop, Kedai Kopi Sun Yuan Foong.

ipoh (10)

A normal coffee shop that is packed with many people that usually comes here for breakfast, besides that, the Chee Cheong Fun I mention above, he will operate in this kopitiam in the morning from 8.30am till finish. (where usually finish around 11am)

ipoh (12)

Usually my friend will come here for breakfast and this coffee shop was recommended by 2 of my Ipoh friend already. Guess that it should be good!

ipoh (13)

This is the super star of all White Coffee, as it is in robust coffee that many of our locals will love, a bit thick in texture and for many coffee lovers, you will fall in love with this white coffee. I certainly would love to have 2 glass of this, but surely will hang over later as in yawn and fall asleep. – Recommneded!!!!!

ipoh (14)

This is what my friend will have for breakfast, hot white coffee and with this half boil egg with toast. .

ipoh (15)

Soft break like using the (bakery head brand) where you can find in pasar malam, toast to perfection and topple with this 2 half boil egg.

Besides all those white coffee, Ipoh also famous for its Ipoh Chicken Rice, as this is my very first shop I have visited when I first came to Ipoh is Restaurant Onn Kee. One of the reason last time my friend introduce me this shop was because many celebrities came by to this outlet to eat and that’s how I ended up here.

This is not only the restaurant avail as in this stretch of street there are 3 giant players in the area and this restaurant is one of it. Every one prefer different outlet and it really depends on your taste.

ipoh (17)

The crowd pour in non stop and the chef just non stop chopping on the chicken.

ipoh (18)

This is how busy the shop can be during long weekend. All shops are super crowded.

ipoh (19)

You will never want to miss the bean sprout in Ipoh as they are grown differently. According to my friend they are grown by using mineral water, therefore the bean spout in Ipoh is fat and juicy.

ipoh (20)

This is the Ipoh White Chicken (cantonese – Ipoh Nga Choi Kai).

ipoh (21)

Homemade pork and fish balls.

ipoh (22)

Silky smooth koay teow .. . .

Among 3 restaurant available in the area, this shop is my last choice, as the chicken texture and koay teow I do not really like it, but my friend prefer this shop.

Well, it depends on your individual taste as I prefer the one next to this shop. After your Chicken Rice, please do not miss one of the best Soya Bean (Funny Mountain Soya Bean – click here) which is just on the next street which is about 3 minutes walk. Total Damage was around RM 40 if I am not mistaken for a pax of 4

Food Rating 5/10, i find it so so only . .nothing to boast about~

Hi Bok,

I came across your blog as I search for nice food in Ipoh and found this link. Therefore, I would like to request for a better, more detailed location for the Chee Cheong Fun that you had been, as not many information could be found from the internet.

Looking forward to receiving your prompt reply. Thank you! 🙂

P/S: I tried to send you an email but failed. :
