Recommended Restaurants in Ipoh – Editor's Pick, based on foodies' reviews
Kong Heng restaurant is my favourite visit every time I am at Ipoh. This changed one day wheny family arrived at the restaurant late at 3pm and many of the stalls were closing. The chicken rice stall owner welcome us and we ordered from him. Bad experience started when the chicken rice stall owner deliver the food and my wife questioning the price inconsistency. The chicken rice stall owner clarify the price and become agitated, started raising his voice and claimed that we unfairly accused him charging excessive. I have to calm him down! He keep on raising his voice on us for a minute. I did not choose to quarrel with him as I do not want to show bad example to my daughter. His chicken rice is okay but the very poor service and attitude toward customer make us stop visiting to Kong Heng again. Other stalls in the restaurant services are good by Malaysia standard. The chicken rice stall leave a very bad name to Kong Heng restaurant Ipoh. I do not think I am the first customer to get bad experience from him. I advise future customer not to question or argue with him in order to have peaceful meal.
Ipoh’s famous “Big Tree’s Foot” (called Tai Shu Keok in Cantonese) which located at Pasir Pinji with a friend. Basically, this place is kinda dusty and untidy as it’s located by the roadside. The hawkers erected some canopies probably due to some complaints by customers that leaves falling from above.

Most of the yong tau fu we had were decent but not really outstanding. The only item that was special enough to be memorable was the ‘sar kot’ (stuffed turnip) – mainly because it was my first time having it, and we don’t get this in KL. But then again, I get comments saying there are plenty of other places that make tastier ‘sar kot’.
A highly recommended breakfast joint, even if only for the toasts and coffee.

The white coffee used to be really excellent, probably at the hands of the proprietor when quality came first before the urgency to churn out cups after cups ala fast food style.
THE Tan brothers have been churning out two goodies Ipoh seems to be associated with – soyabean milk and curd – since the early 1950s. Product and service quality have remain unchanged. You can either stop your vehicle in front of the stall, signal a little and the workers will deliver your orders. Or walk to the stall and get your drinks after a short wait.

If you're lazy to queue in the line under the scorching sun, queue by sitting in your car and the staff of Funny Mountain will bring your orders all the way to your vehicle. Savouring smooth tau fu fah within the comforts of your car seems way too good, no?
One of the oldest, and most famous shop is Thean Chun, or fondly known as Hall Of Mirrors
Overall, it was a good breakfast. My choices would be their Caramel Custard and Chicken & Prawn Hor Fun. Definitely will drop by again for this.
