    Tour Description:

    A simple Google search will tell you that Ipoh is famed for its hawker fares. However, like any other towns/cities, there are numerous restaurants riding on fame but fall short when it comes to quality and taste. In order to experience the best of the best, you’d have to enlist an experienced local to point you in the right direction. We will do just that for you. We will begin the culinary adventure by first starting off with the legendary Ipoh White Coffee and some eggs on toast – enjoying breakfast like a local! What better way to wake up with a cup of rich, frothy white coffee with an aroma that would jolt you awake. Its slight bitter aftertaste complements the sweetness of the slightly charred toast that is served with generously smeared butter and kaya (a coconut egg jam).

    Once breakfast is out of the way, we will hit the road and head towards our next destination for some sinfully good chicken rice. Called the “Nga Choy Kai”, the Ipoh chicken rice with bean sprouts has garnered a large following, taking the Ipoh food scene by storm. Doused with sesame oil and soy sauce, each piece of chicken is tender and juicy; complemented with fat bean sprouts adding a delicious crunch with every bite. Expect a long wait if you’re there on a weekend as the place will be packed, a testament to its fame and quality.

    Forget soft serve ice cream; give the local tau fu fah a try. Our next destination boasts fantastic Chinese tofu pudding. Also known as ‘douhua’, the silky beancurd jelly is drenched in sugary syrup, giving it a wondrous texture and a unique flavour profile. A blessing especially during a hot day, you’d likely save the location on Google maps so you’d be able to find the place again.

    In order to conclude the tour on a high note, you will be taking down yet another signature dish, the local yong tau fu. Essentially, this simple Hakka Chinese dish consists of tofu stuffed with meat. However, there are more variations these days, comprising of a range of stuffed vegetables and mushrooms. Accompanied by a sweet and spicy dipping sauce, it is a perfect snack for those looking for a quick but filling meal. Lastly, enjoy a piquant bowl of curry mee or asam laksa (your choice); equipped with springy rice vermicelli with fish, chicken and prawns, you’d be able to taste a fair bit of what constitutes the local Malaysian cuisine.
