Pun of the day:
Ipoh is full of fun! They got hor fun, chee cheong fun, chao fun, and curry fun.
Went to Ipoh for friend’s wedding.
Early in the morning. The sky was pink =]
Haha, Ah Fook is so tall it looks like he’s sitting in front. A 3-seater car!
To Frankie and Karen.
I like Ipoh!!
There are so many pet shops around town selling cute and cheap animals! They are selling Mini Pinschers for RM350!!! So super cheap ok. Cheaper than a meal for two in Lafite.
Fairy white parrot.
Parrot in the Curry Bean!!!
Ok bad pun.
Haih, reminds me of my super movie pun.
I miss my museful days.
Second thing about Ipoh. I think it has even better food than Penang. Really one! So far everything i’ve eaten, even from some obscure hawker center was delicious! 🙂
Just one thing, their popular food spots are forever so crowded.
The famous Ipoh bean sprout chicken. So many people can die.
I supposed would have died of hunger if i waited.
Ipoh Fragrant biscuit shop.
Original Ipoh white coffee.
A cheezillion of make-you-drool pictures. 😀
I am just wondering. In Cantonese, we actually pronounce them as “Ho Hee” and “Ho fun“. Why do we have to add an R always? We never pronounce them as Horrrrrrr Fun in real life! Where’s the logic? Same goes for Charrrrrrrrr Kuey Teow. By adding an R seems like it spells nicer. Sound more angmoh-ish is it? Whoever did the translation was so stupid. And now everyone’s been spelling like this officially since cheese knows when and no body ever bothers if it makes sense. 0_o
Haha i don’t know what else to call it.
The super famous ipoh charrrrrrrrrrrrrrr kuey teow. Everyone goes to the hawker center to eat from that particular stall.
The other stall have resorted to miniskirt appeal to turn some heads (hopefully customers too) over. =P
Wei i really don’t know what to call it.
Green one! Have you seen before?
Whoa really the best ever! Melts in your mouth one!
And super yummy prawns
behind the rocks beneath the batter.
More updates coming!
Wah! Makes me wanna go Ipoh also liao! Yum Yum Yum!
Green rice I think I saw before in Brunei liao… perhaps one day you can come try Brunei’s rainbow rice – multi coloured rice.
If you were there js for the weekend, and you managed to squeeze all those sinfully tantalising food into your system and still fit in your “costumes”, i think you are………..err…………… special….hahahaha
goto bercham and try their claypot chicken rice and stew chicken feet.
Omg, your pictures make me want go to Ipoh NOW, so hungry!
Wow, looks delicious! Can’t wait to go back to Malaysia and eat all that… Anyway I think hor fun is written that way so that the “hor” won’t be pronounced “ho” as in “ho ho ho!” 😛
how do u eat so many at one go?? amazing.. makes me miss msia food..aww..
I think the “liu” thing is called “Yong Tau Foo” (at least in Singapore)
And the green nasi lemak is made by adding pandan leaves juice.
droooooooooooooooooolllsssss omg syok gile!!i wana go ipoh gorge myself silly oso.hee 😛
in 1-utama there is green nasi lemak ^^’
i am so hungry now, after looking at ur pics.
Food in Ipoh is good..
Was there for a blood donation campaign last year..
But Penang still owns the best food..
You must be a fat person on the inside cheesie 😀 lol
suddenly so hungry
damn.. u jz make me soooooo hungry now…. everything looks super delicious!
come come come to muar…try our very famous oyster omelette..pork satay..
otah otah..mee bandung..white coffee..n many many more……
Actually I diagaree on Ipoh food better then Penang, its just that the Ipoh town is smaller so the food are easier to find, in Penang you need to know where to eat and at what time cuz their hawkers open on a specific time and normally closes early if they are famous -__-lll by thw way the best satay in Ipoh not halal one oooooo if you know where to find it that is………..next time if you want I bring you go jalan jalan makan makan spree all over the peninsula lar hahahaha……………….all also Cheesielicious one, once you tasted it you will ask for more…….
But you so good lar eat so much still so slim, if for me I dunno put on how many pounds already lor……
IPOH FOOD OWNS PENANG FOOD!!!!!
I’m from Ipoh. I think you have tried almost all the delicious food in Ipoh old town. I miss Ipoh now as I haven’t gone back Ipoh since CNY. I’m a bad girl, hor?
That HOR FUN you have commented was actually Kei See Hor Fun as local Ipoh called as. HOR HEE was actually Yu Tan Fun as it contains of fish balls. You should have tried egg custard and their famous ‘chai cha’ (leng shui) in the same shop too.
Kam char fun is the most expensive char fun in Ipoh and its serving is too little for a person.
Besides the famous tourist crowded food stalls, there are many hidden good food that local Ipoh know of…hehe… I miss Ipoh white coffee now… IPoh white coffee in KL sucks…
Woah shit…all the food ler..hungry!!!
Cheesie, you can never ever never ever say that ANY food is better than Penang food. 😀 Seriously if your blog is as popular as Kenny Sia’s and you have crazy Penangnites running around here, you’ll get so much backlash for that comment. XD;; Just ask Kenny.
Oh, I am a Penangnite but a slightly less crazy one so HOW CAN U SAY IPOH FOOD BETTERRRR!!!ONEUNO111!!111ONE!!!111
he he he…
I’ve always known the “liu” as yong tau fu, too for the first one and the second one are fish balls. Those food look so delicious in those photos!! How did you manage to eat so much with so little time!!!
the errr green nasi lemak rice is cos of pandan…last time lah…now it’s all coloring xP i’m from canada and looking at ur pics make me wanna fly home to eat….
wao! 麻芝！good photos u provide, so tempting,it has been long since i last ate ma chi, its a teochew snack, a lot of ‘imitations’ , but i think this one looks real good.
your food photography is too good… its making me hungry during working hours…lol
hhmmm…. nice food… interested to know more… u know the places where u had each of those food? kekekekee
damn pro. but the shop you took photo of selling tauge chicken sucks shit. its so commercialised, the kuay teow taste like chemicals. There’s a better shop in Silibin, Ipoh where you also get to see Indians speaking fluently in Cantonese! xD

cheesie u r on Hit.FM Gotcha today…….The james’s proposal….lolz
Ipoh is definitely a nice place. A cross between your hometown and KL, plus it has lotsa great food! You’ll never die of hunger. Only will die of waiting. Haha…
Sai Hm Sai, early in the morning, make me so hungry
yo…satay tu hangus la.
Ipoh ~ The food paradise. I’ve been to Ipoh before too. A non-stop eating trip to be exact. Too many delicious foods around. Luckily we have friends in Ipoh back then to guide us to the best-in-town hawker stalls (^_^)V
Arghhh, looks so yummy!!!! Damn, I am on diet!
that coffeeshop where u get that kam fun looks familiar..yeah yeah..the 1s making the drinks are my relatives..their white coffee packs a punch..and the kam fun ar..need at least 2-3 plates to satisfy 1..yummmm
I am drooling over the mua chi right now! So hard to find in KL!
And what in the world is that Lai Niu Har?
Paul: Lai Niu Har is Mantis Prawns. they are these really horrible looking prawns…..the body of a prawn with a head like a praying mantis……..but my god are this buggers delicious!!! eat the steamed with some salt…………yum yum……

Penang Food still da Best!
妈妈: I think hor it tastes similar to 六味 tong sui with egg! 😀
WP: That’s the only explanation i could think of too!
S0p0h: Breakfast lunch dinner for two days ma. ^_^
kormmandos & Karyn: But yong tau foo is different one wor, this one comes with the fishball noodles. Or you can order separately one.
angelyn: see if i got friend get married in muar lo. When you invite me?
Ivy: i saw so many Old Town kopi tiam in KL, one after another! Almost want to vomit liao.
E.Y: Next time you tapao penang food for me wor remember. 🙂
xy: I thought muachi is an imitation of the japanese OMOCHI!!!!!! >_< pikey & Chino: I’d like to tell you too but i dunno where wor, just follow my friends blindly.. Sorry >_< Can anyone help?
chast: Is it? There’s one branch in Aman Suria but sucks too. So i assumed the original one would have been good.
clement & yoke: ya lo i know, they got nothing else to play eh. Repeat 2 times liao!!!
lotsofcravings: Wei then next time got discount a not!
My husband from Ipoh too. I din know tat Ipoh got so many nice foods 🙁 Always go to the same foods only.
I er… muse you?
YES you are absolutely right. Many Ipoh’s food as good if not better than Penang.
I can sort of guess where you went to eat in Ipoh. Must be “LOK WOOI KOI” and “KONG HENG” among others.
Just realised a lot of Penangites here trying to trumpet Penang’s hawker food.
Please la…Ipoh’s food is so much better. Penang can’t even do a proper kai see hor fun. Only good food in Penang is their assam laksa.
can’t wait to come home to ipoh for some char keow theow,melb is not up to stretch!
jeff khoo,greensborough melb
man!! i’m born and bred kat ipoh for the last 20 years but don’t really know there’re so much to eat kat ipoh… guess i’ve been lazy… you’ve just some what made me feel ashamed to call myself ipoh guy…
Haybusa: Now you know where to go! 🙂
can’t go right now leh… i kat PJ studyin’… have to wait till sem break cuz got merdeka day performance practice, can’t afford to even miss one… but anyway, thanks for your kai-siu… man, i’m startin’ to miss ipoh… at least the food la…
all da foods looks delicious…
make me hungry…
wah.. the food look so nice and last time i been there, i enjoy the life there, easy and relaxing.
i went to Ipoh last year, this is my blog article about it:
My late husband was born in Ipoh. We were not married for very long when he passed away. I went to Ipoh for Chinese New Year 2008 to meet the family. Ipoh has the best food in the world and the cheapest. I will always go back to Ipoh. Love it!
I’m from ipoh.Really a lot of good food from Ipoh (not self-boasting)..too sad, i’m now working at Sabah,can only go back occasionally.
ipoh food – what can i say? Better than Penang hands down. Just been down at gurney drive – even the standard of penang laksa dropped…as for the “The famous Ipoh bean sprout chicken.” Dont have to wait if you know where to go – much much better “bean-sprout” more crunchy and thr chicken better than the “for the tourist one” – if you want to know – let me know. As for the best “Ho Hee” – can point you the right direction if you are thinking of popping in.
Ipoh pwn Penang reason #20678: walk into any Ipoh coffee shop and order a glass of teh-peng. 9 times out of 10 the teh-peng is super-yummy. Now try doing the same in Penang. (I can never finish a whole glass of those whatever-you-call-it.)
Taipingite here BTW.
PS. At least Ipoh is still preserving the look of their old shops, when Penang is tearing everything down and rebuild them into nothing resembling the past (Time Square I’m looking at you). And most Penangites these days are crazy about squeezing into overblown Transformers-scale shopping (Queensbay) malls, and give nary a crap about what they eat so long as the food is served in aircon places (that frickking overpriced Chinese place!!).
Oh, and BTW reason #12065: how can you call a duck dish served in black stew a “KWAY CHAP”? Everybody knows Kway Chap is supposed to come with various parts of pigs. IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HALAL. See, this is a kway chap…
