The grand-daddy of them all has to be Foh San Dim Sum, which has recently moved to a spanking new premise on Jalan Leong Sin Nam; the undisputed “Dim Sum Street” of Ipoh. But of course, along the same road, you’ll find two equally famous names, being Ming Court Hong Kong Tim Sum, and Yoke Fook Moon, all within walking distance from each other. Of course, if all these restaurants are packed like sardines.
