Yat Yat Seng serves ones of the best dry curry mee and bean sprout chicken noodles in town. It's not as crowded as the super famous ones such as Thean Chun or Sin Quan Fang, so you don't have to wait for too long for the delicious dishes. It's also just 3 minutes drive from the homestay and I would highly recommend this if you are in the neighbourhood.

BEST Japanese restaurant in Ipoh. Even Ipohans don't know about this place. Ingredients are the freshest and the dishes are creative. The chef is half Japanese and is certified to cook for royalties in Japan. He offers set meals from RM 88 per person (may sound expensive, but absolutely worth it), you will need to call in advance to make a reservation.

Thean Chun is an iconic place serving Ipoh's most famous dish- "gai si hor fun" (shredded chicken noodles). Pretty much everything is good at this kopitiam - satay (uniquely done with pork and pork intestines), popiah, kangkong sotong. The egg custard was once the best but the kopitiam changed hands so now the custard is slightly different but still good.

Classic Chinese restaurant with innovative dishes such as shrimps with blue berry sauce. The signature dish is iced "gu lu yok" (iced deep fried pork nugget); this dish needs to be prebooked. It's all the way in Menglembu but worth the trip because food is great and value for money. You can typically eat for less than RM 15 per pax. You need to be there by 5.45 pm to avoid waiting. expect minimum of one hour wait if you go at peak hour.
