Tai Kar Rock is Ipoh's household brand as I can still remember during my childhood time, my family will bring us to eat our breakfast there, it is always crowded and we have to stand next to the table to pressure the guest to eat faster :) I would say they serve the best "Liu Fun" in Ipoh beside "Tai Shi Kiok", their fried bean-curd is one of the best served with dried chilli hor fun.

Everybody know Ipoh are famous for Chicken Beansprout dish and the first name came to their mind is "Loh Wong" which today became the tourist attraction place. But for Ipoh people, most of us don't go there to eat chicken beansprout, this outlet called "Cowen Street Chicken" is the outlet you must try if you want to taste what Ipoh people preferred. To tell you a little story, the owner of this restaurant had some health challenges previously and the shop was closed for a long period of time, many of us waited for sometime, when he finally returned to business, everybody started to flood that place in fear that they might not be able to taste such great food again.

If you would to ask the locals, they will tell you they prefer this outlet for Dim Sum compared to the one across the street called Foh San. Although this is not my first choice but they taste really good and I must say the best in Ipoh. One of the thing I dislike about the place is that you have to stand next to the table to wait for seat instead of having someone managing the queue with numbers or something. Anyway if you really want to go (which you must), it's better for you to share tables with others than to wait for an empty table (sorry if you goes with a group of 10). Generally you might have to wait for more than 20 mins to get seat. Also another note that the portion of the Dim Sum are generally smaller compare to Foh San however, the taste are so much better.

This is not a restaurant.... I must say that this is the MUST-HAVE take away of Ipoh. After all your food exploration, sight-seeing exploration and you're ready to pack and go back home... Please remember to drive through (yes, drive through) this shop and wave your figure (not the middle one) to show how many you want... the guy standing at the shop will quickly rush over to your car to deliver your delicious salted chicken. Next you realised, it also aromatised your whole car with salted chicken smell. It is currently price at RM19/box (whole chicken), I still remember it was used to be RM14/box, look how inflation affect us but what the heck... it is still a damn good chicken to have.

Burps & Giggles is a new venture by the people behind Indulgence. The place was absolutely buzzing.. The tables were all packed, the grill busy churning out burgers and hungry unseated patrons in a queue, watching the other diners like hawks. The decor and the ambiance uses lots of rustic wood, kitschy vintage knick-knacks, distressed walls on one side, and a bright sunlit courtyard on the other side. Burps & Giggles is a place with lots of personality and a story to tell. Waze there: https://waze.to/lr/hw0zfhhf3d

Parks & Nature
This place is like a hidden jam lost in the middle of the city. When we first visited the place, we were amazed to see such beautiful lake and cave that we never knew they're just right behind the road that we always drove past. If you like to explore nature, this is quite economical where u just need to pay for the ferry to transport u to the opposite side of the lake where u explore the nature. The place are not very well kept as the entrance fees are low but the nature sight of it is worth a visit. Waze there: https://waze.to/lr/hw0zfk6gv9

This is the famous spot of Ipoh, almost all tourist will somehow landed on this spot, it is actually just a narrow street or a lorong in Malay, famously known as Concubine street (Yi Lai Kai). There're many good local foods surrounded that place beside just the street alone. Don't put too much hope on it as it is a very short street. It became well known due to the famous film director Ang Lee shot the movie "Lust Caution" about 10 years ago. The movie title itself compliment the name of the street very well as the history of the street stayed by many concubine of tycoon during the fifties. It is a very nice place for photo shooting I must say as you can get that back-in-time feel. Waze there: https://waze.to/lr/hw0zfhhdz9

As heritage houses go in the heart of old town Ipoh, the Hakka Miners’ clubhouse Han Chin Pet Soo - is one of the more prominent ones and has been a source of curiosity amongst the locals who never got to enter it. Located along Jalan Bijeh Timah, the imposing three-storey building was originally called Han Chin Pat Sou; Han Chin was the name given to the building while Pat Sou is Hakka for villa. Back then, the clubhouse was open only to Hakka miners and the Hakka community so those who were not members were not allowed into its inner sanctum. The museum is more of a showcase of the buildings’ impressive architecture, its original antiques that have been there since 1893 and the goings-on inside behind the white painted doors with only some sections on tin mining. - See more at: http://www.themalaymailonline.com/travel/article/han-chin-pet-soo-a-glimpse-at-the-life-of-hakka-tin-miners-in-ipoh#sthash.88GJGFuG.dpuf Waze there: https://waze.to/lr/hw0zfhheqx

From the architect. Sekeping Kong Heng, in the charming old town of Ipoh, is the latest addition to the Sekeping family of retreats. It is located in a 3 storey neo-classical building which also houses a famous coffee shop of the same name on the ground floor that serves great coffee and the best local dishes in town. All effort has been made to preserve as much of the character of the existing building as possible in contrast to the surrounding new architectural interventions. In addition, an extension has been added at the back, tucked away to reveal an inner courtyard with a dramatic stairway to take guests up to their rooms.
