Demona: This is one of the famous landmarks for breakfast in Ipoh, since many years back. This place looks like any other chinese kopitiams, but it is actually a halal place. No pork is served here. Hence, you see a mixture of racial crowds happily eating here. Chinese, Indians, Malays, Mat Sallehs. You can get Char Kuey Teow, Laksa, Curry Mee, Loh Baks, Wan Tan Mee, or any food you normally see in a purely chinese kopitiam here.
Demona: I ordered a cup of hot coffee and toast bread with kaya and butter spread. The toast was crunchy and its kaya and butter was nicely coated! The best toast still went to Sin Loong Yong though. The coffee was delicious! Very “KAU” but not too sweet!
Demona: One of my bosses, who is a malay ordered the “Loh Bak”. It is basically a mixture of deep fried fishcake, fishballs, meatballs, tofu etc. They tasted really home made, with very strong fishy and meaty aroma and taste. YUMMY!
Demona: This was another plate of fried tofu. Excellent tofu! The inner texture was extremely smooth, with a crunchy deep fried skin layer on the outside.
Demona: This was the sauce given to dip with the “Loh Bak”s. A delicious complement to them!
Verdict: Homely place for a hearty breakfast meal. This is one of the places that gave me the feeling of “Malaysians as One”, no racial segregation, no judgmental stares. Cheap place for great foodie too!
