Though long queue, the turnover was fast and I have no complaints about their service for they are friendly and food was quick to be served.
Very satisfying dinner/supper before heading home for a good night's sleep.
Another one of their popular dishes is the boiled baby octopus (RM18). The price is pretty steep, and the portion is not that big either, but you’ll be rewarded with springy, chewy pieces of baby octopi, drizzled in a light soy sauce and fragrant fried shallots.
The hotel was serious about its offerings and service.
Our room gives an immediate sense of relaxation, thanks to the soft earthy hues of the furnishings and relaxing spaciousness. The large bathroom comes with strong rain shower and a stand-alone bath tub for that luxurious touch. We love the bed – the bedding is really comfortable and we had some blissful sleep here. From our room, we enjoyed a pleasing vista of the sprawling city and the roll of picturesque limestone hills in the distance.
Verdict: I like its great location and our room was in top notch cleanliness. It was indeed a pleasant stay at WEIL Hotel, Ipoh and would highly recommend if you’re planning to visit Ipoh.
The price is on a steeper side considering it costs almost a dollar SGD but its still worth a try if you are in the area.

The M Boutique Hotel is frequently referred to as whimsical, quirky and unique. Guests can choose from 93 rooms, all of which exude an atmosphere of total peace and harmony. The hotel offers an excellent variety of recreational facilities, including fitness center. M Boutique Hotel is an ideal place of stay for travelers seeking charm, comfort and convenience in Ipoh. I really love the design of the rooms
Verdict: My stay here was great and my photos certainly do not do much justice to the grand ambience and design of the M Boutique Hotel. Service was generally friendly and prompt for both check in/out counter and restaurant. Come and experience yourself! If you adore boutique hotel setting, you might want to consider M Boutique Hotel!
Verdict: I really imparted high expectation on this due to all the raving and positive reviews in the internet but it did not impress us as much as we thought it would.
Verdict Taste wise, the uniqueness of this dish was the curry and the addition of chutney and salted egg. While the chicken breast was hard, we found the drumstick to be quite tender and flavourful. Do tell the staff which chicken part you want to avoid disappointment. The portion has slightly decreased compared to few years ago, nonetheless you can ask for extra rice which is charged affordably at only RM0.50.
I personally will give this place a miss as chicken rice back home is one of our unofficial national dish and most stalls can beat this place hands down.
We consider Lou Wong chicken portion is slightly bigger (talking about single portion here) than what we had in KL and definitely well worth it, texture-wise is obviously succulent and juicy at its best (with some white jello around the chicken skin), basically other than that, nothing much to shout about because it just tastes almost the same compared to other common steam chicken.
Price-wise, it's slightly pricey.
The curry mee here is not just those like from Penang with loads of “siham” and all. The curry mee is filled with the aromatic flavours of chili oil.
The curry comes with a thick broth, has its own unique distinctive taste and smell of spices, you cant compare this with the KL or Penang version since it is at a different level, definitely worth to taste once in a lifetime if you are avid to curry noodles.
Xin Quan Fang, fondly known as ‘ma ta liu curry mee’ to locals churns out inarguably the best Hainanese curry mee and bean sprouts in town. It is just a stone’s throw away from the famous Nasi Ganja. Funny how two of the most famous food in Ipoh are just across a street from each other.
For noodle, instead of ordering the usual chicken curry and bbp pork, I ordered koay teow which is flat rice noodle with bbq pork and roast pork with thick curry gravy. This is my type of delicious "messy" curry noodle.
This time, instead of my usual curry noodle (dry version), I ordered this curry noodle (soup version) for a change. This is just as good as the dry version.
The curry noodle house was founded by a Hainanese man and their curry is made of 20 types of spices with secret blend.
The Caramel Custard served in Restaurant Thean Chun tastes so good with the perfect combination of the egg, milk and caramel.
The Custard here is probably one of the best or maybe the best in Ipoh city.
The satay itself is not too bad but I would still prefer the ones I can get in Malacca.
来到怡保，怎能错过到【The Alley 鹿角巷】打卡呢？ 最近火红的饮料 ：黑糖珍珠奶茶！！！
Both drink (Royal Milk Tea (M) and The Alley Milk Tea (M) tastes delicious. It tastes something different compare to the normal milk tea, you can get in KL. For me, it has a lovely hint of Jasmine Tea flavour that give a good taste to the drink. Royal Milk Tea (M) @ RM 7.50 (Add Tapioca RM 1) and The Alley Milk Tea (M) @ RM 8.40
Best Bubble Tea in Ipoh , Perak!!
Steamed pork ribs – soft, succulent and juicy, has a light salty hint of black soybean, taste great and appetizing.
Overall was a pleasant dining experience and once we finished our food, we proceed to the counter to make payment with our order chit.
Dim Sum prices here are between rm$2.25 to rm$5.65 but most items are between rm$3.80 to rm$4.15; noticeably cheaper than Klang Valley, but Iporians already complaining the price here have increased due to tourist.
The experience was delighting and if there are more stomach spaces, I do not mind having more of such bowls.
Service was friendly and before we left, the stall lady even greet and thank us for coming. Compared back to our home, we hardly had such "treatment" from hawkers that warm our hearts.
First up, we order a plate of Sotong Kangkung RM10.00 served with lots of brown squids, kangkung (water spinach), coarse peanut and drenched with sweet sauce. The brown squid, kangkung and peanut trio blend pretty well with the mild starchy sweet sauce, overall tastes are pretty awesome and definitely the best snack choice in tong sui kai. We literally just finished everything within bites by using chopsticks. 😉
Steamed Beancurd Skin Roll RM5.20 – two big rolls, remain steamy hot prior serve, soft and juicy while packed with pork and shrimp fillings.
Foh San Dim Sum Restaurant has very extensive menu of Dim Sum and other delicacies.
Reluctantly change plan to Foh San Dim Sum with a not so happy mood. We already know that despite being a highly-mentioned restaurant, the not-so-good comments they have are a lot too. Established since 1971, this award-winning restaurant is undeniably one of the first few eateries that will cross the mind of many when asked “what to eat in Ipoh for breakfast”. Is just like you will go for Pun Chun Duck Noodles when in Bidor. Famous, but, not our first choice
Nothing beats the Iced Ipoh White Coffee RM2.80 with an aromatic taste of coffee bean, feels even more smooth after ice melts a little bit, goes superb well with Nam Heong egg tart.
Kedai Makanan Nam Heong has several more stalls that sell various hawker dishes, but we have yet to taste any of them.
Old Nam Heong is a good place for an old town Ipoh coffee shop experience - it is one of the pioneers of Ipoh white coffee and everything is still like it was in the beginning.
The grilled fish was this halibut, nicely done with crispy skin and as expected of a white fish the flesh was tender and had hardly any fat. Overall a good dish, except for the mash potato which was rather soft.
The Crab fried rice had a simple presentation but surprised everyone with its astonishing depth of flavour and wok hei (breath of the wok) – something that can only be achieved by cooking the ingredients over high heat, sealing in all the flavours. It boasted just the right amount of seasoning – not too bland nor salty – and the sambal chilli sauce gave it a spicy kick.
We were recommended to try Chicken Maryland, an off-menu item that his portion could cater for 2 person. The dish is flawless in execution - nicely deep fried chicken breast of generous portion, served along with sausage, ham piece, wedges, French fries and salad. Nevertheless, I would not say it was mind-boggling as well. It weighed as a simple yet nice comfort food that I would glad to enjoy.
Ipoh-style chee cheong fun differs from what you can find in KL or places like Penang, in that it features mushroom sauce. This is unlike your Western-style creamy mushroom sauce, but is instead made from shiitake mushrooms, making for a broth with a lighter, darker consistency. The noodles are garnished with sesame seeds and fried shallots.
A great place to hit good renditions of a few Ipoh signature dishes in one go.
Kaya Butter Toast (RM 4.80) Since I am looking for some light bites, I ordered their toast bread which comes awesomely good. The toast bread all beautifully toast till perfection and with the light crust. The bread is spread with kaya at one side and Margerine at the other side. Nice.
For those who loves rice and dry curry meat, this will be a good choice.
Curry noodle @ RM 10.80 The red oil gave the impression that it was very spicy. It was not very spicy because my friend, who can't take too spicy food, enjoyed the curry very much. This is one of the best curry noodle we have tasted.
Flavourful chicken with thick soy sauce - their signature dish.
Assam curry fish (black pomfret)
A must order - Assam Curry Fish (Stingray) Long beans, brinjals and tofu puffs were added.
The pub have some quiet/private corners as well, a little bit further away from the life band. Great experience and excellent time here with a Chardonnay between my fingers!
Ever wonder where I always hang out? This place became one of my most frequently visited places since its open for business. Hails ...
