Overall, everything sucks.
When you pay a visit to Nam Heong Ipoh, you will be greeted by eight of these Beauty Goddess 女神 like Dilraba Dilmurat, Hannah Quinlivan, Michelle Reis, Fan Bingbing, and Angelababy at Nam Heong Ipoh SOHO outlet The intention of using the robots was to improve the service efficiency and to cut down the waiting time by half from the present of 20 minutes during peak hours. Apart from this, it's much fun to watch these celebrities i-Waitresses Robots move around to serve food to diners at the restaurant.
Korean Samyang Buldak (hot Spicy Chicken) Ramyun Ramen. Samyang Hot Chicken Ramen, commonly known as the fire noodles are bound to leave you wanting more of its spice! It is known for being one of the spiciest ramyeon available in the Korean market. The flakes are made up of dried laver and sesame seeds. Made in Korea.
The Yu Kong Hor (RM 10) really very delicious, smooth and tasty.
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.
Tuck Kee is one of the oldest establishments in Ipoh. Known for its noodles and other items.
The are reasons this place is famous: fast, affordable, simple, tasty, accessible (location and hours wise).
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.
滑嫩嫩的豆腐花配上甜度刚刚好的糖浆, 一口一口在我嘴里玩着溜溜板的游戏, 一不小心就直接滑进我的喉咙里~ 整碗豆腐花下肚, 感觉似乎有点不过瘾~
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.
Beansprouts and Chicken. That is probably the major dish that people come to Ipoh to eat. If you come, you have to have it.
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.
The white coffee was smooth and tasted like mocha. The hor fun was really silky and the broth prawny and savoury – as good as I remembered it to be.
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 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. 😉
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.
Just a humble staple of rice, curries, chutney and a piece of fried chicken but Yong Suan Nasi Kandar packs in the crowds daily and is famous well beyond little Ipoh town.
Serviceable dim sum. Nothing out of the ordinary, despite the constant long queue.
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.
This shop remains one of the most popular tourist restaurants in Ipoh. The place is probably too small and too crowded. We didn't dine here, just tapau their egg tart (RM 2.60) and chicken bun..
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.
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.
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.
