Ipoh is a city with a long history in Malaysia with rich cultural heritage and food culture. There are plenty of traditional food in Ipoh that are must-try for locals and tourists alike. In this article, we will introduce some traditional food.
1. 天津茶室 Restoran Thean Chun
Restoran Thean Chun is just opposite Mistress Lane, and it is a tea room where many tourists come to eat. The signature here is chicken noodle and stewed egg. Chicken Shredded Sand Hor Fun is another unpretentious but delicious dish. The broth stewed with chicken bones and shrimp shells is very sweet, and the Sha Hor Fun is creamy and smooth.
Stewed eggs are better than eating desserts. The slight fishy smell of eggs and the sweetness of caramel are well balanced, and the feeling of popping in your mouth is super happy!

How can you miss dim sum when you come to Ipoh? The dim sum in their home is all handmade, and the clerk will hold a large tray with all kinds of dim sum in it for you to choose what you want to eat.
