There are not many stall or restaurants offering Halal Korean food in Ipoh. There are also popular franchise like Myeongdong Toppokki and Choo Choo Chicken, but not a local homegrown one. I found this Korean food stall when I went for groceries shopping at Tesco Hypermarket Ipoh Garden as this stall is located at their food court.
Well, here’s the verdict:-
Food:- Surprisingly good! Hope more choices will be available in future. Nevertheless, kudos to the owner for the great food!
Environment:- Normal Tesco foodcourt.
Nins Cabin Cafe is a fusion food cafe located at the heart of Ipoh town near the Padang Ipoh (Ipoh Field). This cafe served range of dishes from brunch to dinner. I frequently went here during the lunch time as this cafe is near my office and I love it since they have plenty choices of food from western to local.
So here are my verdict for this cafe:-
Food:- Many choices. I like the Buttermilk Chicken with rice set. The Lemon Chicken is also nice. Overall, the food taste good.
Environment:- Cafe are clean. Service, sometimes, a bit slow, especially during peak hour. But rarely to happened. Waiters are friendly~
If you craved for special muslim friendly, pork free Indian cuisine in Ipoh, I might say, this is the place to go. The Andersonians’ Club served southern Indian cuisine for lunch and what so special about it, it is served on a banana leaf and it has been in business for many years.
Before this, I’ve been to the banana leaf restaurant in Bangsar and I think this restaurant is as good as there if not better (for the taste). So, before I go to the photos, let me give my verdict first:-
Potterhead, rejoice! There’s new cafe in Ipoh town which inspired by the famous Harry Potter movie and it was named Platform 9 1/2 Cafe (in Harry Potter movie, Platform 9 3/4 of Kings Cross Station was a spot where the students use to enters the magical world of witchcraft and wizardry). However, bear in mind that this cafe is not whatsoever directly associated or related with the official Harry Potter movie.
So, whats good here? Well, one thing I want to try is of course the Butterbeer (here in this cafe they name it Butterbrew, for obvious reason) which is a famous beverage in the movie. I’ve tried the original Butterbeer in World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Japan, so I want to know whether this one taste the same.
Before I go with the photos, as usual, here’s my verdict of this cafe:-
When you being told or ask about any good Nasi Kandar in Ipoh, for sure, Nasi Kandar Ayam Merah or Nasi Ganja Yong Suan will come in your mind right? Last time, I have posted about one unpopular but a legendary Nasi Kandar in Ipoh, Majeedia Nasi Kandar Ayam Ros, Ipoh. In this post, I will write about another unpopular choice of Nasi Kandar in Ipoh which I think you should try. It is known as Nasi Kandar Tayub in Taman Tasek Damai, Ipoh.
So let’s see how good is it through photo, but before that, here’s my verdict:-
Food:- The Ayam Merah (red chicken or sambal chicken) is flavory and nice. Not very spicy too. Overall, I love it and somehow rather, it gives me some other Nasi Kandar choice as good as Nasi Ganja. I was also being recommended to try the lamb curry by the netizens, so later on maybe I will try it. The side sambal is not as good as Nasi Ganja’s.
Following the last year’s tradition, I am releasing the first version of the Malaysia Horse Calendar for the year 2020.
Why I say it is the first version is because at this moment I cannot finalize on the school holidays as the official release of the schedule have yet to be issued by the government (Ministry of Education specifically) The Ministry of Education had released the School holidays calendar.
Therefore, at interim, I release the first version of Malaysian Horse Calendar pending the issuance of the official schedule by the government for ease reference by you. Kindly take note that there is no school holidays yet in the calendar.
It is a very long time already I had this level of excitement when I want to review a food spot. But this place, really, something I’ve dreamt of to own one for myself. A place with a good coffee, air conditioned, nice ambience surrounded by nature/trees/flowers. I have seen this kind of cafe a lot when I came to visit Seoul (Nami Island to be specific), Korea last time.
So, whats so special about this place? Well, first, it was located inside a plant nursery. The ambience was very nice, it was decorated and surrounded by flowers and trees and a method of planting known as Terrarium. Having coffee here was super nice!
Second, the food was awesome. They have plenty of choices in their menu and they served from breakfast to dinner. Truly, for me, the taste of the food tad bit above my expectation. But most of their menu are western foods. Hope one day they can offer some local delicacies too.
So my verdict?
Imagine the above view while having your kampung style lunch, wouldn’t that be awesome?! Well, you can enjoy the serenity of paddy field view while having your lunch at this restaurant.
“Restoran Hamizi Selera Utara” is located at Bota Kiri, Perak which is around 40km from Ipoh town and located at the roadside of Ipoh-Lumut highway.
The view is not the only one that is interesting here, but the choices of the lauk (dishes) is another things that you should consider when coming to this restaurant. They have plethora of kampung style dishes to choose from!
Anyway, before serving you with the photos, let me give my verdict first.
Food:- Plenty of traditional Malay dishes to choose. In fact, there are several types of grilled fish to choose from. Its very delicious too~
Price:- The price is affordable.
Environment:- The serenity of the paddy field plus the kampung style dishes, what more can you ask for.
Anyway enjoy more photos below:-
