DIM SUM & Best CURRY in Ipoh Malaysia

  • Published on Jun 3, 2018
  • I left Kuala Lumpur and drove north to a city that many say is known for their food. On my first half of the day in Ipoh, I had some Kaya toast, the best dry curry noodles, and dim sum. Stay tuned for Part 2 of today!

    The food you had there is not the best. Even we local will not go there. Pls come again... I show you the hidden gem... And there is a famous chicken rice in menglembu wet market you even didn't try it... Omg...

    Smart that you didn't go to Singapore for that. They keep claiming, albeit mistakenly, that their food is better there.

    Few people drink mix drinks. You missed out the very creamy white coffee, that's a $150 million export from Ipoh, miss out in Menglembu peanuts, also a huge export from Ipoh. Then the flaky Chinese cookies.....The best dim sum is Foshan Dim Sum restaurant.

    Those places is great but not the best.
    When you in ipoh first you should try original white coffee + Ganja rice then dim sum.

    Mike, Thanks for coming my hometown and especially where i stay, Menglembu... There is more great food around Menglembu.. You should come again and I can bring you for a food tour.... There is more to offer in Ipoh.. The tour guide ordered the wrong fried noodles, the fried noodles is better if you ordered with prawn, blood cockles and egg... You can try xin quan fang curry noodles too but queue is expected.. Sorry to say, if you ask other people in ipoh they will say Ming Court is not the best, easy to say Dim Sum street dim sum is not nice and that guy didnt order you some Pork Ribs with fermented bean sauce..He is doing it wrong..and you should try Chooi Yue Dim Sum
