Whenever I'm at Ipoh, I only know how to drive to the few popular places for the glorious Ipoh food, and one of it is the Kedai Kopi Kong Heng right in the old street town of Ipoh.


People from all over come to Ipoh for their famous hor fun, chee cheong fun, white coffee and Kong Heng is the one-stop place to start all your food adventures in Ipoh. Kong Heng and it's next door neighbor Restoran Thean Chun, has been around since the 60s and still serves up the whole plethora of great local food till today.


Kong Heng is ever so popular with the locals and tourists alike. Every time we visit this coffee shop, it's a tussle for tables and chairs. Getting a table here is no easy feat, one has to be ruthless and prey like a hungry vulture.


Ipoh sar hor fun, which are rice flat noodles prepared in hard water and served in clear chicken and prawn soup with chicken shreds, prawns and spring onions. In the 50s, Mee Chai perfected the now iconic Ipoh sar hor fun and it is sold today by his disciple in Kong Heng and his son in Thean Chun - they said, if you never try their sar hor fun, you've never been to the real Ipoh yet!

My bowl of Ipoh sar hor fun (RM 3.70), touted as one of the best sar hor fun in Ipoh. It was definitely alot better than most of the hor fun soup I've ever had in KL. The hor fun were very smooth and literally glide down your throat - it probably has to do with the mountain water in Ipoh. The soup was light and sweet but I used to remember it was much better before. It's either the holiday season or my aging taste-bud is dying.


One of the more popular items to order in Kong Heng is the pork satay. Pork satay is a rare commodity in Malaysia, what's more when they have pork innards and coagulated pork blood satay!

Succulent skewers of pork satay (RM 0.60/stick), grilled to perfection and served with spicy sweet peanut sauce. It tasted okay but it wasn't as good as the pork satay from Malacca and Muar towns.

Next on the list was the famous popiah (RM 1.70/each), wrapped with generous filling of the turnips, crunchy fried small prawns and some vegetable fillings. The skin wasn't all soggy, it was fresh, thin and spread with sweet red chili sauce. And they do have the other version of fried popiah for the same price.


Cincau white coffee, the real cuppa coffee that you can't get else where except in Ipoh.

Verdict: If you're a tourist, this is probably one of the best one-stop place for all your famous Ipoh food and it's easy to find your way there! But, they're probably better, cheaper and less crowded coffee shops in Ipoh, the locals would probably know it and avoid such tourist packed coffee shop like Kong Heng and Thean Chun.

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out
    there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations?
    Thanks a lot!
