Restoran Ipoh Kong Heng @ Ipoh, Perak

Restoran Ipoh Kong Peng that is located along Jalan Bandar Timah, Ipoh is one of the oldest Kopitiam's that is still in existence in Ipoh. They are located along Jalan Bandar Timah and this coffee shop has a number of delicacies that is still sought after by the locals. 

The Restaurant Located Along Jalan Bandar Timah, Ipoh

Closed On Wednesdays

Ipoh White Coffee
This is my first time here and I basically came here as the place came highly recommended. They have a number of stalls inside this coffee shop that is famous in it's own way. Firstly, I wanted to try their famous Egg Caramel but was told that it was sold off already. Sad that we came for a late breakfast and missed this lovely desert. So, I ordered a cup of White Coffee and subsequently tried a number of stalls there. Another stall that is famous here is the Chee Cheong Fun Stall and unfortunately, those guys too were closed for the day. Coming back to the White Coffee, it was really good. Lovely aroma and the blend of flavours were awesome. 9/10 would be my rating for this drink. 

Very Famous Popiah Stall

Mixed Popiah @ RM 5.00
The Popiah Stall here is very famous and that you can see from the number of newspaper write-ups that are pasted on the stall. This stall is operated by an elderly aunty and her daughter. The main items that they sell are the Wet and Fried Popiah which is what most people come here for. Besides that, they also do serve Assam Laksa as well. Being a fan of Popiah, we decided to go for one each and it was priced at RM 5.00 for the platter. Both the Fried as well as the Wet Popiah was awesome. It has been a long time since I had a Popiah that was this good. 10/10 would be my rating for this. If you're at this coffee shop, their Popiah is a must try. 

Hokkien Prawn Mee Stall

Hokkien Prawn Mee @ RM 6.50
This was just another stall that was there in the Coffee Shop and since the Chee Cheong Fun stall was closed for the day, we decided to give these guys a try too. The mix of ingredients were good but to be honest, the broth was very disappointing. It was almost tasteless and it tasted somewhat like plain soup. The entire flavours that you would expect in a bowl of Prawn Mee was lacking. My recommendation would be to avoid this stall, to at least this particular dish from this stall. If I were to rate this preparation, I would only give it 2/10. 

Fried Noodles Stall

Duck Egg Char Kuey Teow @ RM 7.00
This was another stall that seemed to be having lot's of customers and despite Tham having a number of noodles and fried items dishes, most people were going for their Duck Egg Char Kuey Teow. Seeing that, I too ordered a plate of Duck Egg Char Kuey Teow and it was priced at RM 7.00 . I would say that it was pricey for Ipoh as the pricing was comparable to the ones that we get in Kuala Lumpur. Despite that, I would not complain as the Char Kuey Teow was so good. Seriously, it was one of the best Duck Egg Char Kuey Teow's that I have tasted. A highly recommended preparation and they were quit generous with the ingredients. The entire preparation was so good that I was contemplating if I should order another one. 10/10 would be my rating for this dish.  

Restoran Ipoh Kong Heng is one of the old school Coffee Shops that is still going strong in Ipoh. Based on what we had tried this morning, I would recommend going for the Duck Egg Char Kuey Teow, Fried & Wet Popiah and White Coffee. Unfortunately the Chee Cheong Fun stall was closed this morning and that too seems to be quite popular which I think would be worth trying. Please do go early as it tends to be quite crowded later on and there are limited seating. A must visit Coffee Shop when you're in Ipoh.
