For the benefit of our outstation friends who come to Ipoh for the sole purpose of having a good meal, instead of focusing on a particular hawker food, Ipoh Echo will be featuring a particular place to eat.
Since time immemorial, most of us remember the corner coffee shop across the road from Kamdar – Loke Wooi Kee. Most of us will also remember having a meal there after marketing or shopping. It was a treat for kids to have caramel custard and a 7 Up float. Except for some renovation, not much has changed. For visitors who are in the neighbourhood, here’s some of Ipoh’s iconic food (minus the satay) all under one roof.
Chicken Rice, RM3.00
Curry Mee, RM3.90
Rojak, RM4.50 and RM5.50 with prawn cracker
Penang Fried Koay Teow, RM4.00
