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
- Popiah, RM3.80
- Chicken Soup Koay Teow, RM3.80
- Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun, RM3.20
- Hor Hee, RM3.80
- Dai Kao Meen (big apom balik), RM0.80
- Caramel custard, RM2.30 (a good size serving)
There may be an increase in the prices for Chinese New Year.
