Located on busy Jalan Kuala Kangsar in a double shop lot is Restoran Kim Bo – a coffee shop which has about seven food stalls.

Their Guang Xi Zai Chicken Rice (RM3) is well worth the price and the taste. For those who like a milder Curry Mee (with mint leaves), can try it from RM4.20. This stall also sells Asam Laksa. Chap Farn or Economy Rice, starts from RM4.50 for 2 meat 1 vege dishes. A must try is their excellent Ipoh White Coffee – from RM1.40. Many varieties of Bitter Gourd Pork Noodles are available starting from RM4.30 while the Fish Noodles are RM5. Unfortunately, on the day we went, the Ginger Wine Chicken or Pork (RM5) was finished and we never got to try it. This came highly recommended and so did the Tom Yam Noodles – from RM5.30. There is also Tom Yam rice – RM5.70. Another meal that finishes fast if the Tai Loke Mee – from RM4.

Others to try:  Wat Tan Hor RM4 (which also sells Yee Mee and Fried Rice); Chee Cheong Fun, Pan Mee, Wonton Mee, Mee Rebus, Fried Hokkien Mee (RM4.20) and Fried Kwayteow (RM4.20).
