Do you wish to shop and dine in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere? It would be ideal if the said place is somewhere within the city but minus the freneticism that city life entails. There is one such place here in Ipoh and that place is Silveritage Galleria at Medan Gopeng. It provides the kind of ambience you long for.

After undergoing a massive facelift, courtesy of the state government, Silveritage Galleria is now open to the public. The two-storey contemporary building, evident from its minimalistic design, stresses on freshness and greenery. The aesthetic of the building is a major attraction to visitors who go there either for leisure or to simply while away their time.

Silveritage Galleria is located at Medan Gopeng along Jalan Raja Dr Nazrin Shah (formerly Jalan Gopeng). It is, technically, at the centre of Ipoh, minutes away from iconic Old Town.

A mini stage on the ground floor provides space for entertainment whenever the occasion demands. The food court is adjacent to it. Over 20 stalls fill the space selling a mixed melange of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Make a beeline to the trendy cafe nearby to enjoy laksa sarang telur a recently-concocted dish favoured by Ipohites.

Café Labu Sayong, on the mezzanine floor, is for those who pine for traditional Perak cuisines. Here, one can savour authentic Malay dishes and desserts such as ikan tongkol pindang daun kunyit and tepek pisang, to name a few.

For shoppers, there are boutiques and outlets selling clothing and traditional Malay handicrafts. The selection is varied, you will be spoilt for choice. If you are on a souvenir-hunting trip this is the place for you.

The facility is open daily from 10am till 10pm. A covered parking lot, under the watchful eyes of security guards, provides free parking for visitors. Come and experience, first-hand, the friendly goodness of Silveritage Galleria.
