Watching the busy traffic at Medan Gopeng, the M Makan Kaki’s stomach is growling in anticipation of our approaching dinner at De Bois Cafe. Mundane roads turn into eclectic terrace houses, highlighted by the bright sparkling yellow rooftop ‘De Bois’ signboard with spacious parking.
This time around, we whisked ourselves to savor the exotic taste of our friendly neighbor Thailand. What’s there to not love about Thai Food? The delicate balance of sweetness, spiciness and sourness all in one mouthful. Luckily Malaysians are accustomed to having chili in our diet, but our neighbor takes it up a notch, which leaves us with a burning palate and loads of sniffles. So it’s off to Ipoh Soho for Lanna Thai, a restaurant that was previously located at Ipoh Garden East.
There is something about the combination of crispy dough, melted cheese, meat and greens in a pizza that makes it so easy to love and enjoy by people.

There are numerous pizza restaurants in Ipoh that serve up really exquisite pizzas, but one of the best haunts serving mouth-watering selection of thin-crust pizzas with generous ingredients is Miker’s.

More and more shops are popping up around Ipoh recently. Just name it! Xing Fu Tang, Daboba, The Alley and much more.
Here comes another food review from the M Makan Kakis. In this episode, we discovered a quaint and cosy restaurant which serves Peranakan (Nyonya) Delights with a Twist. Dong at Hale Street, located at the heart of the city, just a street away from the hustle and bustle of Concubine Lane. Dong is a place where one can partake in local dishes whilst enjoying a glass of wine. Opened by a team of well known F&B operators of cafes in Ipoh, they challenged themselves to take on local cuisines, differing from their other cafés. The concept was to create a laid-back and chill environment for millinieals to appreciate our food history.
