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.
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. Who can resist a slice or two of heaven that gives you a sensational taste in every bite you take? Only pizza can make you experience this delectable sensory experience. 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.
Wish I could snap my finger and make half of the hipster cafés in Ipoh turn into dust so that we don’t have to argue where is the next place to have a food review! Hahaha. Too bad this is not the “END GAME”. Most likely our M Makan Kaki(s) food hunting will never meet the end. Wondering where can you dine-in Western and Local cuisine under one roof? Check out this place named Thumbs Café!Vintage and contemporary! The first thing that came up to my mind once we step into the premise. The combination of bar top at the corner complete with high stools and the couches with colorful cushions totally brings us back to the former times.Back then before the Thumbs Café was built, the heritage building was an orphanage dormitory operating under Badan Khidmat Islam Perak (BAKIP). It’s amusing to see how much the place has changed over the years and now becoming one of the famous vintage cafés in Ipoh. It took five minutes for us to choose the right table because each one of them is unique. (Actually, they are looking for a table with perfect lighting, biasalah perempuan selfie tak habis-habis). This place could make an Instagrammers dream come true!
Craving Dim Sum for dinner instead of breakfast? But where can you go? To all Kaki Makan out there especially Muslim foodies’ friends dying to try some Chinese dim sum, check out this place named Greentown Dim Sum Café. We all know most dim sum shops only serve their offerings in the morning, however this time we manage to make a reservation for dinner (even Papa already warn us most of the food will be finish as we arrive). I noticed the café every time I went to the PTPTN (you know why, ha ha ha), I could see crowds enjoying their food there and to be honest after 9 years of its operation, this is the first time I’ve been here (Better late than never!). What surprised us is this café has all races as their customer. That’s why M Makan Kaki(s) decided to have a try on it! Ipoh can be considered as Dim Sum paradise, but not everyone has the opportunity to try it (especially for Muslim). Rest assured! Dim Sum Café is the only outlet in town that holding JAKIM certificate, so it’s absolutely HALAL.
Have you ever seen a restaurant in a heritage Malay House? Stop wondering! Let’s discover more about Restaurant Labu Sayong Signature with us, the M Makan Kaki(s)! May the food be with you. Ha Ha Ha. Labu Sayong Signature was founded by Perak State Development Corporation (PKNP) architecturally based on “Rumah Kutai”, the pre-1900 traditional Malay house synonymous in Perak State, Malaysia. Located a stone’s throw away from the nightlife of Bulatan Amanjaya in Meru Raya, it is a great initiative to promote the silver state’s cuisine and culinary arts.
