My Footsteps at Taiping~

Although we only spent 1 day at Taiping but as a glutton I didn’t miss the chance to try out some of the Taiping food recommended by my Taiping Lang friend Mr. Ooi & the almighty Perak Food Dictionary ~ Motormouth 🙂


Please pardon me as some of the restaurant reviews might be not completed with detailed photo and address.

Our first stop at Taiping. Bismallah Cendol, one of the popular cendol at Taiping. Located nearby Taiping Hospital, on Jalan Barrack.


A cooling treat for the scorching afternoon.


Business was brisk.


Pasembor also available here.


Verdict: Cendol was decent with super huge portion.


Another contender to the throne? Ansari’s Famous Cendol @ Jalan Chung Thye Phin, Taiping, Perak.


Churning out bowls after bowls of cendol to the locals, as well as tourists since 1940.


Almost over-flowing  😛


We had soya bean milk drinks & popiah (with lard inside) here.

Typical Chinese restaurant setting ~ Red table cloths & plastic chairs.
Braised Pork Belly aka Dong Poh Yuk 东坡肉
Luscious pork belly with exquisite layers of fat & lean meat doused in sweet sticky gravy. 
Sesame Chicken

Served with citrus-ty sauce, the chicken was slightly over-fried  rendering the tough and dry texture of the meat >///<



Blanched Lettuce

Total: RM 34.00 included 2 rice & Chinese tea pot.


Larut Matang Food Court

Food court with both Halal & Non-Halal food.


Stall No. 78, highly recommended by Mr. Ooi.


Taiping Style Fish Ball Char Koay Teow


Wetter than the Northern (Penang) version with fish balls & char siew. No offense but not my cup of tea 😛


Take away for Mr. Ooi, 10 pkts of them!


Trip to Taiping will never complete without a visit to the infamous Taiping Lake Garden.

The street is shaded by rows Angsana Trees.


We enjoyed the serenity & tranquility here.
