A cup of coffee in Ipoh is a must! Thanks to Old Town White Coffee branding, today everyone knows that Ipoh is the best city in Malaysia to sip a cuppa of aromatic white coffee!
Unlike the folks in other places, Ipoh's residents seldom go for the 3-in-1 sachet of the white coffee on supermarket aisle. What they are fond of doing is heading downtown to spoil themselves at the kopitiams near Kinta Heights 20 story-flat! The popular white coffee rendezvous that most talk about refers to the crossed road where Jalan Bandar Timah intersects with Persiaran Bijeh Timah (refer to Google Map below) with three pioneers here. Sun Yuan Loong and Sun Yuan Foong stands side by side like twins but they are actually a couple combining their 'last' name - "Loong Foong" or "Dragon & Phoenix" are auspicious mythical beings in Chinese literature. And Nam Heong - the founder of Old Town White Coffee lies across of the road. This piece of precious information was what I heard from our hospitable host - an Ipoh born and bred boy! He added that his parents visit these rustic coffee shops for high tea (tea time snacks) on weekends as routine.
With so much information to digest, guess what? We forgot to capture the most hunted image here - a cup of white coffee! Make sure you do that :)
