Ipoh Mali??

When I was still staying and working in Ipoh, my hometown, my friends and I would often go out together for meal especially on weekends. A bunch of picky eaters we are, where we found ourselves often make comment on the food we had or the service of that particular establishment. No, we’re no food critic, just being passionate about food. We love to eat and of course, we would hope that wherever we go, we could get nice food that worth our hard earned money.

And then, the topic of creating a database or a web portal to gather all the information of these eateries was brought up. Everyone seems excited with plenty of ideas being thrown in but somehow, the idea never got executed until today.

But the idea initially sparked my interest to start food blogging and thus, Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong was born. After involved in the blogsphere for more than one year, I have myself a bunch of new friends who share the same passion for one thing in common – food.

I’m now currently working in PJ, it’s a whole new life and experience to me. And of course, it’s a whole new environment to be explore and hidden treasures (food) to be uncovered. Food blogging has also indirectly ignited my interest in food photography (foodography).

  1. Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I’ve mistaken you as another Jason (from jasonmumbles) at first. That’s y now only I start reading your blog.

  4. hi ipohwav3………….just come across ur site,loved it as i am fr ipoh but living now in melb.keep up the good work man.

  5. Hey, there s’thing different in town.
    U may wana check out this place called β€œsbread” at Midvalley Gardens (Lower Ground Floor, in between the Old and New wing). I’ve sorta tried it in Bangkok before. Really good old fashioned toast with a generous topping of Kaya (that’s really out of this world!!). The kaya has 3 flavours. My favourite is the Yam coz it has REAL yam chunks in it and it’s served hot on your toast. The other one is pandan and vanilla kaya. Apart from kaya, they also hv other interesting spreads like chilli paste with shredded chicken floss. Very unique.

    Worth checking it out! I ordered one and one was definitely not enough! πŸ˜›

  10. Hi there!

    Do you know of any good halal restaurants in Ipoh to host a birthday party for about 10 people?

    Do you know if the Citrus restaurant in Ipoh is halal? I want to invite some of my Muslim friends to the birthday party.

    Thank you!

    Gim Chuan

  11. Lim: Hello. Citrus does not have a halal certification because they serve liquor but they don’t have any pork dishes. I think most of the cafes such as Paprika, Moven Peak and Indulgence follow the same concept.

  12. Bro,

  19. Hello Jason, I am also Ipoh Mali and recently we had open the 1st Mr Wish Fruit Tea outlet in Ipoh Parade. With so many bubble tea brands blooming what is the difference with Mr Wish tea? Mr Wish is the number 1 fruit tea in Taiwan and we use real fruit pulp in making the drinks and it’s more natural and refreshing. Mr. Wish “Drink” Come True.We will like to invite you to try the refreshing drink at our outlet in Ipoh Parade whenever you are back to the nice and charming Ipoh. Do let me know… Maybe upcoming CNY?

  20. I just wondering …your drop this blog space or your drop the habit of food blogging? It was sad to see old people leaving this arena. I remember that was one old timer call Jackson Kah…but no where to be find now?
