When it comes to street food in Malaysia, most people often cite Penang right off the bat, but for those who likes something perhaps more comforting, Ipoh street food is a great alternative. If you’re in KL looking for a taste of what Ipoh has to offer, Avenue K’s Ipoh Market Street (non halal) should be in your short list.

Walking out from KLCC LRT station, take a right turn and keep walking towards the end, you’ll find Ipoh Market Street on your right. The diminutive entrance opens up into a pretty decent size dining hall with a menu filled with a good selection of dishes hailed from the city that was famous for tin mining.

One thing to note – Ipoh Market Street at Avenue K is a non-halal restaurant.

The signature dish here is the Ipoh Curry Mee (RM 11.90) that comes with chicken stripes, roast pork, mint, lime, and your choice of noodle. I thought the broth does pack a punch and the inclusion of roast pork made everything that much better. Definitely satisfying for someone who wants a jolt over lunch, I liked it.

The soft boil egg on toast (RM 4.90) was my favorite dish over the tasting period. In fact, I went back a week later to specifically order this and savior it slowly. Perfect soft boil eggs on perfectly toasted bread, as simple as they are delicious.

The Ipoh white coffee (RM 4.50) here is one of their specialty, and always with proper thick foam too. If you like full bodied creamy coffee, this would definitely satisfy.

Ipoh caramel custard egg is something that seems sorta out of place at this “kopitiam” style restaurant, but I thought the dessert was more than decent, like most dishes we tried here.

Other than noodle dishes and light meals, Ipoh Market Street also serve “tai chao”, or hot wok style of meal from 5-10 pm daily. We only managed to try their spicy chili crispy pork fried rice (RM 11.80) and it was pretty decent, though I’d want to have the portion to be a bit smaller so that the pork to rice ratio is higher tho, but for those with a big appetite, it is definitely not a bad thing.
