What started as a local haunt decades has now fallen prey to commercialization. You will see hordes of weekend tourists flocking to this restaurant from as early at 11ish for lunch. Why? Because the seating capacity is insufficient to cater to the mountain of vacationers, making the waiting time for your food, at least half an hour or more, if... More

Really too many similar type of ancient "kopitiam" at Ipoh. Food also similar, not very impressive. Weird thing to see in Ipoh, every chinese style kopitiam (coffee shop) is pack-filled with people . Food almost the same , coffee almost the same. Weathet always too hot, every one sweat like hell.. Still people willing to stay and eat. The worst... More

The ipoh noodles & cream caramel is a must have every trip back to my hubby's hometown. This time around we waited an hour for our noodles. It was worth the wait! The silky soft "hor fun" or rice noodles especially from ipoh is excellent plus the clear chicken broth was yummylicious! The egg custard is another hot selling dessert.... More

After hearing so many good reviews of this place, I decided to drop by for an early lunch while on the way to Penang. Mom and I got a table, sat down and we ordered an egg custard. It came almost immediately. We also ordered chicken and pork satay and that came immediately too. Mom went ahead to order a... More

I not sure what's the other must try at here. I only drop by here to try the egg custard and it is very delicious. I don't think you can find this food in Kl.

When people go Thean Chun, they will never miss the chicken bean sprout keuy teow and the pork satay. However, when mentioned about Thean Chun, what pop into my mind will be the beef noodle stall. I like the "ngau lam fun" serve with ipoh famous kuey teow. The beef soup aroma is nice, the beef tendon is soft and... More

After so long, it still fails to disappoint... still the best in town. Service will be slow, expect waiting time of half an hour and above but the quality will not let you down. This place also purportedly hails the best egg custard in town. Smooth creamy texture.

A simple bowl of chicken shreds kueh teow in Ipoh. Still the best in town. Authentic and not too complicated as compared to some other establishment in town. A simple bowl of thean chun noodle is a must to complete your Ipoh food journey. Thean chun serve thefamous ipoh chicken kueh teow soup and the custard. The satay's stall is... More
