Long wait for ipoh noodles

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... read 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

Rustic, old-school cafe serves really smooth hor fun. Satay was also not bad. Expect a decently large crowd

No one would like to miss the good hawker food at Thean Chun. If you want to savor the pork satay, you have to go early because the specialty, intestine satay, won't wait for you. There are still so many good dishes, the egg custard, popiah, the chicken noodle and the bean sprout as well. The beef noodle is just... More

A definite kopitiam to visit for these two dishes as mentioned. Chicken shreds hor fun is very good, although in a short span of time the price has increased from RM3.50 to now RM5 per bowl. Custard is amazing as usual. Must eat it while it is still cold. Not recommended for their white coffee, too watery in my opinion.... More
