————————————————————

Nam Heong Old Town White Cafe is a famous kopitiam (aka coffee shop) located at Ipoh’s old town.

People usually have quick lunch or tea break here. Getting a parking space is kinda hard and getting a table at Nam Heong is hard too. The most important factor you must possess while looking for food in Ipoh is patience.

Nam Heong’s white coffee is famous in Ipoh – due to its unique flavour.

The taste of the food is good and the portion is reasonable with the price. Order Char Kuey Teow and Chee Cheong Fun with mushroom gravy.

There are more variety of food here but I didn’t take extra orders.

On the same road itself, there’s another kopitiam called Kedai Kopi CT where you can have red bean soup for dessert.

Kinda concentrated in my opinion, if you order without ice. Addition of ice should make it more diluted and obviously colder.

It’s not hard to find this place in Ipoh town. There’s a landmark which can be easily spotted once you reach the town area. The landmark is a 20-storey flat – Kinta Height Flat. Both Nam Heong and CT coffee shops are located just around it.

  1. Ahhh…Ipoh food. My recent trip was fruitful too as I manage to "catch" most of the good food.. "Shu Kuek Tai" liu and Ngao Choi Kai.. U must not missed too :) Yea, agree that Nam Heong or Kong Heng's white coffee still seems to be best, but I havent been there for time.. thinking of my next Ipoh trip already now! :P

  2. To be honest, I also don't know how people can take such nice photos when they are eating! I have a DSLR too but I always fail to do that because I would concentrate on food instead!

    I might be going for a road trip with my friend soon so i might consider stopping by! thank you for recommending!

    And omg..it's only your 100th post and look at how your blog has flared! *envy*

  3. i used to snap snap snap photos on food before makan, during makan and after makan.

    and i don't do it anymore now.

    i find myself annoying.

  4. Haha :D You have broken your promise o. Anyway congrates on the 100th posts. Ouh…so you are from Ipoh lar. The only thing I wanna try in Ipoh is the White Coffee. :D

  5. First thing I thought was "white coffee"? Never heard of that.
    Anyway, interesting post though I agree with your initial awkwardness since I wouldn't go to a restaurant with a camera just to take pictures of the food to post in a blog. :P
    Hell, I don't feel fine even taking a camera to the kitchen here at home!

  6. Wait till you stay in KL for a long time then you will think of Ipoh food all the time! Gosh, I really missed the Chee Vheong Fun there. The KL ones make me sick.

  15. Hi Ken,

    I'm technoraX.
    I've started a new tech blog. I have a idea of forming a blogger group and exchanging links between us. But, it seems to be difficult. But, I have a new idea. I can't type all here. so, please have a look in my page. The post about "free backlinks for your site" is in my home page.

    have a look at that post..thanks..have a nice day

  16. kenwooi,

    No, it's not my point. You don't have to put those images. Just copy the text links in the list there..copy and paste.. and post them in a post. like this

    http://Yourname.blogspot.com/increase-your-backlinks-here.html<—–this could be anything..

    then you always update that list..many will be added to my list in my blog and they will update the list also.

    for example look at this Rethnaraj V2's post..Yes it is my site also. but, i mean for example..

    Rethnaraj v2 example

    Of course you just put those images if you want..but not neccessary. just for spreading about it…

    like that i will update the list in my both blogs…

    hope you understand..it's a free backlink for your site…

  18. Ohh…. makes me eager to try all the food there … and perhaps go Teluk Intan to eat their chee cheung fun too? Maybe Ipoh also got…

  19. Heyy.. You made me miss the food in Ipoh :S I visited Ipoh like urm, two years back? I miss their 'heong peng' and also there is this shop that has nice 'roti' to eat. The 'kaya' is really good! I never failed to ask my friend (who is from Ipoh) to help me buy some back :D :D

  20. Yeah..i know this nam heong is just beside of this 20Flats.

    i blog that flat before.which is consider one of the landmark in old town in ipoh

  21. omg i see chee cheong fun. i mis chee cheong fun n there is no chee cheong fun around for a few hundred km

  22. Hey, I found your blog in bloggerunited and found this post is interesting. I am a food lover also.. Hehe… Those Ipoh foods look Nice man. By the way, I'm from Sabah, staying in KL now.

  23. Congrats on your 100th post!

    The food looks good! But I hate to find parking and rush with others to get a table : )

  24. The Nam Heong is my favourite kopitiam in Ipoh. The white coffee is like the best. Great food and great coffee..miss that place. Definitely beats the old town that's spawning everywhere like mushrooms in the klang valley. Quality not quantity.

  25. D*MN!! reading this post while i'm being hungry in the office!! made me quickly go and grab an apple to munch~~

  26. wa what a long list of comments here! I’ve to scroll all the way down .. XD

    I just tried the coffee and food at Nam Heong a couple of weeks ago when I was in Ipoh.. it was the first time we managed to get seats there though I went Ipoh many times! What a hot spot! I enjoyed the coffee and the dim sum, especially the egg tarts! :D

    BTW, the coffee shop opps Nam Heong is equally good too, like their custards!
