Ipoh Funny Mountain Soya Bean & Tau Fu Fah

Ipoh Funny Mountain Soya Bean & Tau Fu Fah

Another famous Ipoh delicacy is none other than the soya bean drink and tau fu fah (soya bean curd).

Well, you can get them from… Funny Mountain!

Funnily enough, there’s nothing funny about this well-known outlet. After 60 years (and still counting) of business, they must be the master of both soya bean drink and tau fu fah.

Therefore, Funny Mountain in Ipoh is a top attraction to satisfy the taste buds.

Business starts everyday from 10.30am in the morning, up till when the supplies get depleted for the day. So, it’s advisable to drop by as early as possible. :)

Typically on a weekend, the queue can be overwhelming – with tourists from tour buses and visitors from in and out of town.

Not forgetting cars queuing along the road for a “drive-through” service. Or you could also call that… Drink ‘n Go.

Funny Mountain serves 3 main specialties – Soya Bean Milk, Grass Jelly (Cincau) and Soya Bean Curd (Tau Fu Fa).

Served fresh from the containers, they are scooped and prepared as ordered.

At RM0.80 for both a cup of soya bean drink and a bowl of tau fu fah, they are considered cheap – but perhaps not enough to savour since the portion could be slightly small.

Here’s a cup of soya bean drink…

Served cold – it’s really refreshing as Ipoh can be hot sometimes.

Soya Cincau (mixture of soya bean milk and grass jelly) is another favourite as well…

It’s fun to have that extra munch with the grass jelly. :)

And here’s the bowl of smooth savory tau fu fah…

The portion is quite small, but certainly proportional to the 80 cents price tag. Get another bowl if you can’t get enough of it.

So yeah – when you think of soya bean or tau fu fah in Ipoh, Funny Mountain is definitely the place to go.

The outlet is actually so small that seats are pretty limited. Customers normally takeaway, or drink/eat immediately on the spot.

  1. I remember I went for this “Drink and Go” service and I paid for 5 of my friends. I gave RM 20 (cos i thought its about that price), then the person gave me back RM 10 and still got extra change, i was so shocked that the tau fu fah can be soooooo cheap! LOL!

  2. Omg I have been there once the queue was crazy. But totally worth it! Super heavenly!!!!! The drinks come in 200ml bottles too :D But the taufufah seriously comes in like only a quarter of the bowl lor wtf

  3. Was in Ipoh last weekend. Heard ’bout this place & went there to have a tau fu fah, sadly, it’s finished!…

    Shoulda know ’bout the right time next time in Ipoh…

  4. I personally would prefer a stall ” Woon Kee” which is a side road off Jalan Yang kalsom ! Can’t remember he street but nearby the church and public bank ! The Soya bean is shiokingly smooth
