Ipoh Sedap

Breakfasts during weekends are always "Where to eat?". So coming to Restoran Ipoh Sedap was a refreshing change. I had not even heard of this place before. I guess it is pretty new.

Ipoh Sedap (食好料) is located on Jalan SS2/60 in Petaling Jaya, at the end of a row of shops, just next to the SS2 police station. As far as I could remember this was the shop where I used to buy "bak kua" (BBQ pork slices - 切片豬肉乾). 

The shop is apparently an off-shoot of a famous makan place in Ipoh. All the food they serve here - yong tau fu (釀豆腐), sar hor fun (沙河粉), chee cheong fun (猪肠粉), fish balls, hakka noodles, even the stubby bean sprouts - are apparently delivered fresh from Ipoh everyday.

The place is small with air-conditioning that struggle to keep cool. It was kind of congested. Perhaps it was because it was full house on the Sunday morning that bespoke its popularity.

At the front of the shop was the "kitchen" where they prepare the noodles.

And the self-pick yong tau fu (釀豆腐) counter that reminded me so much of the similar stall at the Ipoh hawkers under the trees in Pasir Pinji.

This was their signature Hor Hee (河嘻) noodles. It was basically fish ball noodles. I have no idea why they call it Hor Hee in Ipoh, and what the words really mean. It was served with springy fish ball and slices of fish cake.

My bowl of curry noodles was no where near what I had tasted in Ipoh. They serve it with some mint leaves, and I think that was where the similarity ended. Still it was not so bad. My only complaint was the thick layer of oil floating at the top.

The chee cheong fun (猪肠粉) was really quite good. It had some nice dried shrimps in it. It was served with chilli and sweet sauces as well as some pickled green chilli. The sesame seeds completed the dish.

The hakka noodles served with minced pork was apparently quite good.

So was the sar hor fun (沙河粉). If indeed it was delivered fresh from Ipoh, it is a must try, for Ipoh sar hor fun is second to none. Notice the stubby bean sprouts. Only in Ipoh do we find such bean sprouts.

We had a good variety of yong tau fu. Some in soup...

And some crispy and aromatic.

Finally, this bowl of delightful meat balls and sea weeds.

It was a big breakfast for 6 of us. And worthwhile too. We will definitely return. One more choice to "Where to eat?".


  1. My family loves this place. Try the 'lo sue fun' served same way, dry, instead of sar hor fun. Must try is the White Coffee - SO GOOD! So is their home made soy bean drink.

  2. Thanks for your great review, Restoran SS2 always deliver you the fresh and nice food in steamboat buffet style. Please do see our 8TV recommendation at
