    Get in line, and be ready to dig into a good collection of Ipoh culinary faves. The hor fun is al dente, the stock is rich in chicken and shrimp flavor, bean sprouts is plump and fresh; recommended.

    Be prepared to wait for approximately one hour, but you will be rewarded with the best original Ipoh Kuey Teow, smooth poached Chicken and crunchy Taugeh. Try the Caramel Custard and Pork Satay too.

    I love the choice of drinks at Ipoh (& Penang) kopitiams (cafes). Besides kopi & teh, u hv barley, chinchow, soya milk, lime juice, & ambra/ampulla (ambarella juice). Most come with iced option

    Great chicken and pork satay. Egg custards. And also the popiah + fried popiah. Don't forget to order their ice coffee. Will always come back for the food again. Great cheap food!

    The custard pudding was really good. Didnt expect a local coffee shop to have a dessert like this..satay and hor fun noodle is good as well and not forgetting the poh piah:)

    Their sliced chicken Ipoh Fun is made from soup of chicken and prawns. They extract the oil from the head and skin of the prawns and the oil goes into the soup. Not for those who don't take prawns!

    As rude as they may appear, those people from the Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun stall are actually very nice people. Speak politely and ask how long would the wait be, as it might take AT LEAST 30-45 minutes!

    Tried the chicken hor fun which is just expected with Ipoh quality. Crunchy bean sprouts, simple but tantalizing dishes of curry Mee and of course custard caramel. Delicious.

    Do try out the Egg Custard! Completely different from what we always find in Kuala Lumpur. Supposed to be my dessert, but became my starter instead while waiting for my Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun!

    The egg custard is good, you need to go to the back to order it or from the drinks lady. the tricycle stall has good hor fun bc of its broth. Satay is good. people here are rude cept for drinks lady.

    Frankly I think only the hor fun is excellent. The custard could have more egg content and the satay sauce can have more flavor, although both great too.

    If u prefer alfresco dining, there's an alleyway outside the cafe with tables & chairs laid out. Comfy & cool

    Go on and order everything. You can order food from next door and eat it in Thean Chun. Beware of the notorious long wait for hor fun if you pop in at the wrong time.

    Satay is served rather differently than the usual, where you order what you want. Most of the time, the owner would distribute an array of Satays to the table, and you shall pay only for what you eat!

    Must try their Caramel custard and Ipoh white coffee !! Remember to come early .. while stock last

    Satay is served, then remaining is recycled. So are the cucumbers and the peanut sauce you dipped your satay into. Bon apetit!

    Caramel custard is very smooth texture, syrup slightly too sweet. Overall is good, worth to visit again for their custard

    Best custard in the area. Allocate roughly 20mins to find a seat and 1 hour to get your bowl of hor fun.
