Last month, after our trip to Cameron, we stopped in Kong Heng, Ipoh for Horfan and White Coffee. It was nice and fantastic. However, Chong, who is originate from Ipoh told me that I had yet drink the best coffee in Ipoh.
I finally had the chance to taste some good coffee on the day 15 of CNY, when we traveled there for an important visit.
This shop Sun Yuan Foong is located just opposite Ipoh Old Town Kopitiam. And I was told that Sun Yuan Foong has far longer history than the opposite Old Town Kopitiam. No wonder I never thought Ipoh Old Town Kopitiam offer good coffee, which is no way close to my favorite Kemaman Kopitiam.
I ordered the original Kopi-O and Special Toasted Bread with Half Boiled Egg. We had also some other side orders (just some normal foods) like cheong fan and normal toasted bread.
I would say I like the Kopi-O just like I did for the Kemaman Kopitiam. Strong but not thick. Not too sweet. Aroma was just great! I finally confirm that Ipoh really serve good traditional coffee.
The bread I had was very special. It was toasted hot and spread with butter, and it served with half boiled egg on top of it. I could not find a particular words to describe the taste, or feeling eating this. Even before I ate it, its appearance was beautiful. Not that kind of food that decorated finely, but with just plain sweet yellow, orange color egg as a topping, I just love the way it presented to me.
The skill of preparing those egg was not simple. I could imagine how accurate the timing and temperature to prepare such nicely cook egg.
