1. Kedai Kopi Sin Yoon Long
There’s just simply no way to wake up in Ipoh and not experience the Ipoh breakfast style. Catered specifically to the early birds (as they open as early as 6am), this is the best place to experience having runny eggs on toast with Ipoh-style iced coffee or white coffee, kaya and butter toast and half-boiled eggs. Definitely give this restaurant a go if you’re in Ipoh.

3. Lim Ko Pi
For those of you who prefer a little sleep in before you have your breakfast, make your way to Lim Ko Pi – mostly because they only start operating at 8:30 am but we promise you that the quality of their food makes up for the late operating hours. What we like about this place is the fact that it doesn’t just serve the typical Ipoh-style breakfast menu but you can also get a more typical Malaysian dish like Nasi lemak and cendol if you like cendol in the morning that is.

5. Restoran Choong Kee Pokok Besar
Fun fact: this restaurant is located underneath a huge, unique tree which is where it gets its name from. Even better fact: This restaurant serves you all the really good Ipoh dishes so early in the morning.

For those of you who are visiting Ipoh for the first time, you definitely have to have breakfast here at least once to understand why this old establishment is still standing.
