Best 7 Places to Get Cooling Dessert in Ipoh
1. Tai Soo Ipoh Famous No.1 Dessert
Tai Soo serves up some of the best local desserts you’ll ever have in your lifetime- they don’t take their self-acclaimed title here lightly. We recommend you try the Soya Bean and Pandan Syrup Tau Fu Fah.
The Tau Fu Fah here holds quite the reputation the smooth top layer of bean curd molds itself within a steel bowl that also holds a serving of fragrant syrup that’s not too sweet. The soy drink is made fresh here every day and is the perfect drink to pair with your dessert!
Address: 24, Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri, Ipoh Town, 30300 Ipoh, Negeri Perak
Hours: 10.30 AM – 6.00 PM (Closed on Wednesday)
2. Hokkaido Ice Cream Puff
This dessert spot is the best place to visit on those hot and sunny days in Ipoh. The concept behind this delightful snack is in the name- ice cream in a puff! They make fresh batches of the crunchy scone-like buns on an hourly basis.
With more than ten ice cream options, you’re in for a treat. A crowd favourite is the Yam ice cream. The delicate purple scoop of this yummy delight sits in between two warm buns. The mix of hot and cold is truly a pleasure!
Address: 36, Jalan Yau Tet Shin, Taman Jubilee, 30300 Ipoh, Negeri Perak
Hours: 12.30 PM – 7.30 PM
Frozen yoghurt is always a great dessert option- not only do they taste good, they’re good for your gut too! At Mooghurt, you can either choose to pile on your own self-mastered creation with their self-service here or you could dine and have a feast with a few friends.
We recommend the CrossyChocoBerry- a hollowed-out croissant filled to the brim with chocolate frozen yoghurt and sprinkled with a generous handful of M n Ms, Oreos and chocolate syrup. This beautiful chocolatey serving is made better with fresh sliced strawberries- always the perfect partner with chocolate!
Address: 81, Jalan Raja Ekram, Kampung Jawa, 30300 Ipoh, Negeri Perak
Hours: 12.00 PM – 11.00 PM
4. Funny Mountain Soya Beancurd
This store has quite the funny concept (pun intended)- they have no dining space, and they serve only three desserts here- Tau Fu Fah, Ais Kacang Soya and Ais Lengkong. Despite the limited menu options, people come by the bus load here. This dessert shop is a famous tourist spot in Ipoh.
We recommend you try all three items! The Bean curd in the Tau Fu Fah is silky and wobbly- not too sweet as well! The Iced Soya Drink is perfect on hot days while the Ais Lekong is a sweet drink with slippery green jellies to slurp on. Enjoy!
Address: 50, Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri, Taman Jubilee, 30300 Ipoh, Negeri Perak
Hours: 11.00 AM – 4.00 PM
5. Bella Zia Gelato
The owner of the gelato store was trained in Italy, and you’ll be in for a treat! We hear great things of the Sicilian Pistachio- a cold serving of creamy (both from the milk and the nuts) is excellent for when you’re feeling indulgent. The slight tinge of green to this dessert also packs in crushed pistachio bits for an added crunch.
You can opt for your gelato to be served in a regular bowl but- where’s the fun in that? We recommend you get your gelato piped onto a doughnut or better yet with a side of freshly baked muffins.
Address: 23 (Front Portion, Jalan Sultan Iskandar, 30000 Ipoh, Negeri Perak
Hours: 11.00 AM – 9.00 PM
6. Crazy Ice-Cream & Salad House
We know how it sounds- ice cream and salad in one sentence? Surprising to say the least- but we promise you’ll love this dessert spot. They serve an equal amount of ice cream options to their main meals.
Choose your favourite flavour from the ice cream list and then pick the menu item you’d like your cold dessert to be served in. We recommend ‘C’- non-descript in the menu but what you’ll get is a watermelon bowl, three scoops of ice cream, chocolate syrup and crispy biscuits on the top.
Address: 39, Persiaran Greenhill, Kampung Jawa, 30450 Ipoh, Negeri Perak
Hours: 10.30 AM – 11.00 PM (Closed on Monday)
7. Mykori Dessert Café
This dessert chain store is the expert on shaved ice treats and fish-shaped cakes. Try the ChocOreo Kakigori for a bowl of shaved ice drenched in fresh milk topped with- you guessed it- Oreo pieces and chocolate syrup.
Don’t miss out on their Taiyaki Ice Cream- a soft fish-shaped caked filled with an ice cream if your choice. Yum!
Address: B-G-1, Soho Ipoh, Jalan Sultan Iskandar, 30000 Ipoh, Negeri Perak
Hours: 2.00 PM – 11.00 PM
