Vegan Life Restaurant in Ipoh Garden advocates for not just only vegetarian, but also healthy eating using less oil, less salt and less sugar. The interior is literally green too and resonates with the ideology.

Cafe De Casalingo is a bit in the middle of nowhere. If you are on the way to KL via the Simpang Pulai toll, the Cafe might be a good pit stop as it’s on the way.

In fact, nothing is over RM 20 here.

If you are an Ipohan, you’ve probably come across “Gomok” at the corner shoplot while roaming about in new town. Gomok has a round chubby dude as its mascot and oh dear does that mean that we will become “gemuk”(fat) after eating at Gomok? Gemuk or not, Gomok is a fun addition to the handful of halal cafes in Ipoh, serving Malay and Western cuisine.
Food & Desire serves some out-of-the-norm creations on top of the typical cafe menu we see in Ipoh, such as porky fries, cereal killer, chocolate fondue and Penang white laksa to name a few.
