LC n LY cafe is not located in your usual prime areas in Ipoh like old town, but in the Falim industrial area on the way to Menglembu. Thanks to that, the food here is decently priced and nett-priced. The menu consists of a good selection of local and western food; it’s the typical kind of Ipoh cafe menus before the advent of boutique cafes.
I like the new idea of having pink ink written on the mirrors as menu instead of the chalkboard menu which is almost becoming a pre-requisite for any new cafes.
I’ve had too much pasta and chicken chops lately so I went for the Fried Rice with XO sauce (RM 10.50). It was a good stir-fry with sausage slices, diced vegetables and it had an intense “wok hei”; like the one you would get as the last course at a wedding dinner from a good Chinese restaurant.
I had an extra bit of bliss when I drank my Mocha (RM 7.90) because of a very simple reason – it was served in a coffee cup much larger than the usual ones I have encountered, so I could enjoy the lingering smell and foamy brew a little longer.
The cafe’s interior is simple but refreshing. New York and Paris seem to be their favorite cities.
Food is pretty affordable here with western meals mostly in the range of RM 9.90 – RM 20.90 with some premium dishes like cod-fish at RM 58.90; fried noodles (you can choose any kind) and fried rice are in the range of RM 7.50 to RM 13.90.
Coffee is from RM 4.90 to RM 7.90. A few of them are at RM 15.90, confusingly named LC N LY Coffee, LCLY Coffee, LC Coffee and LY Coffee. It turned out that these coffee consist of a bit of alcohol like whisky, brandy, etc – but I don’t know which one is which – so it’s something I look forward to try in the next visit.
