Located in the heart of Ipoh old town, Kong Heng Restaurant, or fondly called Kong Heng Char Set by the locals, is one of the best restaurants that sells excellent food in town. This restaurant has been around for centuries and it is a favourite spot for breakfast for Ipohan. The shop is usually busy and crowded on weekends as Ipohan outside Ipoh will be back to patronize this shop. One word of advice from us: Come early or you'll have trouble looking for tables.A step into the shop is like trav
A step into the shop is like travelling back in the past. The interior setting has changed little. The furniture within the shops can be dated back to the 50s and 60s era. While OLDTOWN Kopitiam is set with the designer's version of nostalgic and charming antique round marble table and chair, Kong Heng Restaurant has the authentic and historic sets of tables and chairs which are inherited generation after generation. – Copied and edited from Ipohtown (http://ipohtown.blogspot.com/) My boyfriend ordered 10 sticks of Chicken Satay and 10 sticks of Pork Satay that cost us a total of RM14 only. Chicken Satay is usually softer than Pork Satay, my experience with those at Kedai Kopi Kong Heng was nevertheless different. Surprisingly, the tenderness was almost similar, that at one moment we could hardly differentiate them until we had a few other sticks to finally decide on which was which.
From the photos above, I couldn't differentiate them either. Some may prefer to eat satay with cucumbers and spicy peanut sauce, while I always prefer to have satay without any of them. I support originality! Still, I gave the sauce a try so that my experience with these satays would not go to waste. I would prefer to have the satays alone, but the sauce was quite okay after all. Worth a try!
