This weekend, we decided to take a short getaway weekend to Taiping, Perak.

Wifey was raised in Taiping. Getaway trip Taiping would be a great weekend since she knows the best place to eat!

After checked in @ Bukit Merah Laketown Resort, we went to this Doli Restaurant. Avoiding lunch hour. (We stopped for lunch at Sungai Perak R&R, Ikan Patin masak lemak tempoyak. Yup!!)

If you are looking for Char Kuey Teow, this is not the place!

Restoran Doli famous for their Fried Kuey Teow. Special Fried Kuey Teow will cost you about Rm8.50. What is their secret? They fried the Kuey Teow using charcoal fire.

Taiping's branch only offer table for 8 persons. If you are coming with less number, prepare to share table with other guests. Thats the let down factor for Doli. Standing waiting for table will be a common situation during peak or off peak hours.

Food at Taiping, Perak

Beside that dining @ Doli restaurant, Taiping offer few other type of food that you could try.

Among them are:

Mee Udang - Kuala Sepetang, Port Weld
Salleh Stall or Warung Mak Teh

Cendol Bismillah

Yong Tau Foo Bomba
Got its name from the location itself. Situated next to Balai Bomba Taiping, the food court offers more than five stalls selling the yong tau foo. The best stall? I still believe it all taste about the same. Dont forget to add the giant sotong!

Mihun Sup RM1
The name represent the price. Good one! Selling mihun or bee hoon sup for RM1. Also selling satay about 15cent per stick. Portion? Well, you will get how much you pay for right?
