Best Ice Kacang in Ipoh

Written by Updated ago

Ice kacang is also known as “Ais Batu Campur” or by its local acronym - “ABC”, and was originally served as a mound of shaved ice lavished with a concoction of red beans, grass jelly, roasted peanuts, coated with evaporated milk, spoonfuls of gula Melaka (palm sugar), rosewater syrup and sweet corn puree. While the traditional ones are still around, in today’s modern world, this icy saccharine-like dessert has turned into a flamboyant dessert with luscious toppings and ingredients ranging from assorted fruit flavours to neon-coloured syrups and basil seeds. More often than not, this dessert is found at roadside stalls, among a cluster of hawkers at a food court, and restaurants. Given the sweltering heat from our unpredictable weather, nothing pleases your throat like a bowl of ice kacang. In the meantime, here is a list of the best ice kacang in Ipoh, served traditionally or with modern adaptations.

    Restoran Tai Wo Yuan

    Restoran Tai Wo Yuan is known mostly for its rojak and refreshing “Wan Tau Long“ (yellow jelly) dessert. With more than three decades of experiences, this modest eatery is swiftly earning a following here. Besides the yellow jelly, the sweet and icy cold classic Ice Kacang here makes a perfect quick energy fix when the hot weather is out against you. Apart from the common ingredients that are used in crafting this bowl of dessert, kidney beans, strands of green pea like-shaped pandan and punch-white coloured vermicelli, similar to the ones we see in a Nyonya cendol and a tai bak dessert is served in this bowl.
