Thean Chun has been around for quite some time and is very popular among people living in Ipoh and coming to Ipoh. Of course with its location at Ipoh Old Town, where all the good and legendary foods are, it is to no wonder that it attracts customers all the time. The shop is historically old, and has been kept so because interior design is always secondary when it comes to specialised shops like this. Maintaining the old kopitiam style café, the shop is full of delicacies from its individual stalls.

However, those stalls are only the appetisers to the main event. The number one thing Thean Chun Coffee Shop is known for is their Kai See Hor Fun, which means Chicken Kuey Teow Soup. This classic dish has span many imitations by other shops, but why not enjoy it from the most popular and recognisable shop in town? Thean Chun Hor Fun is all about great pleasures in a bowl; the clear broth with the layer of oil that stems from the prawn heads that were boiled into making it, the thinner than normal kuey teow noodles, plus shredded poached chicken, fresh shrimps and chopped spring onions, you could down a serving in one go. For that extra heat and flavour, spice it up with the side of bird’s eye chillies in soy sauce.

These noodles sells out particularly fast on weekends and holidays so be early then. But if you’re there anyway, waiting for some time for your noodles is the expected norm. Which is why while waiting, give their stall dish a try. The Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun, Satay (especially the Pork Satay), and the Caramel Pudding are no less incredible at Thean Chun.
