When anyone speaks of white coffee in Ipoh, the one name that frequently pops out is Sin Yoon Loong which was opened in 1937 and said to be the creator of the much loved white coffee!
I could not stomach another cup of coffee after having one at Nam Heong (note, this was also after a heavy dim sum breakfast meal at Ming Court) but made it a point to visit on the third day, before we left for Cameron Highlands.
While waiting for the caffeine loaded beverage, we ordered the chee cheong fun! Even without the sweet sauce, the smooth texture and palatable taste appealed to us, although i also have to give credit to the fresh shallots that added to the fragrance and made for a varied texture.
Toasted bread was a failure in my opinion - the bread had a bad tasting staleness that could only be remedied (albeit barely) by the thick and aromatic custard kaya!
Finally, the white coffee! Honestly, an utter disappointment as it was way too bitter with a lingering tardiness! And i think they neglected to add sufficient condensed milk! Mom and dad, veterans of Southeast Asian coffee, had Kopi O in the same shop and expressed similar disappointment!
Put it this way, it was bad enough for me to proceed to another coffee shop to have another cuppa white coffee!
