Dining at the Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh

One other thing I truly look forward to everytime I visit the Lost World of Tambun would be the…. food…


Yes.. there is no denying I have a love hate relationship with food… but when I am at LWOT, I tend to release the glutton in me, and all my decorum go down the drain also… this would be of course because Lost World of Tambun offers some of the best and affordable  food around in the Theme Park category…

Most of the other theme parks serve food which are over priced and some not even worth it… as it is unedible to gourmets… hahahah

Let me share with you 3 of my favorite places to eat…


Kukuntalu Hawkers
11:00am – 7:00pm


If you love local Malaysia food, be sure to head over to Kukuntalu Hawkers food court. This is where you will fibd some of the tastiest hawker food from around Ipoh and Malaysia…


My friends and I ordered their Nasi Kukus Ayam Goreng Berempah, Char Koay Teow, Mee Mamak and even Ipoh Chicken Rice and we loved it…


The prices are also not bad … equivalent to KL’s food court prices… I especially love the Mee Mamak and the Nasi Kukus Ayam Goreng Berempah which is also one of the most popular dishes there at Kukuntalu… the Char Koay Teow is not quite the Char Koay Teow I expected (whether Malay style which is more wet and eggy with prawns and cockles or dryer Chinese version with kuchai) but rather more Koay Teow goreng… and taste pretty good too…

Other then rhat they do have Roti John, Tom Yam noodles etc… so head over there for lunch…


Dulang Tea House
Opening hours : 12:00pm – 6:00pm


Dulang Tea House is a fascinating little kopitiam uniquely located at the corner side under part of a 400 million year old limestone cave and at the Tin Mine Valley…


It will definitely evoke nostalgic feelings for the older folks and fascination for the younger folks as you can find toast, coffee and eggs made the old-fashioned way here at the Dulang Tea House..

The Dulang Tea House is said to serve local favourites of those olden time tin workers….


So you will find a basic and simple menu offering locally roasted coffee (kopi kampung), roasted rice tea, roti bakar with soft boiled kampung eggs or snacks such biskut lutut or roti tumbuk.

I can never get enough of the Roasted Rice Tea (RM5) which has a smoky taste somewhat slightly like coffee


Toast lovers should try out the highly recommended Roti bakar (RM6 for 2 pcs), old style thick bread toasted without the conventional toaster… but instead, the old-fashioned way, over a charcoal fire….

One of the Specialty dish would be the roti bakar served with chicken curry (RM10)… The chicken curry is thick and fragrant, and it is such a pleasure dipping your toast into it and quickly carrying it to your mouth…

There is also the roti tumbuk (RM5) which comes served with a few old fashioned biscuits on a plate with two small plates of shaved coconut and brown sugar.. There is a small pestle and mortar on the table for you to then crush your biscuits and add in the dessicated coconut and brown sugar…. The verdict… orgasmicly delicious….


Lost World Ipoh Street
Opening hours : 11:00am – 10:00pm


This has to be my top favorite… Ipoh Street food street is a themed food street that serving a variety of local Ipoh street food, snacks, and desserts…


It is irresistible…and I never miss a visit here… you can find Ipoh specialties such as tau fu fah, Ipoh white coffee, Ipoh curry laksa.. etc…etc…

You can find tables with parasols along Ipoh Street…


The place operates on self service basis… so just order at counter, pay, collect your ticket andu collect your food….


Some of my personal favorites here I can never say no would be the Curry Mee, the Ipoh Grilled Squid, Tau Fu Fah, Mua Chee

The drinks are also equally good from the Ipoh White Coffee to the cold and refreshing fruit juices/smoothies to help to cool down – such as the Dragon fruit juice (RM10) or coconut shake (RM10)…

So there you have it..these are my favorite food places in the Lost World of Tambun.. so which is yours….
