Ipoh Kopitiam  review image

Ipoh Kopitiam

Ipoh Kopitiam in Alhambra is one of the few restaurants in LA serving traditional Malaysian cuisine. While the menu is filled with excellent versions of beef rendang, kaya toast, and roti canai (made with many ingredients imported from Malaysia), the standout dish is the Singapore-style Hainese chicken rice. The chicken itself has been poached to soft-and-chewy perfection with strong notes of ginger and garlic in each bite. The three dipping sauces on the side (chili, soy, and garlic) are equally delicious and should be used liberally throughout the meal.
