Every Ipoh Tourist goes to Chang Jiang White Coffee 長江白咖啡 @ Jalan Windsor

Every Ipoh Tourist goes to Chang Jiang White Coffee @ Jalan Windsor

Every time I come to Ipoh, my local buddies will bring me to Chang Jiang White Coffee 長江白咖啡 at Jalan Windsor without fail. I had procrastinated writing about it because Chang Jiang really doesn't need any more introduction - too famous liao lah. Ask any Ipohite for Ipoh White Coffee recommendation and Chang Jiang is bound to be mentioned (along with Nam Heong and Sin Yun Loong in the same breath).

My first taste of Chang Jiang's Ipoh white coffee was some two decades ago. We were driving around town looking out for nice food the old way (which is still my preferred way). Pulled up at this dingy coffee shop and had the best white coffee we ever had. We had been back regularly ever since at this old shop. 

One of the siblings subsequently opened Chang Jiang White Coffee at Jalan Windsor in 2014. The Jalan Windsor shop is a hipster type cafe while the original Chang Jiang at Jalan Pasir Puteh (now renamed 江氏白咖啡 in Chinese) still retained the old rustic kopitiam charm.

Chang Jiang White Coffee cafe at Jalan Windsor is in a repurposed 1960s vintage single storey bungalow. Parking can be very tight but patience is usually rewarded with a slot 😄

The patio / verandah outside is a nice place to chill.

It is air conditioned inside and the decor retains the rustic charm of old kopitiams with small round marble top tables, folding chairs, large hanging mirrors, glass window louvres, signboard with hand carved gold painted calligraphy etc.

Chang Jiang White Coffee cafe is often full house and seating is by queue number 😂 But, waiting time is usually short as customers come and go briskly.

Despite the crowds, processes are well oiled at Chang Jiang - we never had missed or mixed up orders, nor unduly long waits for our food and drinks during the dozen times we were here before (since 2017).

I like the old school look of this menu (though old school kopitiams have no menus 😄 ).

The frothy Ipoh white coffee is black coffee with condensed milk and evaporated milk. The black coffee has smooth round body which is further thicken with the two types of (tinned) milk. On the taste buds the coffee was sweet from the milk with a subtle underlying coffee bitterness. Together with the coffee aroma, Ipoh white coffee can be an addictive brew.

My preferred way of drinking Ipoh white coffee is kopi O siew tim 少甜 which is known as kopi O siew dai in Singapore. Either way, it is coffee with less sugar and no milk. I like the smooth round body and well balanced sweet bitterness with nice coffee aroma.

Nanyang kopi and kaya (coconut milk and egg jam) butter toast is the perfect pair.

There's also the usual soft boiled eggs as well as wanton mee, fried wantons, braised chicken feet and even macaroni soup.
