Sun Marpoh Popular Cantonese Family Restaurant in Ipoh 孖宝海鲜饭店

Sun Marpoh Popular Cantonese Family Restaurant in Ipoh 孖宝海鲜饭店

It was the last day of our 3 day Ipoh foodie trip and I suggested that we could try an old school family type restaurant after eating so much street food and kopitiam food. Our Ipoh buddy Gilbert dialled a few of his favourites but it was full house everywhere. He finally found an available table at Sun Marpoh 孖宝海鲜饭店 which we quickly grabbed without much ado.

We were glad we grabbed the booking as the two shop lot restaurant was packed to the rafters when we arrived. Restoran Sun Marpoh 孖宝海鲜饭店 has been around for nearly 30 years and is a household name in Ipoh.

Large menu, so we let Gilbert the local do the orders 😄

The fish was meaty, tender and sweet with underlying earthiness well masked by robust sour, sweet savoury and sharp spiciness from the pool of sloshy sauce and raw vegetable toppings.

Information for you 👍 From the few dishes we tried, the ingredients were fresh, and the dishes well executed. The flavours were on the robust assertive side, making them very appetising with plain white rice. Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was full of buzz as expected of informal family dining places in Malaysia.

There are many more dishes I would love to try at Sun Marpoh. Next visit, we shall try Sun Marpoh's 印尼虾煲 Indonesian style prawn in claypot, 招牌吊片 Fried Cuttlefish.
