6. V Life
Open from brunch to dinner (and private events too):
V Life certainly does not lack ambiance! It’s quiet, spacious and well-lit with many natural elements! Including a wall with a hydroponic set up for their homegrown salad!
The plant-based meat and affordable menu has enough options for a full course meal! Mostly western with some Asian classics as well. Their best sellers are the nasi lemak and Hainanese chicken rice!
Beverages include coffee, tea, or soda. Try their genmaicha latte for a unique flavor (roasted brown rice with green tea)! Of their cakes, their tiramisu is a popular hit!
Home Recipe has a large selection of dishes in their menu.
Moderately priced food in a pleasant environment.
- Claypot noodles
- Fried stinky toufu
- Fried dumpings
- Fish head noodles
- Green curry noodles
- Tom yam fried rice
- Chicken chop with mushroom sauce
As the name suggests, they specialize in vegetarian burgers! And mock chicken drumsticks that are similar to the real thing!
The thing is though, there is a long waiting time (1 to 2 hours) and it’s best that you order online through their Facebook or call their phone number before you go!
Not just for good bubble tea:
18CTEA has a very agreeable environment for having affordable vegetarian pasta and a cup of milk tea to accompany it.
Most bubble tea shops in Malaysia don’t normally serve meals, let alone vegetarian ones!
Note: The tea comes in those disposable plastic cups with plastic straws.
Recommended dishes: Carbonara spaghetti
Environment here may be lacking but you can get a decently priced healthy vegetarian meal here!
Recommended dishes: Vegetarian shark fin soup
Another place to get cheap and delicious vegetarian meals in a simple but clean setting!
You can choose the size of your dishes – small or large.
Note: Hope you’re not too hungry because their serving times are not the fastest!
Recommended dishes: Assam fried fish, Fried Sang Mee
Delicious and authentic Indian food in a posh environment! It’s not all vegetarian though. Choose from their ala carte menu – they have many vegetarian options!
They serve mocktails as well.
Note: Slightly pricey and service can be slow.
- Naan basket
- Mango Kulfi
- Palak Paneer
Appearance-wise, this restaurant resembles many other Chinese restaurants in Ipoh:
They serve palatable Chinese vegetarian dishes including noodles! Reasonably priced. Huge portions!
- Call them first if you plan to have dinner there.

Recommended dishes: Assam fish or other fake meat dishes
If you’ve never tried this Hakka vegetarian dish before, now’s your chance!
The unmistakable green soup that accompanies a bowl of rice is a blended and boiled concoction of Thai basil, mint, coriander leaves and guava shoots.
It’s slightly bitter and you will either love it or hate it! Other ingredients are the toppings on the rice – these could be bits of tofu, peanuts, cut beans, spinach, etc.
There’s one very acclaimed food stall (Jeram Lui Cha) in Ipoh Garden South (Taman Ipoh Selatan) that specializes in this distinct dish:
The owner is an elderly man and his son has another hawker stall (Jeram Wah Chai Lui Cha) opposite Maxis center in Greentown Ipoh that also sells lui cha (or lei cha).
But loyal patrons will insist that the father’s lui cha is still the best!
PS: I’m fully aware that a food stall may not qualify as a restaurant! But this one is exceptionally good.
