Think of food in Ipoh and you think of Ipoh chicken rice, char kway teo, Ipoh hor fun, salt baked chicken and all those great hawker food favourites ….. Think again!
Julie Song opened Indulgence Living & Restaurant which is by far the best western restaurant and boutique hotel in Ipoh, and the food can certainly challenge many of the top restaurants in KL.
Indulgence Living & Restaurant is located in a wonderful old bungalow house designed and personally fitted out by Julie. She is also at the helm in the kitchen producing one of the most interesting and unique menus I have seen for a long time with an extremely interesting blend of Western-Asian dishes.
Accommodation in the hotel comprises 7 themed rooms all nicely appointed and modernized. We stayed in the “Italian” theme room called Giulianna, others include Moroccan, English Country, Thai, Contemporary and Chinoisserie.
Room rates are premium but certainly worth the money for the level of quality and comfort. Service at Indulgence Living is excellent, no doubt led by Julie’s attention to detail and flair for understanding what the sophisticated traveller desires.
A highly recommended venue and one I will return to soon and worth the 200km drive from KL.
