Just 4 km or 9 minutes drive from Taman Jubilee to Buntong is the birthplace of Kampung Kacang Puteh in Ipoh.
Kampung Kacang Puteh (also known as Kampung Kacang Putih) is famed for its traditional Indian snacks: nuts, murukku, tapioca chips, other types of cookies, etc. The Indian snacks here are directly from the manufacturers. Hence, the snacks are fresher, more traditional, and supposedly the cheapest in Malaysia. Furthermore, the business owners in Kacang Puteh are directly involved in the production to maintain quality and traditional values.
