Kampung Kacang Puteh in Ipoh

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.

How to get there

Address: Laluan Sungai Pari, 2, Laluan Sungai Pari 19, Buntong, 30100 Ipoh, Perak

Getting to Kampung Kacang Puteh is fairly simple, either you take a taxi or Grab.

Since we hired a van, it was a smooth ride to the kampung from Restoran Thean Chun near the Concubine Lane. Scroll below to watch a YouTube Short of how we spent our day in Ipoh – visiting 10 places in the process.

Kampung Kacang Puteh

The entrance to the kampung (village) is easily recognisable by the arch with the greetings TERIMA KASIH KAMPUNG KACANG PUTEH.

We stopped at the first cross junction where 3 popular kacang puteh shops are located. There’s CTS Kacang Puteh Sdn Bhd which is easily recognisable by it’s green exterior. Then there’s D.N.S FOOD which is directly opposite CTS. Then, Enak & Rangup is directly opposite D.N.S.

Ipoh’s Peanut Candy Shop – Kedai Biskut dan Kek Sin Weng Fai

Welcome to Ipoh’s famous peanut candy shop. Along Jalan Yau Tet Shin in Taman Jubilee, you can find the main shop for the famous “Sin Weng Fai” peanut candy.

How to get there

Address: 69 & 69A, Jalan Yau Tet Shin, Taman Jubilee, 30300 Ipoh, Perak

Getting around Ipoh is fairly simple; either you take the bus, take a taxi, Grab, or walk.

If you’re driving along the main road, Jalan Raja Ekram or Jalan Yau Tet Shin itself, you’ll easily spot the corner maroon shop.

After our lunch at Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong, we walked down to the other end of the road.

Kedai Biskut Dan Kek Sin Weng Fai Peanut Candy Shop 

The shop consists of 2 shop lots split into 2 sections. 

The outer section, located at the corner lot, is where the peanut candy is freshly packed in front of customers before payment. People would queue and the line can stretch all the way to the back of the block. The queue can be as long as 30 to 40 minutes. 

When it’s your turn to pay and collect the peanut candy, each customer is limited to a few number of packs.

Then, the inner section is where they also sell other pastries such as kaya puffs, their signature wedding cakes, heong peah, chips, cookies, etc.
