Larut Matang Food Court

Food Hall in Taiping

Busiest and best at lunch, this gritty court is half Chinese and half Malay. Look out for local favourite Omar's Popiah stall, where you can chomp on large rolls of crisp veggies wrapped in a wheat pancake.

Other staples sizzled up here are satay, oyster omelette and the local twist on char kway teow (fried noodles with fish balls).
