Nestled in the heart of Sydney's CDB, you can find IPOH On York, which is a Malaysian restaurant conveniently located at the lower ground of York Street. When I first saw the entrance, I wouldn't have expected that this place turned out to occupy a large seating area. Venturing into the place, the interior is simply designed with spacious dining area surrounded by wooden tables and chairs.
I have visited this place for a few times; I found that the portions of the dishes were generous judging from the price they charged. And the food was overall pretty good.
Different options for Nasi Goreng are on offer at varied prices; you can choose vegetables, beef/chicken ($12), or prawn/seafood ($13). I picked the veggie option ($11). The dish was nicely presented in a mini wok; delicious and full of flavor.
On another occasion, I tried the IPOH Hor Fun ($10), a bowl of soup noodles served in a clear chicken and prawn broth with shedded chicken, prawns, bean sprouts and spring onions. The food was served fairly quickly and the flavour was simply well-blended.
The Hainanese Chicken Rice ($11) contains boneless poached chicken with steam rice cooked in chicken broth and served with vegetable soup. To me, this was the least favoured one among the three dishes that I had tried; I was expecting the chicken rice served in a stronger flavour. Saying that taste was just a personal preference only.
Overall, this eating place offers good value for money - clean seating with quick service and delicious food.
