    Kafe Panglima Dua Lima Good Old Town Ipoh Coffee

    The old town of Ipoh is known as one of Malaysia’s best coffee producers. The “Old Town” coffee brand is a popular present for visitors coming from Malaysia. It is one of my favorite instant coffee due to its sharp strong yet rich flavor. Recently, I found myself back in Ipoh for a fam tour. While strolling through one of the famed concubine lanes in Ipoh, we chanced upon Panglima Dua Lima. A charming little cafe housed in an old shophouse serving freshly prepare Ipoh white coffee.

    Cafe Lounge 85:  Finding good coffee and great views in Abatan

    Happyfoodies has been on the road recently and traveling through towns we normally pass through on the way to Bontoc and Sagada brought some surprises to us.  One of these is finding a place to have good coffee in Abatan, some 80 or so kilometers away from Baguio.  Billeted at Garden Breeze in Bangad, we wanted to find out what else is out there, attractions- and food-wise, so we walked along the town center.  After a hearty lunch of beef broccoli and soup at Kadan-Tom, we decided to find out if there’s a place where we can grab a cup of coffee and some dessert.  Maybe it was a stroke of serendipity that we found Cafe Lounge 85 at the fringe of the town center where the coffee along with the view gave us a pleasant surprise.

    I have a friend who’s known as the “Sound Check Guy”. He’s musically inclined and decided to live in La Union for good finding it felt more home to him. He worked as a barista for a small coffee shop there. That’s where I first heard about El Union Coffee. This small cafe ran by Kiddo and Sly sources locally grown coffee beans from around La Union. Their signature blend eventually was a hit among the locals and tourist. The cafe grew bigger than its size and had to move to a new location along MacArthur National Highway.
