Kayes, this is Jubilee Park on Cowan Street and not Anderson Road. On the right was where the three bakeries were situated, French Bakery, Paris Bakery and Noor Jahan Bakery.

Is Jubilee Park still operating? I used to hang out at times with my school friends after school activities....playing pool, pinball and 1st generation computer games.....that was long time ago!

Hi, Joe.


Are the bakeries still there? I remember buying my favourite bags of coconut candy cubes from one of those bakeries whenever I had saved up enough pocket money as a kid. I loved the aroma of freshly baked goodies wafting from the bakeries.

Hi Hokin and Phoebe,
I don't think Jubilee Park is operating as before. Looks rather quiet. As for the bakeries, sadly only Noor Jahan is still standing while the others have disappeared. Recently, I found a bakery in Kuala Kangsar Road distributing Sunshine bread. As for coconut candy cubes, there is a lady selling it in Silibin Road.

Hi Phoebe, Joe, & Hokin,


This picture sure brings back a lot of memories. As you know, my brother's optical shop is only a few steps away on Brewster Road, I use to do a lot of pinball games and also billards after school. And as for the bakeries, love the cream horns, coconut candies and the rock like scones. Oh, the smells of the bakeries.
Do any one of you remembered the peanut pancakes across the street from the bakeries?

Hi, Joe. Thanks for the info. You're like our very own encyclopaedia on Ipoh food. Thumbs Up!


Fortunately, coconut candies are easy to make. My sons love them so they get to enjoy the rare occasional treats when I can get quality dessicated coconut since freshly grated coconut is unavailable here.


Hi, Sam. Thanks for mentioning the wickedly yummy cream horns. I couldn't remember what they were called! But I do remember getting our own fancy '12th Birthday' cake ordered from one of the bakeries was a big deal for us relatively poor kids back in the '70s.


What are peanut pancakes? Are they like "Dai Gow Meen"?

hello Sam, I loved the cream horns too. Here's a pic of the last bakery standing.


Joe, "Sunshine" bread is a trade mark owned by Cold Storage. I wonder whether that bakery in Kuala Kangsar Road is licensed by Cold Storage to bake their bread or they are merely distributors. In Penang, the bakery was behind their supermarket in Penang Road.

Thanks Phoebe, just love scouting round for good food and such. Smile
Sam, the cream horns were also my favourite. Just loved them. I think the peanut pancakes were 'tai kow meen' made in smaller pans. There was a guy selling it across the street from the bakeries. Before that, the guy sold apong and had a very dim kerosine light. I used to cycle from Greentown to Cowan St. just to buy apong for my dad. Back then, for only RM2/- you get a bag full. After that her sold 'apong balik' with a slice of banana in it. It went on for some time before selling tai kow meen. I remember that guy cos I noticed his right arm was bigger than the other.
Kayes, you're right. Sunshine bread is a trade mark owned by Cold Storage. I was surprised to find this bakery with freshly baked bread with the 'Sunshine' packing. Its slightly cheaper than HiFive and Gardenia but doesn't seem to be distributed well in Ipoh. I can't find it anywhere in the supermarkets or grocery shops so when I feel like it, I'll drive over to Kuala Kangsar road to buy it. Btw this bakery is just beside the EON Showroom and workshop.
