Ipoh capati seller Gurmeet Singh was featured briefly, with a photograph, by a Malaysian English daily newspaper The Star.

The entry entitled The Charms of Ipoh, on 4 July 2015, reads:

“Ipoh has a vibrant food scene which tourists flocking here. Gurmeet Singh’s Punjabi food is a hidden gem in Ipoh Garden South. With 21 years in the food industry, Gurmeet daily churns out soft chapati, delightful paratha, and hot and spicy mutton, chicken and sardine curry. Vegetables are cooked Punjabi-style. He cooks just enough for the day as he does not believe in serving leftovers. His stall, which opens at 4pm daily, can be found at Restaurant and Café New Weng Fatt.”

It notes that Ipoh covers a large area, including the neighbouring townships such as Bercham, Menglembu and Tanjung Rambutan, adding that the city is no more a retirees’ abode.
