CHG dates all the way back to 1949, when founder Ching Peng Han from Chaoyang, Guangdong Province migrated to the then-Malaya with his young wife (pictured far-right in below photograph) and set up shop in Ipoh. Now run by Ching's grandchildren, the family business has preserved tradition by using century-old family recipes while continuously innovating to satisfy modern tastes.
Here's a fun fact! Recognise the familiar face in the photo? That was the late Stephen Hawking, a renowned theoretical physicist best known for his discovery of black holes. On his only trip to Malaysia in 1994 to deliver a public lecture at PWTC, he made a special trip to Ipoh just to visit CHG - the home & family business of his personal nurse, Ms. Ching.
