Legendary Noor Jahan Bakery’s Owner Dies


Habib Rahiman P. Mohamed Salleh, the owner of the popular Ipoh bakery and cake shop Noor Jahan Bakery, passed away at 5:20 a.m. yesterday.

Viral Perak Facebook page posted information on the deceased’s passing.

One of the oldest stores still in business in Ipoh’s centre since more than 120 years ago is Noor Jahan Bakery, which is well renowned for its 80 sen doughnuts and other old school selections such as the  “benggali bread,” fruit cake, icing cakes, rock buns and breads. His late grandfather founded the company in 1902, and his father carried it on from that point on.

My Ipoh would like to extend our condolence to the family.
