The Dato Sagor Food Court (Medan Selera Dato Sagor) located in the vicinity of the Birch Memorial Clock Tower will reopen for business after Hari Raya Aidilfitri next month. The renovation works, which began in September 2014, was completed at a cost of RM3.1 million.
Originally, there were 36 food and drinks stalls at the food court. However, with this upgrade, there will only be 28 stalls with four more allocated to the Ministry of Tourism.
Medan Selera Dato Sagor is one of sixteen food courts owned by the Ipoh City Council. Therefore, two days ago, stall holders were invited to Bangunan MBI for a simple ceremony to receive the keys to the stalls from the council.
In his speech, Ipoh City Mayor Dato’ Zamri Man said that Dataran Dato Sagor would hopefully attract tourists as it is within the Heritage Trail and very near to other popular spots such as Birch Memorial Clock Tower, Concubine Lane and the Ipoh Railway Station, just to name a few landmarks.
He hoped that stall holders would work together to make Dataran Dato Sago a must-stop point for tourists. “I wish to remind you to offer your best services to your customers alongside your signature dishes which are not available anywhere else. Most importantly, all of you must work together to complement one another to improve business,” he added.
