Thai Style Fried Rice (Pad Thai) with prawns On the first glance, Black Canyon Restaurant sounds to me like another western restaurant that serves chicken chop, fish & chips and steaks. Not that I am against western cuisine but they were not in my options as we stopped for lunch at Kinta City Shopping Centre (Jusco/Aeon) in Ipoh.
