Deja Vu! I Have Seen This Place Before

If you’re cruising down the streets of Ipoh and you happen to come across the Fujiawara Tofa Shop, don’t panic because you did not get “Isekai’d” into the world of Initial D, as the shop really does exist!

The new Initial D themed café opened their doors back in October of 2020 but wasn’t able to generate much buzz due to the MCO. The owner, Mr. Loo mentioned that he has always been a huge fan of the Initial D series and he fell in love with the AE86 since he first started watching the series. So upon acquiring the actual car, after years of searching, he felt inspired to open up an Initial D themed café.

Mr. Loo also managed to acquire a number of other cars as seen on the series as well, such as the EVO, Impreza, RX-7 and Silvia which he proudly parks right in front of his café.

He currently runs the café with his wife and a couple of friends. Now as the common narrative with themed cafés goes, “the décor is amazing but the food is meh”, you won’t find such statements here as their signature tau fu fah and soybean milk that they serve is made fresh daily!

For those of you who aren’t in Ipoh and are keen on trying it out, you will have the opportunity soon, as Mr. Loo said that they will be opening a new outlet in Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur. Unfortunately the café is not Halal certified, but it is pork-free.

Just promise me that when you drive up to the café to try it out, please do not try and drift your ride to get there… oh but make sure you play some Eurobeat on the way there!
