In this next 2 blogs, I will be doing a comparison between the 2 long time rivals, Onn Kee and Lou Wong, for their famous Beansprout Chicken in Ipoh. To be honest, both sides have their own fans and equally crowded. Onn Kee has 2 stalls; one beside Lou Wong and the other diagonally opposite Lou Wong. Seems like they are bent on combing Lou Wong and hopefully capture a bigger pie of the market. So here are my findings for Onn Kee.
Taste: Very nice ‘cos tried it for the first time. Tasty!
Price: The meal for 2 came up to about RM$35+
RTE:Yeah but I think I prefer Lou Wong’s… see my next blog post.
Location:Just tell the cab driver. Everyone knows. Ipoh town is very small place.
Finally I’m clearing my back logs and now reached my Ipoh archives! If you have not been to Ipoh, Ipoh is a far north of Western Malaysia and about an hour from Cameron Highlands and 2 hours aways from KL and Penang. It is also known for many mountains surrounding the city and hence, very nice scenery. I was there for my recce trip for Care Givers Group (CGG) charity trip up to Ipoh in Dec and so I’m combining the pics from the 2 trips in Sep and Dec. Will also review and compare 2 of the so called best Bean Sprout Chicken there as well in later posts. So keep a look out for them!
Like what the locals say, if you haven’t tried Foshan, Bean Sprout Chicken or Ipoh Hor Fun in Ipoh, you have not been to Ipoh! This is a very very popular dim sum place among locals and also tourists. Even Hong Kongers who have been there say the dim sum is really good! So die die I must go try and check out the pics below!:
Rating: 5/5. Food is excellent, service is not bad. If you don’t speak cantonese, try mandarin. If not, you’re on your own. ;P
Taste: Put it this way; If I’m back in Ipoh, I must come here for my breakfast!
Portion: Above average.
Price: See pics.
RTE: Duhhh… Needless to ask.
Location: See last pic. If lost, all cab drivers know where Foshan is. If not, get out the cab and flag another cos most likely that driver is not local.
