Sometimes I think it's a good idea to take a drive out of the city and into another for a small getaway. It'll be personally good for the soul. Though really I cheat by taking a train down to Ipoh where my friend stays so he can brin me around all the places to get good food. Despite the many other places to eat, we will always go to Lou Wong to get some chicken & tauge.
This place is just one of those staple must haves when you are in Ipoh town regardless of whether you like chicken or not. It is crazily packed during school holidays and weekends, so try to go during weekdays to avoid a crowd.
It is of course a no brainer to order the chicken. Since there's only two of us, we'd only order one and a half portion because we usually like to order other things as well. Like always the chicken is always nice and tender with just the right amount of flavour from the sauce which I happily douse my meat in it.
Again, the usual order is a plate of tauge doused in sweet soya sauce and liberal amount of black pepper. I super love eating this and can happily finish an entire plate by myself. So usually we'd order an extra plate just for myself just to enjoy with plain rice.
Another thing that we really like to order is the offal. Basically this is a plate filled with the innards of the chicken - there's the gizzards, liver and heart, all cut up into pieces. We usually like this especially since it comes with the same sauce as the chicken which my friend and I really like. Most people would kinda find this gross but it's actually pretty nice & some parts are even beter for your health than the actual chicken.
No matter what, whenever I am in Ipoh, this is a place I will always visit for some nice chicken and tauge. :3
