Based on what we heard from a few people, locals and non-locals, this place is a must visit whenever we're in Ipoh. Though be warned that at peak hours there will be full of people there trying to get a table and food as well. 

The main thing that is popular at Big Tree Foot is their Yong Tao Fu. Apparently it's pretty generous in size and cheaper than any that you can find in KL - whether that is true is quite uncertain to me. But it is pretty good. 

 

 
They have many many choices of Yong Tao Fu for you to choose from, all laid out in separate trays. All you have to do is go there and pick what you want, choose whether you would like it to be in soup or have it cooked with some sauce. 

We tried both and I quite liked the spread that we got. Though I guess because some of it have been cooked beforehand and left there to sit for a while, it's no longer as crispy or fresh-tasting anymore. But the sauce & soup that comes with it does kind of make up for that fact a little bit. 

 
There was also a store that sells all sorts of fried stuff. From fried bananas to nian gao and then there were these sweet potato balls. Seemingly simple and blah, but one bite of these puffs had us going back there to buy several batches more. It is even better if you get it just fried. MUST TRY.

Chicken Rice! Smile Oct 07, 2015

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
