If you’ve heard of Ipoh. You’ll recognize foodie terms like Ipoh chicken rice, Ipoh hor fun, Ipoh white coffee, etc. Today, we’re about Ipoh chicken rice.
In Ipoh, a recommended and popular chicken rice restaurant is in Taman Jubilee – Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong Ipoh Sdn Bhd.
“When in Ipoh, what to do in Ipoh? Eat. Ipoh chicken rice.”
How to get there
Address: 49, Jalan Yau Tet Shin, Taman Jubilee, 30000 Ipoh, Perak
Getting around Ipoh is fairly simple; either you take the bus, take a taxi, Grab, or walk.
We took a Grab from our AirBnb nearby in Ipoh. The Grab fare was RM5 for 4 pax for a 1 kilometere plus ride.
Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong
The restaurant can’t be missed, as it’s a corner shop lot with yellow roof and big yellow signboard all around. The name “Lou Wong” prominently displayed in red on the board.
By noon, when we reached there, the restaurant was already in overflow mode. Waiters were setting up more tables along the side of the road. Lots of people were also queueing up outside to get a table inside.
We waited about 15 to 20 minutes to get a table.
Unlike most other chicken rice shops, Lou Wong only has steam and roasted chicken, for meat dishes. They don’t serve roasted pork (siu yuk) and BBQ pork (char siew).
In addition to the chicken, you can also order bean sprouts, meat or fish balls, lettuce, and chicken feet to go with the main dish.
Since there were 7 people at our table, we ordered one whole steam chicken, bean sprouts, and a bowl of meat and fish balls in soup.
During my 3D2N trip in Ipoh, Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong was one of the 7 places I visited in 1 day. Watch the YouTube video below.
