We had tried others but still come back to Aun Kheng Lim as none was able to beat this old time favorite. The ones we had bought to take home had less herbs (tong kooi) and the way the chickens were baked were less tender...and juicy.
We picked up 3 chickens from our favorite shop and after the long three and a half hours drive home they were still delicious. The meat was tender, well seasoned with aromas of the herbs and salt and juicy! We chilled a couple in an air tight container in the fridge and the chickens tasted as they were fresh from the shop. The trick was to steam it with wrappers on for a mere 5 minutes, and served immediately.
So if you want to have your Salt Baked Chicken I recommend you to look no further other than Aun Kheng Lim for your salted chicken fix.More
The store sells ready made whole salted chicken to take away, one for 21 ringgits. The chicken is atill a little warm, not too big, very flavorful, and super very juicy. The two of us finished the whole chicken in 10 minutes.
Chicken size is small as they use spring chicken. Reasonable price. One of the main ingredients used is the Angelica Roots aka Dong Gui, stuffed inside the chicken. During steaming (best to eat it hot), you can smell the aromatic herbs and I love the...taste of it. Chicken meat is tender with just the right balance of saltiness (best to eat with rice) and herbal flavours. Always bought frozen to bring back home.More
Chanced upon the shop and bought one as our friend told us we must try salt bake chicken when in Ipoh. There was no Q on a Thur afternoon. We brought it all the way to Cameron highlands; 2 of us had it for supper...in hotel room. Even though it's cold, meat is still tender and I love the herbal taste of angelica roots stuffed in the chicken. We finished the whole thing in 20min. Think it would taste even better when hot.More

To my muslim friend, I am sorry but I don't think the chicken is halal but you may offend your mother-in-law if you refuse to consume the meat as she must hv loved you very much to the extent that she always keep you in mind where ever she goes. My advice is for you to consult an iman before you make any decision. This is only my personal view and you can discard this message if you do not agree.
