You wanted to taste the famous Ipoh taugeh chicken without worrying about getting a parking space for your car, then this is the place for you. To me, the taste of the bean sprouts chicken is no lesser than those found in the town. Drive your car towards the direction of Medan Kidd (the local city bus station), continue the... More

It took us well over a year after moving to this part of town to find that there was this outlet conveniently located near us, with easy parking. At around 5.30pm, they were just getting ready, and only the outside tables were open for customers. A young man was doing all the cooking and chopping, while a few female assistants... More

Worth the waiting as the food here is so much better than town.personally prepared by the boss himself and his assistants. It's the best you can find and value for money.

This is the spring-off of the famous Lou Wong chicken taugeh in town. It's run by the sister of Lou Wong and personally it taste better than the original Lou Wong. Chicken is succulent and the Hor fun is very smooth.

One of the famous local dish. The chicken taste good but is tougher than the ones I had in Singapore. Unique taste. Ambience wise it is the same as any local coffee shop. Go after or before peak hours so you do not have to wait too long for a sit

Famous for bean sprouts production, Buntong is the place to be to get them fresh and crunchy! Added with the famous Chicken pieces/slices and a bowl of noodles, they pack the right punch for Ipoh's infamous Tauge Chicken and Noodles alliance!

I absolutely love to enjoy ipoh's specialty bean sprout chicken. This place is run and set up by the sister of the owner of Lou Wong Bean Sprout chicken.

Chicken and bean sprout is better than Lou Wong and Ong Kee not the noodles soup. Most of us who stay in Ipoh are not able to find the place unless someone take us there. They should put signboard so those from outstation can enjoy this place. Is more locals there..
