While on the way to Penang, we detoured to Ipoh for lunch. Fortunately, there was an Ipoh local in 1 of our cars and she brought us here for lunch. DL can finally have a taste of Onn Kee’s bean sprout chicken, as he was complaining like a little kid when Onn Kee was closed the last time we were here and had to settle for Lou Wong instead.

... fat and crunchy bean sprouts, only to be found in Ipoh.

The bean sprouts and chicken here was indeed better than Lou Wong that I last had. In fact, it was a lot better. Somehow, I felt that the soup here was saltier and probably heavier on Ajinomoto. The chicken wasn’t as sinewy as most steamed chicken. Unfortunately, I still prefer roasted chicken as those steamed chicken skin has gone to waste for me. Meatballs were ordinary, I didn’t know what to expect. While DL was commenting on how the bean sprout was being artificially processed to make them fat, he got a good lecture from our local resident, lol. I’m not sure if me being a bit too hungry helps in making the taste felt better. I wonder what DL gotta say about the artificially enhanced taste of the dishes.
