Restaurant Lou Wong

Top choice malaysian in Ipoh

Ipoh's signature dish, tauge ayam (chicken bean sprouts), has been perfected at perennially popular Lou Wong. The restaurant is unadorned, with plastic seats spilling into the street, but the sole dish on offer is immensely satisfying: smooth poached chicken on soy-drenched cucumber, and crunchy bean sprouts sprinkled with pepper. Side dishes are either rice or noodles, and a bowl of chicken stock.
