Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong 老黄芽菜鸡沙河粉

One of the Tourist Must Eat Itineraries in Ipoh will be none other than their Tauge Ayam. I was kind of flabbergasted by the amount of people queuing up at Lou Wong throughout my visit there and was asking myself if I should have a try too.

Being a foodie, its hard to resist a popular eatery especially when the place was just a stone throw away. No doubt that there were alot of patrons, I must admit that the turn over was quick fast and we had our seats quickly after a short queue.

Let's Queue Up

While passing through the corridors of Lou Wong, I saw this blue plastic barrel filled of chicken to its brim. It seems like this method of poaching chicken is common everywhere. 

How the Poached Chickens were prepared

These chickens were then drained and placed on the table top waiting to be chopped.

Preparing the Chickens

2 staff were in charge of chopping up the chicken. With the peak hours, these guys were going through a non-stop motion.

Chopping up

They were so focus and busy in the preparation of chicken.

Busy during Peak Hours
While queueing up, we got to decide what to order as majority of their dishes were all displayed on their signboard.

What do you want to order?

The menu was limited and varieties were quite fix. They even had their beverages printed too.

On the Wall

If you cannot get enough of the menu, you can take a look at their printed menu too. We made a quick decision upon looking into the menu and immediately order as we settled down for our seats.


No doubt that it was indicated that no fund-raising to enter the shop during business hours, there are still a number of paddlers walking into the shop bothering the customers, asking them to buy the goods.

Chilli Sauce Self Service

The interior seating were just as full as the exterior, bustling and filled with noises. 


While I was sitting near the back kitchen, I noticed their process of drinks preparation.

Where the drinks were mass produced

Shortly after our orders were made, the assistant brings the different kinds of chilli and soya sauce to our table.

The speed of serving food was efficient and in no time, all the dishes were in order.

Our Orders

I'm quite a fan of poached chicken and we had ordered a slightly bigger portion, half chicken, which is enough for 3 pax. 

Half Chicken 半只鸡 - RM 36.00

While this standard of chicken was considered the best in Ipoh and a must try, personally I find that its a disappointment. These poached chicken was simply blanched, added with sauce and seasonings. The taste was mediocre. It lacked the savoury taste from the spice we had back at our place.  


These plump and juicy beansprouts are the speciality in Perak. Even though it was blanched and simply added with sauce then sprinkled by chopped spring onions and pepper, they are already consider delicious. However, if these juicy sprouts were prepared the way we had back home, they will be even better.

Bean Sprouts 芽菜 - RM 6.00

Popping my eyes into other dining tables, I noticed that most of the patrons ordered the dry Noodle and that led me to my decision too.  The noodle was arguably a kid's portion and its an addition to slurp them down for they were deliciously smooth with the tasty sauce. 

Noodle 粉 - RM 2.00

We ordered the smallest bowl of meatball soup with 5 pieces in the bowl. The meatballs were big and bouncy but there were some hard bits within the ball itself and might hurt your cavities if you bite them down without noticing. 

Meatball 肉丸 - RM 7.50 (5 pieces)

I tried as much not to think of how these drinks were prepared. We had the refreshing and cooling sour plum drinks washing down the chicken meal.   

Citrus 柑桔水 - RM 2.00 (Per Cup)

I personally will give this place a miss as chicken rice back home is one of our unofficial national dish and most stalls can beat this place hands down.
