Ipoh Pak Kong Chicken Rice

Ipoh is my favorite place for stopping over whenever I travel in between KL and Penang. I love the Nga Choi Gai there because the bean sprouts in Ipoh are plump and crunchy. Yum yum. You just can't get the same bean sprouts elsewhere.

I actually prefer to go to Cowan Street Taugeh Chicken but it opens only from 7pm onwards. I don't like touristy places like Lou Wong and On Kee so Pak Kong is a good alternative for me.

Salted vegetable soup (haam choy tong) will be served once you have placed your order. It's simple but nice.

Free flow of home made ginger sauce and chilli sauce, go really well with the poached chicken. Yum. Oh i mixed the two sauces.

I ordered acar, bean sprout and poached chicken for one.

The acar was quite nice, not great, but good.

The bean sprout wasn't good though. Overcooked but that's to be expected because this was cooked in advance. I prefer the more popular serving method in Ipoh where they blanch the bean sprouts and add seasoning and sauces just before serving!

The poached chicken was, however, not bad.

After my lunch in Pak Gong (Point B), I always walk across the road to buy two birds of Yim Guk Gai to go at Aun Kheng Lim (point A), then enjoy a bowl of tau fu far in Funny Mountain (Point C).
