Ipoh new town and Lou Wong Chicken Hor Fun ...

Practically, Ipoh town area is divided between the old town and new (not so new...) town, by the Kinta River. After strolling around the old town, I usually will drove over to the 'new' town. I have blogged about the new town before where it's becoming like a mini Jonker street with the night market around. However, it seems didn't materialise as it seems the same. I thought the authorities should do more to promote the 'new' errr.. (not so new) town. 


Lots of stalls setup to extend their business during CNY

I finally had Lou Wong Chicken Hor Fun again and though the bean sprout and chicken are still good, I find somehow the soup for the hor fun not as good as before. Overall, it's still good.


Half-chicken for four of us

Big bean sprouts ...yummy

The soft and smooth Hor fun ....
I guess I will try other 'taugeh ayam' like Ong Kee next time ....

  1. Didn't get to eat this when I went to Ipoh on a short day trip. Claire took me to a restaurant and treated me to a scrumptious feast, could not manage to eat anything else after that.

    1. Hope you can try it in your next trip to Ipoh. Anyway, I think it's better to have a scrumptious meal than this one. Lol

    1. Well, I guess it's almost the same outside especially if you ate at those good ones.

  7. hmmm you went to Lou Wong!! I'm actually a little surprised, I thought locals don't go there.. err, wait, you are staying in SG/JB, so you are not local la, haha.. I can't remember if I've been to Lou Wong or Onn Kei, they are just next to each other but always packed with people..

    1. Frankly, nothing much to see in Ipoh but you can stop by for a meal before going to Penang.
