Jason had once joked, "Ipoh must have ranked high if there's any statistic on chickens killed per year throughout Malaysia."
It was true in a way, with Ipoh famous and signature dishes like bean sprouts chicken and salted chicken.
If you have seen the title and expecting names such as Lou Wong 老黄 or Onn Kee 安记, then you have come to the wrong blogpost.
However, if you intend to find out what is the BEST Bean Sprouts Chicken that Ipoh has to offer, you're more than welcomed to stay and drool over the food photos.
As an Ipohian himself, Jason has spoiled his tongue with numerous good food (medicro just doesn't count).
It goes the same way with other Ipohians as they only eat from the BEST.
Situated at Pusat Makanan Zui Xiang Cun, this stall has no media publicity such as radio advertising or tv programme interview, nor newspaper write up to be hanged over the wall.
Yet this place is flooded with Ipohians once it hits dinner time.
For your info, the stall will be closed once the chickens have been sold out.
So be there early or risk going back in empty stomach.
Once seated, an Indian who speaks fluent cantonese came to take our orders.
(don't be surprised as cantonese is the main language in Ipoh city afterall)
Chicken and Beef Satay
Do order satays from nearby stall while waiting.
The satays here are not bad, though not as heavenly as fatCUPID.
Ipoh famous bean sprouts aka tauge
Notice the size of bean sprouts here?
Comparatively fatter than those available out of Ipoh, much crunchier too!

Tender, succulent, well-cooked, smooth!
Hor Fun 沙河粉
Another well known noodle of Ipoh is Hor Fun (Flat Rice Noodle).
It looks like kuey teow, but much more thinner and flatter.
Hence the smooth texture as if no chewing was required.
Paired very well with flavourful and slightly sweet broth from chicken bones.
The portion was pretty small of 2 to 3 mouthful, be sure to order at least 2 bowls for normal appetite.
