Bean Sprout Chicken, or better known as Nga Choi Gai in Cantonese is something that everyone will always link it with when someone mentioned Ipoh. It’s actually the same thing with Hainanese Steamed Chicken, just that at Ipoh, it was served with bean sprout, and people usually eat it with koay teow instead of rice.
There are actually 2 restaurant famous for selling Nga Choi Gai at Ipoh, which is Lou Wong and Ong Kee. Both are equally famous, and serve real good Nga Choi Gai. Besides, both restaurant are also located at the same road, just directly opposite each other. I really wonder what lead to both boss operating their business at the same place, snatching customer is fun eh?
I actually wanted to try Lou Wong this time around as for the past few times I always dine at Ong Kee. However, looking at the crowd at Lou Wong, I decided to skip it again as I can’t find an empty table there.
Ong Kee seems to have an advantage over here as they have 2 shops, and they are able to serve more customer. People like me who is OK with both shop will surely went to the one where I no need to stand and wait.
When I was eating there, the person who chopping the chicken is working non stop. I really wonder, how many chicken they sell each day.
