Lou Wong 'Nga Choi Gai' @ Ipoh

on Jul 8, 2010
This was our last stop during our Penang road trip... I'd been to 'Lou Wong' a couple of times already and yet I just can't get enough of it!!! So as usual, a stop at 'Lou Wong' was considered as mandatory whenever we went to Ipoh or Penang...

When we reached there, the shop was packed to the brim... We waited for around 5 minutes for seats and it was raining very heavily at that time!!! What really surprised me was how fast they managed to serve customers... Once seated it took around 5 minutes for our food to arrive!!! Really fast in my opinion and that's a '+' point from me...



As usual, both of us opted for 'hor fun'... The soup was really sweet and I love it but not my darling... According to her, the soup was way to sweet and she suspected a lot of MSG was being used for the soup...


Here comes the main dish... But sadly speaking, the chicken was nothing to shout about... Nothing special except for the gravy which was heavenly!!! Without the gravy, I bet you won't eat the chicken at all... The chicken was not tender nor juicy... Instead it looks and feels overcooked... Definitely not the chicken that I'm expecting... If my memory served me right, they served much better chicken last time...


I can find chicken way better than this easily... Really disappointed!!!


The bean sprout or 'nga choi' which I considered as a main dish as well... If it was not a main dish then why do we called it 'nga choi gai'???


If you asked me, I would preferred the meat/pork balls over fish balls... The meat/pork balls was so much nicer...


Another disappointing dish in my opinion... The chicken knuckle was really tasteless... Not recommended unless you're a die hard chicken knuckle fans!!!


1 bowl of 'hor fun' was definitely not enough... So another bowl of rice was the answer...


Besides that, we ordered more chicken as well... Guessed we were really hungry!!!


We were really disappointed with the chicken... Frankly speaking, I don't think I will be returning in the near future... Maybe I will try out 'Onn Kee' which is better according to a lot of people...


Overall Rating - 3/5
