When it comes to iconic culinary destinations in Malaysia, Ipoh is a city that stands out. Known for its delicious local cuisine, one name that has become synonymous with Ipoh’s food scene is Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong. This humble eatery has gained a reputation for serving mouthwatering chicken and bean sprouts, attracting locals and tourists alike. In this article, we will delve into the history, flavors, and charm of Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong.

Like any legendary establishment, Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong has humble beginnings. It all started in the 1950s when the late Mr. Wong opened a small stall, specializing in bean sprouts and chicken. Over time, his passion for quality ingredients and meticulous cooking techniques gained recognition, and the stall gradually transformed into the iconic restaurant we know today.

Central to the restaurant’s fame is its secret recipe for Tauge Ayam. Succulent steamed chicken is paired with fresh, crunchy bean sprouts, creating a delectable combination. The magic lies in the meticulous blanching process that ensures the bean sprouts retain their natural sweetness and crisp texture. Tender, flavorful chicken and the accompanying homemade soy sauce complete this mouthwatering dish.

    Absolutely delicious the chicken (my preference is thigh) even though breast part. And you CANT pick the chicken part. The portion was bigger than most chicken rice shop i have eaten. Loved the rice which was just prefect for me. The meatballs, the cili sauce and herbal tea were pretty good too. And I left the plates "clean"

    Seeing the other chicken rice shops nearby were closed today, I decided to try Lou Wong.Alas it was the wrong call. Even though there was a queue to eat here, I think it is due to the hype.Rm24 for 2 peoples portion of chicken which was all nearly bony piece with no meat is quite frankly a shame or a scam. Photo below. Did request for chicken breast/meaty pieces but the server said it was all a mix. Taste wise, it was a total let down compared to other spots. Nothing was really a positive.Tourist trap. Try other spots for your chicken rice fix, there are much better places. Won't be back.

    Seems like there is always a queue. Very famous chicken rice restaurant and must visit when in Ipoh. Their famous dish, Tauge Ayam (Bean Sprouts Chicken) was delicious. Seriously better than KL. The chicken was tender, the bean sprouts were crunchy, and the flavors were great. The service was very efficient due to the amount of ppl there. It's cray. Customers coming in non stop.

    Of course, nothing could go wrong with good food. Service was fast, potion is big. But the downside is that, the place is small, constantly packed (understandable cause the food is so worth it) and slightly dirty to which is ok for me. Oh, for locals you should be aware that there’s a separation of table going on in this restaurant where locals eat inside and foreigners eat outside of the restaurant. But from what I see, it’s definitely cause lack of tables and overcrowded people waiting to be seated.

    Upon arrival at Ipoh , Malaysia , our group immediately had our first dinner at Restoran Tauge Ayam Lou Wong located in the heart of Ipoh Old town. The place was non-airconditioned and big with many tables including outdoor seatings and could accommodate many diners. Taking order of food was fast and the food also were served promptly . We really enjoyed a delectable meal of steamed chicken, chicken rice, bean sprouts and fishball & meat ball soup and others . The chicken was tender and moist and the fishball was smooth and bouncy. We loved the bean sprouts as it was crunchy and succulent hence we ordered two plates for six of us. Overall food was good though the prices were also above average and the place could be quite hot and noisy due to the large crowd.
