Kedai Makanan Nasi Ayam Ipoh – New Restaurant Ipoh Chicken Rice lays claim to one of the longest eating establishment signboards I’ve seen in my life. It spans a good four lengths of shop houses and has the bold tagline “Ipoh come to PJ“.
That’s not the end of the Engrish though – the stairs leading up to this fine eating establishment is also hand painted with the phrase “Please go up slowly” in red paint. I think they meant a lot of patrons have tripped on the stairs before. Careful is the word. 😉
Kedai Makanan Nasi Ayam Ipoh is supposed to have really good Ipoh style chicken rice and our main liaison here, Lee, brought us to Petaling Jaya to check out the food over here. There are two entrances due to the large area and the place is packed with patrons – a testament to the food.
The right side of the eating establishment is where the main chicken chopping action takes place. New Restaurant Ipoh Chicken Rice offers a huge amount of chicken products and the opening hours are from 10:30 AM to 10:45 PM.
New Restaurant Ipoh Chicken Rice has a standard bowl of chicken balls (no, not that kind) in soup served with chicken rice. There are about 4 chicken meat balls floating in the soup.
We also had a side order of Sweet Sauce Pork (the three-layered pork from the pork belly) which tastes sweet and good. There is also a side dish of large bean sprouts which is standard in chicken rice meals in Ipoh, or so I heard.
This is the main dish itself – Ipoh Chicken. The chicken is kampong chicken (free range chicken) and it came on a huge platter with most of the chicken parts inside (including the liver).
Ipoh Chicken Rice tastes sweeter than the chicken rice I usually have back home – the essence of chicken seeps out slightly from the chicken to be soaked up by the bed of cucumbers at the bottom of the dish and the meat is tender and sweet, flavored by spring onions.
Kedai Makanan Nasi Ayam Ipoh has really good chicken rice – it comes highly recommended from me. It’s somewhere in Petaling Jaya (PJ) but since someone brought us along; I don’t know exactly where it is or how much the meal costs. It’s great chicken rice though.
Ipoh comes to PJ indeed…
P/S – My apologies – I have to rush out again, this really is a business trip. 🙁]]>
