Restoran Onn Kee, Ipoh

Last weekend, we went for a short trip to Penang..well, you've guessed it, it was an eating trip :p
And first pit stop for us was Ipoh, for some bean sprouts chicken (ngar choy gai) and we went to Restoran Onn Kee.
Onn Kee is as famous as Lou Wong, another ngar choy gai establishment located just a few shops away. They have their own fan base, though there's also a number of people finding it over rated.
Me? Well, as long as it taste good, it dont really matter being over rated or not..hehe
My first visit to Onn Kee was about 7 years back and I do pop by here whenever I'm in Ipoh.
Usual orders would be the beansprouts
Short, juicy, plump sprouts looks so gorgeous compared to Klang Valley scrawny, dry version. Delicious. And we always wonder why. And we'd always answer to ourselves..must be the water in Ipoh..haha
I've always loved porkballs..but they recommended a mix of fishballs and porkballs I still prefer the porkballs with the strong cuttlefish flavour. Yummy indeed. Fishballs paled in comparison.
Some hor fun (flat noodles) to go with the ngar choy gai..Dry version and soup version. Very smooth and just glides down our throats. Must be the water in Ipoh..hehe
And the other star that completes the ngar choy gai pair..
the chicken..The chicken meat was smooth, juicy and sweet. Though it does not look that appealing, the skin had a lovely texture; springy and smooth. Soaked lightly in the sauce, the combination is very tasty indeed.
Total bill was RM36.40 (for 4 person)
We left Onn Kee with a very full stomach, but we still managed to have a bowl of lovely tau foo fah before we left for Penang..woohoo
Restoran Onn Kee(Tauge Ayam) is located at 51, Jalan Yau Tet Sin, Ipoh.
