Last 2 weeks,
me & my friends drove to Ipoh~
Yeap, Ipoh mali..Ipoh mali..*grin*
Remember this song?
Photobucket
 By looking at the I-P-O-H sign above,
it always reminds me of H-O-L-L-Y-W-O-O-D sign as well^^
Doncha think so?? *wink*
Photobucket
Ipoh is surrounded with jutting limestone hills
as what you can see from the pic above^^
.

.
Not forget, Ipoh is also well-know with
their signature Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice!!
It's also name "Nga Choi Gai" in cantonese~~
.

.
Since there are so many restaurants
selling Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice,
which restaurant is the famous
and the best of the best among all??
.

.
No worry & stop scratching your head,
cz I'm about to share with you
the famous Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice in town!!
.

.

.
Photobucket
Tadaaaaaaaaaa^^
This is the 1!!!
Restoran Onn Kee (Tauge Ayam)!!
This was actually my 2nd visit to this restaurant!!
.

.

.
Photobucket
Before having the famous Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice,
Let's cool yourself down with this refreshing plum juice^^
.

.

.
Photobucket
Yeahhhhhhhh~~~
The well-know Chicken is finally unveil!!
.

.

.
Photobucket
The chicken texture is "chewy" enough & it is well-cooked too~
I don't think we can find the same texture of chicken in KL~
The gravy tastes not bad too and serves good with rice~
Gosh..I miss & *heart* it so much!!!
.

.

.
Photobucket
The Bean Sprouts!!
I've noticed that the bean sprouts are
kinda "big" & "short* if compare with those we had in KL.
Not only that, it's crunchy enough and you will ask for more!!
.

.
The price is quite reasonable.
There were 4 of us and the total price is only RM34.80.
(included 4 drinks + a bowl of "hor fun")
.

.
Before we left,
I've taken some significant pics in this restaurant^^
Check it out below:
Photobucket
Pictures of many many Asian artists
did "makan" at this restaurant.
No wonder this restaurant is famous, right??
I spotted "Lam Fung", "Bosco", "Ah Du', "Ao Yong Zhan Wah" 
& many more had taken picture with the owner with this restaurant!!.

.

.
Photobucket
Not only that,
I was amazed by these "hands-free" drawings on the wall!!
.

.

.
Photobucket
Ain't it look cute??
There's the chinese name of this restaurant
"Onn Kee" written on the stomach of Tweety Bird^^
.

.

.


For your info,
there is another restaurant has the same name shown below
which situated very near to the restaurant I mentioned above!!
Photobucket
Remember,

Please don't step into the wrong restaurant ya^^
.

.
That's all for today,

Bean Sprouts chicken rice

Posted: 22 June 2010 by Lisa717 in Labels: , , ,

Apa khabar pembaca-pembaca & rakan-rakan sekalian??
Salam sejahtera & Selamat petang saya ucapkan..
.

.
Hey, what's wrong with me??
Why do I speak "Malay" at the first place??
.

.
Ehem..*cough*
This is the post that I'm gonna blog about the
Food Review session with bloggers in IR1968^^
.
.
Do you still remember IR1968 that I
mentioned earlier in my previous post??
If you have zero knowledge about it,
let me introduce to you 1 more time~
.

.
IR1968 also stands for
Indochine Bar + Restaurant since 1968.
They are serving Indonesian + Chinese cuisines.
Their very 1st restaurant was born in 1968 @ Hong Kong.
Now, they have their 3rd outlet in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia^^
.

.
So, this is the reason why I spoke "Malay" just now!!
"Malay" language is kinda similar with "Indonesian" language~
Sorry.. if you find it's "lame" to you..
.
.
Please bear with me till the end of this post 
because I have so much to share with you especially the 
Food, Drinks, Ambience and People of IR1968!!
.

.
When it comes to a new restaurant in town,
the main question that everybody is going to ask is,
"Does the food taste good?"
.

.
To cut the crap short,
Let's check out the scrumptious food 
which serves as "Fine-Dining" style in IR1968!!
(I know many of you can't wait to check out the pics below :P)
.

.

.

.

.
Photobucket
~Semur Lidah (RM32)~
*MUST TRY THIS*
This is the best & recommended dish in IR1968. Almost everyone will surely order this "juicy" dish. You might "pause" and think what meat is this actually.. Well, it's an Indonesian Ox Tongue with sweet semur sauce!! Between, the "Ox tongue" grilled with butter and you just can't get rid with the sweet smell of it. Don't freak out, please~  (Belum cuba, belum tau..sekali cuba, tiap-tiap hari mau^^ :P)
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Gado Gado (RM18)~
This is a very traditional "Indonesian Salad". It consists of bean curd, bean sprout, cabbage, cucumber, lettuce, potato, egg, prawn cracker with the homemade peanut sauce. For your info, the "peanut sauce" kinda taste like the "satay's sauce". However, their homemade peanut sauce tastes far more delicious!! They serve this in a very-well mannered where the peanut sauce does not directly pour above the Gado Gado. A "Must Eat" dish if you really wanna experience Indonesian food.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Perkedel Jagung (RM15)~
I find this is a "warmth" starter as it's a home-recipe. It's a homemade Indonesian Shrimp Corn Cake. You are going to love it, esp.girls because the texture is not oily at all.  One bite and you can taste the fragrance of corn and shrimp at the same time.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Ikan Asam (RM38)~
This dish caters for the "Spicy Lovers" out there!! This Spicy and Sour Fish will surely capture your taste-bud once you have a sip on the spicy+sour gravy.  By looking at it is not enough, you gotta taste it since the fish is boneless and the perfect ingredients gravy serves well with plain rice.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Tahu Goreng Telur (RM18)~
If you wanna have a light meal, this is one of the dishes that you should order. You will find it interesting because it is Fried bean curd and egg with homemade peanut sauce.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Ayam Asam Kacang (RM22)~
This is the dish that Malaysians shouldn't miss!! Well, none of the restaurant out there except vegetarian doesn't serve chicken. If you only prefer to eat chicken, this is gonna be your next favourite dish!! A good mixture of fried chicken with peanut & plum sauce.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Sotong Kuning Goreng (RM38)~
Tired of flipping the menu?? Fresh squid fried with yellow ginger, salt and pepper is another recommended dish you should try.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Nasi Goreng Spesial (RM25)~
Wanna look out  for something new besides eating the nasi goreng that you always have?? Check out this special fried rice with 2pcs chicken satay, fried egg, prawn cracker & vege.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Nasi Kuning Campur (RM25)~
Bored with white plain rice? This yellow ginger rice with beef rendang, fried chicken , egg, prawn crackers will definitely satisfy your extraordinary taste-bud. Guess what, Indonesian used to have Nasi Kuning on Sunday only. Google it if you wanna know more^^
P/s: Some of you might find it cute why does the rice assembles in cone-shaped right? Well, this a purely Indonesian tradition on how they serve the rice.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Sop Shark (RM20 per person)~
This chinese double boiled Shark's Bone soup is more into Chinese cuisine. A very tender +smooth taste with shark's fin added in it.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Sop Buntut (RM12 per person)~
The famous soup in IR1968 which is none other than this Indonesian Ox Tail soup. With only a sip of it, you could taste the seducing aroma and I'm sure you wanna ask for more!!
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Sop Wanton (RM15 per person)~
Another chinese cuisine of Chinese double boiled prawn soup with wanton. This soup is filled with strong prawn taste with soft delicate wantons added^^
.

.

.
Photobucket
IR1968 does not only serves luscious food,
they do serve awesome drinks too!!
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Ice Lemongrass Ginger Tea (RM10)~
A tropical drink & you will find it very refreshing. With the mixture of lemongrass and ginger tea, you can rely to it in order to cool yourself down from the hot weather!! Love this a lot~
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Fresh Peach Tea (RM12)~
[New drink]
Personally, I love the ice-blended fresh peach on top of the tea. It's an amazing drink as I'm a "Tea lover" and I just couldn't get rid of the desirable taste of it.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Mango Kiwi (RM12)
A very good of Healthy Fruity Mix of Mango + Kiwi & most importantly 100% natural wild honey! It tastes mild sweet & a little bit sour taste of Kiwi.
.

.

.
Photobucket
~Sour Plum Juice (RM12)~
[New Drink]
A perfect drink for those who loves sour plum taste. You should order this after a heavy meal where it is good for digestion so that you won't easily get fat!! :P
