Salted Chicken From Aun Kheng Lim, Ipoh


If you happened to drop by Ipoh for Lou Wong bean sprout chicken rice, you can walk over to another street for the Aun Kheng Lim salted chicken. You can only take away since they don't have dine in service. That’s what we did when we dine at Aun Kee for chicken hor fun, which is next door to the Lou Wong.


I found a few slices of Dong Quai aka Angelica sinensis inserted inside the free range chicken’s abdomen. It is wrapped up in a few layers of parchment paper and then baked in salt. So, the outcome is a herbal infused and salty fragrant chicken. Each chicken cost RM17. The portion is just enough for 2 to serve with steamed rice.

To make up a balanced meal, I serve the it with chicken rice and sliced Japanese cucumber. It is a simple and yet satisfying lunch.

I used to frequent Lou Wong a lot for supper, but since the kids came along, we rarely go there since it's not that baby friendly.

Yup, the best in Ipoh ... bar none. Easily finished by one person, the chicken ain't that big to be shared. Or maybe we are just gluttons, after all.

Awesome shot! Sadly I had missed this well-known food of Ipoh when I was there this year : (.
We had two meals of chicken hor fun, and enjoyed them both : ).
