Ipoh Lou Yau Bean Sprouts Chicken, Centrepoint

Ipoh Lou Yau Bean Sprouts Chicken, chicken rice

This chicken rice joint (#01-62, tel : +65 6735 2292) hailing from Malaysia must have been pretty new since I've never seen it around before. My initial impression was that it was probably an overpriced sub par quality franchisee of a brand that has seen better days. I was actually glad that I was wrong and the food was actually pretty decent, although a little small in portions.

What was really good about the chicken rice set were the perfectly blanched beansprouts which was super crunchy and had none of the associated taste of being undercooked. The timing of that would have to be pretty impeccable. The chilli sauce that they had offered also turned out to be an extry lime-ed up rendition of chicken rice chilli which I thought was rather refreshing as well on top of the heat. The yellow skinned chickens tasted rather ordinary and looked unattractively like those chooks that are marketed as kampung chickens.

Tried the branch at IMM. The chicken drumstick that I had was pretty good though a tad pricey. Gravy's savory, horfun (dry) smooth & delicious.
