    Oon Kei still my favourite compare to Lou Wong, I think most of the local too.

    but sometime I feel too boring when I need to get my fren to try their chicken whenever they come to Ipoh :(

    one more thing that I feel frus, he likes Lou Wong instead of Onn Kei…. :(

    vkeong, tell me how a? geram……

    I like the beefballs too!

    I generally don’t like steamed chicken, but Lou Wong’s version is an exception! Smooth and tender… *yumm* =)

    those arent pork balls?

    and the bubbles may arise from pouring the hot soup in the bowl of kuey teow …. not dishwasher lah. :)

    vk: To be honest I can’t remember whether it’s pork or beef balls lol. Yeah about the dishwash I was just kidding hehe. I notice the bubbles everytime I have Ipoh Koay Teow (usually at Old Town Kopitiam)

    agree with Allie, Onn Kei is much better tasting compared to the overrated Lou Wong. Everyone has different taste and preference though

    Onn Kee is usually the popular one among locals, although foreigners would prefer Lou Wong. To me, they taste the same! *terrible* But do try the Onn Kee’s chicken next time and do a comparison ok. So you must must remember how the Lou Wong chicken taste from now until then. :P

    Wow… The bean sprouts has just confirmed the fact that Ipoh bean sprouts are certainly fat and short! The chicken looks good too!:-) Must come and try next time because the last time I came, it has already closed for the day…:-(

    looking at this entry is literally teasing me as I know I couldn’t just make my way there in a jiffy from home to taste them..
    however, in ref. to the meat balls, i am pretty sure they’re pork as my dad always order ‘ju yok yun yak wun’ as they are sure delicious and bouncy!
    yum!! salivating again…

    I prefer Onn Kei for not-so-oily kuey teow. But I think both shops’ hygiene factor were almost the same.

    I love Lou Wong! Their chicken is ultra smooth and their keow tiau too. However, i think it’s partly because they were practically drenched in chicken oil. However, their taste is superb and do you guys know they use ‘wu sou kai’ (a type of expensive chichken)? It’s really hard to cook this type of chicken as they are leaner, hence harder to make they smooth. So thumbs up for lou wong!

    Some claim cowan street nga choi kai is better. I think their hor fun is better. but chicken is definitely lou wong.

    Hi there, I would like to highlight a complaint that you might be interested. A complaint against, Restaurant Onn Kee.%D%A%D%AOn 22nd September 2009, me and my family went to Jalan Yau Tet Shin in Ipoh.%D%A%D%AWe parked our car in front of Restaurant Onn Kee after circling the city for an hour looking for a parking lot.%D%A%Dut to our surprised, we were immediately and fiercely told to remove our car as they said the parking lots in front of their shop are private properties which is nonsense as it was clearly public parking lots.%D%A%D%AWe were hesitated because we are tax payers, why are we not allowed to park there. But as any good citizen, we politely asked them can we park there for just a little while after all, we saw their customers parking there before us.%D%A%Dut instead of telling us cannot, they were shouting at us but we clearly cannot understand their language. And since we have children and also old folk with us, we were irritated with the shouting. So we said we were just asking, no need to get angry in a soft tone, we have dozens of witnesses, if only they are listening. But one of their bosses or staff there were again clearly showing sign of gangsterism saying if you do not remove you car you will regret it.%D%A%D%AWe of course remove our car, not because we are afraid of them but we are just there to do some quick shopping with our family and don\\t intend to get involve in any untoward incident.%D%A%Dan you please highlight this. Please stop them from day light robbery of our public properties.%D%A%Dnd also, Restaurant Lou Wong are also occupying alot of public parking lots for their private use. But the worst is Restaurant Onn Kee, we believed many have experience similar bad experiences with them.%D%A%D%AI am very sure alot of people would be interested in this issue. Especially those that were affected and threaten by these ignorant and selfish shop owners.

    About the comment on the bubbles in the soup of the koay teow, best to avoid or don’t eat too much (sorry to be party-popper). It’s not remnant dish-washing liquid either. When you order a bowl each of koay teow soup and meehoon soup and when they are served, the meehon soup won’t have bubbles or have much less – so, the bubbles are not due to remnant dish-washing liquid.
    Yeah, I believe they are pork balls with pieces of octopus (dark color bits) – not beef balls.

    I was down in Ipoh Sunday with my wife. Went to Lou Wong to try Nga Choi Gai. Big disappointment. Nothing to shout about the chicken and Nga Choi. I have tasted better chicken in KL.

    Lou Wong is juz over exaggerated. The chicken wasnt tender…quite hard. No proper chili to go with the chicken. Only the chopped “cili padi”. Usually we eat chicken rice with the blended red chili. Bad customer service. No way am I gonna go bk there. Will hv to try Onn Kee to see the diff.
