Ipoh Lou Yau Bean Sprouts Chicken is run by the Select Group which also runs the eateries at SuperTree and the Hill Street Steamed Bread. This new offering serves Ipoh style steamed kampong chicken as well as silky smooth hor fun with Lou Yau's iconic plump and crunchy bean sprouts. This is the typical kampong chicken, so you will expect a leaner meat and slightly tougher bite.
Imported from Ipoh, these bean sprouts do not have the usual 'smelly' trait that puts off many. They are cooked to perfection, with the raw taste while retaining the crunch. In fact, I thought they tasted sweet!
Apart from the chicken and bean sprouts, Lou Yau offers a wide variety of side dishes. Again we apologise for the lack of photos for now. But some of the must-trys include the braised pork belly, crystal chicken feet and meat ball soup. Although the chicken innards and desserts are a miss for me.
A special mention has to be brought to the Ipoh hor fun, available in soup or dry version. All the way from Ipoh, the noodles indeed have a very unique bite attached to it. The texture is also very special, different from the common hor fun that we are used to. For those who prefers rice with the steamed chicken, the rice is well cooked with very little oil and yet very fragrant.
Ipoh Lou Yau Bean Sprouts Chicken is available at 6 outlets IMM, Centrepoint, Chervon House, VivoCity, Chinatown Point and White Sands) with 2 (J8 and Bugis Village) more opening in 2013.
