Remember when our Asian pride aka Chicken Rice, was awarded A Michelin Star, a first for street food stalls all over the world and our very own Ipoh Born Chef, Chan Hon Meng started from the bottom in Singapore is currently bringing his Michelin-starred chicken rice shop to Ipoh. How about surprising your tastebuds with his world signature dish right here in Ipoh for just RM6.80 ?! You’ve heard that right.
Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle Branched out to Ipoh
Calling out the Chicken Rice specialists cuz if you haven’t tried this chicken rice, you’re ain’t getting that title! Apprenticing with a chef from Hong Kong, Chef Chan Hon Meng named his chicken rice the Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice inspired by the cooking style there and it’s nothing like you’ve ever had before! And now folks don’t have to travel all the way to Singapore to get a taste of world most humble Chicken Rice cuz they’ve come to you at Ipoh Theatre Street and that’s the tea!
With either the chicken being roasted or tender steamed as the usual choice, this new spot is showing us a different take with the chicken being marinated in soy sauce, Chinese herbs exuding a fruitness and aroma flavor. Nothing like our ordinary barbecued chicken! Bringing it to boil just right, your teeth will easily sink through the chicken meat that is so juicy, tender with the Thai rice truly complementing the flavors and marination.
The chicken may be the star of the show, but spring also for the supporting side dishes, such as the pork roast fatty, thick cut, well charred exuding a perfect balance of sweet and savory will leave you wanting more with the roast pork, wonton noodles, rice noodles, rapeseed and sprouts truly shining in the own way and together!
With the Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle in Chinatown winning the prestigious award in 2016, It’s no wonder the locals are taking the place by storm with 100 whole chicken being sold on the first day of the opening! Officially opening on the 16th of March, be sure to get your hands on this Michelin Star goodness and tell what you think or what the hype is all about!
