Tasty Bean Sprouts and Poach Chicken

The Onn Kee Restaurant is a famous restaurant at Jalan Yau Tet Shin in Ipoh. It is located behind the main Jalan Sultan Iskandar. The bench mark to look for is the Police Station in the new part of Ipoh. In fact the whole street is famous as a foodie street in Ipoh. The main famous dish here is... read more

It's little tricky to review simple traditional dishes. The main ingredients used for the chicken and bean sprout are merely soy sauce, sesame oil, white pepper, spring onions, coriander and red chilly. Thus one should not expect a totally out of this world experience out of these simple ingredients. Having said that I would still rate Ong Kee and Lou... More

I always eat at Onn Kee Restaurant. Prefer this than the next door. However the food price has increased steeply so if once a while its ok. just dont make it daily. Do not order the chicken feet as it doesnt taste good. Chicken , Noodles, Rice , Fishballs and Porkballs is ok ( both of the fishball and porkball... More

Ong Kee is an old establishment for its bean sprouts poached chicken. Living up to its name, (1) Poached chicken - cooked well done, the texture was moist yet firm, the light soy sauce and sesame sauce blend was a good touch. (2) Bean sprouts - big fat bean sprouts uniquely in Ipoh, nice touch with the soy sauce and... More

I went with 3 friends on the last weekend of March 2015 for lunch. Since we had a heavy breakfast and so badly we wanna try the tauge, we decided to order a plate of tauge with noodle soup. The waitor arrogantly rejected our order simply because we were ordering too 'little'. A shop that I will never go back... More

The meat balls and the chicken has outshone Lou Wong. They have similar menus but Ong Kee has captured my taste bud wanting for more meat balls! Both restaurants have outstanding local ipoh hor fun. Ong kee did not do much marketing but the locals are the ones who know where the good food are hidden. Don't miss it :)

I loved the chicken and speed of service. The taugeh was fresh,thick and crunchy. The only disappointing this was the rice could use some flavour. Rice was just bland. They didnt have the original chilli sauce which is usually served with chicken rice. But still liked the chicken.

The chicken is average quality which you can get just about anywhere. Tauge is fat and juicy but the cooking is average too. We ordered a small portion of tauge for 2 adults and 2 kids. They sent medium size and change it accordingly after we enquired about it. Then the achicken came and again it's way too much!! We... More
