This is the spring-off of the famous Lou Wong chicken taugeh in town. It's run by the sister of Lou Wong and personally it taste better than the original Lou Wong. Chicken is succulent and the Hor fun is very smooth.

One of the famous local dish. The chicken taste good but is tougher than the ones I had in Singapore. Unique taste. Ambience wise it is the same as any local coffee shop. Go after or before peak hours so you do not have to wait too long for a sit

Famous for bean sprouts production, Buntong is the place to be to get them fresh and crunchy! Added with the famous Chicken pieces/slices and a bowl of noodles, they pack the right punch for Ipoh's infamous Tauge Chicken and Noodles alliance!

Chicken and bean sprout is better than Lou Wong and Ong Kee not the noodles soup. Most of us who stay in Ipoh are not able to find the place unless someone take us there. They should put signboard so those from outstation can enjoy this place. Is more locals there..

Situated deep in the Buntong village. Patrons most are indians & chinese. Non Halal. They are famous for smooth coated chicken with side dish bean sprout added with specially mixed sesame oil/Light Soya Sauce & ????? sauce. Try it, if you tummy has still place to fill.
