I was on my way driving back and oh hell, forgot to ask the number of my friend, where she just came back from Melbourne and was at Ipoh. Totally forgot about that. Then dropping by at this Ipoh town where every one been talking about the Ipoh Nga Choi Kai at Restaurant Onn Kee. Came here for the 3rd time but the other stall did not open so try up this stall. No Choice. Either this or that. So it is this.

Trying out at restaurant Ong Kee. It was around 6pm and the tables was nearly fully occupied. This shows how good the business are but of course cannot compare with Murni @ SS 2 or Steven’s Corner @ OUG / Jln Genting Klang. They are crazee. Occupied the whole street.

 Not only that. They are quite well known for their chicken feet too.

As some of them order chicken skin with some spare part like chicken gizzard, none of the people on my table eat it besides me. Smooth chicken skin with soy sauce just make it simple and nice to chew.

To be in this town and eat chicken rice, their fatty juicy tauge (bean sprout) is not to be miss, and why is their tauge is thick and juicy. Well, I was being told by my friend that they grow in natural mineral water flowing from moutain. That is why the tauge here is fat, juicy and crunchy.

One of my favourite in this stall is their pork ball and fish ball. Something nice to chew and dip onto their chicken meat sauce.

Find that Onn Kee ‘Ngah Choi Kai’ a.k.a ‘Tauge Ayam’ taste much better than Lou Wong. Simply because of the method that they cook it differently. On my personal opinion i think that the chicken texture here is soft tender and juicy and of course what stood out is their sesame and soy sauce base make them more outstanding. This is because I had lunch on Lou Wong had dinner here. That is how I manage to taste on the difference even though I came here many times.

This is the Koay Teow Soup’ that to be eat with the dish. It is either this or rice. Usually all the people that eat here will take Koay Teow but honestly, after you finishing the whole bowl, a little tip. Prepare a bottle of mineral water after that. You will be very thristy with their secret weapon in there. You really need it. That is why with their secret weapon the food will definitely taste nice no matter what. (This was my tip on 2009) 😀

Looking at the way how I blog last time its funny~ kekekeke

This new edit post is a blend of my 2009 writing style and 2012. Spot the difference~ I find that overall, I like Onn Kee more also just realize that I have not blog about Lou Wong before.

Being a Hailanese myself, I actually have not really tried how this traditional cuisine taste like except the very famous and located most of the coffee shop the Hainanese Chicken Rice not until Lingzie and CK introduce us this Restaurant Hailanese Delights  newly open restaurant at Hotel 1926 which is located at the very famous Green House Coffee shop.

Hailanese Food Delight

But this newly open restaurant does not only offer authentic Hainanese food but also a cross over with western also which turns out that there are a few of their signature item.

 

Hailanese Food Delight (3)

Lets kick start off with the very authentic first dish which is ‘Hainanes Mushroom Soup’. As I heard the name I was like ‘WHAT’? puzzle in my head that is this consider authentic dish? It’s a clear soup style (which I thought the creamy soup or Campbell soup) as in the soup base is cook with chicken gizzard, mushroom, and some veggie ended up with ‘Tang Hoon’.

The soup base turns out wonderfully flavorful as I have not taste before, a bit of the gizzard taste yet chopped mushroom did not over power the soup. RM 12 for small and can serve for 4 person.

Hailanese Food Delight (4)

‘Braised Lamb with Lady’s Finger’ carefully cooks and stew of the New Zealand lamb that cooks till very juicy and tender. The gravy is just as good if you eat it with rice. RM18 If you are a lamb lover, this is a dish you must try.

Hailanese Food Delight (5)

‘Inche Kabin (Deep Fried Marinated Chicken)’ is deep fried till crispy on the skin and soft on the inside. RM15

Hailanese Food Delight (6)

‘Choon Piah (Hainanese Spring Roll)’ as I get to know that its different from Popiah. As I know the way the prepare, skin and ingredient used is different yet when it was deep fried out, the outer layer crispiness is different too but when diff with their very own homemade sauce its totally thumbs up.

Hailanese Food Delight (7)

RM 6 per roll

Hailanese Food Delight (8)

‘Chicken Curry Kapitan’ is a bit different from all the curry I have eaten before. The spices taste is different not really spicy yet its fragrant and is cook till dry. RM12

Hailanese Food Delight (2)

Another dish which is different And abit of western style which is ‘Macaroni Pie’ . I did not know this is also consider one of the Hainanese food but to me is more like a bit modern dish. Perfectly baked till the crust is a bit soft and crispy on the top yet when the fork is poke down to the bottom the aroma just flew out and make us very hungry. The macaroni is soft, cook till flavorful with chicken, button mushroom and carrot. RM 25

Next is the ‘Chicken Pie’ RM 25 as its about the same with pie but I prefer this more. We ended up having 2.

Hailanese Food Delight (11)

This is the dish that is very famous among the local crowd or among all Hainanese people which is the very traditional ‘Hainanese Chicken Rice’. The chicken is steam and cooks till the meat is juicy and soft then mixed with their very own style of soy sauce make it very flavorful. If you dip with their homemade ginger and chili sauce taste better. RM10

Hailanese Food Delight (12)

‘Fried Koay Teow’ I just had taste better ones before.

Hailanese Food Delight (13)

If you are a coffee lover, their ‘Black Coffee’ taste good too, brew aromatically.

It’s a great exposure to Hainanese authentic food. If you would want to taste something different you can look for this restaurant.
