Well, the signboard also reads, Ibu Pejabat (berhawa dingin). Put simply, this place has got a loooong name and history. Many say the neighbouring "Low Wong" is better but it's only opened from 5pm if i'm not wrong.
Coming down from Camerons, we decided to stop by at Ipoh for lunch after a lengthy drive (thanks to the traffic stopages along the roads). Allow me to vent some of my frustration here...
So, what's famous in Ipoh? Pretty girls, hor fun (kuey teow) and nga choi kai (tauge ayam). I can probably attest to all of that by now and my recent experience at Onn Kee can only substantiate this claim better. When we arrived, this place was already pretty packed with customers and we had to wait for tables; i hate doing this but i'm afraid i cannot afford not to do so. Fortunately, 2 tables were cleared after 15 minutes and we got our seats. We all had kuey teow soup, bean sprouts and the infamous chicken.
Ze Kuey Teow Soup...... very fine kuey teow strips.. lovely texture
Ze chicken... i love the soya sauce based gravy...
The bean sprouts... samelar.. crunchy and not too soft..
Ended up with 2 bowls of kuey teow soup in my tummy.
Price: Unknown as it was someone else's treat.... hehe
