Perak Food -Salted Chicken by Aun Kheng Lim @ Ipoh

It's so popular and that it is better to call to order before you drop in... but I didn't. Since we are planning to have the famous tau fu far around the area, we drop in Aun Kheng Lim to order the salted chicken and we were told to come back after 45 minutes to collect the salted chicken. Then, we walked across the road to the famous tau fu far stall.

Open up the baking paper wrappings and you will find the salted chicken is dripping with juices. with slight aroma from the herbs. The salted chicken tasted sharp and flavourful as the the herbs (dong guai) perfectly emitted to the chicken meat and the meat itself is tender.
