Huat Chicken Restaurant, Ipoh

Cold food is usually for appetisers. Otherwise it is a culinary faux pas. But then at Huat cold is cool. The only cold food I have taken was cold tofu. We just take it out from a cool larder or refrigerator then sprinkled and drizzled some fried crunchy onion, garlic, soy sauce and cooked oil on the top of the plated tofu and voila it was ready to be eaten.

I could not overcome fully my hang-up for cold food, so decided to just go for a cold chicken. It felt cool to the mouth but not to the level as though just being brought out of the refrigerator. The full complement includes, cold chicken, cold noodles, cold bean sprouts, cold feet (chicken), cold tofu and others.

The cold chicken (pic below) was smooth and the taste was superb albeit the very salty soy based sauce being used. This may be the source of complain of someone writing in the social media who felt quite thisrty after eating. Go easy on the sauce even if you are eating plain rice.
The normal chicken tastex as good. Slippery cuts meant expert poaching. Again the sauce imparted the good taste with superior soy based sauce.
A good combination of a very good typical Ipoh tofu
Spare parts were treated well again with similar sauce and I am getting a bit bored on the reliance on this particular sauce
Good short, stubby, almost rootless bean sprouts. What more can I say. Again it is the sauce that enhanced the crunchy and earthy taste
Fuzhou fish balls. Go to say that they tried to increase their menu variety
If the chicken is the queen of the restaurant, this will be the queen. I find the flat rice noodles was not kept properly and it gave off a slight smell of rice products not properly treated. Some points deduction here.
Overall a good meal. No wonder they are on the ascendant and have generally good vibes form customers
