This place is usually less busy than the place next door so there's a good chance that you can grab a seat here. Not fpr no reason though as the chicken is a little chewy and the bbq pork is made with a LOT of salt and soy. There's a lot of better chicken rice in this area to be honest..

This area has many chicken rice shop. Many of them are very famous. Famous does not mean good. Famous names are mainly cater to tourists.

This shop occupies 2 shops, which has a very large shop front. Inside were spacious and tables are well spaced out. So you would not feel claustrophobic.

A much quieter shop, but there are many customers walk in to do take away.

So don't judge the book by its cover.

The poached chicken is really good and you can choose which part of the chicken you want, by just telling the owner.

The foreign workers are very friendly and attentive too. They do understand some Cantonese.

Their roast pork and duck leg wrap is also good, even though it is not their forte.

This is the place to come for chicken rice.

If you want to have some real deal of poached chicken rice or more popularly known as Ipoh bean sprout chicken rice, Restoran Rasa Sayang has got to be the place, at least in my books.

Occupying 2 shop lots, RRS is clean, airy and service is quick and efficient! Most of all, the foreign workers are all polite and nice! Another plus point with RRS is they open for business as early as 10am, unlike some which won't roll up their shutters till way past 1130!

We ordered :-

1) Poached drumstick rice @ RM 6.30 - chicken is silky smooth and the portion is generous.

2) Roast chicken breast with roast pork rice @ RM 7.80 - chicken is moist, skin is savory, roast pork too with additional crisp over its skin. Meat is succulent and juicy.

3) 2 x Poached chicken breast with char siew rice @ RM 7.80 - Chicken meat is moist despite being the breast part. Char siew almost melts in your mouth. Pretty decent stuff I must say. We ordered the half fat/half lean cut!

All the sets came with generous serving of flavorful rice (with a dollop of self concocted soy sauce) together with a bowl of boiled soup, ginger and chili sauce.

Overall, a very satisfied and simple meal at a nice restaurant where you don't have to queue for years nor tolerate the nonsensical attitudes of the operators and workers! On the contrary, the owner of RRS is very polite and friendly.

Will certainly come back again if we crave for some chooks while in Ipoh!
