Restoran Loke Yun Ampang Chicken Rice – Best Poach Chicken Rice in Klang Valley

A few months back, my colleague (whole bunch of Food POI members) all of sudden get chicken rice frenzy. I guess they probably sick of looking at pork already when I drag them to have bak kut teh weekly over the weekend to pick the best out in Klang. Somehow the result still undetermined yet.

So we went and dig the best chicken rice in Klang Valley. First we had Chong Yien’s located at Section 17 just right opposite 6 to 10 Grill and behind My Elephant Thai Restaurant. This one very famous for its roast chicken, ch and roast pork. Sold out mostly at 1.30pm max! Rice wise, so so. Chai Boey, damn good! Price wise, the most expensive chicken rice in PJ on the hawker chicken rice category. Poach chicken not available here.

Next one is the 2007 Hainanese Chicken Rice Champ at Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara. Restoran Tasty Chicken Rice which for their roasted chicken and braised chicken feet. Chicken is good but rice quality is inconsistent. The chicken alone were marinated with some spices and then send to roast. The roast chicken sold out very fast. Usually finish within 2 hours time. Poach chicken wise, I never try it before as the chicken rice competition picture never show they are good in that!

Come to poach chicken, it is pretty hard to find a good ones in Klang Valley and PJ. My coleaque being a chicken rice pot (one day no eat chicken rice cannot sleep), he recommend me to have our lunch in Ampang. When he mention Ampang, automatically Yong Tau Fu came in mind. He said NO! NO! NO! ….. we go Ampang eat chicken rice. I am pretty doubtful when he said this so we went and give it a try.

It is a hell to find parking here. Usually people will double park or go one big round and turn into their back alley for parking and enter from back door.

Only poached chicken. No BBQ no Fry! Chicken come in 2 types. Corn fed (Farm Chicken) which pretty yellowish and normal chicken.

The chili doesn’t taste that spicy. But eventually as you eat, the more you scoop the more kick you get. They put a lot of lime juice inside and the sour taste make you just want to eat more. When the spiciness start to kick in, you will start to sweat.

1/2 Bird Normal Poached Chicken – RM20

Poach chicken is all about the timing and skill you prepare the chicken. Though this is a normal chicken, the meat was tender, smooth and juicy.

1/2 Bird Corn Fed Chicken – RM30

This chicken taste the best when poached. The meat slightly more tender than the normal chicken that you see above. We order 1/2 1/2 from each to test out which one taste better. The result every one went for the corn fed chicken. One of my colleague dunno how to differentiate the difference between this 2 chicken. She don’t dare to eat this chicken at first. She ask whether this is an overnight left over chicken? She never had this type of chicken before. We all laugh so hard when she said that. End up she shift plate with my corn fed chicken and placed in front of her.

Not to forget about chicken innards and intestines which pretty bouncy. I don’t take innards so no comment. But from their face I can tell it taste good! They clear the whole plate.
