Ipoh Bean Sprout Chicken – Crystal Mall

Ipoh is one of the largest cities in Malaysia and, Bean Sprout Chicken is one of the classic Malaysian dishes that they are known for. So, you’d think that we’d order the Ipoh bean sprout chicken when we came across the food stall with the same name.

Angie’s Malaysian Eatery – Bruneian Malaysian Food
