1977 Ipoh Chicken Rice @ Jalan Gasing

The 1977 Ipoh Chicken Rice 

This is one of my favourite Chicken Rice Restaurant. I have been here a few times now, and this time coming back to Malaysia i would not want to miss this out. I do enjoy their tasty and warm white chicken. Especially the fatty and flavourful char siew, love having them with their char siew dipping sauce.

To start off, the yummy lime sour plum drink (RM4.80) and one of my favourites the Ipoh ice coffee (RM2.80).

Combo Kampung Chicken and BBQ Pork (RM16.80)
Chicken Rice with Roasted Pork (RM8.50)
Pork Balls (RM8.40/6pcs)

We did have a wonderful lunch. However, the food standard seems to have dropped drastically. Plus the food does not look that tempting and tasty as before. Perhaps poor food preparation and presentation for my dish.

Further now the restaurant operations was run by mostly foreign workers, probably cheap labour cost. Unlike before mostly are Chinese staff. I believe this is one of the main reasons for the poor standards now.

Location : 105&107, Jalan Gasing,

Critics  : 
Seems very much commercialise now especially with the new "bento" style combo meal (or maybe lunch box). I don't think a bento style suits eating chicken rice. 

Will i be back? Probably.

They now have many branches, including one in Midvalley Mall. There is one near my house but I seldom go there now due to its high prices when I can get cheaper options with nearly similar quality food.

Hi Mun yes the prices have increased and does not look attractive anymore. Further like you say, there are cheaper options out there with similar quality. Probably will be my last visit.
