Ikkaku chicken is legendary on the island of Shikoku. Personally, if I am not eating udon while visiting Kagawa Prefecture on the island of Shikoku, I am probably eating chicken at Ikkaku. The Dokigawa (Doki river) branch is the biggest Ikkaku restaurant I have visited so far and it’s busy.
When I googled up Malacca , I found that the city was famous for chicken rice ball and by luck, one very early morning, I ended strolling aimlessly in front of Kedai Kopi Chung Wah on Jonker street. The open door and the absence of a huge line just drew me in.
We spent 5 days in Malacca which turned out to be a long and boring 5 days filled with amazing food. Malacca or Melaka is a stunning beautiful city, but you can visit everything in 2 days. We started and ended our visit to Malacca with the life changing Pak Putra tandoori chicken. Yes, tandoori chicken can be this good!
We got off the train at the beautiful Ipoh station, walked to our hotel and waltzed into Lou Wong almost right away to enjoy our first beansprout and chicken. Lou Wong is apparently the most famous restaurant in Ipoh.
Chances are you won’t stumble upon Akari Nagahama ramen shop on your Sunday stroll unless your idea of fun is walking around Tamashima. Akari is one of these places frequented by locals where the food is cheap, plentiful and delicious.
