Made-In-Penang salted chicken

We found a salted chicken shop in Jalan Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim. It is somewhere in the middle, where the traffic light to turn into Jalan Sir Ibrahim is. There is a mini-market call Swi Huat and if I am not mistaken, the salted chicken shop is where Rhythm Bookshop was.


The shop is Luck Ee and looks modern and very much like the types we found in Ipoh town. However, the chicken is rather expensive at RM22 per chicken. Offhand, I cannot remember how much the salted chicken in Ipoh costs but it is definitely not over RM20.

The chicken is a kampung chicken and is really, really small. As you can see above, it is mostly skin and bones. Taste wise, it is not as good as the one from Ipoh. The other thing is they do not use the glass paper but use several layers of aluminium foil. The foil tore and the soup seeped out which make the whole box rather messy.

Well, if you are hankering for salted chicken and are not going to Ipoh anytime soon, then, do give it a try. I am now hoping for a trip to Ipoh soon to taste their salted duck. I love salted duck more than chicken because the duck has more meat and the meat is more flavourful and firmer. However, I have forgotten the name of the shop in Ipoh. (it is not the more famous one but another shop nearby the Lou Wong chicken rice place)

    Another salted chicken sold at Penang? Wow.. that’s something new.. thought the only place is at the coffee shop that sells roti bakar in the morning on the way going to the Airport. Else, will always think of buying salted chicken whenever drop by Ipoh.

    Good… now no need to go all the way to Ipoh to buy…RM22 sounds expensive for a salted chicken but then then no need to travel to Ipoh anymore…

    There is another salted chicken stall in Penang. It’s located at Teluk Bayan coffee shop, but I’ve never tried it before, so I don’t really know how it tastes like.

    I love the Ipoh salted chicken! I’ve never tried the famous one (Aun Kheng Lim) yet, though … always sold out. I’ve only eaten the one from the other shop (the one that you like, Lilian). RM17 per bird. Very nice!

    Finally, Penangites get to buy this salted chicken besides the one near the airport. From the photo, it looks a bit watery as compare to those sold in Ipoh but never the less I will try one of it.

    Thanks for sharing

    There is a similar one at Telok Bayan foodcourt. Don’t know if it’s a branch of Luck Ee.The foodcourt is next to B Suite near Bukit Jambul, behind the Shell station.

    Cost the same. I have tasted it. Not too great! Not going to eat again.

    Well, this might be strange to a lot of youngsters but these kind of salted chicken had already existed once in Penang before. In my memories, there were once had a hawker sold this salted chicken Church Street near Penang Road more than 20 years ago. (now UPR)
