How can you miss Aun Kheng Lim’s salt-baked chicken if you are around Ipoh? I’d seen people bought it in bulks, probably 10 to 12 boxes of them. However, they major income would be the household business where housewives bought the chicken on a lazy-to-cook day. My mum is one of these housewives. The chicken are packeged nice boxes, as you can see from Aun Kheng Lim. They have included reheat instruction on the packaging too.
I consider myself lucky because the branch is located somewhere near my Ipoh house. What I have to do is just to give them a call and specify the time that I want the chicken to be delivered. The whole ugly act of tearing and gobbling take place in my dining table. :p

It is perfect with some mixture of pounded chilli, garlic, onion and lime sauce dipping made by Kampungboy’s mummy!
